When I stopped playing (around the time the path of fire living world started up), power reaper was just barely starting to be accepted into groups (often begrudgingly). I heard from a few sources that now reapers are accepted by most groups. When I stopped, I was just starting to experiment with an alacrity stacking renegade build (with a fair amount of might gen) and now I see that alac-rens requested in groups!
What else has changed? Is quick-tank firebrand a thing? Healer FB? What about thief and deadeye? Is condi thief still whacky in its own goofy way? Did they nerf how venoms share?
I used to think the gw2 meta would stagnate due to ignorance from certain groups, and a "if it ain't broke" mentality from others. But clearly, I'm wrong. And I'm definitely not mad about that!
