I'm really disappointed in this PTS Cycle, myself and several other people have worked really hard to stay relevant during this cycle and week after week there has been nothing regarding Warden. You slap us in the face with "Master's of Ice" while nerfing Arctic Blast out of PvP. I feel like every bit of feedback was touched on this patch except for Warden (And probably mNB, sorry sneaky dudes) and it's really disheartening.
I thought that maybe if we could get enough feedback, and I'll admit I went off the rails with some memes and concept stuff, but the real feedback, it feels tossed aside. I even spent time trying to justify why Frost Warden should be more present via the Lore of Wardens and Y'ffre and Frost Elves, but whatever. We've even got a new Frost Damage Trial set that isn't terrible, Nunatak, a new monster set that is kinda meh but has potential, the Brittle Status which is a nice status change for Warden on the Frost side.
This is the patch where Magden will probably be the worse spec in PvP and in PvE you might as well respec to Stamden because that is where the development time is going.
I hope I'm wrong and Zos switches it around, but yeah this sucks.
