This post is like a reminder for Anet about the issue of power ranger .
I think making Soulbeast much stronger in terms of power build is not the way to go to fix Power ranger. Fixing the weapon power coefficient itself is the way to go there because otherwise you're just pigeon-hole and polarize build diversity.
PS: Pet's dps is around 2~2.5k (Lynx's dps) max if you don't grab nature magic due to target limit of boon application and boon priority issue (Always go to players first even though they're not even in your party)
Marksmanship: Steady Aim, Predator
Skirmishing: Sharpened Edge, Spotter, Vicious
Beastmaster: Two Hand Training, Honed Axe
Gears: Full Berzerker
Ascended Weapon with Sigil of Fire and Sigil of Force
Exotic Armors with Rune of Scholar
Utility: Signet of Wild (Not bringing Sharpened Edge because rangers will most likely bring spirits)
This test is assumed I have all boons and all class exclusive buffs/ banners/ spirits/ glyph/ alacrity
This test uses 6% + 3% power utility and 100 power 70 precision food. (No ferocity)
All Golems have 25 stacks of Vulnerability and Cripple
The test is taking 5 dps numbers from Raid Golem and take the average of that number
Sword Axe + GS: 17612
Sword Axe: 20254
Sword Axe + Axe Warhorn: 20298
Axe Warhorn: 15217
Axe Axe: 18355
Longbow (1000+ range + Predator): 16779
Longbow (1000+ range + LtW): 14911
Longbow (melee range + Predator): 14797
Sword Axe + LB (Quick Draw): 17206
Sword Axe + LB (Vicious Quarry): 19379
As you can see, it is much lower than most of the classes when using all boons.
For reference Guardian can reach 34k~35k with their power build, while thief can reach around 29k.
