This is a collection of builds using the Mesmer elite Illusionary Weaponry (IW). These builds are intended for use in PvE. Since the damage comes from IW, not your weapon, any melee weapon can be used.

Equipment

  • Swords and Axes are optimal for their speed and allowing you to bring an offhand.
  • Daggers are good for the speed and chance of double strike.
  • Scythes are good because they can hit multiple targets at once.
  • On all weapons, bring +5 energy and +30 health mods.
  • As far as offhands go, shields are good for +AR, +health, and damage reduction. If you want the energy from a focus, opt for one with +health and +armor mods.
