In Topic: Armor picks for a mesmer?

Just accept it that sometimes you will die and continue to be glass cannon, if you sacrifice one of your stats for toug or vit it will not make big difference, but you will lose damage.

In Topic: Fully exotic geared lv 80s, what are your stats?

23 October 2012 - 07:42 AM

Assuming that you will use same set items for armor/jewel:

Full exotic armors give two stats at 224 (16% crit dmg) and one at 315.
Full exotic jewels give two stats at 310 (27% crit dmg) and one at 436.
Weapons give two stats at 128 (9% crit dmg) and one at 179 (almost identical 2h and 2*1h).
My Mesmer Rampager + Opal + Rampager wep is having extra:
Power - 662, Condition - 662, Precision - 930 without the extra points from talents.

My Ele Cleric + Sapphire + Cleric wep is having extra:
Power - 662, Toughness - 662, Healing 930 without the extra points from talents.

In Topic: Viability of Mesmer condition builds VS. DD

First of all, going just black and white, not helps you maximise your DPS

1. condition damage cannot hurt objects...snip*
Let me add my number 1 - what will happen if you encounter heavy defended target (lot of armor and/or toughnes)?
Conditions are not affected by defense stats and Weakness, direct damage on the other hand is... a lot!

2. Mesmer condition builds rely on illusions almost completely... snip*
That is the Mesmer special mechanic - the illusions, if you are not using them is like Elementalist that don`t change atunments.
They do a lot direct and DOT damage they draw attention take hits from AOE *hint* 5 target AOEs

3. Front loaded VS. Back loaded damage... snip*
Burst vs DPS, DPS is always better if the fight lasts longer than 10 sec.

4. Even when fully ramped up, condition damage specs do not do more damage over time than a Mesmer DD spec
Again soft vs hard targets. You know that condition using mesmers are not waving wet noodles right?

5. Conditions can be overwritten/Capped
If condition heavy character takes property on the stack everyone benefits, and often condition based characters have tools to refresh those stacks every other second ergo take property of it.

6. DD specs are better at Dynamic Events
Clones come in price of dozen per penny, when they die - they do their job applying debufs and confusion, and also saving someone`s valuable back parts from damage... again the 5 target aoe

Again this is just my humble opinion and I'm sure some disagree, but no matter how much survivability you gain from running staff and the support it offers, DD spec for Mesmer seems to be the most useful.

I run staff/GS mixed DD/Condition spec atm (Power, Precision, Condition) and what i can say is that going fully black or white there will be the big bad monster named "diminishing return" that will make your day bad.

the shatter recharger is VERY useful. I foten use distortion in the beginning of a big fight to tank some of the heavy incoming damage and later on it gets recharged by this trait to use it again in a pinch situation.
sometimes if i mess up it recharges cof almost instantly after usage meaning a very high stack of confusion.
and I don't see 3 ways to blind a foe. only torch 4 and i use scepter/torch only in gtfo situations, otherwise 100% staff. I even don't use scepter much with this build, confusing images is just way to slow and the other skills are garbage (iMage is 200% garbage!).
I'll see if another 2nd weapon setup works better, but staff is all you need to destroy everything.

yeah that +bounce trait is a real killer. I think I'll use it over shatter recharge trait, which is almost only useful when messing up but then very usefull :P

I'm sooo waiting for a torch buff and perhaps scepter buff. this build with a viable iMage and faster confusing images would rock so hard :>

You have the torch skill "The Prestige" that applies blind, than you have the chain skill from scepter and chaos armor.

May be you can consider changing your second trait in "Illusions" for Blinding Befwhatever it is name is - when you apply blind your target gets confusion. You have 3 different ways to apply blind so you can benefit more than this conditional shatter recharger.
