Revision as of 18:32, June 10, 2009

it is 10 illusion right? (4 sec break point). --Frosty 16:27, 10 December 2008 (EST)

Do people really run this? I know imagined can be useful but distortion just seems like it's not worth it, and fire doesn't seem like it's useful other than on ganks. I mean, why mind blast here, there's nothing that GoLE + attune can't handle. It just seems like there's better options for stand and split play =\--GoldenGoldenstarStar 19:28, 10 December 2008 (EST)

I guess it means you can practically perma Distortion. --Frosty 19:32, 10 December 2008 (EST)

everyone on the upper portion of this page, is a complete fucking retard. This pumps way more damage than the R/P in arena's. I ran this with cirq, jatt, and torsen and won nearly every time. loldegen this out on a split? It will fucking kill you on a split. Between this, and a ranger to mtouch any nasty conditions, unless you send back a great deal of damage and healing, everything is going to die. You run a super split heavy build (Defy Pain War, 2 rangers, and 2 ele, 3 Monks), and these eles make stand-play fucking miserable. O, and shitterstone is actually quite terrible on a split in comparison to mindblast. The only reason people run it, is due to the fact euros don't counter split, but merely collapse at every possible chance and need the extra snare. --Readem 12:41, 18 December 2008 (EST)

Aura of Restoration

instead of Flame Djinn's Haste? Illoyon 19:18, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

This Build..

..is so f***ing ANNOYING! Three E/Me's and a Mo/W for RA/TA is the new OP'd tactic. Mindless blockspam inhibits any tactful play; E/Me's are near-invincible to all melee. Distortion needs to be 25/90'd BAD! Use this build while it lasts, because Anet becomes aware of it's OP'ness, Distortion (and perhaps any co-related E/Me skills) may get the thick end of the Nerfbat! --BlazingBurdy 14:02, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

it's strong but I don't think distortion needs to be nerfed to death. --Mel Ve Let 14:14, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

Distortion isn't what's wrong here. What's wrong here is that even with Distortion up this build is pretty much always on max energy. The only exceptions to that are exhaustion and random interrupts that manage to hit you through Distortion before you get the energy from Resto+Attune. - Panic sig7 14:27, 13 March 2009 (UTC)
And the fact it's near permanent, which ANet desperatly wants to avoid. --- VipermagiSig -- (contribs) (talk) 14:27, 13 March 2009 (UTC)

easily countered by a good monk and mbane in TA. --Readem 21:27, 16 March 2009 (UTC)

Easily countered by countering their every counter. Sounds as easy as the it is to do the above. Mindblast + 40/40 = perma-block; near-impossible even for PRO MBane rangers with rank 9-10. They'll be too busy counting seconds on ele that they'll forget the monk's there, healing everyone without a care in the world and the ele blasting everything away with Immolate and Rodgort/Meteor.

Dude, just switch targets. Leave the person alone until he is last one standing then just have everyone attack him. Even with imba mind blast+fire attunement energy management, he wont last long. --Drah McNinja 00:58, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Really; I've been rolling teams of this all day without magebane. If you think its imba, its just because you're bad at beating it, and would 100% chance have as much trouble beating a good hexway (which btw, is still more op :O) Rawrawr Dinosaur 18:54, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I know it's beatable. The issue is it takes too f'ing long to break through teams with these @$$hol3 E/Me's! It's mindless, OP'd blocking with little consequence! Sh*t, this is like 'Escape', but without the 'Elite' status! Mindblast, AoR and Glowing Gaze makes the -2 energy seem like a joke! C'mon guys, ya'll KNOW Distortion on Mindblasters is just too good! ADMIT IT already! --BlazingBurdy 19:50, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, but Distortion isn't the problem - on it's own it devours your energy like nothing else. I mean, where else is it used? It's only that Mind Blast gives you enough energy to use it lots, and Energy Storage means that even if you lose energy overall you have long enough to deal with it. You said it's like Escape but without being elite, but Mind Blast is elite and without Mind Blast, Distortion doesn't work. Yeah, possibly the build as a whole is OP, but Distortion shouldn't be nerfed, it's bad enough as it is in pretty much all situations except this one. 82.3.246.41 19:23, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
The thing is.. that anything that gives energy can supply distortion. Lyssa's Aura, E.Prodigy, E.Prism, or any skill/spell of it's likeness will abuse distortion to no end. Maybe it should be nerfed to dust in PvP only, but spared for PvE. It's OP'd otherwise.. --BlazingBurdy 18:46, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
This build isn't as hard to beat as people make it out to be. Don't QQ nerf everything when you can't beat it. Yes, it's OP because of the buffs to the fire skills and AoR. Yes distortion is annoying, get over it and sit everyone attacking one ele at a time till he's out of energy from distortion. In case you've never played MB before, lot harder to get that energy back once it's gone. Thus you have a useless ele that's waiting on energy regen because MB isn't giving energy back. I beat this bar 9/10 times I played it, and the people weren't bad at it either. --Link4all 21:47, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Whoever put the 40/40 illusion set is bad. Wanna get a half cast on a... stance? gg Joan %SpamzGodz

