    thief, if thief doesnt exist, mesmer would be meta right now in conquest.
    not only consume plasma, that most mesmer skill require target and stealth make mesmer unable to use skill even if you know where thief is,
    reason they heavily nerfed shadow art stealth uptime in the recent patch.

    warrior has been unplayable in pvp
    for 6 months till now

    good job balance team

    That's funny because Condi Chrono/Condi Mirage actually does deal well with a good number of matchup these days. (Considering it's a 1v1)

    If I play a stupid build, I deserve to die.
    If I beat people on a stupid build, I deserve to get away with it.

    you mean like 1-2 builds?, its kitten against most things. dunno about latest patch. nerf to scrapper and guard could potentially change those matchups, but previously they were auto loses.

    I wouldnt say mesmer would be meta, but mesmer would have a chance with the top dogs, there is plenty of things that mesmer struggles against.
    thief is just no effort kitten you thing that most other classes dont have to deal with.

    I did see a high level Chrono stalemate a Scrapper, both in WvW and PvP so I'm inclined to believe Condi Chrono at the very least, isn't pure doodoo.

    Mesmer is bad against everything that doesn't die under 0.5 sec. Of course thief is impossible kill if he knows that mesmer is close and some idea how to play.

  • Lol at the condi mesmer specs, mirage does no dmg and no pressure do to 1 dodge and chrono is dismissible by anything that has cleansing sigil because most your damage comes from confusion which is removed. Mesmers are newb stompers but in terms of mid to high lvl play there is no pressure and is easily ignored. Honestly the meta classes can kill mesmers pretty easily. Mirage is a joke because one dodge you have 8 second window to do your full burst, chrono is a joke because you focus on the split and they will die. People who continue to persist saying mesmers are in a ok spot clearly do not play mesmer or understand the class at all. Don't come to mesmer forums to troll.

    Easiest way to kill mesmer is kitten about it on this and other forums. xD

    Any class if they can survive your initial burst. Once you blow your cooldown and they are still alive your done. It just so happens theif can bypass/counter your initial burst the best. Also how come I don't see more mesmers rocking sword pistol in PvP ? I see everyone spamming GS. Sword has the best damage for mesmer and only weapon that is not a gimmick and can output some decent damage.

    how has sword "the most damage"
    1 is melee and mesmer is squishy so autoattacks are suicide.
    2 deals VERY low damage
    3 deals legit between 1 and 10 damage.
    where is the damage at?
    mesmer is a joke class at this point, GS is fun to play so people play it, tryhards wont play mesmer. people play mesmer for fun and GS is indeed fun so thats what they play.

  • GS is because at the end of the day it is still our most dmg dealing weapon due to gs 2 skill and even then its not tht huge, it is the best weapon to start the burst i mean blurred frenzy at max crit on all hits deals like what 2.5k? 3k?
