Is Ascended gear worth all the trouble vs zerkers?

It is not urgent, but if you play anything that isn't ranked PvP, it is worth it, yes. It is about 5-10 percent more stats overall. (I assume you mean the rest as exotics, because you can have Berserker ascended gear for power builds too.)

also, whats the best staff ele build?

What for? Eh, don't bother telling me, the answer is gonna be found at https://metabattle.com/wiki/Elementalist anyway.

and how do you go about infusing?

Infusions can be bought from Laurel vendor (with laurels) from fractal of the mist lobby (with fractal currency/gold) or from wvw (with wvw currency/gold). Not sure If there is other ways to get em. Basically you put 1infusion/Gear and it adds +5for one stat and you can use 16 infusions at same Time. Sry not native english speaker.

Yes. Point to word endgame, only place where you need them is in raids, and Even there they arent must. They are just something for ppl who really love to min/Max. But ascended armor is more important, coz without it you cant do fractals

But to get that +80 bonus with +5 stat infusions you need a ton of gold.

Or only some laurels and wvw tokens ^^

But only if you plan of never doing fractals because they offer no AR.

He is talking about endgame, so you can either have 2 set of Gear or use those items that let you remove infusion (25silver/piece, so not that expensive)

Or invest 1.7k gold for +9ar/+5 infusions, again not that Bad for endgame player

To me, 1.7k g for +80 stat is really bad, it's a boost barely noticeable compared to the amount of gold spent.Also having to use the extractor device everytime you switch to and from fractal mode is annoying as hell.Having 2 sets is a good compromise to my taste.

Yeah it is pretty much gold for me too, but not for some of our endgamers are buying 10k infusions etc anyway.

There are infusions that gives you 2 stats +9 for agony resistance (thing that keeps you alive in fractals and is must) and +5 for stat. 16 of those cost atleast1.7k gold. And we talked that its easier to craft 2 ascended sets, one with agony resistance and other with +5infusions

Extractor device let you remove ur infusion with cost of 25 silver/infusion.

For a power class, fully ascended gear offers a ~10% damage boost over exotic stuff. Stat infusions add just another 2-3%.

Yeah. For min/maxing only, but well every % counts If we are talking about endgame right.If some1 is however pretty new IMO he can craft his ascended gear and pretty much forget those infusions until he feels that they are needed. It can be Week after or never.

Taking into account the cost of stat infusions, I view them as little more than a bonus. They're nice to have, but I won't blame anyone who does not have them. If someone's performance sucks without infusions, having them would make exactly 0 difference.

You are right in this one. However cost isnt the proplem imo. Its only laurels for +4 and laurels and wvw tokens for +5.Lets make it short, they arent needed but they are good goal for endgame IF you like min/Max.

Buying those as a PvE player is a spectacular waste of laurels in most cases. As soon as you want to step into fractals, those infusions are worthless. I assume the group of raiders who never do fractals is rather small and for open world, you simply don't need infusions.

Well what Else to buy with laurels? And sooner or later you have over 500 of them anyway. And for endgame, ppl usually have 2 or more Sets of gear with different runes, infusions or what ever.

I still agree that you dont need em, its just a goal, like cool skin or A-points
