Since a ton of people are complaining in PvP and WvW about the crappy downstead ,and many ppl enjoyed the no-downstead event in wvw, Why arent just more skills addet that can kill instantly in downstead?
Thief has one, thats ok.
But what about Reaper? Or the revenants Deathstrike (which "Makes an deadly strike")

    Because many people didn't enjoy the no downstate event.

    I assume. Something like that.

    And because both Thief and Warr kill skills are elites with hefty drawbacks. Can you imagine making a WEAPON skill do that? That'd be horrible.

    Downstate imo act more like a crutch in pvp rather than a positive dynamic.
    I totally understand why a lot of people like it and would be upset if it were removed lol

    Only thing that needs to change about down state in PvP is one kill = one rally. Currently you can get some huge momentum swings off the mechanic.

    I was wondering if it was a plea for a mount available to the downed player...

    On topic, it's because the downstate was supposed to be where cooperative healing matter and ANet like to keep the purity of purpose of the game tools.

    I'd really like them to fix the bug that prevents players to rally on killing Mesmer illusions, Hunter pets and necromancer minions.
