I have encouraged all the snipers and gunslingers in my two guilds to come here and contribute to the discussion and vote, and I hope they will. Unfortunately, the lack of any extremely pressing issues with the class (in my opinion) combined with the fact that we've often been on the lower end of the most played classes means that there doesn't seem to be much interest (which isn't entirely limited to just this AC, either).

PVE: 8 (Silly we have to mix/match to get BIS Set Bonus)
PVP: 4 (Agree - Dot's seem kinda slow motion compared to other tree)

Third off the wall question: Can we trim down the NUMBER of items we can activate and move more to PASSIVE activation? I mean a single tool bar is only 12 slots.

PvE row 5
PvP row 3

Extra: PvE row 8

Could not think of another question for this round >.< But those cover some of what I want to know, Engineering, Laze Target and DPS balance in classes.

PVE: Row 6 (unless that's already covered in PVP row 3, in that case PVE row 8)

PVP: Row 3

Other: Either PVE row 8, or this - it's not in the Excel sheet, but it was suggested in an earlier discussion about the questions

Here are my votes:

PvE: Row 5

PvP: Row 6

Other: PvP - Row 3

I like NoTomorrow's PvP question a lot more than the one I suggested.

Could I also suggest that PvE - Row 6 votes just go towards PvP - Row 3, or something similar? They are asking about the same thing except PvP - Row 3 asks about both offensive CDs rather than just Laze Target.

If say, you want Engineering to be close to the other specs across the board, then that means shifting a big bulk of its DPS from Scatter Bombs ( rolling ) to other abilities in the conventional single target rotation. That could mean nerfing Scatter Bombs and buffing abilities like SoS or EP or PP.

Imo: i hope Engineering/Saboteur stays the same (and that they designed the spec exactly like how we play it now). But who knows It is a good question though, if anyone wants to step in and formulate one (not sure i think it is in the spreadsheet already(?)
I don't want to derail the thread, but I'd like to provide clarity on this subject as my PvE suggestion was to alter Engineering to be more friendly in all encounters.

My intention isn't to ask for Engineering to receive buff/nerf in terms of DPS output to any ability. Like Paowee, I think Engineering is in a good place in terms of DPS and playstyle. Instead, what I'd like is that it gets some alteration to make its DPS more reliable in every fight. What I don't like about Engineering is that it's crippled in certain encounters. Not because of small targets preventing Scatter Bombing, but heavy movement and target swapping. For example, Dread Master Styrak prevents Engineering from being effective due to the moderate amount of movement on targets (Kell Dragon and burn phase) and rapid target swapping (Chained Manifestion > Lightning > Normal).

If you'd like extra explanation on what I mean, you can read my original post in the prior thread.
