    Hrm, a trait to use mantras twice before having to recharge?

    I might actually use mantras then.

    According to the the video the Yogscast released they said the ball thingy("2" skill) didn't get removed, but instead got rolled into the "1" ability.

    So I thinks its a pure win for you staff Mesmers.

    They sorta merged it with the first skill. I like it.

    How do you know what damage Mantra of Pain does? And if it truly is pathetic, surely they will buff it.

    And can you attack someone and charge mantra at the same time?

    Charging a mantra takes about 8 seconds, its however instant cast after that though.

    There was one video of someone using it (the only person who used it) and its damage was the same as spam attack 1

    Yeah but, what I mean is can I use my other abilities and when want click on a mantra and it starts charging while I attack.

    Or do I need to be still while it charges?

    I think you can move while charging, but you can't attack while charging it. (kinda defeats the purpose if it did).

    That would actually be a pretty cool mechanic if you only had a certain amount of time to use it after charging. Not being able to use it during actual combat kind of kills it's use in long fights

    Imagine having 3 clones and summoning the Warband. Charr is def. the way to go.

    The point of it, is its suppose to have a long cast but have a big effect. 8 second isn't too long also. However some of the mantras seem underwhelming.

    Zito are you sure charge will be eight seconds? Wiki says three.

    It just sounds too long to try and charge it mid fight.

    I like the new flurry ability sword mesmers got. Makes dual wield swords much more viable for pvp. Perhaps my dreams of being a battle mage mesmer will come to fruition.

    From the mantra of pain video, it took around 8 seconds it looked like. It could have changed. Since the mantras were so weak they could of either changed the charge time or buff them significantly.

    Their original purpose though was for you to use it pre-fight and have it omgwtfbbq powerful.

    I still say elementalist is closer to a battle mage if anything in this game. Double dagger +3 summon elemental weapons meant for melee.

    blegh, elementalists just seem like a bore no matter what weapon they use. A sword mesmer may not have the mechanics and abilities of a battle mages, but at least feels like a battle mage, WHICH IS ALL THAT MATTERS TO ME! But I too am interested how mantras will play out, they seem interesting, but might be a pain the ass.

    ---------- Post added 2012-03-26 at 10:51 PM ----------

    Seems like I'll probably get decoy, distortion, and mantra of pain depending on how good it is. I'll get ether feast for healing, and moa bird for pvp since it doesn't seem to break on damage making it amazing if you're getting up close and personal, and time warp for pve.

    ---------- Post added 2012-03-26 at 10:54 PM ----------

    By the way, are there any new good mesmer videos?

    Well two of them are technically ranged. The bow is a bow, and the Lava Axe is a thrown weapon.

    I'm not sure what the greatsword elite skill is yet. The main attack is named "Flame Wave" so I'm not sure what to think.

    You do have a point though, elementalists will make for great "battle mages" through double dagger.

    Roggles, Distortion is now part of the shatter mechanic. I'm taking Decoy and Mantra of Pain too but Mirror for healing. Portal seems interesting, but have to wait and see how good it will actually be.

    I saw a video a while back and I think the great sword is ranged. I remember the animation being a slash through the air and it shooting some sort of fireball.
