PT's can keep up pretty closely, merc's can't.
that's EXACTLY what i am seeing, based on my testing on dummies as well as parsing since i've done a few HM OPs.

again, most of the testing done has been in ideal situations (OPs dummy), where moving, interrupts, etc. are variables in DPS.

just swapped out 2 more mods (all 61's minus belt, 63barrel/63OH armor) and i'm up another 100 DPS. (i was using WH Rifle, now all PvE mods in rifle)

My point is, i've yet to be in a fight where i could stand still and free cast without having to move or get interrupted, which is NEVER an issue on VG. thus, further increasing DPS in OP/FP's.

Merc needs fixed, NOW.

here's a parse: 8/8/25 VG/AS (no SS, 9.5m range)

and one w/ SS 3.85m range (8/8/25):