Combined with Mindblast/AoR/GlowingGaze/etc.. Distortion's a non-elite version of 'Escape' (except no IMS). It's utterly OP'd and melee-numbing with mindless blocking and virtually no penality for it. OP'd! --BlazingBurdy 01:43, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Magebane says hi--Relyk 07:50, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
That or take a 'sin, warrior, or dervish - Expose Defenses, Warrior's Cunning, and Guiding Hands all attack through block. 'sins and Warriors have a lot of attack through block skills, as well - you could use Furious Axe or Enraging Charge followed by Whirling Axe on a Warrior (though most Furious Axe warriors I've seen don't run quick adrenaline building skills for some dumb reason), for instance. Even a necro with Rigor Mortis could be helpful, but that has issues due to being a hex and having a long recharge (20 seconds). --Falseprophet 19:07, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
So are Shattering Assault sins back in the TA "meta" yet? :P 89.172.51.71 05:41, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

"40/40 illusion set"

The build mentions a 40/40 illusion set under equipment. That's useless. Distortion is a stance and doesn't benefit from it in any way.

Look 2 sections up. Toraen 17:33, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Uhm Distortion..

I think distortion is an aweful skill in this build its only for 3 secs... and u lose 2 energy whith it + 5 energy from the skill

then just add glyph of restoration for good healing, interupting might be a problem but distortion wil not help so good against interupt etc.

No, you are just terrible and retarded. And learn how to sign please. ~~~~ <- like this 152.226.7.204 08:35, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
True it's only at 3 seconds, but it's super quick recharge makes so much better than everything else. The energy loss is regained by spamming Mind Blast. There's almost nothing you can do against mesmer interrupts (you can cancel cast), but 99% physical interrupts can't hit you. You can make it last 4 seconds by speccing a 8-12-10 spread.

Rodgort's Invocation

wow Frostysig9000FrostytheAdmin 16:40, 17 May 2009 (UTC)
It's so this build can use distortion without worrying about energy whatsoever. If a ranger isn't running Magebane, they will have a hard time interrupting this, and it's immune to physical spikes in general. Toraen talk 16:44, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Definitely, although im not sure what part they would nerf. I guess nerf MB again? Already been nerfed and buffed multiple times. LifeWikiLOD7 03:32, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Distortion won't be the one nerfed, you can switch to different blocking easily enough. It's imbaness is quick recharging skills and has infinite energy. My guess is they'll lengthen the recharge on immolate and MB --AngelusEverton 12:11, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Distortion shouldn't be the one nerfed, it's never really used outside this build. They'd be better off actually buffing it (like reducing the energy cost per hit to 1 maybe) but then upping the recharge a bit so it can't be kept up 80% of the time. 81.110.25.23 12:29, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

And honestly if they was to fix bars like this you would have to really change a lot with the game, there is so much wrong and it has got worse over the last 2 years, the game really is broken and to fix it a major change would be needed (like reworking practically every proffesion). Frostysig9000FrostytheAdmin 12:48, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

Actually it does I am a bad obser D: Frostysig9000FrostytheAdmin 14:11, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

(Reset indent) It's partly AoR but mainly MB. I think it was buffed not long ago but either way you've been able to use it in very high-energy builds (I even tried an MB Healer in RA which actually worked, a bit) for a long time, it's just taken a while to get off the ground. I guess nobody thought of putting it with Distortion for a while either. 81.110.25.23 14:32, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

AoR isn't the problem. Although it is nice to distortion and then spam shit for heals while you lolblock. MB really isn't that OP, just this build and the team GvG build turns people over spanks them silly. Slightly longer recharges on MB and Immolate would fix this pretty easily. Until then I'll be raping people in GvG with this.--AngelusEverton
Tbh, no one skill on the bar is a big problem, but all in combination is lolimatankpumping60dpsatrange. Misery CowMisery Says Moo 14:57, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
You're definately right. Any other bar is just the old MB bar for energy management again without the OPness. It's not that popular yet really that it will be hit with the nerf bat. I have a feeling a bunch of these on a team will become popular in GvG. They just straight up rip people apart. If it becomes too popular this will be nerfed soon enough which is a shame. --AngelusEverton 15:19, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
Angelus don't be silly, this is like one of the most popular builds in the game atm. Have you played vs MBway in TA its fucking rediculous. Frostysig9000FrostytheAdmin 15:57, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

