What would you say is the best AOE class?

I can tell you it's not Mesmer (my main).

I've heard necro has amazing AOE control, and I imagine elementalist does as well.

Proper Burn built GS/Sword + Torch Guardians can rip through quite a handful of things unmitigated.

I'd have to say I've never had a problem with mobs as a GS Guardian. Mix it with some Hammer for spikes & control, Staff for teamwork & ranged AOE, or Sword + Torch for quick up-close kills.

Otherwise, Shortbow Thief and Elementalist do very well in that arena.

I vote greatsword/staff Guardian and shortbow Thief.
Captain Falcon used his Aerial Forward + A move while wearing a bee costume. It was the bee's knees.

I'm only level 12 with my necro but its pretty ridiculous.

Put down well of suffering, hit everyone with Enfeebling Blood (dagger offhand), switch to Death Shroud and Life Transfer. Everything is usually either dead or down to 1 or 2 hits.

Hmm for some reason a guardian just doesnt appeal to me but I think I'm going to have to try one out based off the responses here.

I'm also interested in a kiting AOE elementalist but I have a feeling I would be very squishy.

Greatsword/ scepter and torch guardians can take on huge groups at a time.
There were no screams. There was no time. The mountain called Monkey had spoken. There was only fire. And then, nothing.
