Usage

The usage section of this build is still being tested! A few important notes for now:

  • Your shatters are very important to your DPS
  • Your ability to generate "clones" (blades) remains important, as it does in any mesmer build
  • A significant amount of your damage comes from Phantasms.

In general you should be using most of your skills on cooldown, however should be used defensively or to break Defiance bars.

A very fun and powerful build. DPS is definitely sufficient and I'm able to push out 23k DPS consistently without having min maxing rotations. This build however does have some problem with survivability, making rune of durability much more ideal for my game play.
