If you can list all 8 Classes in a list of most OP to least OP, how would that list look like?
This is what my list looks like....

This heavily depends on context.

In a situation where the enemy is across a 1400 range gap, it looks like this.
1. Ranger
2-8. Everything else.

In a situation where the enemy stands still against a wall, it looks like this.
1. Elementalist
2. Warrior
3-8. Everything else.

If we're talking about staying alive alone versus 25 enemies in WvW, it looks like this.
1. Thief
2-8. Everything else.

All classes are "OP" at something.

Don't forget to add:

In the situation where you are surrounded by PVE enemies, staying alive forever while taking tones of damage/conditions, and slowly killing everything:
1. AH guardian
2 - 8 Everthing else

In the situation where you are good at jumping puzzles and want to make money helping others:
1. Mesmer
2 - 8 everything else

If you're talking running node farming in cursed shore, it looks like this:
1. Shout warrior with Warhorn
2 - 8. Everything else

One time a GW2 dev struck a guildie dead by a bolt of lightning for afk'ing under the map in HotW (back when this was still possible), he was literally just standing on a block of ice and was suddenly struck dead

so yeah GW2 devs OP nerf pls

My main class is Guardian

I'd definitely say Guardian is more OP overall than Warrior is.
Warrior is only great against massive-HP sponges & targets that are too dumb to move around a lot.

I'll admit, it's really nice to finally have a main class that's OP *from inception.*
In Gw1 my first main was Necro which didn't "get OP" until much later in the game's life.
Then halfway through I switched to Dervish/Mesmer which was super weak and didn't get OP until like 2011...
For my Guild I mained Monk which wasn't really "OP" as much as it was just plain REQUIRED by DESIGN :zzz:

I have to put like 3x as much effort into my Ranger right now to get the same performance of my Guardian.

Having played all professions to 80 (though I wouldn't consider myself an absolute expert in all of them), in PvE, I would say the Ranger profession. There's virtually no PvE situation it can't handle with relative ease except for certain fights where twin bear pets can be overwhelmed by champ damage output. But that's about it. Great healing, bears with regen are tanking beasts, run speed signet, endurance regen trait, decent AE and good range damage.

I would definitly not put ranger has the least op profession out there. Merely the most under-rated one. Enormous amounts of damage and pet tanks along with lots of utilities makes it a really good profession
