Holosmith is the major offender. Same with reaper when compared to any other power version of core necro.
Firebrand also needs looking at. I see zero trade off here.
Even reapers shroud has a CD. Holosmith can go in and out whenever, and can use utility skills lol.
What about tempest, what's the trade off from core ele? Its better than core in every way, you can to overload attunements. And dont just band aid another -300 trait to the elite spec. Penalty traits like scrapper, berserker, mirage are all terrible ways to "solve" (if it can even be called that) the problem.
Or are things fine as they are, with some classes having tradeoffs, while others tradeoffs are minimal, while others have none at all and perform like 5 of the core professions combined?
