what you thought Bioware were going to help sorcs lol?

But yeah par for the course, nerf the hybrid specs some more, with 31 point talents that STILL suck.

GG Bioware.

Seriously?

Every wz with knights and smugs, get chain mezzed by flashbangs, awes and we don't even get an instant SINGLE target mez anymore, never mind removing it not affecting players lower with the talent lower down in madness.

This is just .... words fail at this point, beyond retarded.

Thats pretty much my impression after 10 wzs as lvl 55, 5 as full heals 5 as full madness.

While its kind of soonish to jump to conclusion, things doesnt look good.

Agreed, instant whirlwind was a highlight of madness tree IMO and it shouldnt be removed while other classes boast a substance of instant and AoE soft stuns.

If they want to remove instant soft stuns, i will be the 1st to agree with, but dont remove ours while keeping theirs.

Here are a few suggestions to bring the sorc back on par:
1) Move Electric bindings back down below Backlash.
2) Lightning barrier benefits should be increased to 20%40% per point. (On live it is 10/20, on 2.0 it is 5/10)
3) Corrupted Barrier should extend its heal ability to allies, not just on the caster.
4) Increase to healing coefficient of Dark Heal more. It currently now costs 70 force on 2.0, and heals for a little over half what Dark Infusion does. For 70 force cost it should heal just under or equal to Dark Infusion. Increase the force cost to 80 along with the healing coefficient.
5) Conspiring Force should slow at a minimum 15/30, but I woul like to see 20/40. I understand a no cooldown spamable slow could become very powerful if not done correctly, however a 20% slow is laughable at best, wasted points at most.

Just my two cents about healing sorcs in the new expansion. As far as damage sorcs go, we need an execute skill, plain and simple. Untill the devs give us an execute skill, Sorc deeps wont ever be viable for PvP, period.

Looking at the PTS changes, I'm happy to note that....

Bioware hasn't listened to a *********** thing any of us have said.

Ice block? Really? You know what made ice block work for mages? Two things- cold snap instant return of all CDs, and the fact that they could teleport out of it OR turn invisible for a short time afterwards so they weren't simply 'return to smashing!' material once they got out.

But, they did add a teleport to SI at least!


SI sins...

We'll forever be a class delegated to the role of healer in BioWare's eyes. If for some reason you're parsing more than other classes in a raid that doesn't mean you're good, it just means they suck. Hitting the highest damage in PvP? Well that's what happens when you use Chain Lightning, Death Field, Affliction, and Force (or Lightning? always forget) Storm.

That's every single class. The people doing top damage are always either tab-dotting or using AOE attacks. This is nothing new and applies to every single class.

The only logical answer to this whole thread is that BW does not think Sorcs or Sages should be involved in PVP, because if they did they would stop with the hot pockers to where the sun don't shine.

You left out PvE too. BioWare wants to see these 2 classes die off because of the lack of players so they can give the glow stick warriors their powers and consolidate them as one class now, Warriors.
