What runes/amulet are you using? I can't seem to find it.. I'm on my phone so that may be why.

Dwayna Runes (for near constant uptime of regen thus protection) and all my jewelry is chryso.

Sorry chryso? clerics? carrion? I noticed the carrion jewel but no amulet.

I'm also skeptical about any mesmer build without Deceptive Evasion but I'll give it a shot.

This is a WvW Build, I have not tested it in sPvp. I'm a WvW'er.

Deceptive Evasion is only necessary when you have a problem with clone generation. This build has no problem with clone generation especially with Staff 2. Decoy/Mirror Images for On demand burst, and Staff #2 on super low cool down.

And what Armor/Weapons do you use?

Carrion/Rampager or Power/Tough/Vita?

edit: i like this kind of Builds...i also like Osicats Shatter-Build ;)
Everyone could play Full Glass-Cannon-autoattack-burst builds, but I like "trolling" my enemies. Like the mesmer is supposed to be: Play with your enemies

Thanks for your answer. Did really help, because my thoughts did really get near this equip.

I just got a few more points, which depend on personal playstyle I think.

So I was theorybuilding another version of you build

http://gw2skills.net...AqbM3Iuxej7G5NA

What do you think about it?

- Put out the points in Inspiration and put them into Dueling:

Taking the Pistol instead of Focus could be useful. The bleeding also does decent damage, plus you get the stun for applying confusion with scepter #3 more reliable or catch up runners.
I know, Focus in WvW is just Focus, nothing more to say :) But I always keep one in my bag to use speeding, pulling off foes or just mess groups up with warden.
Next point for dueling is the 25 minor, you get 3 extra stacks of confusion, by shattering the clones.
Plus the clone on dodge trait...I really recognized, that if you don't use Mirror Images, the clone production for Cry of Frustration is rather slow. So you really depend on Mirror Images.

So the movespeed for each Illusion, the Reflection and the Phantasm-Regeneration + the 2000 HP and 200 Healing...is this better? would it be more valueable or is it interchangeable with Dueling.
I also recognize that the regen is still bugged?! It's not really reliable to get the regen from your phantasm.

So with dueling you get 9 stacks of AoE Confusion + 5 on a single target...will be 14 stacks on a single target. With 1000 condition damage, you'll get off around 4-5k dmg on skill use. Pretty high with a condition damage value on the lower end.

Bother sharing your thoughts too?

so long

killed is not the same thing as shattered. Killed means they were killed by being replaced, or by being killed by damage. So this confusion application is lackluster.

Focus is far to useful for me as a control mechanism. If you find more use out of pistol than by all means, but to me focus is a must have for wvw above all other weapons.

I also have no problems with generating clones using staff #2 so I don't need the dodge clones. Try your build out and see how it works. Let me know.

Yeah, there was a lot of misinformation around. Some people sayed, that they have tested it and it works of shatters. Went to the mists a few days ago, tried it. Must admit, you're definitely right :) It doesn't work on shattering.

I always keep a focus for siege, pulling, running. In small scale fights pistol does shine a tiny bit more, but it depends on personal prefs.
What I noticed lately is kinda bug with Warden's Feedback. Temporal Curtain seems to neglect reflection a lot of times, if not nearly all the time.
Had an 1vs1 yesterday with a ranger, he kept hitting me, although there was a curtain between us. Maybe it's the same issue, that thieves had with their smoke screen? The area being too low?

You're right, my clone generation wasn't also a proble the last 2 days, the more I get used to your build.
Had a few 1vs3 to 5 moments yesterday. Was fun seeing the confusion damage popping. And it did hit hard. But they had a guardian keeping cleansing the conditions and stacking loads of boons. Nevertheless they could only kill me 2 out of 10 times, catching me offguard. And they had at least a thief, a ranger and a guardian. Even the thief jumped at me so often, but couldn't get me down. Instead I downed the thief a few times and the ranger twice. Was great fun, even I didn't kill them, they couldn't kill me in time too.

Today I will really give the torch a shot. Seems the changes fit well into this build.

What experience did you make with Phantasmal Healing? It did very often not apply or it applied only ever after around 6secs after spawning the Phantasm.
Yesterday I saw it apply from my iDuelist nearly instant but it seems to be a very small area around. Did apply very late from my iMage, maybe there was an issue with the Retaliation?!

soulstitch are you happy with your gear or are you aiming towards another set? i'm asking because in tpvp im running a condition shatter build with prec/tough/cond damage and it is fun.
I tried to make this work in wvw but was not able to get those stats that easily, 6 gold+ each armor item :\
So I tried carrion and was a little bit disapointed.
Have you tried full rabid gear in wvw or do you think your mix is superior to it?
