edit: forgot to mention stealth, using it will always distract them and make it hard to figure out which is you.

I only did one Arena match, but I scored 105 points, was top defender, and I never died.
I'm loving being a Mesmer.

I can usually manage to solo most people if i manage the invulns, dazes and kiting well enough
It took a while but thieves slowly became less and loss of a problem, mainly because of mantra of distraction. The instant 1s daze just completely *s up their heartseeker spam. The best honestly though is hundred blades/frenzy specced warriors, its hilarious to see them sitting there freaking out as there omni spike mysterously fails....
When it comes to dmg I specced into all dps with the traits except 'remove a condition on heal' and 'heal nearby allies on mantra'.
Its fantastic self healing, honestly the best ive seen short of a meditation guardian. The dmg is also solid, the phantasmal berserker has broken 4k on very rare occasions, usually hits for 2.5k~ though and 3~ bleed stacks. The actual attacks with the weapons don't hit that hard... with greatsword im usually averaging 300~ a tick with the spammable and 700~ with the sword throw.
The swords immobilize takes some getting used to but when you do it is so gravy... you just throw down your phantasms, pop that then the blurred frenzy and shatter a few clones if you really wanna frontload your numbers... such good deeps, lol.
That and stun locking... with mantra of distraction, the immobilize and pistol you can shut down a guy for 6~ seconds, more if you feel like shattering for dazes too... works phenominally if there is any decent dps around. Fair enough to say the specs been doing allot of work for me ;D
I found a builder and just punched all the stuff in there if you want a more organized look at it.
Oh and as a sidenote i was going to switch out the runes for the ones that give swiftness on heal, permanent swiftness seems like it could be a lil more usefull than the regen, i jsut never got around to it, lol.

Not dying is the easy part ;D
My first few specs just revolved around that to get the hange of the class then i kind of branched away from it to something a bit more well rounded.
