My main is a thief, however, I've recently been playing alot more mesmer in tournaments as I'm trying to learn the class.
As a thief, I've found mesmers to be one of the more annoying classes to kill, however, as a mesmer, I find that I'm having alot of problems against thieves, specifically backstab thieves.
Perhaps its because I'm not as familiar with the Mesmer, or perhaps there's some theory I'm missing out on. I'm hoping someone can give me some tips as to how to deal with backstab thieves to improve my chances of winning against them.
Currently, I usually attempt to use Decoy to stealth while they are in stealth as to prevent them from getting a backstab off, or use distortion to try to burn their backstab. Even then, being brought down 10k HP from C&D+Mug is still quite painful as it usually leaves me in 40-60% HP range.
