They could just take out TK Throw and give us Project Storm!

On the one hand, the Sorc feels dynamic with Force Lightning. It looks, sounds and feels powerful, overwhelming even. You roll in and unleash terrible hell on your foes and watch laughing as they burn to a crisp.

The Consular's Telekinetic Throw on the other hand feels soft and weak. The attack is boring in every way, just a stream of small pebbles being whooshed into your target. It needs oomph, pizzazz and flair. Change the animation and sound on this attack. Make it feel like it hurts, like it can cause damage.

When you use an attack over and over, a boring attack can become monotonous. Just try something new. You say your constantly working on making things better, so give this another whirl. Make the Telekinetic Throw show that Sorcs aren't the only Force users who can unleash the beast.

*Edit* I named the wrong power, it was the throw and not the Wave, sorry.
The Force is weak with this one...
I feel very powerful when I use Force Throw. :-)
Maybe you're not a mighty strong consular like me?
A problem is best solved with a lightdsaber, thats why I use two.

I get tired of lightning on all my attacks. They do look powerful, but it gets old after awhile. I like the Consular attacks.

Hoping that's the new ability for RotHC.

Most of their attacks are fine, just the Throw feels weak. A pebble storm just doesn't cut it for a fully geared Consular.

Well after respeccing from 31 levels of Seer to TK I am like night at day. But I can see how the rocks seem underwhelmed. Maybe change it up a bit at level 35 or 40 to something larger.

I don't know man. You get to stone people to death, which is a pretty gruesome way to kill a person and you still get to stay on the light side!

A third for this opinion. I don't want my sage looking too mean and ferocious. It's not the Jedi way.

I think we could go for something different than pebble throw though, since we already have the pretty great Project. But i would be hard pressed to try to think up a different animation for a channeled attack that wasn't flashy or menacing and different than pebble throw.

So, overall i have absolutely no complaints with it. It fits the archetype and philosophies, just like the lightning attacks from inquis fit their archetype and philosophies.
