I don't see how this build works. I haven't tried it yet, but recharge times on 5/8 of the spells seem to render the mesmer useless (or somewhat not as effective)in medium~prolonged battles. I play primarily as a mesmer in PvE and I think builds like this are what makes people feel mesmers suck at PvE. Gabe14:46, 24 May 2007 (CEST)
Remember that in areas that contain Spirits, it is better to use Arcane Echo on Energy Surge, since Spiritual Pain will recharge instantly.
Should this not be the other way round. If there are spirits rather use Spiritual Pain since it will recharge quicker ?
- You echo your Esurge since Spiritual recharges instantly anyways. Swiftslash \\ 15:58, 2 June 2007 (CEST)
TBH you'd do more DoT with backfire + empathy--Mr Preezy 21:40, 2 June 2007 (CEST)
Runes of Superior Domination Magic, Superior Vigor, Minor Fast Casting, Minor Inspiration Magic.
Why use a superior rune (with -75 health) when Energy Surge maxes out at -8 energy/-80 health @at lvl 14 (which can be accomplished with +1 mask and +1 minor rune and no health penalty)?
- I'm assuming its to make WW and Spiritual Pain deal more damage, though not much. --NYC Elite 04:49, 25 June 2007 (EDT)
- I'm guessing its to add 10 more damage to e-surge if you manage to get a +1 blessing =P. Stryk the Lightning 11:42, 5 July 2007 (CEST)
E-Surge and E-Burn has been buffed, bringing the 10 dmg for each point of energy lost to 12 damage, so this might have a comeback. --Guild of Deals 18:30, 14 October 2007 (CEST)
