How come these 2 classes did not get affected in the upcoming balance changes? Revenant ( power herald) has been the best roamer for years already and the only contendent was Holo which is getting nerfed hard and already got nerfed in the past. There is no other class with such high evade uptime while putting heavy AoE pressure and CC into the enemy. Revenant is basically a necro but that can teleport and evade while having the same pressure in a team fight as a necro.
Thief has been nerfed hard already and D/P now is laughable and does no damage because of power creep from block/invul/evade and sustain from elite specs. So that literally makes revenant the only viable roaming/ team fight class at the moment because nothing elses comes close except necro but it dosent have the sustain of rev when focused. There is also power mesmer 1 shot but that build is a one trick meme and dosent have on demand damage like revenant does.
Weaver was under the radar for long because weaver was only good at 1v1s and could not do as well in other scenarios like mesmer/warrior but these 2 are getting nerfed heavily and that makes weaver the best 1v1 class that can also apply heavy pressure and hold 1v2s.
Anet only nerfs the Top of the top builds but they dont nerf the things that are just as strong but not being complained about as much. And that is a major problem, for every meta build there is the underdog that is capable of doing the same thing as the specific meta build but slightly worse and anet dosent touch those. What they do instead is major nerfs to meta builds and they leave other strong builds the same and then they do major nerfs to these builds aswell and we are left with unviable and unplayable builds like Chrono and Scourge.
It wont take long before every class becomes a chrono if the way of balancing this game dosent change.
