I posted this as feedback in the Wintersday Balance Update: Feedback Thread - https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/20457/wintersday-balance-update-feedback-thread/p1
Would like to hear your thoughts about this idea (not ranger specific):
Get rid of all weapon specific traits!
Traits should be general purpose imho (think back if you will on the old trait system in Beastmastery for rangers, it was terrible).
I'll leave you with one example, and idea on rework:
Two-Handed Training (ranger, beastmastery)
Current: Greatsword and spear damage is increased, and those skills recharge faster. Greatsword and spear attacks have a chance to grant fury on hit.
Suggestion: Weapon skills recharge faster, and attacks have a chance to grant fury on hit.
