I don't mind the bubble stun spec for just the caster infact it's a great survivability tool, but like sweep on its own its not much of a problem but when you get 2 or more sweepers you begin to one shot some people with coordination and its the similar problem with the bubble stun with more people getting the bubble that aren't the casters, they get extra survivability and stun they don't need.

not everybody's a smasher. the bubble doesn't fill resolve commensurate with the stun effect. it's not just on sorcs/sages; it's on EVERYBODY. it can be effectively reapplied twice in one fight. you can pop the bubble WHILE YOU'RE STUNNED YOURSELF. that ability is broken six ways from sunday.

I have a 50 sorcer healer (full corruption) and a 50 marauder. Both are min maxed for pvp. I'm carnage most of the time and I the stun bubble is ridiculous for carnage. For rage it's not that effecting but not every warrior plays rage.

My favorite thing is pulling someone into the fire in huttball, and then as I am about to spinning kick him, a bubble stun explodes in my face, stunning me. Then the person I pulled who in any other instance they would've been dead in the fire... gets away.


On a side note, I'm not a smasher nor a sorc/sage, but if you think bubble stun isn't overpowered you are kidding yourself. I believe it takes what... something like 3-4 bubble stuns in a row before your resolve is full? If you get attacked it's a 3 second stun at minimum, and if you don't it's an 8 second mezz I believe. It can also be popped at will so if someone who knows what they are doing has a bubble on them they can stun you as a melee regardless of how careful you try to be in popping the bubble with your few ranged moves. Also you can stun people while being stunned yourself. Considering all these factors, does anyone really think bubble stun is balanced in its current state? For me it is the #1 thing that sucks the fun out of warzones.

Thing is he is right, bubble stun does suck and so does resolve.

Some people playing other games know that this combat system has huge flaws in it, starting with cc and the way resolve is.

TBH, I have never seen a mmo with such recklessness to crowd control, ever.

You can't get mad at someone leaving the game over it, some people can't handle a system in pvp that needs tons of work.

I on the other hand love SWTOR and will ride it out, but knowing this game is broken in so many ways isn't something I like.

It's already confirmed to be getting nerfed to only affect the original caster, calm down.

It's amazing how hard bubble stun gets cried about, yet many more issues that've been around for much longer go ignored or overlooked, goes to show you that the most popular class in the game is Knight/Warrior.

If they complain, it's srs business.

P.S. There ARE ways to counter bubble stun, you know. Blade Storm/Scream and Stasis/Choke from a mild distance ring any bells? Use your brain. Bubble Stun screws concealmeant operative the worst but there's almost no complaining from them due to the rather minimal population of them these days. Maybe stop jerkin' off your silly smash warriors and play a different class, get some perspective for a change. It's not fun getting chain-rooted by 4-5 force leaps either.
The only true profit in this galaxy is freedom.
