Re: Captain or Burglar?
either class played well brings a lot to the table.
captains bring buffs, heals and the ability to off-tank 1 or 2 mobs. i have personally never been in a group that has even attempted to let a captain tank, so that shouldnt be a big problem. you also bring the ability to rez in-cambat, one with a lond induction, the other with a brief window to use after someone dies.
burglars bring debuffs(and a crit chance buff with counter-defence), CC, and the ability to start conjunctions(fellowship manuveurs) as a burg the biggest thing you will be specifucally asked to do is keep a mob CC'd, or to start a cj/fm to help with an emergency heal, or for power(rarely see people asking for them for damage anymore).
as for dps;captains are basically at the bottom of the ladder, while burgs are more dependent on crits. however, even without lots of crits, burg dps is higher imo.
in either case you will be in the backgroud, however moreso with the burg IMO
