Just a few ideas off the top of my head...

1: If the swashy is supposed to be the AoE Rogue, shouldn't we absolutely dominate them on single targets?  The disparity between Swashy AoE damage capability vs a Brigand's is substantial; shouldn't we have something huge for single targets?  Or they need to give us more AoE/AE damage skills to compensate and allow us to not fall so far behind in AoE content.

2: If a swashy's debuffs are meant to make a mob do less damage, and a Brigand's debuffs are meant to make the group do more damage, shouldn't we have some more effective debuffs?  The mit debuffs need to get something attached to them to make them more NECESSARY again instead of making people /yawn.

3:  I would love to get something similar to the assassin's Shadow Step that allows us to teleport, and preferably behind the mob: which leads me to my next wish...

4:  No more Back attacks!  Yep, nothing annoys me more than all the attacks we have that require a solid back.  It is AWFUL design, and does nothing but make the class annoying to play sometimes.  Make all these attacks "behind or flanking," or make them not require one at all.  Most of them?  Some?

I really dislike the fact that brig gets alot of CC effects on CAs and yet they 1. rarely work on heroics, and 2. are completely useless in raids. They give us 2 taunts and a snap ability (shenanigans) yet no survivability, wheres the 30 second stoneskin? SOE just gave all fighters recklessness which i dont even want to talk about how much dps that allows them to do but it makes us look stupid. so Fighters get heals and defense and scoutlike dps, Priests get decent dps and can heal, Brigand gets nothing, no defense, no heals, and certainly not decent dps. This class is terrible the way it stands, and im sure if you look at whatever demographic data you can rustle up, you will find that Brigand is probably the least played class. and cmon.. let us get both Sunder and Change of Engagement.

I believe the honor of "least played class" is bestowed to the Templar.

Yeah it's really not cool that we have to pick between our best personal DPS skill and something so imperative for raiding.  Especially when we are already lagging way behind the other scouts in DPS.  Add to that the fact that Change of Engagement is largely unnoticeable----leave it to the bards to be the clandestine utility that gets no respect, brigands are always out for personal glory.
