But other tank classes like Powertech (Tank specced) are more than capable of doubling the DPS of a Juggernaut (Tank specced) because their abilities hit far harder and they have more AOE abilities.

So restricting our heavy hitting abilities like Pommel strike during Warzones is a bad blow to Juggernaut DPS.

I know our role isn't to DPS in WZs, but the fact remains that both Assassins (tank specced) and Powertechs (tank specced) both do more damage.

Possible using a Macroable Keyboard or Mouse to do the attacks automated. My Razer Anansi keybord has the options to do timed macros.

I'm a dps/vengeance jug and I'm having problems as well.

I'll usually die once or twice during boss fights, or even when fighting elites, especially if there's mobs with them. So I'll have to go in and kill the weaker mobs, die, heal myself, then come back in and finish the boss with barely any life left. It's very underwelming considering I'm a sith lord.

Yet I can do that same fight with my bounty hunter and come away fairly unscathed, feeling like the most BA bounty hunter in the galaxy. It seems a little backwards.

Questing with my bounty hunter is a breeze compared to my sith jug.....

I'm starting to have the same problem ~ lvl 31 with veng spec now. I can kill a single elite just fine but if there is any trash I have to do the fight twice now, even if I out level the encounter. Kill the trash, die, respawn, then kill the elite. I'll finish fighting the elite 1v1 ~100% health so I was thinking that Quinn just can't handle healing through burst damage maybe? I know sometimes he'll stop healing me to heal himself, but even if I keep all the aggro I'll still go down. I'd like to try swapping back to Vette but she's super under geared and annoying (I should have left the shock collar on her). I guess I'll just have to rush ahead to Jeasa.

All this would be fixed if they gave us a strike that heals us after we kill a target. aka victory rush

I'd like to have a CC that works on non-droids enemies as well.

They nerfed Quinn in the last build before launch. I think they nerfed all the healing companions.

They used to be able to carbon freeze a mob for three times as long as they do now. This hurts our suvivability during solo play.

Whereas other classes like Powertechs and Mercs can DPS through the damage an elite does a Juggernaut tank cannot as effectively do that.

First off their are not ingame macros currently. Second, you can not use Pommel strike in pvp. Third, you can macro with something else. I have a Nostromo Razer controller that I have all movement and hotkeys with bindings. The software for the Razer has macro capabilities , but it's more like recording the bindings and playing them. For example you got a stunn in your #1 and Pommel in your #2 .. record 1 then 2 and let go. and you got that macro. Easy enough. You place your macro on a key binding on your razer and you press 1 button and it plays back as many things as you want to record.
I just came in here to ask why Pommel strike does not work in pvp. Is it too OP for PVP?
