Well, they debuff pretty well, and don't absolutely have to built as casters. A melee support HG or Dwarf can be a nice addition to any str meat group. An additional aoe snare, str buff, stat debuffs and such.

There isn't that much variety within any of the GvG viable classes, other than a stat or spell here or there.

Now you must build the lies you have told.

They need a root break. The problem is that would unbalance them.

I love sents, gotta be my 2nd or 3rd fav class. They should get a holy dot like darius's fist or maybe access to DK?!

Most underrated solo zone PvP toon in the game. They dominate the majority of rogues, and the ones that they can't beat, they can outheal, with Assassins being the only exception. Good to prevent mine ninjas as well.

IMO what they need is build variety.

I don't think sentinels need love but if they're gonna get any it should be this.

Well crusaders get a holy dot and so to prelates, so why not the other holy class?

because they are different professions...

Prelates are the holy nukers and get a castable holy DoT. Crusaders are the holy hybrids and get a weapon power DoT. Sentinels are the Holy melee class and get the best holy damaging spell in the game. Sounds fine the way it is.

I'd rather just see the def/atr debuff converted into a percentage instead of a flat rate. I'm thinking 40%, since it's an AoE that isn't blocked by blind immunity.

I also think sents need to go back to having nine words of binding, preferably by adding a couple interesting new spells.

I feel there is a lot more variety in sentinels than crusader builds. Most crusader builds are nice only in pictures and beyond that they're horribly single purpose.

Whereas sentinels you see more variety in. I've always love sentinels ever since my 8 man guild needed a spec to handle a big Zerg. Sentinels were our saving grace. Telebombing.

But overall, the class is great and offers a lot.

Sentinels are balanced. Give them DK for some more solo fun

Idk. I feel like giving them dk would make them a little op. Make the debuff chants insta cast with a lower mana cost but seperate the debuffs(ie the def/atr debuff becomes a def debuff and the atr debuff becomes another spell) then augment the debuffs from flatrates to percentages accordingly. You have to apply a limited recast timer to prevent spamming. I feel that would give them the chance to vary some but wouldnt kill their niche which is in the stack. Dk would make em too good of an option for solo pvp which isnt what they are designed for. Also a holy dot would make them a little too good at solo and provide only a small bit of aid in mine or bane pvp, unbalancing a very well balanced class.

I have to agree here. I just started playing a Sent solo (Elf BW proccing melee) for the first time last CB phase and really enjoy it. like you said - they handle most rogues just fine as they are right now. I even got the satisfaction of making Chet's scout run screaming like a girl but that's not unusual unless he's got a full group in tow.
