Decent build, can full fill a similar utility role that chrono pre-shatter nerf had. A mix of both tankiness, reliable boon support and utility from stealth, CC and downstate control. Likely the best bet for mesmer in wvw zerging at the moment.
Why domination tho? If you run Mirage instead of it you get even better sustain and Sand Shards which strip boons from 5 targets and convert them to you. This sound to me like a must pick for frontline mesmer.
This build fills mostly the same role as Chronomancer support before it, but is significantly easier to play. Ridiculous tankiness and self sustain lets you get safe stomps in dangerous situations and get important revives with SoI.
It's indeed better than crippled chrono, But I really don't see a point in running this build. It's very niche, and is outclassed by the rest of support classes by a huge margin.
Let's say that it is a bit better than chrono build, but it's still far from playable.
