***UPDATE***

Sorceress just received a nerf on the Korean Server, this was specifically targeting their damage. My concern is the "desync" issue combined with a low cooldown iframe. These two issues combined are making them virtually unkillable. 

These forums have had multiple polls showing the community's concern and belief that Sorceress is overpowered, hopefully Daum will listen and adjust necessarly. 

If Daum doesn't believe they can fix the "desync" issue I personally hope they will adjust the iframe to compensate. 

***ORIGINAL POST***

Sorceress feels like the new "FOTM"; I have my own opinion as far as what should be done, but I'm curious what everyone else thinks.

Edited by Constance
Ps/ I should have mentioned that I made a Sorceress to see what the hype was, which after playing one I decided to post this.

Cooldown too short and Damage too high.

They are a high damage, high mobility, mid ranged class.

Having all three in a character is going to make it hard to balance no matter what.

Sorceror is a better choice than Valk, Warrior, Blader in every situation.  (Large scale or smallscale pvp) 

More utility, Way more damage, and often times better survivability. 

They don't need to be nerfed into the ground but something needs to be done before 40% of the server has rerolled sorc.

Just the iframes really, I always saw sorc as a rogue mage class so the damage should be high.
THE go-to-class for picking off singled out targets from a group and quickly backing off again, not singling out herself and picking off entire groups.

True problem of this game are broken range classes - the wizard and ranger are OP.

Sorc is the only melee able to fight them.

Ranger and Wizard are the OP ones... trying to divert the gaze to the Sorc. 

All melee classes need a buff in defense...

So you agree that Sorceress is the strongest class.

Personally I think the sorcs is fine and the other classes need to just be boosted to  level it out.... why shout nerf sorc? Instead of buff everyone else?

If you are Dieing 1v1 to a wizard/witch as any other class you are either severely out geared or have an extra chromosome.

The difference is sorcs will outperform equally geared/skilled opponents in almost all forms of pvp.  Yes they get weaker in very large scale fights (40v40)... BUT ANY MELEE class in any game will have this issue, even in large scale pvp SORCS are undeniably better than War/Valk/Blader.

I've seem many Sorc iframe into a group of lets say 10 (in Battlefield) kill at least one or two, then just iframe away. They have high damage, lots of knockdowns/stuns and having the block skill & iframe makes them somewhat OP.

Many say Wiz/Witch and Rangers are the OP, and although they can hit like a truck. They dont have so much mobility or escape, which once interrupted on their big skills they are pretty much dead. These classes are easily killed by CC, they cant just iframe away like Sorc or Tamer so it kinda balance them out I think.

I've played some games where if one class is "overpowered" it gets nerfed to the ground, and others where classes get buffed up to be competitive with said class.

I'm always a fan of buffing other classes to be competitive instead of nerfing to help balance gameplay, but there's always an issue of power creep. Once all of the classes are buffed up, somebody will find some class/ability that if used a certain way is considered overpowered. Then people will cry for balance. Other classes get buffed up to compete. A new class/ability is found to be overpowered. Cry for balance, etc., etc., ad nauseam.

Either way, buffing or nerfing needs to be handled with finesse. You need a scalpel, not a sledgehammer.

Shhh don't tell anyone. Let them keep thinking all ranged classes are OP, especially AoE based ones with long CD's and low mobility.

Yes, I agree. More people should make Wizard's and Witches since they are so OP, won't be nerfed, and are FOTM.

It seriously is just the perma iframe in combination with the amazing desync. Dancing within 10 people and not getting 1 hit is just too weird.

that's how I feel about nerfing the sorc, it'll get to far to the ground that it'll be useless pve and pvp.  Screw nerfing instead fine tooth buff the other classes to its level. Like the Blader and Plum.... lol were is its dp?

In case of ranger and wizard I would choose axe - this classes are far too OP to slight balance changes.

Or you're fighting a witch / wizard that actually knows how to play their class and gear correctly.

Wiz/Witch might not be the "best" 1v1 but they certainly can do well. It's the same thing how people are so convinced warriors are trash, it's got a lot more to do with knowing how to play.

Sorcs have:

1.  Highest Single Target DPS of any class  (Look at the posts showing the distribution of classes who received kazarka weapons, sorc wins by far and away even though they are melee)

2. The best group/utility buffs in the game.

3.  The best Movement/Iframe skill in the game.

4.  Numerous ranged crowd controls.

please revert to my previous post... why keep askiasking for nerfs and cause more classes to be broken instead of buffs.
