Is a DPS sage viable, as I am concerned its not a realistic possibility as I believe there will be a majority of healing sages at endgame

Tele tree is meh, but as far as serious PvE/PvP, Seer is where it's at. Every point you put in, increases your Presence so I don't see why someone would go any route other than Healer.

Wut? I play Tele Sage and in every warzone I'm either 1, 2 or 3 in terms of highest damage output.

way back when the classes were announced bio said ok you can be tank, healer, dps, if you want but you don't have to be all classes are viable for an alternative. but people are people, whats the the poor shmuck dps sage forced to do group after group?...no one even bothers to ask, they just charge in assuming your gonna start healing...freaking nightmare.

But yes, dps sage IS completely viable and can pack a punch just make sure people know your dps.

Where do you get this every point you put in, it increases your Presence? I haven't seen that tooltip ...is that a specific power or something?

It's only "meh" if you haven't played it... or if you're a sheep.

So, can a Sage do decent amount of damadge without having to sacrifice the heal ability?
