They're awesome.

They should give mercenaries a passive 50% crit chance.

In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Shoot my merc just destroyed a Jug in a 1v1. I forgot to mention he was a fresh 50 with recruit gear and had 850 expertise. It was a close fight! I'm sure glad that I got all of this fancy EWH gear! Man my merc felt beast. Oh well back to reality!

Might as well cull the herd. If Jug can't take a merc 1v1 then they should probably reroll anyway.

With 2 piece PvE set bonus they still do with Grav round....

30% from gear, 5% from Buff, 15% from 2 piece bonus = 50% chance

In 90% of the time I am an advocate of the l2p-issue. But mercenaries are really just plain awful in PvP at the moment. If someone gets after me, I usually end up killing him with 10% HP-Loss max.

What if it were 5 instant cast Grav Rounds?

Yes I know. But cut that 30% from gear down by about 10 in 2.0

Then the setup would still be way too long in any kind of PVP environment.

When I can kill a class without even taking a single point of damage (the amount of damage that a merc gave me was not enough to pop my bubble) more than once, that is a problem. (note: this has happened to me more than once on my sentinel -> having soloed a merc / commando without having my bubble pop, and yes I know it's soloed because the medal popped up).

Mercs and Commandos need serious help.

I would trade some set up time for being able to shoot on the move. Though I would prefer it to still give 2 stacks per cast.

Not that it's going to happen anyway.
