This could have been avoided if the Devs actually took the time to make thoughtful responses like they did with snipers and maras. The sorc and vanguard responses seemed rushed and condescending compared to the previous AC answers. Heal to full??? Isn't that the healers job? DPS should not have to heal themselves unless absolutely necessary. Also, in regards of vanguard/pt tanks, less than half the moves are "ranged". Most of the abilities need to be 10m or closer. Armor? That comment is BS, Juggies wear heavy armor as well and have more mitigation than a VG/PT.

How much you wanna bet the Assassin tank answers will be along the lines of the Sorc/Sage VG/PT answers?

So now we're up to 2 class rep resignations and 1 class rep unsub. The Shadows/Sins haven't even gone yet. Is it the intention of the devs to reach a 50% attrition rate?

Hey folks!

Just a quick update on the answers for Shadow and Mercenary. The Combat Team is hard at work on the changes coming for 2.5 so your answers will be coming a bit later this week. Courtney will be the one posting your top 3. I will be out of town for a couple of days so you wont see my name lightin' up the devtracker. Play nice while I'm gone.

Thanks!

Any chance the Combat Team can pull away for a couple minutes and post a NON-ARSE BASED response to the Sage/Sorc community on what we can expect in 2.5 since 2.4 has nothing I'm sure ATM?

Great many are "Waiting to see" if they are serious about fixing/balancing the game. (Based on H2F and L2P comments I've little faith)

Heck I've been posting about our Force Regen Bug for almost 2 months now with NOTHING even mentioned in Known bugs or forums. (Yes. 4 in game bug reports too just in case one or two slipped by QA Folks)
Sage/Sorc Gate 2013 Combat DEV LOL Responses:
"...you must play defensively and make them pay for trying to kill you."
"...require a higher skill level than many players are comfortable with."

Oh noes. The same person who posted the disastrous sorc answers appears again, I can see it now:

"Mercenaries are not in need of any balance changes because unlike marauders and snipers, they can heal to full."

"Shadows must learn to use their self-healing abilities to heal to full."

I wish I was kidding.

I was thinking more along the lines of "Fact of the matter is, snipers and Marauders can't stealth out like shadows can."

Next thing you know we'll have a song parody of Shut Up by black eyed peas titled "Just Stealth out"
