I'm a lvl 48 dps sorceror spec on lightning and I got to say that I don't seem to win against a jedi shadow or a trooper. I have no complains about pve, but on pvp I hardly win 1 on 1. Any advise?

Maybe you are not supposed to melee the assassins/shadows and you are not supposed to just stand still and trade blows vs mercs/commandos. Use the environment , user your long range and heal/shield ability to outlast the higher burst classes.

If you want to play a caster and pwn melees go play a frost mage in wow, otherwise adapt and learn what teamplay means ( cause unlike wow, in this game in matters )

That's what I want and I'm asking for advise, to learn my class well. Btw, I never liked WoW, just so you know.

Only level 31 here but I do pretty fine, I lose only when they out-wit me. I ALWAYS keep a shield on me and start with a shock>affliction>lighting strike is how I start and adjust to my buffs and procs I get. So yeah if its a problem with you not surviving just make sure you use range and LOS and shield+heals.

sorc vs trooper (commando. same as merc, gonna use merc's abilities names): have static shield on before the fight starts so you're not ionized mid fight and can put up a second one, jolt their first tracer missile so you get full stack of heat signatures 5 secs later, use your stun wisely (ie when they pop energy shield) and heal yourself during said stun duration, try to be on the 30 meters line so you can go out of their TM range during their casting time and make them lose the cast. It's pretty easy.

Against shadows or high level scoundrels if they get the drop on you from stealth it's kinda rough, as it's supposed to be tbh, but my sorc still ain't that high level and i might be missing some nice tools xD
