Hello fellow forum dwellers,
Becoming more and more annoyed with the PvE balance situation I have decided to finally write down my proposed changes.
Warning: This is a 15 page document. If you are not willing to read something that long, that is totally fine.
A quick overview:
This system proposes 3 support roles, leaving 7 DPS spots in raids and 2 in fractals.
The three roles are:
The following steps are made to achieve this:
Quickness and "Defensive" Boons for Tanks;
Healing and "Supportive" Boons for Healers;
Might and "Offensive" Boons for Buffers
The suggested professions/specializations for each roles are:
[Edit: Of course these are suggested specializations, and they should not be limited to these roles]
Lastly we bring the DPS Roles in line and allow every profession to have a DPS build that is within a 10% window.
If you have any questions or constructive feedback feel free to comment. (:
