Can mirage atleast get swiftness on dodge? (for 10 secs on dodge, i mean look at daredevil dash it gets 10 secs each dodge and has 3 dodges lol?)
With the changes to mirage only having 1 dodge i feel like we need swiftness (nobody wants to take focus), atm mesmers in general has to take runes with 25% movement speed (unless you're chrono, but ye why would a mesmer play chrono). Let mirages go for other runes then 25% movement speed ones with easy access to swiftness like so many other classes on this game and maybe the 1 dodge wont feel so bad anymore.

    Mirages still absolutely vomit out clones. If you stop that, then sure bring that that dodge.

    Dont look a gift Asura in the mouth.
    No seriously, dont. Shark teeth.

    swiftness on dodge? that would be overpowered.

    add it to core mes bcs it needs mobility way more than mirage, maybe add to sword trait (in dueling) "+25% movement speed while wielding a sword"

    ... because mirage can't use a sword and does also not have a sword ambush that improves mobility even further...

    Give it to core and mirage will benefit even more of it.

    Besides that: a lot of classes are forced into certain runes to be viable. Runes are a key part of your build. They have been buffed recently to be able to define your playstyle. And if you want mobility on a spec that is not meant to have it, then you have to sacrifice something.

    In other words: if you give mesmer more swiftness, then you give it a free 10 to 15% damage increase as well, as it can just run scholar rune.

    Mirage dodge already increases movement speed with a minor trait.
