I've been trying to break the norm of boring "stack power and crit" or "stack condition and use staff" builds, and have come up with somewhat of a "hybrid" Confusion stacking shatter build, as I see it. Let's see if you think it's at all viable...
I like the mainhand sword. Bottom line. I know Scepter would be a more suitable option for a confusion stacking, but I feel like then I lose that front end damage. I'm mostly (for now) wearing Power/Vitality/Condition Damage (Carrion) armor, so the idea is to gear as a Power build, with a ton of HP, and lots of ways to apply confusion via shatters.
I'm still a bit skeptical of the offhand Torch. Prestige is nice, but I don't really think the iMage helps at all in terms of confusion, since I am shattering basically anytime Mind Wrack or Cry of Frustration is up (so every 10-20 seconds). Phantasm damage is not important really, more just the utility the offhand gives me, since the phantasm will be shattered quickly most of the time.
Any thoughts? Tweaks? Things that will destroy me? Haven't had much time to test it since my server is getting wrecked in WvW but, in PvE it fairs pretty decently. I still feel a bit squishy, but I think it's mostly just my mentality of not having strong phantasms, thus making myself feel more vulnerable.
Edit: Ignore the runes/items in that link, didn't change em from last one. Would focus Power/Vit/Condition Damage.
