Deals pretty impressive damage given how much defence it has, but very niche.

Warming Hearth gave this build 2 stars • July 2022
This build remains as niche as ever, playable on only 2 to 4 encounters. Only hardcore mesmer mains should consider the investment of this gear set for this uncommon build. Even on those 2 bosses, this build should only be played in skilled and confident groups that want to maximise their damage. Otherwise, a quickness heal tank firebrand would be better for the group.
