Returning ele player here. I recently responded with something similar in another thread but wanted to make my own thread to try and help get the point across that I think ele needs a rework or some love if some kind.
I used to play GW2 a lot and leveled the following to 80: warrior, thief, ele, ranger. I also boosted my 40 something engineer but that doesn't really count. Point is I have played a lot and fell in love with ele. I love the utility of the profession.
I feel so underwhelming as ele now especially in pvp. I have tried tempest, Weaver, and core again. So underwhelming that onrecently have been trying other classes in pvp. With zero experience on other classes for many years I had so much more success in pvp than I did the the class I am the most comfortable with.
I wish I liked any of the other classes as much as ele but I don't so I keep trying to force it. The class I had the most success with out the hate was scrapper. Tanky, support capable, and does damage.
Again,just doing my part to bring attention to a profession I adore and want to see thrive again.
