Glamour is a lazy Boonshare Chrono build. Only thing it offers that the other doesn't it's the access to Superspeed.
Boonshare chrono is way better.
I see no value in this build compared to the one in meta section. Even the boonstrips that made this usable for a short while are nerfed.
Focus is simply better than staff. Blink is not needed on minstrel. Mimic for null field is definetly not worth instead of signet.
If anything this can be presented thourgh variation choices in the other mesmer build.
Glamours are making a slow return after boon stripping is making SoI less useful and the resistance spam of the glamour build counters the condi meta fairly decently. Good support, strong boonstrip, strong resistance uptime. Provides alacrity and quickness to buff allies, while remaining durable. Distortion share = win when used properly.
UPDATE - 20180617
Since I last voted, the Chronomancer has gone through some changes. Distortion share was removed, and the meta has shifted a bit. I am reducing my vote to GOOD to compensate. The current meta build has been refined from the one that was up when this build was first created, and the curated meta build is superior.
Very strong build with excellent personal defensive cooldowns making it fairly easy to play. Has the highest burst Resistance output of any build as well as massive boonrip pressure and cleansing, but runs out of steam in longer fights so usually only a great option for GvG. Uniquely suited to blink stomping and rezzing compared to other classes.
