can we talk about why the last balance patch did buff nearly every power class in PvE but not ele.
It was not even in a overpowered state before the patch but now it is kinda weak compared to nearly every other spec.
Even if you don't just compare benchmark numbers, but also burst numbers and such, it is behind quite a lot of classes and will even played in a very skillfull manner have a hard time to outperform other classes like holo, soulbeast, not even to talk about mesmer (even after the recent hotfix) or guard (since the changes actually did nothing to it's damage)
Ele is still the lowest hp class aswell as the one with the least armor and brings (at least on weaver ) nothing but dps and a tiny bit of cc to a fight in pve grp content.
It is really disheartening to see arenanet throwing massive buffs around (holo 10%+ heal on a grandmaster trait, soulbeast twice as vicious and skirmishing buff, mesmer 15% modifier on himself and illusions, guardian virtues 10% modifier for 6 seconds) but ele is not gettin anything besides kinda useless reworks of elementals ( which noone ever uess in grp content anyways)
It might be fine as a condi spec, but not every fight is designed around condition damage and it would really be fun to see this class to shine as a power spec in pve again aswell. Doesn't have to be broken op but a small buff would be justified i guess.
