I think you're being a little melodramatic here, Brag. PBAE is not going away anytime soon. I've done hundreds of AAs on several toons via PBAE. I've done hundreds of AAs on several toons via charming. I did my PBAE AAs in a suboptimal place (ME after the kite limit nerf). My PBAE exp rate was around 1 AA per hour. That's very similar to charming in Ssra and much slower than PBAE in FG or the Deep, as you know. I loved my suboptimal PBAE anyway, though. I could do a ten-minute PBAE pull then AFK for twenty minutes until respawns. That's a much more relaxing playstyle than constantly watching for a charm break. I consider myself pretty good at charming, but I can't really keep it together in an intense charm session for more than an hour at a stretch. Let's think for a sec about what that AA per hour number means. It's an efficiency ratio: AAs earned divided by time invested. When I charm, every hour of exp gain is an hour invested. An hour I spend glued to the keyboard. When I PBAE, though, I'm at the keys for maybe 20 minutes per hour. The other 40 minutes I can work or do chores or troll the forums or w/e. So for me, a PBAE exp rate of 1 AA per hour elapsed on the clock is more like 3 AAs per hour at the keys. That's insane. It would still be insane even if PBAE exp was cut in half, which it won't be. We're talking about a 10% nerf here. Letting spells hit an infinite number of targets is just a silly mechanic. Casting Jyll's Wave of Heat on 50 mobs does 16,000 DPS. That's the equivalent of a full raid of 72 endgame rogues furiously stab-stab-stabbing away. PBAE is silly overpowered now and will still be silly overpowered when these exp changes are done.
