    And underground! Several times I was getting ported under the ground without a chance to come up, most of the times it happened when close to some place with water. I got to a point of being afraid to actually use the skill :P So, yay for the fix!

    Not sure how "fixed" Phase Retreat is, but Illusionary Leap-> Swap parked me into the stairs under Dwayna's Shrine this afternoon.

    Calling out to leave the mob alive so I can use it to teleport back out, instead watching "LOLOLOL" across my screen as the closest waypoint is halfway across the fucking map, yeah. Real warm feels about that one.

    The new phase retreat is annoying. It teleports you from the target now instead of just a certain amount no matter what.

    I have used it and teleported to the left of my target, backwards. Meaning I was facing my target it teleported by back and left and turned me and my camera around.

    I'm like... wut

    Regarding there being no sets that increase confusion duration (like they do Bleed/Burn/Poison/Cripple, etc):

    PvP set doesn't actually make it better for PvE, but what do you think? It might make it actually capable of building around (if perhaps Scepter gets it put into 1-chain like it's supposed to be?)

    A confusion set would be awesome! I asked myself the question why there is none for confusion several times I actually enjoyed doing sPvP in a tanky scepter/pistol build centered around confusion/bleeds and I resorted to Undead set since I think that's the one that maximizes condition damage in general.

    And yeah, make it available for PvE as well.

    I do staff with scepter/torch (so much confusion due to shatters lol) and I run with nightmare, which gives me like 20% condition duration (10pts in Dom) and then I took the increased confusion duration trait so it's on them a TON, and I still have like 1500-1700 com damage...

    Initially was going with nightmare as well, but ended up going with undead for more con damage (since I run with 20 Chaos and rabid stuff). Does the fear proc often?

    I have to say, after these changes my Mesmer feels...slow. Personally I'd rather see reduced damage on skills with shorter cooldowns than higher damage and longer cooldowns. I like having buttons available to push and it really feels like I'm spending more time AAing, and that's not very engaging. Maybe it's my build, but I have to say I LOVE cloning/phantoms and it really feels like one of the more unique aspects of the game.

    I'm sticking with greatsword / scepter+pistol damage dealer right now but I'm curious about staff / scepter + focus support for dungeons. Can anybody say something about it?

    You could pick up the trait which applys confusion on clone death. Since scepter spawns in melee... its perfect.

    Which Phantasm would you pair it with though? And would you run 2 phantasms and just auto spawn clones in melee? How else would you trait?

    Was being sarcastic :3

    However the best thing would be Iduelist x2 then spam the clone as the duelists will be at range they are less likely to die. Torch is an alternative if you are dealing with reflect mobs, so they won't kill themselves.

    lol despite your sarcasm it works REALLY well xD, i use scepter torch a lot and pretty much make people cry whenever a clone dies... cripple, random con, confusion, giving me might if i shattered it... oh it's bloody glorious!! and so many delicious tears... You should try it sometime xD

    I won't really support scepter in the state it is in now.

    It's like a guy experimenting in college claiming he is straight. (lol). Most of the time in PvP I can't even get a full death beam off. And it's not bad timing its just everyone has something that can stop a 5 second channel and attack 1 is still slow as hell (don't know why they did missle speed and not casting speed it made almost no difference) it takes way to much time to get out a chain attack 3. Rather stack crit and vigor trait.

    I just recently made a mesmer and to me it seems a bit weird class. I'm wondering what traits should I go for? Probably mostly for leveling purposes since I doubt I give up my engineer main, but I just want to level all classes to max lvl at some point.

    I picked up greatsword, but before that I used scepter+pistol. I use shatters since, I feel the illusions are most useful that way. I'm not entirely sure what things I could get, but atm I'm thinking of putting points to increasing condition damage, power and precision in that order. The explosions seem to be power based, though, so I'm not sure, if I should put power first and then condition or even go for power, precision, condition.

    I'm not too far yet so there is not much harm, if I have done wrong choices, but I'd like to at least play thinking I'm going the right way.

    Well, you kinda do have crit and vigor traits with the build I was talking about... And actually I've noticed that I connect more with the scepter now that it's sped up instead of BARELY hitting people because a light breeze would throw the fucking bolt off course...

    That being said... The death ray may not hit fully like ever, but when it does ohohoho do they cry!

    What are the top builds in your opinion for:

    1) PvE
    2) sPvP
    3) WvW

    Help me out please it seems that every time I ask people who know don't answer:

    Could some one tell me what the 2.2 Toughness 22k HP build looks like?

    Also what does a Phantasm GS Pric/Powr build looks like?

    Both questions are from a PvP perspective.

    Thanks

  20. #2200
    Quick question that just came to mind: if I trait for glamours inflicting blindness, does a feedback bubble make a foe miss itself (and thus also not applying confusion)?

    Thanks in advance
    I'll tell you in another life, when we are both cats.
