A rather controversial comment coming from me I would guess but I believe to have some good points to present to devs and community alike. I dream of a day where elementalist will be finally free from its stats dependency while remaining able to compete with whatever the game throws at them with patches and expansions and for that to happen in my opinion the old idea of bunker ele must die for good
Does anybody remember the old tournament streams where Jebro was leaving the commentary of an ele vs ele duel mid match to avoid widespread snoozefest among the audience?....Yeah I don't think any true ele player has ever loved that, a situation where the line between good and bad player becomes blurred due to the inflated build template
It's not fun for both sides I believe and it's something which should not be repeated.....
Now when people ask for sustain buffs on ele I get truly worried because I know what would happen if Anet would cave in , we'd see a widespread abuse of mender sword weavers clogging all pvp/wvw scene
What ele needs at this point is a "total update on their design idea", I would like to propose the idea of elemental armors linked to attunements and will do that in another thread, here I have simply wrote down what needed to be said, if anybody disagree with me ...would like to know why...in a civilised manner ofc
