We could also talk about some other profession-skills, not only the ones from thieves. Thieves are called OP so fast, because they can do a lot of their burst, without being seen before. That makes it easy to pull out for them and hard to counter.
But what about Killshot or Eviscerate from Warriors?
Yesterday I got an 11k Eviscerate from a Warrior. Besides of ranting about it, what do you mesmers do against these things?
I was wearing Berserker's Gear, so little to no defensive Stats
11k of 16k HP is a lot
In WvW it's relatively easy for a Warrior to gain Adrenaline Rank 3
So he was leaping at me, while I was standing between our guards, twohitting me and backed off unharmed.
It was not a 1vs1, I tried to keep 5 men away from our door. But I only got damage from the warrior. I was waving back and forth, playing with my safety and harming them.
Any ideas how I'd have come out of such big hits. Doesn't matter if it were a Thief, Warrior, Longbow-Ranger. Anything with big hits, while I'm backing off of them.
Maybe the thoughts and experiences from other mesmers can help me up with such situations
edit: Input from the big hit classes is appreciated as well
