TheDarkness.6947 Posted September 29, 2021 Share Posted September 29, 2021 When evaluating games, having a class I want to play is one of the things I look for. Elementalist is part of what drew me to GW2 because I like to play a mage archetype and ele looked like a good fit. Unfortunately, in my opinion, ele sucks. To me, the class is no fun to play - anti-heroic. I’m honestly now kind of wishing I had chosen a different game and not spent money on this one. I’ve tried several other professions, and compared to ele, they feel like their skill bar is full of WIN buttons. I know there are some that have played ele for thousands of hours and will say it’s fine, maybe even OP in their hands. Maybe it’s true, I don’t know. I would say that they went through the learning curve at a time when things were different and the ele learning experience more fun/less painful. I don’t want to have to suffer through thousands of hours of learning curve in down state just to be on par with other professions. I’ve already spent hundreds. I don’t think I’m alone here. Most of the posts on this board are players’ perfectly reasonable suggestions to fix ele. I know there’s some of that on every profession board, even for classes that are currently strong. But not to the extent that it is on this one (except maybe the warrior board). Anyway, I don’t expect my post to change anything or that Anet will even read it. So I guess thanks to whoever reads this for letting me get it off my chest. 12 1 1 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
