Oh I'm well aware of the resurgence of defis, it's mainly due to clamor nerf that they've become "semi-popular" again (at least in terms of the population I guess).
Like I said, and I agree with you 1) people build squishy to maximize DPS, this results in a disparity in pvp where you can hit 2k-2.7k on cap given the correct circumstances, but you die in 5-8 seconds, unless you happen to be a very buffed mystic on both totems (I literally count the seconds per target so...) 2) some classes like Druids or commies have a slightly better overall stats spread when invested in +30, because of the skills strength and item mall involved.
Personally, I've never known people that were actually serious about pvp that didn't try to find the balance between DPS/survivability in any other game.
I've played defi, did well with defi, I know Terms of Service can be strong if it's gotten off. But I also know that people can just walk out of it too if you placed it a certain angle and they happen to be at the edge of it. Or they can just charge out. But, at least with clamor not being completely useless, you'll have a way to keep casters in check for a bit, now you can't really unless a commie wants to ruin their day lol.
