BW, do you ever plan on addressing DPS Mercs/Commandos PvP-wise?

pyro/assault is not even close to what arsenal/gunny can do now. so much of the damage in that spec is negated by cleanse.

On my sever no one cleanses lol except me apparently.
I thinks it because the raid frames dont show debuffs, like other mmos.
One of the reasons why I will never heal on this game. Raid frames are just terrible.

I think they have sorted it out. I have not pvped with my Merc for several months, been away, but I tried it earlier with the new skill, and I have to say, you can now use full Arsenal spec and basically blow people away with relative ease, seriously.

I have a PT FB as well, and you know what, I think the Merc may be better now, call me mad, call me what you like, you normally do, but I am genuinely happy with the boost to the Merc they have given. Full Arsenal spec with Gas Cylinder,lol, and do 450-650k damage, I mean that is a massive improvement from the struggling ways it was before.

Nice one, well done TOR, you have finally given the Merc's in the game some hope that things are finally being done to rectify the issues the Merc had.

The net, totally awesome, throw that at someone, then missiles, there as good as dead.

I think one thing which contributed to it is that for the last year you could basically ignore them unless there were two Commandos on the same target. I tried shrugging one off in Huttball yesterday and promptly got decked as a result. They've got some damn good burst from my observations -- mostly on the receiving end as a healer -- in the lowbie bracket. I haven't seen them nearly as frequently in the 55 bracket, I assume for much the same reason as before. They definitely aren't a class to take lightly, though. I'll have to scribble them under anti-Sniper and anti-Sage DPS strategies.

Well it is just quite mental how easy it is now to be a Merc. I mean it is finally what it should be. PLEASE PLEASE do not take away what you have given us, it is spot on and can match any class now, any class and is well worth being in RWZ now because of these glorious changes. Anyone who says the Merc needs buffing now is crazy,lol. Mind you the base stats and a few other issues some people have been having may be why the Merc is so deadly all of a sudden?. I hope that this is not the case, and that it is genuinely a buff for the Merc. Commando's, well dunno about them, but I know they die easy,hehe, same goes for any class it seems now, and if you have heals with you, who needs a PT FB to cause the mayhem. Not sure how the Merc would fair in a 1v1 though?, against say a Sorc, PT as an example?.

Sorcs though are doing some crazy healing as well at the moment, over 1m healing I have seen in several WZS, and the damage they do is not to be played with or underestimated.

Yep. I know what that snare is like. I carry the ball quite a lot on my shadow =)


On topic we're definitely a lot stronger in regs. We'll see how the meta evolves if we can be solid in ranked.
In update 2.9 the game will simply uninstall itself for you.

Talking to dedicated pvp guilds on my server, mando/mercs are still NOT wanted in rwz.

based on all the evidence of RWZ?

get real. nobody knows what is good or bad in RWZ yet, b/c nobody is min/max'd, and the majority of people are not even 55 yet.
