Hi I have seen all the class changes on 1st day of PTS and alot more classes have serious movement speed or sprint like ability boosts. The 90second electronet cooldown is to long and would do alot better for mercs/commandos as a 30-45-60 second cooldown.

What are your thoughts?

Please Put your thoughts on the PTS Threads so devs can see it:

P.S. I hate having to post the same thread in Commando and Mercenary forums because it's effectively the same class. Support Class Forum Merger Thread here: http://www.swtor.com/community/showt...95#post5959795

It needs to be a low CD ability. It's way too important to keep it on such a ridiculously long CD like 1:30.

Low CD why?? Mercs already have many tools to keep distance from melees and stealth.
4sec stun
8sec mezz
arsenal can spec 4sec root.
knockback + slow
unload + slow
now they have electronet...

most are cleansable. So they are very SoL atm.

With the current cd it is as long as a concealment ops vanish.

Still, it is a tech slow, so ops should be able to cleanse it.

unless its not going to be cleansable.

The problem is that NONE of those snares will allow you to put distance between you and the melee if the melee snares you. The stun/mezz/knockback work, but after subtracting the one instance when used where the melee can use Unleash, you will only get one of those up before his Resolve bar is full. So you get one of those off, which is equal to the number of times he can incapacitate you. The snare/stun calculus does not favor the Merc vs. an attacking melee. Rather it is a neutral issue that does not alter the fact that the melee can out dps the Merc in a 1v1 scenario.

yea a 30sec CD would be good. and since we still miss out on a 45% armor pen on railshot compared to PT, i still think powershot should be castable while moving, or atleast make power shot a 75% reset chance, i think the alacrity buff will help, we should be able to get those 90 crit 70 alac enhancments or somthing to make powershot less of a pain, +
I REALLY want missle solvo or whatever to shoot regular missle blasts becuase the reduced dmg hits less than rapid shots

Electro-net CD being 90 seconds is retarded. Needs to be lowered.

Well merc needs to be a better class IMO. They're taking some steps in the right direction but not doing that well with CD's and what appears to be damage on the new stuff. Yes the Missile Salvo thing needs to do more damage.
