It occurred to me after years of playing this game that I can only reliably play one class and build with out dying and rage quitting on any content past Season 2. There are not enough dodges, and not enough cds to take the punishment you face when a swarm of enemies gets in your face doing their special attacks in staggered intervals unless you get lucky and kill them faster than they can kill you (that seems like bad game play to me where in a game like ESO I have the resources to block all attacks I need to block, and interrupt all attacks I need to interrupt).
For example if I'm playing Reaper no problems there I basically win in attrition fights anyway 85 to 90 percent of the time.
Guardian I don't have enough blocks and blinds when I have more than 2 enemies trying to kill me (sometimes 2 will even kill me off).
Every other class might as well not even exist for me, Warrior and Revenant make me want to punch holes through my office wall, Mesmer feels like a probability gambling game where sometimes you win and other times you die terribly on Chronomancer following a rotation from Snowcrows.
Maybe it's because I play in the Open World as a solo player that only plays with others when they're around but I just find it hard to believe that after 5 years I'd still be this bad at GW2 playing anything other than a Reaper.
So I'm looking for resources, I just watched a few combat basics videos on YouTube which at this point are not what I'm looking for since that's like being taught the difference between primary and secondary colors, I know what buffs are, I know what blinds are, I know how stability works, I understand blocks, I can't aim a dodge to save my life literally I'll sometimes dodge face first into an enemy. (hell as a Dragon Knight in ESO I don't even bother dodging I just block and interrupt).
