Soooo as we all know, GW2 3 day head start launches in around 22 hours. And I'm -pretty- sure that I'm going to roll a Mesmer, however...
I have terrible luck with rolling classes that end up being garbage, so to counter this I've been doing so research, via youtube videos and other forums. From what I've seen... The mesmer looks really elusive and all, kind of hard to catch, but the damage doesn't seem to be -that- good.
For example, I was watching a rather current video (released in the last month) and the mesmer is rotating on his target, freely dpsing and its going down pretty slowly, but as soon as the target switched on him, he dropped like a rock. And this seemed to be the case in most videos.
Now I didn't get the chance to play the beta so I really don't know, but I would like to ask anyone who has played a Mesmer or been killed by one on the Beta, how is there damage? Do they have any burst? Is there any notable dps problems? What weapon (and weapon switch) do you reccomend?
Please and thank you guys c:
