Either the rulesets between pve and wvw need to be split, which can obviously be done since it has been done for a number of skills and for pvp.
Trying to balance pve and wvw to where they are both fair i dont think that is possible.
how about lower condition base damage by a bunch but have them able to crit this wouldnt affect pve too much since they already run viper/grieving and all those hybrid type stats.
For WVW this would mean condi builds would have to factor crit chance and crit damage into their builds if they want to do decent damage.
Dire, Trailblazer and probably Celestial stat combos should never have been added to the game they give a condition build everything they need toughness and vitality the survival stats and only need the condition damage stat for damage and maybe condition duration whatever
If you want to do effective power damage you need three stats power precision and ferocity but then you also need toughness and vitality you have to balance your stats for survival and damage if you did the above where condis can crit a condition build would then have to do the same

This game is different in mechanics, is gigantic in scope, is beautiful and intriguing. Do yourself a favour and don't miss it. It's not "marketing" or advertisement. It's how the game is, as a matter of fact.
(Final note: I read some of the few "0" rated reviews here and I am appalled by the false information they spread. One thing is expressing opinions, one thing is spreading clear lies. Only 5 skills? False. I cannot play with my friends? False. Give the game a try, you'll see by yourself what's true and what's false...…Expand
