  1. Any competent raider can learn to play Weaver in a few hours.
  2. Beating a dead horse with DPS meters since anet is fine with ArcDPS but gear check is 100% in violation. Sadly it is kinda hard to get proof of someone using a gear checker unless they are dumb enough to stream it like someone did awhile back in PvP.
  3. Ele gets nerfed pretty much every major balance patch for a reason.
  4. If they are only targeting boon corruption then the nerfs will do nothing for PvE because you do not run that trait path anyways. I expect Sand Savant to see some nerf or rework which some people do run in open world PvE but it is not meta in high end PvE content like raids and fractals. I actually do not think it will bleed over into PvE this time because a lot of what makes Scourge strong is tied to several traits that you do not run in PvE. I guess the worst thing they could do is add cast times on f2-f5 which would be a pretty huge nerf for PvE because that means we would lose out on an au
  5. You forgot Firebrand on the healer list, it can outheal a druid. Also, quickness is helping thieves like alacrity helps weavers. If you have two thieves as dps, they need no alacrity, only quickness and might. Where's the frost spirit and glyph of empowerment in Firebrand though?, that's a (non-100% uptime) 20% power damage boost Glyph of empowerment has such a huge inconsistent uptime in raids that people don't even run it anymore on a lot of fights. There are way better utility options.As for using it in fractals it depends on the group comp and skill tbh. If my group was struggling it woul
  6. The idea of LFR was fine in WoW but the implementation was not. The current Normal raid mode should have been what LFR was not the "Afk for 15 minutes and get free items" mode it is now.
  7. Scourge can also give perma 25 stacks of might with some concentration. You used to be able to do it without concentration but abrasive grit is bugged since last patch making it impossible now.
  8. Yeah but the issue is clipping which that image clearly shows even the banner has problems with.
  9. I am not saying that but when you use a dungeon that is notorious for being poorly designed and buggy as an example what did you expect to hear? My point is that it wasn't the ONLY dungeon they soloed ... Well dungeons in general are a poor metric to use. I mean there is a reason Anet abandoned that spaghetti mess of content. No, it wasn't a poor metric to use to assess meta builds because it was the only content in the game at the time where meta builds were relevant. Raid/Fractal elitism is the SAME atttitudes that drove Dungeon elitism; optimized play. Well, not just optimized play, but

  12. Well done :)Which emphasizes the on-topic point: knowing the mechanics is more important than the team comp or anyone's build. There might be elitist LFGs, but people can ignore them and join/start groups that care more about other things. Either way of running the content is fine; the problems only start when someone insists on imposing their way on others. I'm reminded by an argument by metapushers about 4 years ago ... where some of them soloed Arah Dungeon with a Bow bear in some defensive gear. Somehow, they were all proud of 'proving' how important meta was by this little demonstration.
  13. At this point if they let the infinite gliding bug exist on Xera to be exploited with no punishment I really doubt they care about this.
  14. Support Renegade brings 25 might, superior healing, perma protection, alacrity and deals double druids dps but people still bring druid over it in fractals because they blindly follow what works best in raids. Just trying to get back on OP's topic. Still haven't seen any good video run/proof that a comp with Renegade is so much superior than with a druid. Not every pug/group is blindly following the meta. I'm in a casual raid guild with 2-4 people being a little bit better and there is much discussion and theorycrafting going on. I've seen the same in other guilds - the druid is still the way
  15. The spec gets a lot of negative stigma from something maybe people are just mad about how good it is in pvp and wvw lol. I play necro a lot in t4's 99 and 100cms and people often are surprised with certain things this spec can do. The entire uncategorized fractal can be cheesed with flesh wurm and epidemic while chaos fractal almost always results in me soloing the last 40% on the last boss because pugs mess that fight up often. True, a friend of mine usually plays Necro in Fractals, and he's usually close or the top dps on bosses, but then again he does play a meta build.Scourge is really f
