Didn't see the need for 100 different threads of current/future Mesmer pvp videos so I did a search and snagged what I saw. I also went through some youtube videos and grabbed some (a lot of random ones) and threw them in the mix. I didn't grab everyone I saw because honestly if you want to watch hundreds of videos all of which 8 minutes long, feel free to search youtube for them. I just did this so people could get an idea of what was out there.

I put Lewis B's into the mix at the bottom so that people can go back and compare skills he had during his beta to those that we had--just for some added flavor.

Note: The List should be completely rebuilt at this point with videos starting at appropriate times to showcase the specified video for the corresponding section. If you have any other requests (changes to the list, sections added, etc.) please feel free to either post here or send me a PM and I'll see what I can do.



The List:

Scepter
Spoiler

Staff
Spoiler

Sword
Spoiler

Greatsword
Spoiler

1v1 Videos

Disclaimer: I do not own nor did I create any of these videos or the rights to them unless otherwise specified. These videos are uploaded by other players either on Guildwars2guru.com or Youtube. If there are other videos you'd like added (your own or some you really enjoyed) please post them here instead of creating a new thread and I'll update the post on a daily/bi-daily basis. If you post someone else's video please give them credit for it so that I can do the same.

Well I sure screwed up that merge I just tried to do.  Still getting used to IPB controls unfortunately, sorry about that.  Here's the post I tried to merge:

Hey Everyone,

  Just dropping by to show off some of GW2's mesmer pvp from the past BWE. In the video i "Finally!" display some good shatter mechanics and i display the Greatsword, Staff, and Sword/Pistol(Part 2). Also displayed are some of the pro's and con's of the Mesmer's escape routes and CC(crowd control). Feel free to post questions, follow, or comments! I hope that all of you enjoy. Watch the first and second video together to notice player development and curve. (been playing mmos for around 10 years)

Video:
  (Part 1)
(Part 2)

Do you need help or just want to chat about moderation?  Drop me a PM.

Added to the list.. Thanks Chalky and no worries :)


-----------------------------



Went through the videos and added what each was using so you could pick and choose if need be. If we get enough videos I'll start dividing them among the main hand weapons used at the START of the video and list what the video contains later on. But I'll need more videos to have enough incentive to do that.

One thing I'm noticing in a lot of these is that even though we have secondary weapons, people rely really heavily on the GS and rarely ever swap weapons if at all. It's good to note that this is severely limiting your skill usage and puts yourself at a disadvantage in pvp; not just for us Mesmer but any profession.

Hello! I have roughly 2 hours worth of pvp footage that I will release clips of at http://www.youtube.c...jackazzm/videos as I render them.

They are all taken on the last night of the beta weekend. Featuring only Sword/pistol and staff gameplay - only structured pvp.

They would have been higher quality, but My HDD couldn't keep up unfortunately.

You can also combo with illusions (sword illusions invoke pull if there is a light field (temporal something runspeed field))

These videos aren't doing anything for me but make me miss the game even more. Lol. I keep thinking "Ugh...sick of the Spatial Surge spam" or "I think I did better than him..." or "Please use your other weapon set!". Upset that I didn't record any footage.

I know what you mean lol I really wish there weren't so many GS videos but it kinda motivates me to make my own next BWE--kinda want to see how the CPU handles it anyway since the game isn't optimized yet. Did fine on max settings this time around without FRAPS so I'm crossing my fingers.

You can also combo with yourself with staff and sword MH skills. The Leap on sword and clone skill on Staff both count as leaps and create Chaos Armor which can be generated from Chaos Storm and Null Field.

Guild went to Crystal Desert but I ended up somewhere else because it was full.. I completely forgot what server I went too, I just picked one at random.  I honestly have no idea where we'll be next round but that sounds like a plan! We'll probably be doing a lot of WvW though so I'm not sure if I'll get to SPvP much or not, but I'm hopeful!

I found a video on Youtube by mijahuDKV who gives a comparison between Mesmer and Thief pvp which I thought was a little interesting. I put it somewhat towards the top for easy locating and although he does use a GS in his build he shows how effective weapon swapping can be so I didn't really want to put it down with the other GS videos.

If you can't already tell, I do tend to put GS videos together towards the bottom of the list and before anyone has their feathers ruffled this is for a reason. Mostly they aren't in any specific order, however, since we've all seen thousands of GS pvp/gameplay videos I'm trying to put those videos that show off other weapon sets towards the top to make them easier to find. It's nothing personal and I don't want to step on anyone's toes. I just want to give the community a bit of variety and not make them shuffle through anymore of the same weapon sets just to find what they are really searching for.

As I mentioned before, with the rate that we're getting videos I'll have to start categorizing them soon anyway. Please do not take offense if your video is further down the list of someone else's. If you are offended, feel free to send me a nasty little PM telling me just what you think so that we don't clutter the thread with anything other than video links/comments on the videos.

Oh hey, I meant to post a link to my vids but someone found one of them already.

anywho a couple more vids to add to the mijahuDKV section:
+ GS) general commentary on the playstyle.
+ GS) full Khylo match lots of Treb, lots of sword/torch.

I kept meaning to try out some other playstyles with my Mesmer this beta but I was just having so much fun doing the hack and slash thing in melee I never did! I'll be trying out some condition and shatter builds during the next beta for sure. I still have a little more footage to sift through if I make another video I'll post it when I get it uploaded.

Uploaded my fourth and final PvP video from the weekend beta and I'm officially out of video worthy footage. I'm already looking forward to the next event as I have some great new builds planned to test out! Hopefully anyone that watched my vids from this last beta event wasn't too bored I tried to cut out a lot of the downtime and stupidly one-sided fights.

So many videos out there yet you are the only one that found out that in order to make a DPS build you had to change your necklace. Gj ;)
