I'm curious, not because I don't feel like it or am incapable. I've just been trying a mesmer greatsword - sword/focus setup and it becomes VERY awkward. Mainly because greatsword you want to be as far as you can, and sword you got to be right in its face. So I keep running in and out in the fight if it's not on me. And I tried scepter in mainhand but that felt weak with a crit power build since it's strongest attack is a condition.
Is it ok to just do your basic 1 attack and still be doing decent damage? Or do I really want to be running in and out all day with this setup? Or is this just a terrible setup? If thats the case it doesn't seem like much of anything works well with greatsword and almost like have to run condition for mesmer.
I mainly had the idea that I'd stay at range unless something comes after me and then switch to sword. But in dungeons it doesn't always work that way, in fact it usually doesn't. Many times the mob will just be hitting someone else and you can sit ranged all day. So is it ok to just spam 1 while everything else is on CD?
