Trying to get a grasp on the Mesmer

What do you guys think about this build?

It's focused on stealth and shattering illusions. While illusions are up I do more damage and take less damage.

People say that the Mesmer is squishy, I was trying to compensate a little for that here by making it easy to escape with stealth and raising my toughness.

My gear in PvP Consists of +vitality +toughness with the regeneration 6th gear ability. I put a Sigil on my main hands that increases my damage by 5% and a sigil on my off-hands that makes it so I chill nearby foes for 3 seconds when I switch weapons.

Basically everything I do causes confusion and the bottom tree raises the damage for that.


I haven't had a chance to test this yet and won't for a bit. I was curious what people thought of it though.

you really shouldnt need to worry about being hit, if you have good APM you should avoid 90% of incoming damage. but good idea try it out

If they can blame guns for killing people, I can blame my keyboard for mispelled words.

How is APM important in this game? Yes, you can dodge, but other than that, this is about knowing your rotation, not having twitch skills.

Have you played mesmer? there all about keeping your illusions up as much as possible detonating at the correct time. and for the twitch reflexes you need to watch your opponent for what ability is being cast to either dodge or to use a teleport or stealth ability to break CC or disjoint the ability.

^ strictly pvp though.
