Yer, currently in live if you have your defensives off cooldown you can literally 1v1 any class. plasma probe, interrogation probe, poison dart, explosive probe + series of shots with electrified railgun deals serious damage in a few seconds, not to mention it also stuns them for 2 sec while doing damage.

Ironically on my serer, Jung Ma, the most recent top dps was a MM specced sniper. As for PvP; I can't really say much. I don't generally PvP but the few times I have, I haven't had any real fun. MM tree has very little survivability rate outside of cover and it doesn't take long to have yourself targeted when you start critting for 4-7k. After that, be prepared to get targeted down and die quickly.
why on earth would you not take 3 points in Lethality in the Lethality tree?? 3% to your crit chance!! That's 3% of crit rating that you don't need in your gear; so, you can stack more power!!!


p.s. Eng sniper for the win!!!!!!

Crits taking a major nerf in 2.0. The way its looking at the moment, it looks like power going to be the best stat. Even over Cunning. Alacrity is getting a huge buff and looks to be pretty good for cast time spec like the MM.

Marksmanship looks pretty competitive in the 2.0 parses.

you cannot 1vs1 deception on 1.7 currently with any sniper spec.

Assassins are much harder to play to the fullest potential than snipers are.

They're also insanely overpowered

Thanks for the help all ,

I'm gonna level MM until 50, but then I'm gonna try a 4/16/21

is this spec viable for good dps? http://www.torhead.com/skill-calc#40...boRZG0rkrMhz.2

Thanks again!

I wouldn't recommand getting started with a hybrid spec, they're pretty much killing them with the exp. They're doing every thing they can to try and force people to follow trees to the top talent.

2/16/23 is the spec you want.

8% extra crit on cull has an impact on your energy regen, much more than 2% accuracy does, seeing as most of your attacks are tech.
