Mesmer - Fractal Phantasm

Request to copy some anotations to the Meta build.[edit]

Hey, the wording of this page is pretty nice and clean. Am I allowed to copy bits of it for the Usage section of the Meta mesmer build? --Miku [iV] (talk) 07:19, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

I think you can. Feel free to do so as long as it fits both builds. --Necromancer Icon Color.pngHanz(talk) 07:44, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks ! Will do ! --Miku [iV] (talk) 09:46, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Gear[edit]

Both trait allocations have traited focus, which implies heavy usage of reflects. For that reason I would recommend changing Armor/Weapons to Assassins stats and runes to Rangers, in order to optimize reflect dmg with almost no loss in direct dps. - frifox

Edit: ranger runes got broken. They're no longer a good option for a mesmer. - frifox

Stats[edit]

Should weapons/trinkets also be assassin's? « Chase ♥ ♥ ♥ » 21:39, 20 March 2015 (UTC)

As long as they're ascended, and you don't hit past 100% crit chance, yeah. - frifox

Phantasmal strength[edit]

I would personally take Phantasmal strength instead of haste in sword off-hand build because phantasm's tend to die before they can get multiple hits off anyway. (and even if they do it still does less damage than with phantasmal strength). In addition to this the trait doesn't affect warden at all currently. And lastly illusion trait line gives you condition damage and shatter recharge. You don't need either of those.

Other than that very good and well written guide.

Archive maybe?[edit]

This build should now be incorporated as the dps variant in the main build if I am not mistaken. Fredor (talk) 00:12, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