good call, forgot about TA --AngelusEverton 16:06, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
When I said it's mainly MB, MB is the key to this build, but you're dead right, it's more the synergy between MB and Distortion, plus the fact the Meteor and Immolate give you quick-recharge damage skills which work in small battles (i.e. RA, TA, and splits), topped off with the extra energy from AoR which lends to spamming cheap skills as well as giving health for extra survivability (with no self healing even your awesome blocking wouldn't be able to keep you alive since 1/4 of attack will still go through and there are spells to worry about too). I hope they don't nerf MB too much though, I quite like it, and it's only really this build it's OP in. 81.110.25.23 18:33, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
its actually all the energy gain skills combined tbh Terran 18:35, 21 May 2009 (UTC)
(EC)That's what I was trying to say, MB isn't OP, it's just the whole bar together is ridiculous, nerfing shit that's overpowered now will never work since all of this OPness is deep in the game now, starting like 2 years ago, and now it's REALLY coming through (if it wasn't already) Frostysig9000FrostytheAdmin 18:37, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

I would be happy if they just made MBs energy return more conditional. Right now, you play this by turning your keyboard upside down and smacking it with alternate hands. every skill is on a use-on-recharge basis. I'm not sure what that condition would be, since they probably want to keep it in line with the other "mind" skills.--|Hipowi sig Hipowi pew pew pew 19:41, 25 May 2009 (UTC)
I guess that's "skill synergy" for you... non of the skills on their own are really overpowered (I mean MB is pretty powerful and so on but not drastically OP like some things) but when you put them all together, they are. I suppose it's the fact that they are all powerful skills, whereas many builds take slightly underpowered skills (or at least, compared to most of these) since there are no better options, they need a certain type of skill, or they synergise or whatever (like melee chars all need IAS and IMS so will take one even if it's not the best ever et.c.). 86.24.115.34 21:22, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

I like Fragility instead of rodgort's so immolate causes an extra 30 damage every like 3 seconds which i "think" is collectively, so over time, more damage than rodgort's Exo Oo 23:05, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

and also, if being used in RA this is, fire isn't the only condition thrown around and spiking isn't needed Exo Oo 19:50, 26 May 2009 (UTC)
Imho Ele's are supposed to be about damage greater than meleers, but not uber-wtf-bbq-blockage-immune-to-all-forms-of-physicals either. There's nothing skillful about denying physical attackers completely; it's OP'd. --BlazingBurdy 14:00, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Hahahahaha, i love how half this discussion isn't even a discussion, but merely a bunch of melee players raging that eles got buffed. Prior to skill changes to MB, Ether Prism, etc, eles hardly saw any GvG use, largely because of their squishiness and lack of defense. Finally, eles get some buffs with AoR and MB and Ether Prism, and the melee classes, that have ALWAYS been used endlessly in gvg (warriors or sins always frontline, and when was the last time you saw a meta balanced build without a ranger, huh?) just start raging b/c of blocking. They're like... "omg! i got blocked by an ele! i cant just hit C and faceroll my keyboard anymore! nooooooo, eles must be OP'd, yeah that's it, OP'd" hahahahaha rofl 98.27.164.4 19:27, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, you're obviously stupid and terrible at the game. --Crowels[슴Mc슴]Mootles 19:30, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
/Agree. There are a few ways to counter these builds, but they pretty much only fall into Mesmer. I don't really like how accessible the blocking is for this build though, that is where this really becomes a little too powerful; aside from 1-2'ing a monk.--Ikimono"a rabid grizzly bear"Monk-Paragon-icon 19:54, 9 June 2009 (UTC)
Only imba skill on the bar is MB. many powerful skills in the game are balanced because there is some limiting factor, be it recharge, cast time, energy, or conditional effect. this bar is a bunch of skills that are limited only by high energy cost, and fuels it with a skill that fufils its own conditional.--|Hipowi sig Hipowi pew pew pew 20:03, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Suppose this will get hit prty hard by the nerfbat, if we follow Anets policies. Massive Image-Massive Sig 15:03, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, tbh it probably needs a minor nerf, but given ANet they'll probably just do it what they did to Smiter's Boon... "Mind Blast. 25e 2activation 90recharge. Target foe takes 1 Fire Damage. If that foe has less Energy than you, you gain 1 Energy." Or something. Which is a shame, because I do like Mind Blast, though atm it is slightly too powerful. 81.107.77.52 16:57, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
More like they'll increase the recharge-time/energy-cost of distortion.Ikimono"a rabid grizzly bear"Monk-Paragon-icon 17:38, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
The broken thing isn't Distortion... Frostysig9000FrostytheAdmin 17:52, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
distortion's not the problem, they nerfed that years ago for rangers~WaffleZWafflesigLOL(contribs) 18:32, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
