The scepter is the most DPS
I think the sword needs some love? Don't get me wrong I love the scepter just because of it's 2, It attacks 12 times but the sword 2 is really nothing special, Crits and blindness is cool but I think the sword needs some love, The scepter is range and it does even more damage than a sword, should the scepter be a little towards more to be a support weapon than a DPS weapon? The sword is useless on guardian because it really doesn't do a lot.
The swords 3 skill isn't that powerful if you think about it if you compare it to the scepter.
What I think is, Getting close up to your enemies should be high risk and high reward but the scepter is not high risk and high reward because all its abilities are ranged.
I would love it if the sword 2 or 3 skill do 12 hits like what the scepter does, But idm if Anet doesn't want to change it.
Doesn't make sense to me but it is what it is.
