They should add an inst-regen ability in the madness tree, 300 force every 2 mins.
but you have to work very hard to get energy hungry on Sorc/Sage (unless you go and dot every one on sight) and you get no debuff for going 20% (so you spam hell out of it for 80% and then if must, play slower till have chance to regen) while on PT you can burn energy in 12 sec, use 50/66% regen skill and burn it again in 9 sec, and boom, it's all over, you ain't killing an ant).

but yeah, consumption is not best skill around (I think it's designed for pve healers)

He solely always dies.
'Nuff said.

And I'm speaking of levels 10-30, which no-one ever play without gear sent to them via in-game post from other classes.

People don't know this.
My Smuggler always dies from that.
My Sage, too.
And my Commando as well.
Not to mention my Jedi.
(All under level 30, except my Smuggler, who dies anyway.)

The kicker? You sit there and say "all classes are the same", then in the same sentence you will cry about PYRO pt "being too easy" and "easier", which is only slightly easier in PvP only. You counter your own statements in your posts.
Of course people play those classes which are most easily to play and at the same time have most DPS, too.

This is my personal experience as playing a Sage as well.

Cannon fodder. Pure cannon fodder.
Especially in PvP 10-20.

So you truly believe that the other two skill trees just don't belong there, except for their meager hybride parts ?

So, why did the developers bother to implement them anyway, then ? Please answer me this question.

You misunderstand something quite grossly.

You don't stand in front of them - THEY RUN / JUMP TOWARDS YOU !
Then you won't survive for long - escapet when you manage to escape - but you can still be followed by them meanwhile they constantly shoot into your back.
The best thing is when you try to heal someone from a distance, and no-one is protecting you. You just won't survive for long, because people KNOW that there MUST be a healer somewhere ... and THEN they go searching for you.
And if you are found, then someone jumps at you. Running awaay during these 1-2 seconds that are between jump_begin and jump_end ? Try it, please.
And then you are are gone - as a Sage. No-one can help you anymore.
Especially if no-one protects you - which actually happens far, far far, more often than you imagine !

A SWTOR sorc is a WoW warlock.
Consumption should NOT lower your force regen at all. Just like warlocks in WoW. End of story.
