Because nothing ever gets within melee range of you, ever.

You don't PvP much, do you?


Add me to the list of "would love for saber attacks to remain even marginally useful/viable."

As a class, you have abilities to mitigate an aggressor closing to melee range, as do all ranged classes. Learn to use it.

As for PvP.... PvP is a team sport and you have those same melee range mitigation abilities for when you are caught alone. As a ranged healer or damage dealer.. if you or your team allow you to be melee'ed.. you deserve to die. Learn to PvP IMO.

So ... you don't PvP much. I gotcha.

Incorrect ad hominem.

Care to try again?

Even if your melee skills were "buffed", (Your TWO melee skills) you'd never use them. I can literally think of no spec that would want to use double-strike/auto attack over anything else.

If you really want to get out of melee range then you aren't abusing the metric ton of CC sages have.

If you really want to get into the "lore" then realize that your sage IS trained to use a saber, it's just that he's so proficient with the force he doesn't need to.

Sounds to me like close-mindedness in collaboration with self-righeousness.

Or, to put it into other words : You believe that everyone should believe what you believe in.

I don't know what the sage equivalents are but as a sorcerer you have two lovely instant casts in lighting strike and shock (ok, well if Force Bending procs) that are great for pvp if anyone is able to get close to you. With DOTs and such I rarely have a problem with a melee player.

If I decide to pvp fully healer specced, I can easily out heal one or two player's damage. And I am not really that good of a pvper.

If you want to hit stuff with a lighsaber roll an assassin, juggernaut, marauder, sentinel, guardian, or shadow.
