Personally, as a rev main I feel broken and incomplete as a class at this stage. Yes Condi rev CAN and IS strong but it doesn't mean the class is not in a bad place and honestly it really is right now. Power revenant feels TERRIBLE to play and it feels to me like condi is the only way to go; Some traits feel next to worthless and there are a lot of issues the class still has such as not having a core ranged condi-weapon which shoe-horns them into trying to run ren but outside of PvE renegade just doesn't cut the mustard.
Pair this with staff getting destroyed, and the hammer being bashed into bits and we are left with unrewarding gameplay. I've been running builds in WvW trying to find something OTHER than mallyx that works because I know they are about to nerf it into oblivion. So Im at a loss and not sure how to make it work, I feel like we got hit straight in the core and we can't find our air again. I can get it to function, but it feels clunky and less fluid with more restrictions and higher cost than I feel is necessary at any give time and I almost feel like our class needs a rework or to be pushed back a couple patches. Prior to the patch I felt rev was fine, it needed its damage nerfed but EVERYTHING else didn't need to happen and could of been left alone with our damage modifiers and burst being toned down.
Yet some classes feel relatively fine after the patch. (We all know who they are.)
So tell me how do my fellow revenants feel? Do you have ideas on how this could be fixed, and have you been having any luck with builds that are lesser known? (Outside of Mallyx due to us all knowing the time is coming to see him be once again clapped by the nerf bat.)
