    Idk about lvl 80 but my 40 elementalist air - scepter + dagger puts out so much single target dps its sickening...

    Really depends on if you're talking single target vs AoE as well as what sort of builds we're talking. A lot of it is situational. If youre talking just sitting there hitting a target that does nothing, like a practice dummy, then yeah you might be right, but some builds in some of thos elower ranked classes can put out massive DPS against large groups and depending on enemy actions (like condition spreading & boon to condition converting necros).

    what build are you using? i haven't found a decent one around 40 using air.. seem to do a ton more damage with a fire based build or even earth/fire with condition damage.

    Also OP you talking single target or AOE because some classes hit much harder with AOE and some much harder single target

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    For most classes single target and multi target depends on the build.

    Single Target would be Thief, Ranger, Warrior.

    Would need to be broken in to Melee and Ranged.

    5 Mesmer --

    6 Necromancer 

    7 Elementalist 

    8 Engineer

     

    So whats your idea?

    Off personal builds, I'd rate like this...

    1 Thief -- insane dps in 3 seconds, like death... Multiple builds for this too. PW and HS are 2 diff builds.

    2 Warrior -- My Rifle crit build burst dps crits for 12k, Volley for 7k

    3 Mesmer -- Guildie critted a gaurdian for 25k dps (in WvW) -- Mesmers can do dps.

    4 Elementalist -- Can do some great single target dps as well as AoE, Crit builds with Might stacking = 1500+ dps per shot

    5 -- Ranger -- Haven't played, but seen some good dps rangers

    6 -- Gaurdian -- Prolly in a tie with Ranger, GS for dps, Hammer for control

    7 -- Necro -- This is my main class, lacks pure dps unless intensely glass cannon for DS, even lacks in the condition department comparing to other classes

    8 -- Engineer, this one is hard to rate, I've built some high crit dps rifle builds and flame builds, but it's so much more work to get them there.

    My engineer has 5k dps and its mostly aoe, I don't think anyone even close to that (it's not 5 sec burst, lol, I mean real dps).

    Are you stupid? Do you think i'm gonna waste my life for real life?image
