Maybe, just maybe, we could get to 55 first and get the new gear and THEN see how we compare versus other classes? People are jumping the gun too quickly IMO.

Turanor - Juggernaut, Turannor - Marauder, Turanar - Mercenary, Flïppy -Vanguard
Ele'anor - Powertech, Tyrannor - Sorcerer, , Tûranor - Gunslinger, Turanorr - Scoundrel

Aaawww!! Here have a bearhug! . When you were killing me in 3s in ranked wz no matter the gear (dps gear or tank gear), you were balanced . So enjoy being nerfed just like most classes have been. Year of the vanguard is gone, tis year of the sniper.

If you were getting killed in 3s with tank gear, then you need to l2p. Oh and snipers always had the superior long-range damage AND better survivability than vanguards even before 2.0.

I dont believe it! Small, almost unnoticable - but here it is. A voice of reason in a neverending whine/troll VG/PT thread(s).

Some people told me it might happen, yet i wasnt really convinced until now.

Thank you alot kind sir, you did brighten my day!

Well I am 55 and I dont have all new gear but - neither do them so we are all probhably the same. Thing is - my damage isnt bad - in the end I am at top, first or second, as usual, but feeling is wrong. I cant actually kill anything, sorcer/sage dont even kite me, they just stay there and take my damage

The Nerf isn't that bad.... still top the damage charts... it’s just harder to kill skilled healers.

Once the QQ has died down the True Vanguards & Powertechs will remain and the mugs who only play FOTM classes will move on to Snipers/Gunslingers, then in 3-4 months when Snipers/Gunslingers get nerffed they will move again…. Such is the way of things.

The best players adapt, they will either realise that we now have to assist DPS rather than being able to pull a healer, stun them dot em up and 1-2 shot them. (which was OP)

I still love my Powertech and love the new AOE dot through flame sweep

It’s still viable and like I said once everyone calms down abit they will realise that the nerf was needed. Although I admit it was slightly ‘overnerffed’

More of an irritant than a OMG my class is f**ked…!!!111!!! I QUIT

If worst comes to worse everyone will just roll Advanced Prototype/Tactics

Yep we still end with a lot of damage at the end of the match. But a lot of it is fluff damage much like this aoe DoT. It's nice to have and pads the numbers for the end game if that's what you care about. It's whether or not VGs will be more useful in ranked than a guardian, sentinel, or GS since their utility is lacking compared to all three of those. Will have to wait and see how it all plays out at 55 but so far it's not looking good in that regard.

Are VGs still viable? Absolutely. But are they worth bringing over any other dps now if given the choice? That's what I'm curious to find out.
K'mpek/Keypek or some variation
Vanguard dps for nim progression. 55s=1 of everything.

Lulz, maybe back in 1.2 or whatever it was we coulda killed you in 3 gcds but it sounds to me like your just a baddie and people like you are why we ended up here.

Dps classes of 2.0 have more burst than we ever had so..ya go be bad some place else.

No we are not worth a thing anymore. We die in 2 seconds before 2.0 if we could burst someone down fast enough we could avoid our 10 second life span and live to fight another day but now your burst is gone your dead before you even put a dent in someone unless you have a healer keeping you up and even than your TTK is so much slower than the other classes we pretty much just bring down our pvp ops groups. We are now useless fluff damage.
