@Matt While its true Scions were meant to be THE endgame classes, because the base classes have been powercrept by insane amounts they can compete with Scions and even in some circumstances be better than scions. I will agree Scions have a MUCH higher skill ceiling and can outperform any of the base classes assuming someone can even handle that. The skill ceiling for majority of people is way too high for that. Hell you have people on here complaining how solo PD/Phaleg/4man Deus was meant for the 0.1% of players when anyone with 2 braincells could clear them.
Just because the scion classes have the potential to be better doesnt mean they are with the majority of people. Thats why i even said i believe they should have just reworked the base classes to be more like scion classes. Maybe i mis-interpreted the post because i based mine solely on damage numbers. If were factoring in everything else scions get compared to base classes, then yes Scions way outclass and are way more fun than base classes. But my post was purely from a damage perspective since thats what most people tend to complain about which is just false.
