PVE-wise there's not much difference among all DPS classes anymore, since the introduction of the avatar weapons has turned an already easy levelling experience to a walk in the park. In end-game PVE content, though sorc outputs far greater DPS, whether we like it, or not.

Same goes for PVP, but both classes can be equally fun to play with, each in their own way. Do you enjoy staying in the back and incinerating your foes to a crisp? Then go and roll a sorc. Do you like being an ominous force that can rush in the masses and start stunning/knocking down people, ultimately creating chaos in the enemy ranks? Then roll a SLAYER (should be obvious what I prefer up to now *wink wink*).

A competent slayer can turn the tides of a large scale pvp if played right, and your allies seize the momentum.

Difficult to say who has higher dps because there isn't a dps meter in the game, sorc has higher max crit damage than slayers but they get it less often than slayers, slayer are more stable in their dps output.

create 2 characters and play them to level 20-30 to get a feel for how the playstyle for both classes is. then decide which one you like the most and go with it.

what is better or worse or more fun will always depend on each and every persons point of view. the only way to find out what you prefer is to try both yourself and see which one you enjoy the most.

As a strictly PVE player i 've learned that the skilled/best player is the one that can offer the maximum dps with the less damage received.Sorc is a ranged class which makes this task easier.So, in my opinion,slayer is a far more challenging class to play and personally i have found the "real magic" to this class.As for PVP i let more experienced people to answer.

I would tell you Slayer, because I find the class more fun.
Sorcerers are broken and also a really annoying class to play, OP as sht, just don't get cought, though that's hard with all the dodges it has and what not.
THIS IS MY OPINION, NOT A FACT FOR EVERYONE.
Be a better person and go for a Slayer. One less Sorcerer is good for everyone.

Only noobs say that sorc can easy kill slayer.
Ppls which fights with good slayer in duel know how hard slayer can hit. Make 25k crit on sorc for slayer is not a problem.

If slayer make Backstab-> Fury Strike->Startling Kick->Heart Thrust->Overhand Strike->Measured Slice, sorc will be almost dead.

Good slayer don't scarry sorcs.

The combo you mention is an ideal situation. You'll get that only with an afk player or someone who would be of more use afk.

That combo only works on sorc who has wasted his backstep/teleport jaunt.

sorc has a lot more potential in pvp and pve slayer has more stability

with sorc you can look horrible or you can look good
with slayer evn when you're bad you more or less have some presence (More presence than a bad sorc) and even when you're good you're kinda limited

i know everyone considers themselves mad skills and what not so everyone wants to play more potential things but u should think clearly and have a reality check as to what would suit you more

in the end you should just make a lancer or a healer or a warrior cus they're fotm and meta and easy
