I know that the most used weapon is greatsword but what build is the most popular build, anyone can post the most usefull build for spvp that is proven to be good, such as the warror hundred blades build and the guardian bunker build.

If you can go and make the build and just give me the link that would be great if not well just tell me how many point in wich trait tree.

Can't tell if joking or serious...

If you're looking for a copy pasta build go try thief or some similiar class where 90% of your damage comes from one skill. Mesmers have too many viable options and if you can't think for yourself I don't see how handing you a build and saying 'put points here' will help...

From what I've seen shatter builds are the most popular in tpvp. I dunno about spvp.

I agree with Pysgasm. This guy is basically asking us to do the research of the class for him and give him a template and info. Let him do the damn research himself. Hell there's a guide on this kind of thing that's STICKED at the top of the forum.

Said it before and I'll say it again, mesmer is a reactionary class. Even the shatter builds to an extent. You can't give someone a template for how to play and expect them to be successful. We have a lot of relevant traits and weapons that allow us to tailor our builds to individual play styles and still be successful. More so than any other class in this game. Experience is the only thing that will make you better at this class. That's why this mesmer forum isn't overwhelmed with 'omg play this leet build and dominate' threads.

well i did played both shatter and phamtasm build and it depend on your playstyle

if u like to boom burst massive number 1 shot 1 target then go for glass canon shatter

if u like to let your clone to kill while u kite around then phamtasm it is

there is also the "shamtasm" build , mix of shatter and phamtasm , personally i choose this for tpvp coz it provide good burst and good team support ( u have to be quite skilled with the mesmer to use this build)

u can easily google/youtube or search the forum here to get these build

well i told u my opinion its up to u to decide, i seen all diff build and playstyle and its u who decide it, there isnt a 1 build to rule them all thing >.> it depend on u and only u !

Yup after testing for few hrs using the shater build the difference between dmg from greatsword(trait for more power and recharge rate) and the staff was 1-2 sec, so i decided to go with staff since it adds tons of utility and also conditions.

Also i couldnt find this "shamtasm" build.

So between the shatter or phatasam build i assume shatter works better since most people use that?

Phantasm build used to be very stronk, I haven't played it a while, so dunno if they nerfed it.

Basically you'll have warlocks doing 6k damage crits. Just try to figure how you maximize phantasm damage yourself.

And the weapons and runes that are used for that build?

Look up Taugrim's blog and look at his "Legion" guide.

Shatter builds are the most common, there are still couple phantasm builds out there, but not as succesfull as the shatter build. Some strong defensive phantasm builds with perma regen/prot. Condition builds are fun to mess around with.

Shatter builds are usually tweaked to personal pref.

is common. Timewarp can be changed out for mass invis for stomp/res or moa if you are an offensive/defensive capper. Portal is pretty much a must. you can swap out decoy for nullfield if you have troubles with condi classes.

Lol. Not really. I created a Mesmer for the hell of it and completely owned 2 free tournaments. In fact I was having so much fun 2v1ing and 3v1ing, I was completely disgusted at the ease of play style of the Mesmer.

1v1 its almost impossible to kill a Mesmer. Melees have it worse. Thieves still give me problems due to the stealth factor, but those are tournament thieves.

I simply don't get how a pure Melee Warrior/Guardian can best a Mesmer. The 2 on the staff itself is ridiculous.

This, most play shatter, however as previously mentioned, almost every single mes will give their own twist to it.

My advice google "gw2 mesmer shatter build" take the foundation of that and build upon it till it fits you.

I'm not one for going with cookie cutter builds. At the moment I run a shatter GS & Sword/Torch build to take advantage of combo fields for the double blast. Mesmer is the type of profession that really benefits being flexible & mixing up your build & utilities from fight to fight.
