Physical skills, will they be getting buffed soon ?

 

Heel crack is trash compared to heavens palm, sanctuary, spirt hammer

Whirling light is trash compared to purging flames

Rolling light is just meh and doesnt feel smooth enough for pvp or even pve.

Flash combo hits like a wet noodle.

 

Flash combo should be instant cast and interupt with some sort of damage bonus for doing so or even weakness and confusion to fit with the theme

Whirling light is such a bad kitten skill. maybe at 2 more hits same duration of cast time.

Rolling light need to throw you back futher maybe like ranger sword.

Whirling Light is fine. You can use while moving and it applies weakness. And when you factor in the difference in CD, and the power damage output it is a pretty decent skill. If Anet increases the burn duration from 3 to 4 secs that should be enough.

 

While all other skills have major issues in pve, Heavens Palm is the biggest offender. It is basically rev herald elite, with 0.5 longer cast time, 40% less damage and CC to only 1 target. It is trash.

Heaven's palm is such a bad elite.  You jump up in the sky, sit there waiting to be CC'd or simply killed since it has a 1.25 second cast time.. (insane)  Then after the enemy clearly sees what's happening, you just.. hope? they don't: dodge/block/invuln or blind/cc/kill you, as well as haven't acquired stab or simply moved out of range.  It's Pathetic.  It's even more pathetic than as Feel My Wrath!  Which is worse then a FB mantra... 

No idea who designs elites but they need to do a much better job.

I'm assuming you're talking about PvE? It's meta in WvW and I doubt it needs buffs.

Condi willy always takes it in pve as well. You take both actually and last i checked you'd first replace signet before you replaced whirling light.

Tbf heaven's palm will still see use because the other elites are very niche or bad for willy. The other utilities however, ive never seen them used.

In PvE only condi WB is viable. It uses WL. HP is used by default cuz the other elites don’t deal damage. However, that does not mean it is not terrible. As I mentioned, its Herald elite, but worse in every conceivable way.

 

In any case, WB is very uninnovative. It is core guardian with a leap. Its weapon and all of utilities and traits have issues.

willbender is imo a lot of fun to play. It sucks that every utility except whirling lights is garbage or mediocre but that's the case with most elite specs or even with most utility skills (base game included) in this game. That's just the way it is.
