My little class crisis

Hi everyone

as the title says, there is one point that bothers me ( and maybe some other people as well), and this time it isnt about "what class should i play, following these criteria (not entirely) but more about a more personal vs comunity thing. i am talking about the chrono and how wanted he is and ooohh boy he is wanted everywhere. almost every content i want to do in pve beggs for a chrono. even if some might say a chrono is overkill, still there is no day i wanna do fractals and i dont read at least one group looking for a chrono alone. and there i sit as a guard main and tell myself "sigh* well if the community begs so hard for a chrono maybe i should be one... no one will cry over you... you will get all the legendaries all the groups... content all. but you will be stuck with this class if you wanna do ad infinitum, the shining blade... legendary armor and so on. but is it realy worth giving up you all time main for being 110% accepted ?"
and here is the dilemma. should i reroll to chrono or stay true to my main? any opinion?

thanks ahead :)

    Yes. Always.

  • Don’t you have two character slot for a chrono in 2nd slot?

    Guardian is fine if your go Firebrand healer or DH DPS... it’s has some of the best contributions and most raid groups would allow if they have another chrono already :P

    i have 11 chars that includes guardian and chrono.. chrono is an army itself... whole team may be downed but it can outlive and revive everyone

    "yes"
    You do realize that this is no answer at all, right?

    Id say stick to your main. Guard isnt that useless as far as i know. Maybe someday anet will be a bit more brave with their balance patches and change more than just tiny numbers in single spells for each class which may lead to a meta change. Who knows.

    Or if ppl complain more about how broken mesmer and his especs are they wikl do something about it. One can still dream ^^

    Agree with "HnRkLnXqZ.1870".

    Tl;dr,
    Personal experience here. Everyone started with something and try something else that looks/sounds interesting later. I started as a mesmer coincidentally, was my first and longest main character. Got tired of the same routine one day. Went through lots of class and sticking on ranger atm (after noticing I swapped back and forth to this class the most). Still love my mesmer and having the presence of one in group, just a different feeling when I'm required to play the class.

    Conclusion,
    Imo play what you like, it's personal oppinion for sure as you can see every class profession have players defending it. Surely some class can out perform yours but instead of comparing what your current class is weak at, try to improve, amplify and focus on what it's good at. Try to make it work; with the help of another class if necessary.

    Yes, she always should to reroll to Mesmer in this game except maybe if his main is a Guardian, which is a decent alternative which, as the Mesmer, is always relevant in each game mode.

    Play the classes you enjoy.

    If you are serious about certain content, realize that multiclassing is almost a necessity.

    Doesn't matter if chrono, Druid, warrior or what ever flavor of the month clas is desired. If you play 2-3 classes (don't all have to be main) you will find groups.

  • As most are saying play what you enjoy and how you enjoy playing it.

  • Game balance is a fickle mistress. You can never count on one class staying overpowered or underpowered for too long. There was a time when mesmers were one of the worst classes in the game. They couldn't cleave, they had bad ramp up, thieves were faster and more powerful, etc. Sometimes the nature of the game changes. Sometimes the classes get buffed or debuffed. Either way, things change.

    It pays to diversify. Having multiple characters is a boon.

    As hard as it tries, a Snickers bar will never move under its own power.

    It depends on what do you want to play. If you want to play boon support you absolutely should switch to chrono. If you are more interested in healing support then you should pick druid.

    I mained healer firebrand for long time. Never had any real issue doing content. But the thing is that community is filled with people who don't even understand other classes and just demand meta compositions. I got tired of all the "Chrono+Dudu" and simply decided to change my main.

    I won't really tell you that you should play what you enjoy because if the class you enjoy conceptually doesn't fit you mechanically you don't really have anything to fully enjoy in the first place. At the end of the day you should ask yourself if what you play is making you feel frustrated or do you enjoy it. Unfortunately, this game has very rigid meta. If the way people demand that you play your profession doesn't fit you, you should find some other profession.

    Another thing to note, guardian works well with revenant. I dont have any numbers on this, but I have always felt like revenant is least played class. So that might also factor in. If demand for your class is dependant on least played profession then its understood that people will stick to already traditional support combo
