The one skill that ele, a low hp low armor class, has that allows them to keep up with Herald and DH and Zerker Ranged damage as well as engi flamethrower just got a massive nerf. And it's a skill with almost a sec cast time where you cannot move and the enemy zerg can (and usually does) move out of the way.  Then one of the other 2 skills that allows them to do... something... while Meteor is on CD just got a 50% dps nerf. 

 

What the actual ----!?

 

Ele is now useless everywhere? And likely are now out dps'd by DH'S, Heralds, and Zerkers at range...all of whom have more health or armor or both as well as more group support on their dps builds. DH and Herald's nerfs were smaller and Scortched Earth and Flame Jet didn't even get touched!

 

Can anet please explain how there is any logic to this at all?

FGS: Probably because they forgot to put the skills at 5 targets along all other skills that had 10 targets a while back.

MS: ... Well... DanAlcedo said it... Also they write in the Necromancer's patch note: "we currently feel that ranged pressure is too high, and we're making some adjustments."

Edit: To be fair, I felt the need to check whether or not it was an April fool's patch... Unfortunately we are already in May...

Well, you see, 6 years from now a junior dev will slip a buff in that will make staff ele meta...until the following Tuesday, when they nerf it again.  Then everything will make sense!

Junior: Let's buff shatters tone. That will make Staff viable. 

Senior: Thats a scepter skill. 

Junior: A what skill?

Don't tell Anet or they gonna kill that weapon too. 

Well, considering that A-net somehow favors Guardians and Necromancers, I can imagine them digging out Scepter from graveyard just to slap few boons and then murder it again.
