It actually does effect the burst in the same way the reduced damage of the berserker effects the burst. If you're shattering (I'm not running 100% crit damage) but at 78% crit damage a 3 shatter is around 2700(average I'm sure i can be higher or lower) per phantasm/clone. Removing the 1500-2000 or so damage from the berserker critting lowers your burst by almost the same amount as only shattering 2 clones instead of a 3 or 4. Not to mention it also means that you cannot cripple your target to prevent him from kitting/running out of range from you pre-shatters.

Yes the Mirror Image/Decoy or dodge burst is still fine but those skills have twice the cooldown of the berserker and don't cripple your target. It most certainly does effect pvp. Factor in the dodging/blind preventing casts these add up to big changes. Honestly shatter builds pre the last 2 nerfs were more faceroll than backstab thieves ever could be with less counters.

Still doesnt affect the burst. It only affects damage done before or after the burst. The burst uses a stun/immobolize so cripple isnt needed and when bursting even with the delay the clones should still hit while the opponent is stunned /immobolized they arent attacking during the burst. This unintentional nerf/bug really only affects the fighting outside the combo burst.
As with any burst all you have to do is block it and its probably the most obvious burst atm.

This is probably a PVP nerf seeing as there was a quote by anet on how they wanted to reduce some of the damage of overall "burst" builds. Sad that the Mesmer is the only one to really have it spill over into PVE tho.

It doesnt even affect the burst it affects all other aspects of play as the mesmer. you can still create clone and blow it up for the burst. They really just messed things up and need fixing and i got no hope for that. oh well.

2 big problems for me are "swap" and "P Berserker"
With Swap the clone created doesnt always get to the target so you cant immobolize them. this is due to the delay and they sometimes leap and go nowhere.
The P berserker used to spawn and immediately hit and cripple the foe. Now it is summoned and with the delay the foe can just run out of its range before it attacks.

Lord Ele downed state well i should say vapor form is the most OP downed skill and needs a quick fix just remove the health reset and no would care about it any more even though theirs are alot of things that can be done to get away while in vapor form.

I'm pretty sure vengeance > mist form.

Ele's are rediculously strong. They need to be nerfed.
