Could you elaborate a bit on this? It's the first time I hear someone say S/P is better than D/D (at least first time since the nerfs to pistol whip...). I haven't played fractals yet so any info on why S/P is superior is much appreciated.

The simple reason is, that the higher you get the more important the trashpulls are. Fractals on high difficulty are pretty much only about thrash & trash events where Black Powder is just the best skill a thief has (you can substitute with S/D & blind on stealth but it's not as good as S/P). Let me paraphrase (only to get slaughtered by Tolkien Fans):
"A hundred Blades to rule them all, Black Powder to blind them, Into the Void to bring them all and a Ring of Warding to bind them."
For 2 Warrior, Guardian, Mesmer, Thief at least :P.

That's not to say the bosses can't kill you, they can... but the trash takes time, and even the (probably) hardest boss in fractals, the ascendend grawl shaman is all about trash.

People tend to think that mesmer only works if they are Exotics?

I wear greens because its my playstyle, and have seen no evidence as to why exotics are better.  I give my party lots of boons and support, using a staff  build, and it's really fun.  I hate this exotic gear meta

Then you are straight up ignorant as AN have even laid out for you that exotics are statistically superior to green. It doesn't take some spreadsheet fan to prove this, ANet have already done it for you.

I believe he was being sarcastic
