Arena Net makes a huge deal about how you're able to do just about anything in game the way you want to (especially questing), but it seems as I was playing the BWE and today's stress test I've noticed on multiple characters that some weapons are just far superior choices over others. Why is it that I get penalized with less damage if I want to use a bow on my Thief, or dual swords over a great sword on my Mesmer? I hope that by the end of the beta, all weapons are just about equal. I don't want to be "forced" to use a specific weapon just to help out my group mates on boss battles/dungeons or risk being deemed "less useful" if I choose to use something I have more fun with.
Anyone else feel the same way?
