Not the best sidenode build. Low condi cleanse. Elixir holo beats this pretty easily.
This is, somehow, the thematically closest build we get to GW1 mesmer with confusion, torment and interrupts. Unless something surprising comes out, this build is the best mesmer build as of 16/07/2019.
Play as a sidenoder-roamer. Can tank in low ranks, use mobility in plat+. You don't really bring much into teamfights so try to avoid them.
1) Elixir holosmith is better than this build in any role we expect from a sidenoder.
2) Spellbreaker matchup is equal, but it brings more in a game (teamfight potential) compared to the chaos condi mirage.
3) 1v1ing power herald is still favored but not hard counter anymore. Use your cc effectively. Don't let them take you into teamfights.
4) Soulbeast has a lot of skills that can easily be interrupted. Don't waste your ccs and interrupt every key skill.
5) Avoid semi-mirror teamfights against any sidenoder that's a better teamfighter than you unless you are a better player than them.
Don’t know why people are downvoting this based on what I’ve seen below, but this is an AWESOME build for dueling and teamfights if you know how to interrupt people who are casting correctly. This build succeeds at being a good burster and helping people get their bursts off since you have multiple dazes. Ignore the haters below if you a good player looking for something fun on this site that can actually do great in games.
The problem with this build is that it has no real sustain at high levels where a scourge is almost always there. While the control aspects are good, I prefer inspirations instead of chaos for better healing sustain and condi cleanse. You still have great control, and a tankier condi rune will ensure you don't get knocked out by revs/thieves/burst shatter mesmers. Pistol/scepter burst can still bring down heavy hitters if you can land them.
It's no longer faceroll easy, but experienced mesmers should have a lot of fun. Axe is a little better for damage, but if you choose that, it's better to use axe/torch scepter/pistol and forget the staff. Use scepter for sustain instead and axe for burst. I personally don't like it in platinum due to high scourge condi pressure. Even with decent condi cleanse, you can't out heal scourge corruption. You need range for that.
I'd recommend Axe than scepter, it's hard to fight with mes without stealth or target-breaking skills. Overall, this bd is funny and easy to play in low ranks.
Mirage haters trying their best to keep this build downvoted. This is an absolute beast in ranked lmao what are you on
Played well this shouldn't have trouble beating anything the only thing which can mess with it is +1 by a rev or thief without CDs left to disengage
Condi mirage is not a meme at all, just not as broken OP as it used to be
One of the best sidenoders with crazy rotational speed from all the ports even even in tf this can melt the enemy
Can't tell me 20 stacks of torment bleed and confusion in 2 seconds while target is immob is somehow bad
One of my top 3 favorite ranked builds at the moment. Very annoying to play against and has a rather decent toolkit.
