Where are these great def cd's you spoke of?
(I know that we get one with 2.0 which in reality is there to take us completely out of combat for it's duration, you could even say it's a selfapplied cc)
Don't know... Let me think... A healing class... with arguably the best absorb spell in the game... Seriously ? We don't have def cds ? Force bubble, unnatural pres, plus the abilities to stay up longer than a tank (while doing no dmg and very little threat, I admit...) ?

I LOL.

Good dps and good group players worry about defensive cooldowns too. The game isn't overly complicated, hitting a defensive cooldown at the opportune time can really spare the healer some grief and you know allow the healers to actually concentrate their resources on the Tank. Which is win, win for everyone.

how exactly should a sorc be able to stand longer than a tank? (except for the 10s every 3min we will get)
The best absorb ability, I hope you don't think about the static barrier, because that's just a heal which doesn't scale/scales very little with the stats you're having.
unnatural pres let's you live one more hit, so I recognize that

This. Static Barrier lets me, sometimes, flee around a pillar to self-heal. Unnatural Perseverance usually has the same effect. Bubbles are kinda meh and only serve as escape mechanisms.

This isn't a problem with heavy armor per se. It's a problem with how the *devs* perceive heavy armor to give a significant advantage and thus counter-nerf heavy armor classes. The OP mentions the Jugg v. Mara case. But the most notorious example is Merc dps v. Sniper. It's simply a lack of understanding about the game by the devs.

So you're saying it doesn't allow you to stand longer, but to run longer.
The sorcs only hope of survival is to be constantly on the move and even then it's survival chances are low agains most classes.
