514 Alacrity will not give you 1.3 GCD. You need 664 to give you 1.4 GCD.

I have 2 Mercs, one with CF (1.4 GCD) and the other with Apex (1.3 GCD). Honestly, I don't see more than 4-500 difference in parsing between the 2. And, I've never seen a 25k parse on a Merc. Who does that? Is that with the new 300 Augs?

I'm not good with my Jug and I can outparse my Merc with my Jug. I know, sounds like I'm not good with my Merc either, but I am. I run Arsenal with 265 Augs, my high dummy parse is 21.5k with my Apex 1.3. Even the parses I've seen posted aren't 25k, about 23k was the highest, and most were in the low to mid 22k range. (to be fair I haven't looked since the new Augs).

Reminder that if you are arguing about PVP specifically, dummy parsing is irrelevant because that is now how pvp works.

Streamlining is a great idea when you have many abilities. To streamline, you do three things:
1. Combine current skills.
2. Make some existing active skills into passive skills.
3. Allow players to have some options on which skills to have active and which to have passive.
What you have done is nerfing. Taking away skills through forced choices is not streamlining; it is only annoying. You will drive away people from the current player base. For example, my two favorite classes are Merc and Sorc. I will not play either anymore, but will try to adjust to other classes (all of which I have at max level). New players should not be affected.
I strongly suggest that you keep the current skill-tree system until you can revamp your attempt in a positive direction.
My comments come after watching many videos of people on the PTS. The PTS is still downloading for me.
