I <3 the Mesmer. It makes me work but I enjoy the “chess” type appeal to the profession.
I’ve recently settled on a Staff and Sword/Focus combination and I’ve paid for too many trait resets already I’m hoping I can reach out to some of you builders who’ve poured over and tested trait sets for some advice and guidance.
I’d like to create a trait set that can be both useful in WvW and in my PvE roaming (if possible). I love the focus for Temporal Curtain and the whirling Warden, and sword lets me get a good couple seconds of immobilize so I can trap mobs and players next to my Warden.
Staff has the delicious Chaos Storm which I miss dearly every time I try out a Great Sword just for kicks. GS is fun, but I miss my defensive abilities on the staff.
This is a rough set of traits based on being able to access glamour buffs, illusion buffs and staff buffs – with some illusion-on-death buffs.
I realize I’m heading down the jack-of-all-trades/master-of-none route, but something like this might give me the flexibility to switch between PvE and WvW and maybe even dungeons by giving me access to those interchangeable traits. The utilities skills shown would be more for PvE, but I’d swap in Feedback and Time Warp for more group situations.
Apologies on the longish read and thank you in advance for any and all help and advice on either what I’ve started or something completely different
