So since reading this, I picked up a rare focus from the TP and made sure my trait skills gave my illusions as much advantage and damage as I could. iWarden has been GREAT!
thing about it I don't like is I wish it was a little faster to cast (miss the fast casting attribute from GW1).
I have done AC, squared off solo against veterans and champions and taken on level 60-80 mobs using it and it works! Last night a ran into a group of four or five Jotun (they were standing around in a square pattern). I literally ran right into the middle and cast iWarden. I let them engage and let her do her thing greatly reducing their health then I attacked with flurry and shattered. All four dead at once. If you crit at all doing this (i'm averaging 31-40% crit chance depending on weapons and armor) it feels almost doing a one-shot.
The other tactic I like is launch illusionary leap and then swap to get into melee range, cast iWarden and then flurry, dodge back creating a clone for three and then shattering before and of my illusions die but not before allowing them to inflct damage.
I really like the focus' temporal curtain as well. If you use this to pull foes to you, you can skip using swap with illusionary leap.
I like sword/focus + gs when I am alone with create clone on dodge. Utility skills are (order not importan):
Sig of insp (just started using it and love all the blocks from Aegis)
Mantra of resolve traited for a 3rd casting for condition removal
Mirror images for stun break and to create illusions for shatter damage and AI target draw
I have not settled on an elite. I don't really like any of them except time warp and that is only fun in a party in tight spaces. Also, my illusions have fury so casting TW on them is just nuts.
Most of my gear is modified for a beserker and/or rampager with some armor/health upgrades. Personally I think i'm not "glass" enough and need to pour more into power, precision, crit, etc.
I'm good with being squishy because I usually do dungeons with a "heavy" (tanked up gaurdian) and, just recently, an ele set up for healing. Last time we did AC, for the first time, Khoeler really wasn't that much of problem. He only downed me once (usually he makes me his bitch
Wow I really went on but I'm pretty excited about the effectiveness of a lot of the advice here and I am still not using max gear yet. Can't wait for that.
I change around my utilities, but I usually have a condition removal and stun break of some kind (troll killin' is fun).

Well it's definitely not the first one, as you can't get 80 trait points unless you have the Korean version.
Then it is 30 20 0 0 20. I can see me going hard on Domination.

I am confused by the claims that it is hard to kill.
My girl rarely dies before she is allowed both time to cause damage and let me shatter her. Unfortunately, I do not remember exactly which trait skills I have selected. I will try to remember and log in when I get home and update.
