Seriously, every other DPS in the game has medium or heavy armor (with the exception of Assassin/Shadow, which get...stealth, I guess? I don't play one). Get /over/ it.

Also, you're full of it, I was like the fourth or fifth post and I saw you say to remove it. Seconds =/= Minutes.
Do they not already have force armor, a castable buff to protect them from all damage? I see no reason why we can't get heroic moment in pvp if they can have force barrier. Seriously, you can have your force barrier, I'll gladly take heroic moment to level the playing field. You can be invulnerable, and I can be healed unfairly too!

But don't you realize, kills are more important than any kind of objective in the wonderful world of PVP! How DARE they deny him a kill by taking themselves out of the action for 8 seconds!

The simple solution is to not bother fighting Sorcs/Sages and just killing their allies instead.

It's completely unfair.... Sages can trade off use of force barrier where one heals the one in the barrier, and then the other one gets attacked and nearly killed, and then they heal each other like that. It was intended to serve as a spell to protect a sage in pve, not to make them invincible in pvp.....

If they made heroic moments in pvp. Id stop playing pvp and i can assure many others would to. Also how does that even compare to a ability that sages and sorcs have?

Your solution is really to never attack a sage/sorc in pvp before they barrier....? Really, is that it? My hat is off to you now, good sir, I never thought of that.

I bet you think that was a good comeback.

It was not.

2% max health every 3 seconds is no big deal compared to a bubble that reduces 100% damage from all sources and allows the user to be healed from 1% to 100% health in seconds.

You know that the bubble does not HEAL THEM, right?

That's all their healer.

Their squishy, unprotected healer.
