Golem Rush vs. PoF DPS

Svarty.8019Svarty.8019 Member ✭✭✭✭

As everybody knows, with the introduction of the new Elites in PoF, the power (and condition) creep in GW2 flew out through the top of the building and rocketed off into the stratosphere.

So now the mighty war Golems of GW2 are considerably weaker and easier to destroy.

I wonder if Arenanet might ever set time aside to change the HP values of the Golems (literally 3 numbers in a database, presumably) to reposition Golems where they should be.

    I see a golem rush a day, sometimes it's every other day. PoF does nothing to stop this. The power creep is not soo great that golems need a "boost".

    Saw bunch of them lately and took part in some myself. It is actually much harder to push out to pick off the golems nowadays compared to how easy it was during the "boon meta" back in HoT. You'd lose half of your squad inside enemy bubbles before you even took down a single golem since they are usually used with a numbers advantage. Hitting them from the walls doesn't exactly work either if people have any idea about how to supress anyone trying to freecast.
