I'm having a little trouble while leveling. I can get through without worrying about dieing, but it takes me forever to kill more than 2 things. Sometimes I get 3-4 and get a little overwhelmed and almost die. I also don't kill things quite as fast as I see others kill things. That might just be the class, but since I haven't seen many people play mesmer I'm not sure.
I use a Gsword and Staff build, and I build mostly on condition damage and precision, which makes staff my main weapon. Now should I go more for power than precision or condition damage? I try and shatter when I know the mob is going to die, which I can time pretty easily now. Though that doesn't get me past more than one mob, I have to start all over on the next mob(I would have to regardless). I'm not that high of a level(mid 20's), but I still feel like I'm lacking majorly considering I have runes in every single item. 42-47% crit depending on the weapon, as well as a decent amount of condition damage.

Edit: Going to go to bed. I'll check back on this before I go to class tomorrow.
