    Seems to be a ton of posts on the official forum and reddit(theres like 3 posts on the gw2 front page) moaning about d/d eles and tbh ive been seeing alot around lately.

    So any ideas on new viable builds just instead?

    The main issue here is that ele has no other options. (in spvp)

    If you go offensive you gonna get raped by thiefs and wars easily which is the reason why eles are so defensive in the first place. Also all high dps ele skills are easy to dodge so it's quite difficult to actually burst someone down.

    Whats left for a change are other weapons for a defensive spec:
    • Staff: Was a nice weapon before evasive arcana got nerved. Now you have a bunch of fields and not much you can actually do with them. Also it is slow and the playstyle is more or less hoping that people stay in your fire fields.
    • Scepter (compared to main hand dagger): Less control, a bit more tanky (better heal, 2 blinds), worse dps since it's a total mix of direct damage and condition damage. Overall it's nice for might stacking but might is capped at 25 stacks ...
    • Focus: Not an option for me since you lose 90% of your mobility...

    No, Just no, they wont nerf the only viable build for an ele for some crybabies.
