Yeah, the idea that our aoe is too high is laughable. When other elementalists target the area around me with their meteor shower in WvW, I sometimes just stand there and keep fighting back, particularly if I have an enemy downed (with the help of people who can actually do some damage, of course). It isn't even powerful enough to take out my squishy elementalist butt, let alone be of much concern to a warrior or guardian. Meanwhile, a thief can charge through my aoe and rip me to shreds in 3 seconds spamming Heartseeker, but they apparently need a buff. I'd love for a developer to go into WvW and see how long it takes to kill a warrior who is standing still and not fighting back with a staff elementalist.
Aoe'ing people trying to rez downed players. What an exploit that is.
This game is looking more like WoW every day with the ridiculous class imbalance always getting worse. Everyone will be playing thief and mesmer in WvW soon enough.
