Fractal 40 farm: Possible chrono improvements?

Hi guys,
i have been farming fractal 40 lately and so i read few guides how to do it. Most of them were similar in many aspects but almost all of them had diference in chronomacner rotations. Right now i am doing this:

portal, Alacrity well while running down, sword 3 in range.
swap, shild 5, SoI, shild 4, sword 2, F1,
then depends on the speed of the group either F2 or few autos sword 3 and F2
Portal, swap, take portal , Focus 4, Focus 4, F4 (to give distortion to others just apearing so they dont get cced), take portal again and run to platform, swap

Alaccrity well in cutsnece
shild 5, cs, SoI, sword 2
position myslf behind my group

shild 5, swap, SoI, focus 5, sword 2, sword 3 F1, F2
(if something fails then MOA to cc him again)

I would like to know if there are some tips and trics you can give to me.
For example i saw someone using timewarps, Well of action instead of recall, CS on effigy and so on. I am not an chrono veteran so i would like to hear from more experienced players if they could explain to me what are the advantages/disadvantages of other options and if/when are they better.
Thanks for your inputs.

    You might want to try posting this in the Mesmer forums. This is something that only experienced mesmer players would know, and there are probably plenty more there than in the dungeons forum.

    I barely had the problems about cc in better groups.

    I just run on effigy:

    Foc 5 - SW3 - CS - TW - Sh5 - Recall - Signet - CS end, repeat that after loop, siwitch to focus offhand and do AA or SW2

    Berserker

    go in with SW/Focus, AA until im in combat, CS - TW - CS end - Sh 5 - Recall - Signet

    Flap Flap

    directly after Beserk dies switch to Focus, cast SW3, wait till it flies, cast focus 5, cast SW3 imedietly when ready to proc 3rd illu
    switch to shield when it goes down, Sh 5, TW, F3, etc. (requires /gg in lobby ofc)

    Try to get SW2 and on cd and use F1 when the bosses are about to die.

    Some weavers reach an 80k dps peak at effigy with that so it cant be that bad.

    Why does that forum kitten me up picking a stupid emoji when just want to type a random :s

    With pots and food you can more or less just 11111 your way to victory, 40 bosses aren't that bad and don't exactly reqire complex rotations. But if you want that, then best ask in the mesmer forums, they'd know.

    Well it's not about completing fractal 40, it's about redoing fractal 40 for efficient and fast clearing to optimized the time.

    I know that. My point was that, it's kinda easy anyway so any benefit you gain from optimizing your rotation will be minimal. What you're essentialy doong is speedrunning where the difference will be in seconds i think.

    I mean, there's nothing wrong with that if that's what you want. Did you try the mesmer forums yet? It would be interesting if you or someone from your group did a video of clearing it first with your current rotation and then test other rotations to see how much time you saved.

  • I wiill put this in mesmer subforum. The runs are around 2 minutes (the best one i used stopwatch on was 1:55) and if i use CS on effigy i dont have it up for berserkr.
