There is a viable condi and a viable power version for all professions - first dps role. There is also often (always?) a viable heals/support iteration - second role. In some cases, there is even dps versus support versus heals (guardian), where support can be support/heals or support/dps - third role. Sometimes, depending on the situation (e.g. WvW, fractals) a player needs to be flexible about what build to use in which situation. This isn't always about swapping from condi dps to power dps, or vice versa.What does "viable" mean? Can we define this first before we continue the discussion?Is "viable" equal to "can complete the campaign solo"? If so, a condition build with green Sentinel gear and Trooper runes is viable, regardless of player skill.Is "can play fractals 1-50 with a group of friends" viable? Well, any random assortment of rares and exotics will do here, as far as stats go, and actually knowing encounters becomes a factor.However, if we complicate things a bit, we soon arrive to the crux of the issue. "Can queue up to 100CM fractals with other randoms and complete them successfully" is a much higher bar, that leaves many, many builds in the dirt.
