curious, Why would You use force over accuracy or fire? it seems like with 100% crit damage that you want as much crit chance as can get and 5% crit>5%damage

@Piola, yes, can even add a valkyre instead of berzerker head.

@Bender222, Its due to the shatter cat specces untill latley had extremly high crit chance. The gear that now is chavalier used to be knight/berzerker mix. This led to sky rocketing crit chance and gave room for force. Latley more and more chavalier gear been avable (rings, nec and now accesosaries) and crit chance on the spec gone down but kept crit dmg and power high, win is survival in this trade.

To balance this the spec use crit food and oil + precision stacking sigil. I also just as you say changed force to 5% crit in latest setup AFTER you accived eather back or nec chavalier.

Atm in this setup with fully stacked preci I have 67% crit chance (85% with fury in staff mode). The latest and now in al guides uppdated sigil recomendation for Shatter Cat Heavy, original and Hybrid is:

OH- Sword OH Sigil of Accuracy: http://wiki.guildwar...gil_of_Accuracy
MH – Sword with Sigil of Fire: http://wiki.guildwar...i/Sigil_of_Fire
Staff – Sigil of Preception: http://wiki.guildwar...l_of_Perception

Another lovely video, I like so much the S/S but I miss the bullet of the pistol, it's a lovely CC...Rune of the Air?
Yes, forever! The best rune I can have on armor :wub:

P.S.
I'm using mirror too, shorter cooldown and now 2 secs reflection, another great survival tool.

Could this be used in PvE as well? If not, what changes would you recommend to make it work?

This is really a "glass build", my first Shatter Setup (loved it)...changed for more survivability :)

I actually use this spec primarily in WvW.
I like your build, but we have discussed the centaur runes vs. air before - I just find it rather difficult to give up the centaur runes for air. :)

Yes sir, I did. You have great playing skills and your mesmer build works wonders for you and others. Myself, I prefer my build (GS DPS zerker build) simply because I am used to it and it is quite effective in WvW as long as I am situationally aware of my surroundings and keep distance while kiting. Keep up the good work, mate.

I just recently switched to your Shatter Cat Heavy build. I am really liking it so far, but I was wondering why is it that you choose to go with the sword off-hand vs going with a pistol in the off-hand?

Maybe I really don't understand the sword phantasm but I feel its pretty weak in terms of damage compared to the duelist phantasm. While I think the block on the sword is good I just not sure if it is really that much better then having a ranged stun. Maybe I am missing something, but could you fill me on this.

Sorry for not keep this thread as updated as it was before. Atm the Official sticky have 150k+ wievs and get alot of quesition in ti. i prioritice to keep that plus the shatter cat homepage up to date.

@Sylo, Sword oh is cause the extremly short cd and high clone generation. The Iduelist do more dmg if you add that it spawn more often, also it hit in mele range making the shatter just after it hit, hit instant as a burst.

@TheOpethian, cheers


New build out.

Hi all, been lurking my sweet time and managed finally to gather my courage for registering here.

This thread seems to have been inactive for some time now. Are the osicat builds still working as intended after all the patches?
