im loving how this is all of a sudden an issue.
and yes it is all of a sudden an issue. i've seen probably 4 threads in the last week pertaining to this "meta".
i brought this up about 3 months ago and i was told there is nothing wrong with the game.
i went about it in the "they eliminated trinity so that dumbed down the game to everything dps" and i was met with quite a bit of rejection from this very community.
so you dont want trinity, you dont want all dps action oriented combat
what is it that you all really want? i mean, the above posters are 100% correct in their assessment of the situation especially this:
so what do you people want? this is turning into a damned if you do, damned if you dont on ANet's part because of the increasingly demanding and whiny player base.
I think we DO want the holy trinity...but I think the change we need most at the time being are some well revised condition mechanics.

Because I doubt it's costing them any money, for now.
Trying to think of a way to fix it? I can't, it seems to be too embedded in the game now.
So far in PvE:
DPS is everything
Healing is useless
CC is mostly useless
condition damage is useless
pets/minions pretty useless
hardly any interupts/shutdowns so mesmers are for gimicks and rangers are ultra useless
Good luck with that anet......
Everything this man says is correct. (Except for rangers being useless. I don't agree.)
Conditions VS DPS("slash slash slash," etc.)
DPS currently destroys condition damage. Thus why everyone goes full berserker. We have no use for conditions, EXCEPT poison.
I don't think ArenaNet gives a damn about that. But CONDITIONS is what they need to address directly, in order to have some interesting builds coming out instead of, "GLF3M WARRIOR FULL ZERKER ONLY!!!" as well as full zerker being the ONLY viable gear build in PvE... i'd say, PvP as well.
My two mains, ranger and mesmer, I both had at full condition damage for at least 4 months, carrion sets. I just recently made the change to ALL zerker sets last month and saw how much more damage I was dealing on a constant basis. Condition damage is far from viable. Thus players ONLY have one choice at the moment: "The Zerker Build." This is a strict "holy build" that everyone must follow and it's not creativity or fun at all.
