For the developers, so they know everything wrong with the class balance. I can't remember ever attacking a Powertech anymore without them ALWAYS having Energy Shield up.

The talkent that reduces the cooldown on Energy Shield for Powerteches is too strong.

inb4 noobs say 'Energy Shield is worthless'.
Biochem - w/ grenades.

25 % Damage Reduction for 12 seconds, much worse than any other melee class like Marauders and Assassins, regardless of spec.

25% less damage on at pretty much all times is still awesome. You say 12 secs but if it is on almost all the time then the duration don't matter anymore does it.

25% reduction for 12 seconds, on a 2 min CD (unless talented). Hardly ALWAYS up.

More needless Powertech QQ.

I don't understand what you are saying. It's mathematically 10% of the time. The cool down can be shortened if spec'd, but not to something close to all the time.

It is at least a minute down after use (with the "Reflexive Shield" talent), and that's with people bashing non-stop on the VG for a full minute.

Provide some hard data before you make bold statements.

Why a powertech? Don't Vanguards do the same thing? It's always powertechs. Is it just that there's that many more imperials than republic or just that many more republic on the forums?

This has puzzled me for a while now.

Many threads and posts get me puzzled around these parts, but this thread is beyond kitty kicking to me.

OP obviously has no clue about the Shield ability.
