Plus the Advanced Prototype tree looks like it will be getting some interesting buffs.

I tried to play a merc and a sniper, but I got bored with the whole turret aspect.
hmm so what do you think would be more fun then in terms of a pvp alt a scrapper scoundrel(i know you said you played a operative,but scoundrels are the mirror class)or a advanced prototype powertech

cuz playstyle wise they both look pretty fun but i was thinkin about rollin a scoundrel instead of a powertech

Power tech is amazeingly fun. I think its the best kept secret in starwars. I've been leveling as pyro and can often to the charts in total damge done and kills. I just (last level) changed to shield teck and jet charge is awsome. So I'm not sure which I'm going to stay with but both spec are very cool to play. Im level 47 now and valor rank 46. The trick is, of course learning your class and limits. Power teck is imho the best ROUNDED class in the game, and both specs have a simialar play style, the way I play. Trick is, weither pve or pvp is fight THIER WEAKNESS not thiet streagth. This is the BEST class at doing this. If they are a malee class, stay at range and kite. If they are a ranged class GET CLOSE (or break contact). This works no matter if u are shield or pyro. If shield, u get jet charge to get on the ranged folk and your ranged abilities are better then the malee sabers, but if they do catch u rocket punch ftw. If pyro, u do more burst damage at longer range, but still dont shoot it out with a range class, get close, use fb and rocket punch, but most impotantly, quell (an interupt) is 4m range, and u can kit malee classes even better, but with the greater damage u wont have to do it as longe.
The new patch wont change this much, for pyro rail shot will take longer between reset procs, but for shield tecks they will get a buff I think as shields will work better. The biggest hit power techs will take, is a high level (48 level and up) hybrid spec of shield-pyro will no longer work (as before) bc now to get the rail shot reset proc you have to be in the pyro stance and before it would work if u were in the tank stance

Snipers bloom early, so if its just a PvP alt that you dont care about leveling to 50...
Not Meant to Be a Factual Statement

The plural of anecdote is not data
