Can't decide ....played as op and loved it....don't know if sniper is better or worst?

Sniper is an excellent DPS, using the Abilities in combo can bag some good damage before your target even knows you're there

They tend to notice me pretty quickly when they drop half their hp in 2 GCD, get rooted then drop the rest in 3 more GCD...

I'm finding my Scoundrel healer much easier to level, but my sniper just melts things and has doom amounts of control thanks to roots, kb and ranged AoE mezz. Definately miss stealth though.

stealth is not a problem if you can keep a sentinel at a 30 m range without much effort.

Somewhat useful thread. Remember, back in the starting period, sniper was simply a bunch of people like "DPSDPSDPSDPS LARGE SHOTGUN DPS" and then realizing that it wasn't all that great, and rerolling. Good to know they improved.

Haha, yeah "everyone" was like.. wth Sniper sucks. Only they didn't realize that we've always been awesome, it was a L2P issue ^^ We've managed to remain the hidden OP class so far and with LoLSmash back, I think we can still sit on the ledge popping people making others believe they killed their target solo.. hehe

Meh. it would be good to see some friendly snipers here and there. Seen like, 5, and they are all fully geared and have the "Uber-cool" attitude...

Usually the Marauders I run into have that attitude, lol.

I'm about as laid back and genuinely friendly/helpful as you can get and definitely don't act "uber cool" even though I'm all in campaign/BH gear
