Please tell me this isn't true. Arena is dominated by sorcs, sins, and jugs...now you want to give sniper even more abuse by buffing their anticlasses. I'm not mad, I'm just deeply upset because yesterday I had to retire my engi sniper form arena that I have been playing since season 1.

2.8 class changes was my last hope...but even that is crushed. Please don't say something like "sniper ratings are high"....go look at the servers they are from. So, sorry if you're not on bastion or pot5 then you have so easy.

EDIT: I'm not talking about a dps buff, snipers are class cannons.

you know...I can pop reactive shield and hydrolic overrides and still be half health before I get within 15m of a sniper. so cry me a river. the white dmg buff you got made your stuff crazy. you cannot be CC'd. you need to take a step back and breathe. your class is fine. if anything it hits too hard. but let's make a deal, dump all that extra dps you got from the white dmg "fix," and you can have another entrench. lord knows, you have such difficulty casting anything.

Please tell me who gets focused first the sniper or merc. 9/10 it's the sniper, you can freely kite like a sorc without bubble, you're mobile while I need cover. Even when I play leth(mobile spec) I'm still just a weaker version of you. Mercs need a small defensive buff, but you also don't understand I'm talking about engi.

I've done it before it sucks, but why are you settling for less...BW needs to fix this.

Yes but you have a flash bang for a reason, shatter shot>target acquired>cover cover pulse+laze target+explosive probe>ambush+instant snipe. That will give you about 16-20k damage up front an they won't have used a defensive cooldown since they were cc'd and it's one hit so it's very effective. Just gotta make sure they have used their stun break before hand.

It works for me since I go more bursty than overall damage I just need to survive your onslaught and wait out your CDs then kill you quick. Having the health leeway helps for that.

Notice how thats listed under madness? That means that the dot from lightning charge's discharge will do more ovr time. This will not affect discharge for surging charge or dark charge
