Just a quick post to see if anyone else has had the same experience.
I tried and failed to enjoy mesmer's for year. If you asked me why I couldn't get on board, I honestly couldn't tell you. Maybe the learning curve was alittle too steep. Maybe they just felt alittle weak when you first make them.
I have recently boosted a sylvari mesmer, and am halfway through PoF. And she is quickly becoming my preferred character. I have fallen in love with the mind-asssassin playstyle of the mirage, teleporting around, creating and shattering clones and mirrors, while "backstabbing" like crazy.
Did any of you take some time to get used to the unorthodox playstyle? Can you think of another class in another MMO that is even remotely similar?
