Good write up.
Plus, even the worst WE only has to get to R12 to do some serious owning.
Once you hit R12, just head out to Marshes of Madness and pickup your Bonerender's Shank. Then you can run around "pwning", all the while thinking it is because of your newly developed "uber skills" - when in reality the career itself is just designed for any simpleton to be able to play, and has advantages like near 30dps blue quality weapons handed to it, at a rank where other careers are offered 20dps weapons of epic quality.
As a comparison:

No contest there, I can only speak for myself, but I personally found it extremely boring to play a career where everything was just handed to me - even at the lowest tiers of play.
It is not fun for the other player when my WE has access to gear that allows me to three shot any equal level player, or 5-6 shot a player one to three levels higher than myself, with very little effort. I shelved my WE for this very reason, and rolled a Squig Herder instead so that I could have some form of challenge instead of just a mindless win-fest.

Darkend you did look at the weapon speed right?
The 20 DPS ones are at 2.0 second speed the 27.8DPS WE one is at 3.6seconds it does make sense that they have more dps with such a high delay doesnt it?
