So I've recently returned to the game and noticed things have shifted a lot in terms of damage for the Mirage. I play fractal CMs and T4 as well as Recs and some raids here and there. (Could use a static). I'd like to consider myself an accomplished player. But I am actually really upset about how much things have shifted in terms of DPS. Mainly for the Mirage.
Mirage used to be top of the benchmarks. Now it has dipped sadly below the average. I get a lot of stink eyes in CMs for bringing a Condi class... I was hoping the balance team could take a good look at Mirage and give us something to work with. It would be a great way to cap the PoF release of Mirages (the most obvious desert theme) went back somewhere close to its former glory.
A lot of what I asked for happened. Mesmers become more shatter orientated as well as more active in terms of them dealing damage vs their clones. It is great bringing ideas up in the forums and seeing that stuff hit the game. Really shows the Devs take what their community has say into consideration.
I would just like to see the Meta change up a bit. I am not calling for a blanket buff or Nerf to other classes. It would be very awesome to see more classes and builds excel without knocking down other classes. Condi needs a little bit of a Revamp so it could play in a more competitive environments such as fractals CM and more Raid bosses. As of now, its just sort of "has it's glich."
Chrono is doing just fine but Mesmer condi, as well as some other condi classes, kind of got left for the sandstorm!
It would just be nice to see the Mesmer excel in more places than one or two for that matter... I'm sure you get the idea. In all, the way DPS is structured in this game rewards a few as well as cycling builds out. It needs more stability... It would be nice to get a decent buff or bump in damage as we have had some ruthless nerfs in the past. Let's end PoF on a positive note and enter this new storyline with a good set of builds!!
P.S. can we do something with staff? It is like obsolete in PvE.... Been waiting to get a legendary staff for a while now!!
More, more. More is always better. Chakata
