In Topic: How Do I Counter Mesmer Greatsword?

09 December 2012 - 12:10 PM

Sneeze in the general direction of the Phantasm that just stands there for 1-2 seconds before attacking. QED.

There is a delay but its not that bad.  Been playing mesmer for awhile now and its been one nerf after the next.  Some stealth nerfs as well that dont make much sense.  I still enjoy the class so I adapt.

The delay is enough for melee phantasms like the iBerzerker and iWarden to die immediately before they can do anything. The iWarden is particularly a problem because it used to have wonderful utility as an opener against ranged-only monsters. Now it'll just die immediately upon summoning.

To be honest, the new phantasm delay would cause me to suggest that you stay FAR FAR away from the Mesmer until they fix this issue. Having 1 skill on your 5-slot weapon bar rendered 75% useless in high-level situations is pretty frustrating, not to mention all the utility skills that are also borked by this.

My suggestion? Play something else until they fix this fiasco that the class has become.

Nice to know. If and when i'll have 250 ecto to waste, i'll upgrade. For now, i have way better weapons/stuff on my plans than a white light. Not to mention with my arah armor, goes in the middle of my shoulders , giving a wierd result :zzz:

Yeah, I was already kitted out in full exotics, and don't have any legendaries usable by the Mesmer that I like the look of, so I decided to splurge for a neat Asura-esque backpiece.

Still haven't been able to find out more about this, but judging from the stat pictures on dulfy.net, it seems like it is only for the cosmetic upgrade. It looks awesome, but I don't think I could afford the extra 250 ectos :(

I have it, it's cosmetic only. Looks awesome, worth the 250 ectos.

so im about to be able to make the back peice, i also just got a ring on a drop too, but im confused on the infusion slots. the ring i got has an offensive one, and if i was told correctly the only way for me to use that slot is buy the 275 relic +5 res one, that the simple 75 relic one wont go in the slot. so what the hell am i missing? whats the point of an "offensive" slot if it gives you the same res, but costs so much more just to fill? are the other type of infusions to fill those slots that arent at the fractal vendor? because right now it seems like offensive slots make no sense

There are craftable offensive and defensive infusions that only go in certain types of slots that give stat bonuses on top of the +5 agony resist.
