Are Sages viable for PvP yet?

To the original poster,

Think of a DPS build sage as artillery. Sages stand in the rear area and support the forward advancing troops. Force in Balance, Weaken Mind, and if PoM procs Mind Crush are all instant cast. Use them to reveal stealthers or interrupt.

Personally, I use a 1/12/28 build and love it.

They are viable, yes they can be squishy but we can put out good dps and support heals. Our bubble is our friend. I am full balance dps spec and I like the mobility, and I think thats the key keep moving. I can beat a decent jug/mau if I kite him well, but as soon as two or more people are on me then I am good as dead. If you like thje play style stick with it, I find it very rewarding.

um, false

seeing as toe to toe a sorc/sage would lose any dps race with any other dps class

sorc/sages left alone in a good group will put up big total dmg numbers but 1v1 u need to forget dmg and use ur cc rotation to stay safe until helps comes

After playing my guardian and jugg for a while, I went back to sage (main) and...

it blows in comparison.

A lot of 50+ PvP is gear related, period. I have Sentinel and Shadows alts who were no more competitive in level 50 PvP until they got the second level of post 50 PvP gear. Knowing how to play your class well matters, but no one in recruit gear can compete against a competent player in augmented Enhanced War Hero gear. It's just not a fair fight.

And stealth capability is always going to be a huge advantage for good solo defending, since adding in that element of tactics makes 1 v 1 much easier.
