Gave up on my ele because it's just way too hard to land the cone/short-range attacks on moving targets at high latency and D/D is really the only viable thing in sPvP. I've lost count of how many fire grabs I've "missed" despite blasting it off in their face, sick of it. I'm going to keep her PvE-only now.
Having a ton more success on my Eng with both bunker and burst builds because rifle kicks so much ass with instant CC like Net Shot and Overcharged Shot. Not to mention just the freaking AUTO ATTACK with rifle (crit build) seems to do higher consistent damage than I can pull off with D/D ele, and the range is so long that I can annoy the crap out of enemies by eating chunks of their health while they're just trying to travel across the map lol. The literal "BOOM" that happens when all toolbelt abilities fire off (plus discharge) + grenade barrage + massive Jump Shot crits > anything Ele seems to be able to put out.
It just makes no sense, I must be playing Ele horribly wrong or something despite watching so many long-ass videos. Ele really, really isn't about dealing damage as much as the other (vastly easier to play) classes seem to be able to do, attunement switching is just a whole lot of faffing-around with no pay-off. I get how the Evasive Arcana dodge-tanking is supposed to work in THEORY (and in videos) but I just can't fucking do it and get insta-killed the moment I get hit by Immobilize/knockdown.
