Back from the archives. Doesn't see a whole lot of play and mesmer's not in a great spot at the moment, but even after all these years the build is still fine to play. Nerfs to other specs and minor buffs to Domination certainly help.

Great burst and mobility, good CC, good sustain (by shatter mes standards).

This is not the optimal variation of this build. Several changes have been made including utilities, traits, and a sigil swap. My stream always comes to me with the wrong build which I later correct. This build is good but can be difficult to play. Its a TEAMFIGHT spec. You dont want to be sidenoding with this. You CAN become a roamer or sidenoder but your main goal is teamfights. It is strong but in the current metagame you have a lot of hardcounters you cannot beat/answer.

Replace Torch with Focus for mobility,CC,cleave. Dont run mantras, rune signet of midnight for invis/blind/stunbreak and signet of illusions more multiple clones and shatter resets/double distortion, and run imagine burden over powerblock and this build is a 5/5 stars. Literally yeets anyone and the dmg output/disengage is insane.

The power shatter Mirage build is one of the strongest build in the PvP community, where you usually see at least 1 of them each match. It's only real weakness is its lack of condition cleanse, which makes it weak against the current meta condition Mesmer (Scourge not being a problem cause the shades can be easily avoided).

You can replace Portal for Mantra of Pain (so Mobility for extra damage) to deliver fatal blows to ennemies, mostly causing a "one shot" death by pressing multiple skills into a very short span of time. It can easily replace a Thief in a composition since the mobility is similar to the Thief's.

Some changes can be made to the traits too. Taking Desperate Decoy can add up to your survivability, and let's you charge your mantras in longer fights. Renewing Oasis can also be taken for the regeneration in Mirage Cloak, which actually helps dealing with some conditions.

All in all a very strong build that requires practice to get down to its fullest potential.

I play this build from time to time and it never fails to impress. I take Illu Ambush for optional slot and Imagined Burden for some nastiness but everything else is the same. The playstyle is very fun, nets powerful burst while being able to dodge while bursting which is tremendous. Sword ambush allows for mobility that Power Mes/Chrono lack. All in all a very powerful build... and certainly one of the overlooked ones. Its ranged damage is superior to cMirage's ranged staff damage IMO ... not to mention the might stacking is better for this build too.

Mirage provides durability and out of combat mobility that Power Chronomancer always lacked but significantly reduces the number of ways to CC a target. Recent nerfs to some of its worst matchups as well as the recent mesmer changes have made this build more effective.

The phantasm changes as well as the mind wrack ammo trait both give this build additional reach that help it in rougher matchups.
