Combos? Macros? Skill cancelling?trying to l2p
Posted 15 December 2012 - 01:32 AM
I've seen other classes do this as well but I am more particular about mesmer since it's my main.
So I gotta ask?:
Are these people using macros? or some other program? Because when I try to do a combo super fast half the skills end up stopping or canceling each other which is very annoying. (wish I could just push the order of skills and it just pop them after c/d unless I doge or jump)
Tons of times I've had 2 already clones -> sword-3 -> Swap (hitting them and locking them) and pressing sword-2 with Shatter-1 and then only to notice Sword-2 has not activated.
now I know this seems very QQ but if my foe has a bunch of stacks of vulnerability I'd Kinda like my skill to land esp if the snare worked!!!
Am I doing something wrong?

2. Shatter skills work on top of your normal skills, i.e. They will not cancel any skills
3. Mirror images will cancel your sword2 (if that is part of your combo) so you need to time it that. The rest is pretty straight forward lol

1. If you have auto attack switched on, turn it off

continue by (optional)------> swap staff+staff 2 + dodge eather iwarlock.
You dont want a aotoattack in any of that sequense to make it slower. You dont need a macro thu, just learn the different combos. Another combo Is the movment combo I started use to catch ppl latley.
heal,portal, blink, staff 2, pistol stun, sword 3 , sword 3 sword 2 mirror mv. Same here a autoattack might delay something and you fail the combo timing.

You don't need macros, just dancing fingers. Once you train your fingers to execute a combo it becomes second nature.

I assigned keys 6-9 to C, Z, and R just to make them more accessible, and 0 to V (using double taps to dodge).
double taps feel risky, have you ever tried X as 0?
lioka is right, timing is everything!

I got the skills cancel a lot too due to auto attack. Ill blink in and cant get combos started. Never thought about disabling auto attack. Good to know.

A "cat leap" catch with a hard hit on a enemy who thinks hes safe, same with a sprint blink mirro sword 3, enemy dont have time to get defenses up can like you see on the GS mesmer take him to 20% hp, he get shocked and get 4 + confusion stacks, I get a huge dmg buff in terms of might stacks and can easy finish him off.
If I in close combat thu with a slow target in range I do the full Xee burst ( + phantasm and dodge for 3 shatter), youtube Xee burst if you want a tutoral.
@lioka qiao, agreed, as a keyboard action button user I say the same. Train up your fingers. Imagine if piano players used macros playing a song

Just wondering, why didn't you burst the hell out of that thief when he was spinning? It works 90% of time. Anyway, nice video.
