Just wanted to say this build still works Shireen 04:14, 16 May 2007 (CEST)

  • Faceplants* I just put together an IW team for HA *gasp* made it 5 rounds, 4 rounds, 5 rounds, then just 1 round using a pug group with a total cumlitive rank of 4. We ran snares (imagined and Katha's burden) instead of deflect arrows. Beat out the Thumper Way group, 2 Spike RT groups, a necro bloodspike group and a lot of balanced teams and pugs... Failed on the relic running each time though. The 1 rounder was a guild rated < 300 that brought that mass enchant mesmer removal skill. I am flored how well this little sucker did. 2 monks only. *Still laughing really hard* This sucker gets under Prot Spirit, never gets high enough for spirit bond, will knock on shadow form assasins, and in large zergie numbers, will overload most monks. Beweare of mass water snares, those caused problems. Shireen 07:00, 16 May 2007 (CEST)
Wow, screw that! I'm taking this sod in! See me in spikeway with my IASes! Oh yeah, might want a few more stances inestead of just distortion. There are some good stances out there to replace deflect arrows. Heal sig is so-so... I'd rather take another stance.

When I ran the build today, someone said the same thing and the whole team switched out Heal Sig for Illusion of weakness, it seemed to help a lot when we hit the spike group. Also brought along a couple Me/P for speed boost and support. The group was a lot less coordinated than the first team I got, and we only got 1 win, followed by 2 wins before they peetered out. Coodination is a definate MUST for this kind of team. Everyone has to be willing to body block and switch targets on call and on demand to get a distracted person. It is fun though, to scare the be-jesus out of those Ranger Spirit spammers who think their High AR and super high Hitpoints will save em... Shireen 22:36, 16 May 2007 (CEST)
Tell you guys what, as soon as I figure out a decent, easy to use team build, Ill post it. Right now it needs a little more work. Shireen 22:37, 16 May 2007 (CEST)
Just thought i would mention a 20% enchanting mod makes IW maintanable now as the recharge has been reduced after this artical was written 13:58, 1 June 2007 (CEST)

Checked and Reviewed

For Viability. Readem (talk*pvxcontribs) 16:14, 14 June 2007 (EDT)

This build is very viable and still works well for RA, AB and PVE. I've even taken a full load of 6 of these into HA and did well. It is very viable, just under used. Shireensysop 16:18, 14 June 2007 (EDT)


I like this a lot more

<pvxbig> [build prof=mesme/warri illusi=12+1+3 tactic=12 fastca=3+1][illusionary weaponry][flurry][conjure phantasm][ethereal burden][distortion][healing signet][illusion of weakness][resurrection signet][/build] </pvxbig>

More dps and something to do when IW stripped (Conjure Phantasm), anti kiting/running and energy management (Ethereal Burden) more health and anti-spike(Illssion of Weakness).Sjeps 0:44, 14 July 2007 (CEST)

I find IoW is overkill, I use imagined burden mostly instead, I tend to stick to using deadly rip, it's very powerful. Mostly put that in instead of conjure phantasm or illusion of weakness. ~~ Napalm Flame ^_^ Napalm Flame Sig Image (talk)·(contributions) 01:38, 14 July 2007 (CEST)

Excuse me but in the ratings somebody gave this build a 0. He specified that "Inferior to a warrior in almost every way." I don't really see the constructive criticism in that statement, as I and other people I know have defeated countless wars on one vs. one and team battles and I also think that his rating is bringing down a build that could potentially be in at least the "good" rating. Now since I'm a new member of PvXwiki I'm not going to delete it or anything like that just point it out and hope for the best. --Smithie 19:29, 8 September 2007 (CEST)

You couldn't delete it anyways... and his vote is his choice, it says why, so its good nuff... ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 04:56, 9 September 2007 (CEST)

it is a warrior. warriors ARE - no it isn't a prejudice - often childish kiddies. think, what kind of ppl create warriors. OF COURSE that doesn't mean, all warriors are idiots. but a big amount. ppl who create a mesmer instead ARE almost always intellectual - no, not a prejudice. someone who hasn't his avatar bashing and slashing around with a fat armor. etc etc.
