  • Survivor's Insignias
  • A +30 HP Spear and a selection of shields
  • High / Low Energy sets


  • Use Hex Eater Vortex or Shatter Hex on your front line team mates , removing their hexes and doing a large amount of armor ignoring damage to all nearby foes.
  • When not removing hexes, or Hex Eater Vortex and Shatter Hex are recharging, use Diversion, Power Leak, and Shame to pressure your enemy casters.
  • Use Inspired Enchantment and Power Drain to regain energy.
  • Use Resurrection Chant to revive fallen allies, try to ensure you will not be interrupted.


  • Being a Mesmer, daze and interruption are not as much of a threat to you as they would be other casters, but they should be watched for none the less.
  • This build, like many GvG caster builds, lacks a kiting skill. Meaning you must rely on your monks for your survival.
