I am currently in all partisan with both Conqueror lightsabers and the Conqueror chest and boots. With a WZ stim and inspiration popped I'm criting for 6.7 - 6.8k maximum and my Dispatch (saber throw) does about the same. Without inspiration I'm criting for 6.4 on a regular basis. Now if I was maxed out in Firebrand with full augments, stim and inspiration I could see some doing 9k, but that might even be reaching a bit. People that are doing damage in the MILLIONS are EXPLOITING BOLSTER!!!


You're complaining about a pure DPS/DMG class doing what it's supposed to do. YES this is a heavy hitting class, but it IS NOT over powered and can be countered in many different ways. I'm sick of people acting like it's the best class and is unstoppable! I warzone daily and see many other classes top the damage and kill charts all the time legitamatley..

P.S I just copy and pasted my post from the thread below yours..Maybe you should of just posted there

Overt smasher defending smash. Maybe the OP is poorly articulated in some of his claims, but the spec is certainly still above others.

And FYI, Guardian smash - Leap, Combat Focus, Smash. To play it better than that you need multiple buttons, to play it OK and viably, i.e. to be dangerous you need only three.

and that's before you get into talented abilities.

They then couple these outrageous defensives with the hardest hitting moves in the game.
Endure pain is one of the worst threat dumps/healing abilities out there by the way. The amount of rage it takes...

Smash hits up to 5 people in a 5 meter radius(give or take a meter). Don't stand so close together.

My main's a Merc, my Mara is poorly geared and I probably don't play her right anyway because I don't have high DPS numbers at the end of the matches, so no I'm not defending this so I can keep lawl-smashing

Boy, it sure would be nice if we had some grenades, don't you think?

First, to the people above, Endure Pain and Enraged/Focused Defense is not the same ability.

Second, keybinds on a guardian (vigilance):

warzone medpack, warzone adrenal, saber reflect, saber ward, endure pain, focused defense, sundering strike,
overhead slash, plasma brand, masterstrike, bladestorm, dispatch, force stasis, force kick, saber throw, force leap, force push, smash/sweep, combat focus, the anti-stun ability (forgot name), guardian leap, awe, taunt, mass taunt

to name but a few.

Is nearly sure than u play an Inquisitor/Consular, dont? Well, how about a nerf to a class that really need it, in all their subclasses and trees except the shared Balance/Madness? The only real survavility cooldown of Warrior/Knight is the dmg they do, no other one, if it wasnt for the dmg they do they could be the new Commandos/Mercs.
Hey, I agree that the calls to nerf smash are stupid, but don't play the "oh woe is me" card. Smash juggs and mara's have a ton of get out of jail abilities. Just be happy you have an aoe that hits ppl for 7k + on a regular basis and just ignore the crazy ppl posting crap calls for nerfs on the forums
