so since we are seeing big reworks I thought I would make a thread to gm traits, imo the biggest build definer and first things that should be buffed. for competitive modes only, tried to leave traits that I thought were for pve (couldn't help on some). skipped trees that saw reworks. added auto procs even tho anet seems to not want to get rid on them completely, since they don't belong in a gm slot.
ele - all fire, transcendent tempest
war - dual wielding, last stand, martial cadence, heightened focus
rang - empathic bond, invigorating bond, eternal bond
necro - parasitic contagion, deathly chill, sand savant, death nova
guard - shattered aegis, perfect inscriptions, pure of voice, battle presence, hunters fortification, quickfire, stoic demeanor
teef - hidden killer, cloaked in shadow, rending shade, quick pockets
engi - incendiary powder, bunker down, iron blooded
mes - chaotic interruption, bountiful disillusionment, mental defense, illusionary inspiration, malicious sorcery, elusive mind
rev - vicious reprisal, lasting legacy, generous abundance
feel free to add your own, disagree, whatever.
i'll update the list if you guys can help me out. i'm not terribly familiar with all gms so maybe a short explanation if you don't mind.
