It's been 2 years since anything major happened with Dragonhunter and its a pity.
All the updates for guardian during the past year have only been focusing on firebrand and Core Guardian.
Which is understandable due to the release of HoT, However with the last patch, we have the issue now in terms of raiding that core guardian offically does better than Dragonhunter
All those buffs/tewaks to core, means that Dragonhunter starting to lose its relevance in raids.
You can run Virtue, Zeal, Radiance in Zerker gear and out DPS Dragonhunter.
Meaning to some heavy "meta" people might start thinking running Dragonhunter be a hinderence to the group. (they probaly do already)
To the quote guy from the post in the link ". Because of the fact Core Guardian is using the Virtues Traitline with Unscathed Contender there is no reason for us to record a Dragonhunter Virtues Variant. Dragonhunter Virtues is worse than Core Guardian in literally any scenario."
The minor patches towards Dragonhunter over the 2 years can be summed as
I feel like Dragonhunter has been thrown to side and A-Net either want to forget about it or don't know how to buff/rework DH to make it better.
The Elite seriously needs a buff or a rework not only to it's traits but it's Longbow too, something to keep it viable,
because 2 years is a long time without anything serious tweak or buff, and soon Dragonhunter will in the same realm as Scapper and Reaper.
Forgotten and abandoned...
