Akesi Xuni the Scourge mentor has somethign to say about the recent 'possible changes'

Akesi Xuni is the elite specialisation mentor for Scourge, when in dialogue with her she says:
'We've refined our art beyond what Joko taught us. Most necromancers defend themselves with their own lifeforce. It seems contrary to me. We use shades instead.'
'An extension of our power, allowing us to affect the near and far, casting spells from both ourselves and our shades. They're versatile, able to protect allies and attack foes.'

Casting spells from the shades and yourself is basically the core mechanic of Scourge, it's part of their identity.
Don't let them destroy us, you may think it's a little change but it is on par with removing portals/teleports from mesmers, or removing kits from Engi's.

    Anet wants the game to die. These decision are taken with that in mind.

  • they want to remove necro from the game because they hate necro, they cant ACTUALLY remove it from the game so they want to make it so bad that no one plays it

    I doubt that want the game to die, it is more like they want necro to not exist

    The chrono shatter changes, warrior tactics buffs(50% damage buff to barrier lul), all necro changes. I think it is obvious no sane person would make these changes with good future in mind. Either they are not sane or they want the game to die.

    Necros are a class that scale too high for anet to balance easily.
    Poor mobility, poor single target damage, INSANE aoe ability. But still not as good as elementalist beacuse of a higher health pool.

    Having necro having more risk for that aoe isnt a bad thing and will be a fun change of pace BUT there needs to be more reward.

    We need a damage or cooldown buff with this change. More targets are nice but it puts a very vulnerable low mobility class at an even more disadvantage.

    honestly I have only kept up on news about necros balance for about the past year waiting for them to actually be decent in PVE (that is not just a power build that a warrior will easily outshine everyday) with that not happening for a long while, at this point im just getting daily login with daily black lion crafting mats and getting guild harvesting nodes to make some gold for just logging in basically. and to get the free story stuff

    Same here.

    Checking patch notes every 3 months for the balance update hoping for a miracle, log in for 30 seconds before going to bed to unlock living story stuff and to get the daily chest. That's it.

    I did not grind the smallscale (dumbest timesink I've ever seen in an MMO) and I will not start a third class after ANet destroyed the two (teef, necro) I already mained.

  • I totally agree with you, but how can we stop them from destroying us ??!? My main scourge kitty is depressed and has no hope for future :((
    In my opinion they do it in purpose and I bet it comes from a friendly smiley face with best opinions "for company and business", as it might be seen inside there, but covers a deep long term plan of killing the game by promoting an end of what's great in it, without bringing to table a better option as a new elite or something else, … something just to keep entertained the big "bad" bunch of scourge lovers? :(

    Well, ANet just avoid fixing issues by bringing down quality of life.

    honestly they need to just do a COMPLETE REWORK of ALL of necro, I would forgo 6 months of content updates if they needed the extra manpower for it to, remove some of the boon corrupt from necro and give it some more pure condition damage as well as just reworking the shroud mechanic to not be kitten. at this point necro is just a boon corrupt bot, now that is not all they need to do and call it a job well done but that is along the lines of what I would expect them to do in a rework to necro along with a lot of other things to make it more viable in PVE without breaking it in PVP/WVW
