    Default Pyro or Marksman for ranged glass cannon? (pvp)

    Don't care about living a long time - just care about damage while I am.

    Yes, I know most of you will think I'm ******ed, but this is the kind of playstyle that I enjoy in warfronts/zergs/etc, and over the course of years in several MMO's, I've gotten pretty good at it. I like to stand back, maintain good positioning, and put out insane big numbers. For the sake of discussion, ignore defensive/escape abilities - I'll make do with whatever I get.

    So which is a better choice for me? Which has more dps and/or burst potential?

    Stormcaller is a many trick pony with extremely high single target and AE damage and no survivability. If you want glass cannon then stormcaller is it.

    Pyro has a lot less cannon but the damage is easier to deploy and it's slightly more survivable than SC.

    51 lock is a lot less glass and still pretty decent cannon.

    Stormcaller. Before Lightning Burst even existed, it was still better than Pyromancer for general burst/killing.

    I'm not a rogue, but out of the 3, i would assume:

    Stormcaller>marksman>pyromancer.

    Definitely Marksman, you have by far greater mobility compared to a stormcaller. If you want to nuke you have to stand still for about 6 sec.
