Simple explanation why Sorc/Sage is the best ranged class

Sorc/Sage has:

- A 60 seconds CC, with posibility to make it instant cast
- Interupt
- Decent Stun, Knockback and slow for kiting.
- Self Heal or the posibility to heal others.
- Bubble to make up for light armor (sometimes it's even better than heavy armor)

By comparison,

Merc: doesn't have interupt
Sniper: doesn't have all-around 60 sec CC, doesn't have self/others heal.

TLDR, Sorc is like Merc + Sniper combined together, as far as the range of abilities is concerned

Agreed, Sorcs and Mercs are easy to play and are too good for the amount of skills you need to play the class

even tho MMO's dont require skills

I guess when you take out the damage component you have a great point.

Except that a Sorc can neuter my Commandos damage component with interrupt lol.

damage is not too bad for sorc...sure, you don't see 4-5k crits like sniper, but for all it can do it's more than enough.

Either sorc should loose one of the components (interurp, 60 sec cc etc), either merc/sniper should gain their missing component (interupt and 60 sec cc)

you should be playing assault, not gunnery because of all of the interrupting sorcs
