Do we really need a spec in this game that can deal 8-9k hits in an AOE that requires minimal setup? It's just absurd that this still exists.

Strong Point Blank AoE is important in MMOs, and exceptionally so in SWTOR.


PBAOE is needed to combat the enemy team pillar humping the near pillar in Voidstar, preventing the enemy team from hunkering down right inside the bunker in Novare Coast, combating the enemy team holding the Huttball behind the side dumpster, or giving an enemy team a chance to take a side node in Civil War.

Strong PBAOE is important in this MMO, and every MMO.

Did we really need this thread when there are so many threads complaining about Smash already?

What stim pack you using for heals? Healers getting a 10k heal is not an aoe heal and 10k to all targets.

That's fine. But most times there are large damage AOE abilities like that, they have to be properly telegraphed, usually through a channel or marking on the ground. With Smash, the only indication of that damaging coming is the warrior himself being near you.

Sorcs: Channel AOE Lightning
Bounty Hunters: Channel AOE Explosions
Agents: Cast Time then Large Damage per tick
Snipers: Channel, low damage blaster volley
Warriors: Instant, large damage

If you can't tell when they're going to do it, there isn't a whole lot of help for you.

A leap, the stance they're in, whether or not they have singularity charges... The fact that they're a warrior...

Doesn't get a whole lot more telegraphed.

It's the damage combined with insane defenses, they live long enough to do this many many times.
