Why Are Sorcs a Problem and The Effort Put Into Playing

Now, everyone knows that playing a sorc is damn there amazing in terms of raw DPS numbers, mag or stam it is the 'easy mode' of ESO. But the problem with it, is not it's shear power, but the problem is that other classes have a hard time getting to where the sorc is. I can do 21k DPS on a mag sorc without even trying, without a rotation, without caring and just mindlessly flinging spells at a target dummy. The set up is your classic BSW and Ilamris with 3 Infal Aether jewelry. And that is fine, on a mag DK I can hit 21k DPS with the same gear set up (using Valkyn instead of Ilambris) while I am being sorta mindful of my rotation. So I am getting similar DPS when I am putting different amounts off effort into it. That is the issue.

Other classes, mag and stam, need a buff. Magicka templar can stay where it is due to the amount of tools they have, but Stamplar needs help. Mag and stamina nightblades need some PvE love badly. And DK could use some new tools. Sorc right now is dominant in DPS number when you barely have to put effort into it. But all these other classes, THEY DO NOT reward effort put into them.

    Your thread would be much more valuable if you made a video, show your gear, stats, skills morph and then rotation.

    I guess shield stacking bothers you too?

    I'm actually perfectly fine with the shield stacking, it's unique to sorcs and gives them an edge they would not have otherwise. It's their raw damage output that bothers me so much in competitive DPS in vet trials. Other classes have been left in the dust as a comparison to the point where I can hit buttons mindlessly on a sorc and reach the same DPS as a stamblade when I am actually focusing hard on the stamblade. The easy mode class should be easy and powerful, sure, but other classes are harder to play properly and are not as rewarding as one would think.

    Unique when every other class can use the two of the 3 shields a sorcs has...yeah..

    Sorc was the best class since v16/cp160 gear cap raise in every single patch, only DK and Templar were better than a sorc for tanking/healing.
    But I can't understand why ZOS needed so long to understand that.
    Now instead of giving Sorc major mending and chains they first nerf the other classes.

    I'm for buffing sorc and not nerfing the other classes, but whatever.

    Sorry to say but in live or PTS if your only hitting 21k on a Sorc or Dk then either your build needs work or the delivery of skills.

    As for the post, it's hard to provide valuable feedback when builds and delivery of the rotation is off.
    Really, idk

    LOL yes because I see SOOOOO many stamsorcs (or stamina anything for that matter) in trials.

    Stamsorcs are already getting another unnecessary nerf with the medium armor and redguard nerfs. Are you saying that isn't enough and you still think they are OP?
