it has been a while since the nerf .
how you guys feel about this change now .
personally I saw nothing changes to the meta, pugs are still carried by druid and chrono or healing rev at gors .people still skip mechanic as always with op dps , aegis (funny how guard complains this doesn't work in raid), healing ,rebound etc .
the so called : op mechanic skip is a scapegoat more than anything for bad game balance .
firebrand still has far more support tools than chrono but it will still be off meta as long as druid spirit is a thing . (while SoI remains unchanged ,harrier druids could keep nearly perma protection and vigor etc which makes SoI boon share less "op" ).
also weaver op dps makes it impossible to change chrono + dps to quickbrand + alacrity rev in fractal (rev has boon removal before everyone asks).
its more like anet doesn't have manpower and time to review gw2 balance as a whole but instead they do kneejerk balance until certain class becomes unplayable .
they should take their time and rework trait line and core spec . but this isn't gonna happen .each expansion will just bring more mess and more "useless" spec . coz there will only be that many slots for support builds (heavy support scourge .).
