spot guide. Phase Retreat is a Staff skill that teleports the caster away from the target - however if you use it without a target, it will teleport you backwards a bit - and that's what we need. Proper usage of this skill and the map allows the mesmer to make shortcuts and escape damage. The goal of this guide is to teach you such spots so you don't have to waste your

for these.

Don't worry if you fail a couple of times - keep practicing on an empty hotjoin map at first and make sure you are mimicing what you see on the screens below.

On the images the screenshot on the left is the spot where you must stand and the right one is the destination.

Remember, you must not target enemy players while using these spots because that messes up the direction of the teleport.

Orb

  • These are shortcuts that can help you travel from Orb to the sidepoints.

Bear

  • 1st one is a shortcut Blue Team members can use while coming out of their base.
  • The 2nd is a simple shortcut.
  • The spot on the 3rd image is not the most useful, but you can use that rock to counter thief teleport (they can't go there), or you can hide behind the rock to block line of sigh (LoS).

Raven

  • These spots can help you make shortcuts or escape pursuers.

Wolf

  • 1st one is a shortcut Red Team members can use while coming out of their base.
  • The 2nd is a simple shortcut.
  • The 3rd one is like the rock on Bear, but it's actualy better because it's a bigger area.
