Help me decide on a ranged class?

Hey guys,

So I got my Operative up to level 12 and at the moment I'm trying to figure out the optimal rotation/playstyle to get the best out of the class. I like the class' abilities, but I feel like I don't know what buttons to mash at times.

In the meantime, I'm looking for a new ranged dps class to play.

I'm looking at the Merc BH or the Sith Sorcerer. They both seem extremely fun to me, but which one would be more useful for a mix of pve and pvp? Which class has more burst damage vs. sustained damage?

Thanks for your insight!

Both are very viable in terms of PvP, PvE, and healing.

However Merc DPS seems a little underwhelming.

The sarcasm is strong in this one.
