    Default Sabotuer are hands down the most OP class this beta !

    They dont need "Nerfed" ..... they need "Fixed"

    This post may make alot of people angry as they dont want their easymode flavor nerfed with release so close but to hell with that the class is out of hand and needs to be fixed BEFORE release.

    That's weird, other people think the sab is dead. How strange.

    I'm enjoying Sab quite a bit still. People will need to learn to use and time their CCs/Interrupts/Snare+Range properly. I will say, playing other classes/combos helps a LOT in knowing how to defeat them. Spend the beta time to get a feel for each; it will improve your PVP potential ten-fold.

    I wish I knew what build these sabs are using!! I played a sab, and I could not put a dent in a Warrior, but said Warrior just walked up to me, and in 3+ hits and I am respawning.

    So, please tell me this power build??!!

    I had a Sab jump me in a warfront, snare me with a Ranger shot, then apply four charges or so and blow off a quarter of my hp.

    Then I Shadow Assaulted him, snared, and backstabbed him until he died.

    Nerf Saboteurs?

    I think sabos will singlehandedly kill this game and I'm not exaggerating. This is the ultimate class for the sub 2k players of WoW that gets more and more deadly as you level.

    OP? No.
    Stupid and Boring? Yes.

    Whenever I face a sabo I ask: "Dude, why?".
    They are boring and stupid. Yes they are! I've never seen a sabo play any differently than any other sabo. One-trick ponies.

    Detaunt > sabo mega bomb of doom and darkness.


    HOWEVER, I got oneshotted by a sabo last night. Yes, a legit one-shot-kill. He detonated(?) me for ~1900dmg crit. If he had wings I don't know. Did I rage/care? No. I laughed since it was so stupid

    Yeah, laughing about it is the perfect thing to do in beta. This game is going to have no PvP playerbase if voids/sabos don't get hit hard with the bat.

    Sabo charges can be dispelled. Find a cleric that isn't ******ed and knows how to use it. I've yet to meet one cleric which dispels.

    The problem is really quiet simple.
    Right now a lot of people do not have cleanse or cc breaker AND solo pvp.

    Sabo cc's (Assassin Soul), puts charges, detonate, stun, backstab Adios.
    At least in theory. If i am incorrect please point it out, I am as much of a newb as the next guy,

    Now there lies the problem, the helplessness. A lot pf people do not like to be killed with out a chance of opposition, Sab is THE burst class so obviously people will whine about it.

    I think the idea is nice but changing it would probably be for the best. Less Burst and more utility maybe ?

    Just my 2 unqualified cents

    I played a sabo to see what all the hype was about. They are one trick ponies. It takes no skill to completely annihilate a bad player, and they have no tricks to beat a skilled player.
