all of which elementalists are terrible at doing.
let's just get more chronos/guardians/holos in the game and delete ele. Warriors can banner/boonstrip/cc. Rangers can still be broken druid to heal/cc/provide spirit, one of which pulse stab. Revs can be dps or support and boonstrip. Thieves can dps and cc without much dps loss and boonstrip with some dps loss if they really wanted to. Necros can be the hybrid heal scourge that also boonstrips.
what can trash eles do? be some subpar healer that doesnt do anything other than heal or give might (slowly through blasting immovable fields lol) but doesnt heal? It has literally 0 boonstrips, terrible access to stability, and cant even cc well without sacrificing dps. Useless class.
