so many desperate defensive ele's who try to twist the facts.
1) Every team in that stream runes an ele, so no there is no bias, infact every top team in NA also runs an ele too since java from PZ switched from warrior to learn ele. Xeph's team (Paradigm) arguably the best team in the world right now runs a DPS ele as do many other top teams, so trying to argue that only bunker ele's are strong is just garbage.
2) The reason they were saying ele has the ONLY uncountarable down state is because not only do they have stomp protection but they have Absolute DPS protection, Mist form negates ALL aoe and ALL condition damage which is just rediculous, OH and it HEALS half your hp??!?. The current meta since the hp change to corpses means that its better to just dps the corpse rather than stomp which is why every downstate is pathetically weak atm compared to ele's.
3) When e-stars ran 4 ele's and owned it up it WASN'T free tournaments it was PAID tournaments.
1)thats not a sign of being op or then you should also nerf guardians cause i rarely if ever have seen a team without them as well as necros lately(i would prefer they get nerfed to be honest
2)true but its payback time for the months we spend with a nonexistant downed state
3)id like to see those games.Do you know if i can find them to see what builds they used for each ele?
I know dps is viable but Phantaram is not running actually near glass cannon either.He runs valkyries (air,water,arcane traits)with low crit chance and his bulk of damage comes mostly from small moments of big hiting spells like phoenix,dt that crit during the fury duration from attunement swap..Its not that he can get anywhere near thiefs number anyway and he also tends to, quite often ,miss most of the hard hitters as well .
..but hey,at least its aoe..
