I have setup my Mesmer burst to slide my finger over the keyboard, so I could pull off the burst easy and instantly.
In the burst I used Daze with no clones do I disable the enemy for 1 second, followed by Decoy MI and Mind Wrack.
I was able to pull off the combo fast.
This band aid for macro users and people using exploit (which I have no idea how to do and I am not interested) is more of a hindrance to people who are able to press buttons fast. Try slide your finger over 6 buttons near each other and see how fast you can do it.
With this nerf, I am no longer able to use my burst and fast keystrokes. This band-aid fix to remove macro users and exploiters actually promotes the use of macros.
Macros could be set up to have .25 second delay, so you never ever miss a burst, without a macro you can miss a burst due to having too much reflexes.
Why is Arenanet promoting using a Macro to play mesmer? All i have to do is slide my finger on \zxcvb to do a full shatter burst (Cry, Diversion, Decoy, Mirror and Mind Wrack). Having a keyboard with low profile keys you can pull off this instantly.
Now I am unable to play since I took less then .25 seconds between Cry of Frustation and Diversion, while Macro players are able to still use exploit and put in .25 second delay between shatters, thus they never ever miss a burst.
