If you are by yourself, I think Arcane Theivery is the better choice.

I agree.

unless you put it on when you are about to face a known boss worth stealing from.

That's exactly how I use it :) Was only trying to hear fellow mesmers out and get more suggestions of buffs to steal.  So far nice suggestions, thanks!  Oh and btw while doing a CoF p1 one of these days I noticed that the last boss also has Might stacks to steal (I think the name of the buff is "Crystalline Might").

In Topic: Shattering Healing Support build

11 December 2012 - 12:44 PM

I would LOVE to try a build like this one if it wasn't for one thing: unfortunately the Inspiration XII trait only heals yourself :(

I remember when I first saw this trait and had the same idea than you, healing through shattering would be awesome!  But later I realized it only heals yourself, which sucks :(

It seems in your build the only way to heal other ppl is through Phantasmal Healing, which is a bit iffy since not all phantasms apply it the same way (I think iDuelist is the most reliable atm) and it also requires careful positioning of the phantasms so they are in range of the ppl you want to heal.  Of course, Chaos Armor randomly gives regen as well and you could wait to get that and copy it over... but that's, well, even less reliable due to the randomness of it...

I think this is why mantra builds are the only ones ppl use if they want to go and try healing, since those are the only ones that have traits that allow you to heal others besides yourself...  UNLESS, the (6) ability of having 6x Superior Runes of Dwayna (instead of Monk) is triggered by the Inspiration XII trait, that would allow you to give regen to nearby allies on shattering.  But I don't think it does since it mentions "when using a healing skill"... ah well :(

In Topic: After playing GW2, I decided I'd prefer a sub fee over any cash shop

30 November 2012 - 04:12 PM

I know this is probably just me, but I'm so used to play sub MMOs without cash shops that the mere fact that you're able to buy, for example, extra bank slots with gold that you can earn in-game, makes buying those same bank slots with real cash (through gems) even feel like "cheating" to me...  :P   But then again, earning my own money in-game (via farming, crafting, etc) is part of the fun of an MMO to me personally.

In Topic: What did you think of the pact rare weapons?

25 October 2012 - 02:20 PM

I actually like the scepter...  think I'm gonna get that once I finish my story.

In Topic: Secret Personal Treat Bag Locations

24 October 2012 - 11:04 AM

There's another location I found those in when doing the Kessex Hills clue (Blackroot).  If you scan (corporeal iirc) near the hut with the wooden coffins a suspicious location will appear on top of the straw roof.  You can climb there (I used one of the skull pikes) to activate it and once you do another suspicious location will appear in the nearby stone wall that'l give you 3 or 4 (can't remember) personal ToT bags.

Thanks to the above posters for their findings!
