If you are a really good Sorcerer -DPS- which AC of another class would be your thing?

I guess it would come down to Arsenal Vs Pyro? Right?

Arsenal dps is probably the only thing in the game easier than sorc dps so yea if you're good at one you should be good at the other.

Am I missing something here? those are Bounty hunter trees you listed up there...are you asking about a sorc or BH?

Sorc trees are:
Corruption: healing tree.
Lightning: DPS. Bit more emphasis on AoE Via procs.
Madness: DPS. Bit more emphasis on CC.

both trees are viable, it really depends on what you prefer. The current favorite is a hybrid spec that's only viable because Bio dropped the ball and made too many powerful abilities too low in the trees. They are killing that spec in 1.2, so It's pretty much going to be either/or.
"I just hit 50 and finished my class storyline, but I still haven't been able to decide which AC to choose. Leveling solo as a warrior wasn't difficult, so I kept putting off the decision.
Anyone else having the same problem? "~ lagerhat - And who says warriors are broke?

He's saying that he plays a DPS sorceror and wants to roll another alt, and believes it comes down to arsenal spec merc vs pyrotech spec merc.

Arsenal plays the most like a sorceror, more cast times and such. Pyrotech wont pull off quite the same DPS for pve but has more burst potential and is more mobile.

You might also want to look at sniper if you prefer the caster playstyle. Cover is a pain to work with but as a caster you're already used to being stationary most of the time.
