Force sweep for 4k dmg, how?

Jugg/Mara has nothing except sweep/smash in that tree. And before you tell me "but X adv class can not do the same damage with their AOE ability" remember that all these X's can do other things beside their AOE.
The rage tree is an AOE tree, they can not do 1v1. All they can do is jump and smash and then run away. Too bad they are getting a nerf, but hey it is just 16%.


Ps, I don't use the Rage tree on my mara.
These are not the signatures you are looking for!

Anyone who claims that they can't handle 1on1 situations with a Rage-Mara simply has NO idea what they are doing.

Well I never used it so that was more or less my opinion, looking at the skill tree they don't look they can handle themselves as good as Carnage/Annihilation would.
And yes a mara would fare well better than a jugg in 1v1 while using the rage tree. But that still doesn't change the fact that rage is supposed to do AOE damage.

You can use your dodge ability as an operative. Their smash can miss. Otherwise, you can stack endurance, but don't know how effective that will be since it will lower your healing or damage output.

Smash is force, dodge doesn't work against it.
It's a small world and it smells funny, I'd buy another if it wasn't for the money.

All I could do was try to be as annoying as possible. Was kind of fun, actually.
For reference, Scrapper is one of the best counters to lolsmash.

this is understood, but it does randomly miss. Don't know why but it does.

Gearwise, what are the best stats to reduce the dmg dealt (for me as an operative). Would that be absorption and/or defense rating. As an operative healer, should I gear for more survivability (e.g. defense/absorption) or should I go for power/critical/surge to increase the healing numbers?

Thanks
Stack into power because it would also increase the amount absorbed by your shield probe (or so I've been told). Power also increases your healing done.

As stated before, never stack absorption if you're not using a shield. Defense rating only helps with ranged and melee abilities, force sweep is not one of those. So that's useless too.
Everything will be OK in the end. If it's not OK, it's not yet the end.

If someone uses an accuracy debuff on you, that can make it miss. Many smashers skip accuracy completely in their gearing since they depend mostly on smash, so at 90% base accuracy they'll have 100% force accuracy. If say, a PT tank uses Oil Spill on you, your force accuracy will drop to 80%, meaning only a 4/5 chance to land your smashes.

Smash/Force sweep feats in the Focus tree are a joke. Force leap + Force stasis/choke the target to proc the buffs, then SMASHLOL = 5-7k hit on EVERYONE around the smashLOL monkey.

Smashmonkeys need to be nerfed.
