TheSwede.9512 Posted October 20, 2017 Share Posted October 20, 2017 Naturally, the coming Balance Patch will definitely be focused on the new Elite Specializations (And probably a few old ones) in order to hammer those out first, but after that I believe that we need a Weapons Pass with the next Balance Patch. Weapon Skills typically make up the bread-and-butter of any build, with a few exceptions being based around utility skills.Each profession basically have one or several Weapons that are drastically underperforming, lacking in purity of purpose or simply cannot seem to carve out their niche effectively. Among some of the most glaring examples are Guardian Staff, Engineer Shield and Necromancer Focus, but just about every profession needs a bump in one area or another.So let's get some discussion going, looking to answer the following questions:What Weapon(s) (for which profession) are you finding lackluster, underperforming, clunky or otherwise not living up to its potential?Are there any particular skills in question that you find grating, unintuitive or just plain unfun? Or is it that you feel the weapon as a whole just doesn't feel right?Do you have any suggested changes to these weapons and/or their skills? Are these changes radically different from the current iteration, or more close to number tweaks?If Yes, what's your angle with your suggested changes? What are you looking to fix, and how do you envision your suggested changes to do that?Are you more concerned with Weapon Skills being effective in a Vacuum, or are you alright with Niche skills designed primarily to synergize with other weapon skills and/or Specialization traits?And lastly, are you typing this from primarily Open World-, PvE-, PvP- or WvW-focused perspective? Do you prefer Weapon Skills to have a more narrow but clear-cut purpose that might make it more desirable in a specific game mode, or would you rather see Weapon Skills designed to carve out a niche in every game mode even if that might cause it to suffer in terms of Purity of Purpose?
