Ever since before PoF, and currently in PoF, Revenant has been getting hit left and right with nerfs. From the beginning of nerfing Shiro evade, heal, etc. to nerfing sword 2 and staff 5 in PvP. Then they completely remove a very valued trait that was well suited for Revenant. (RIP Equilibrium 2015-2017 you're still missed.). And now they removed even another trait, or "revamped" to something completely terrible. Mutilate Defenses is what kept rev even a little bit good, because it offered a lot of sustain and leech damage, but now we have Expose Defenses. Oh boy. So much vuln uptime. (not).
All I'm saying is that I want the class that I've loved since it was released back to its former glory, and not the piece of trash it is, and is being considered in this current meta of PvP.
But hey, let's keep buffing Mesmer as a whole. No biggie there. :')
