    Lol 14% warrior and 85% mesmer as of posting. Sounds about right if someone throws a point in scourge.

    Edit: My vote is specific to spellbreaker as its basically ez mode warrior.

    Shield of Wrath: Reduced the cooldown of this skill from 36 seconds to 35 seconds.

    Quality balance changes^TM

  • Mesmer

    Mesmer is overtune. It is a hard but reward class , yes. But, it may be too rewarding with all the damage you can put out.
    Now, core mesmer isn't op but the problems is the elited specialization.

    I feel like mesmer can take on the role of assassinated people of thief and doing it better than thief. Also, there are many problem that hasnt been fix+ the bad balanced (instead of reduced the radius, they neft damage and increase cool down on sourge ss) make a lot of class in the game feel under perform.

    I do not necessarily think Mesmer is op. It is the most complete class, with multiple meta (if not over performing) builds in every game mode. You want power damage, condi, support, CC, mobility, literally anything, there is a Mesmer build that does it.

    Poor guardian, my main, only got 1 vote 😝

    The problem is... you cannot balance an abomination. And this is what Mesmer became when it power-crept into Mirage.
    There is only one way to fix it - the Axe and the Chopping Block.
    (I'm sorry but no nerf bat is gonna fix that... thing.)

    mesmer / mirage
    Too many complementarities between phantasm, clones,blinding/confusion, stealth, f1-f4, Deception' skills, boon stacking. So many traits and skills are both agressive and defensive. You add stealth, blinks, close-gap, cc, Ellusive mind, mirage cloak, some heals/regen ; In WvW you can add the +40% endurance regen ; you have perma 3 clones, mirage cloak, distorsion/blur or stealth.
    Even a beginner playing with Traiblazer or Dire can win half his fights rolling the head on the keyboard, and run away the other half.
    2nd : Warrior /SB, in a good spot in all modes with few risk.

    Poor Thief, Mesmer basically does them better. Especially with Mirage and the addition of Mesmer 'stealth attacks'.

    Sadly, it is true. I feel mirage discourage a lot of people from playing thief. It like playing a upgrade version of thief that doing almost everything better.

  • Mesmer

    Mesmer was the first 80, at first I couldn't stop playing it because it was like the god toons that devs and mods pull out in other games to mess around with the players. I stopped playing mine because it was like the god toons that devs and mods pull out in other games.... got a little boring, and this was before the last buff. I still pull him out every once and a wile because I like watching him pop 5 mobs in 3 seconds.

    just because its needed because of the boons it can pump out doesnt mean its op, its just that hes the only one that can do it, and those boons are the only way to stay alive with the power creep thats going on, its not fault of the guard, hes just the only one that can provide what is needed

    and mesmer is pretty much needed in any other gamemode aswell, even in zergs mesmer is somewhat needed, even if it was just for the veil, in roaming mesmer is alot stronger than guard

  • Mesmer

    For WvW, one would think the Ele (my main) would be ranked higher based on the number of skill + wpn combos available; however, it's simply the case that the primary problem with the Ele mechanics is the conceptual approach to harnessing the elements and using the elements. The GW1 skills from Nightfall and Factions had much more "OP-ability" (remember "Searing Flames"?). In GW2, the Ele feels more like trying to play a warrior with elements instead of standard weapons (and with much less armor).
    If a WvW squad were spec'd out like the Hero tab, the Ele would fill one of the accessory slots or off-hand weapon slot at best >_>

  • ReaverKane.7598ReaverKane.7598 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Mesmer

    Mesmer is clearly the answer...
    In PvP it's been very strong since Mirage, Chrono was still relevant.
    In WvW it's also a very utilitarian class, and the burst potential is carried on from PvP.
    In Instanced content, Chronomancer is one of the staple, nearly mandatory classes used across the board for it's support potential, and both Chrono and Mirage can be used for top-tier DPS.
    In open world it's the most utilitarian class, being used constantly to skip content in Jumping Puzzles, it's only problem is a relatively weak AoE potential, but that's overcome by it's evasion and massive single-target damage.

    You can't escape Mesmer basically.

    Can't tell if trolling because you don't want mesmer nerfed or just a bad mesmer player. Outside if WvW Chronomancer is the most wanted support class, period, and Mirage is like thief but better. Guardian doesn't really push into any other profession's territory in such a direct way. Sure Guardian is good but not OP good. Mesmer can just do some of everything.

    so by outside of wvw you mean pve. ok.
    you guys dont get it. guard in wvw and arguably in pvp as well, has been MANDATORY. has always had a spot in pve as far as i can tell. ok mes is really good support in pve, fine. mandatory in pvp? maybe, but just because of portal. in wvw? no.
    this thread is about overall OPness not your tears or one thing or another, look at the big picture.

    You're the one not looking at the big picture though, one is good in 1-2 game modes, the other is in -all- modes. Even by your own description as flawed as it is it makes a better case for Mesmer being OP than Guardian. It's not some fluke that almost everyone voted mesmer. What makes you think you know better than everyone?

    1-2? lol what are you talking about. core, dh, and fb have good builds in all game modes. can mes say the same? no.

    I'd hope that all professions would get at least one vote on this. but it seems that the engineer is the only one without a vote. Poor thing. I don't think they're bad at all. I love my engineer. She's great.

    As for Which one is the most? Obviously Mesmer. This isn't even a question. Its been this way since day one. Mesmer has always been in top 4 and usually between 1 and 2 and frequently taking the number one spot. Its got solid roles in all game modes and is dominant in most content you find them in. Their tool box is unique and they're hard to pin and predict. Their one weakness is their low condi cleans. Which they still have some, they're not as bad with that as revenant is, but knowing that doesn't always help you since they can be very difficult to hit and pin down.

    Does this mean I think Mesmers should be nerfed? At the moment? No I don't. I think the other professions should be buffed to match mesmer's level. :P
