If we could use multiple elite specs...

...what would be the meta? I mean, it would undermine everything the devs have planned for specializations, but what can you come up with?
Personally I think Axe/Shield mesmer would be insane. Continuum split, and then using the burst potential of the axe twice?! Or having a Greatsword scourge setting up AoE's would be a melee monster.

    If that were possible, revenant would be way too close to a complete class, lol. Seriously though, it seems like revs should have started with both of the elite trait line.

    Necros would way more fun than they are now, and they are pretty fun (imo)

    They kinda shot the whole elite spec design in the foot with the entire class design of the Revenant... They literally can't do anything unique and different with it's elite specs, every one of them will always be the same as the core class, just a new legend with nothing truly special... on paper, utility swapping sounded like a cool mechanic, in practice it has to be the worst idea they have every had.

    Please stop assuming I'm a male, I am female.

    I feel like we deserve a core tyria elite spec make it a living story thing but something to boost core

    you say mesmer i say shadow sorcerer

  • I think what should happen is, once you have unlocked an elite specialization in its entirety, you can use the weapon of the elite spec without equipping the trait line. For instance, you completely unlock dragon hunter so now you can use the firebrand trait line but also have a longbow as a weapon in rotation.

    THIEF mains HATE them because of this. AFK FARMERS were shocked once they saw THIS [PHOTO][BENCHMARKS][MACROS]

    Air overload spam on FA tempest wasnt enough for you? You can do that on all attunements now! Embrace the new 2 button rotations with no weapons equipped.

  • I like my idea of ​​weapon Proficiency at the final of the traitline and it give us the ability to use the weapon of specialization whenever we want.
    It would be ridiculous The facets along with the skills of Kalla.
    The mesmer with Continuum split along with mirror cloak. Makes no sense mixing two mechanics. Would have to change a lot of thing, the idea of ​​being able to use only the weapon is much better, my desire is to use beastmode using a staff. A Ranger healer without the Avatar but with the soul link.

    dear god. No. Just no. We cant fuze a working elite with cancer like deadeye
    that would create either fully functional cancer
    or cancer cancer

  • Not an elitespec, but a mit of engi and rev: An Engineer with Explosives, Firearms and the Corruption traitline (from revenant) could be a really strong condition spec.

    Thats basically Bleeding, Torment, Burning and Poison on crit + diabolic inferno that has great synergy with the mortar elite kit - also freeze grenades and the chill field which will apply tons of additional torment because of the tormend on chill trait.
    Aand you get lots of free Poison and Torment duration from the traitline too, so you can cap every damaging condi that you apply but confusion...

    Also I just like the idea of a dark-themed condition engineer :>

    I think the idea of getting the weapon for the core spec only after you unlocked it for the e-spec is a nice idea. But the mechanics and utility skills should stay e-spec only.

    I think everyone here is overlooking holo/scrapper with inventions, HLA, barrier spam, hammer, etc.
