Hi all you fine purple ones! :-)
After a long (3 year) hiatus I started to play again some weeks ago. Bought PoF, unlocked the mounts and some Mastery points
in PoF-zones with my old main (still core Ranger). Unlocked Soulbeast. So I already know how to solo some HPs in PoF (on ranger though).
From my memory, I recall most of HoT-HPs pretty nasty. That was early 2015 on my ranger. Aside from performance issues,
that was one of the reasons why I took that long of a break.
Now I leveled a new Mesmer from 50 to 80 (got a scroll from birthday). And I fell in love with it :->>
Leveling was quite fun. Sometimes a bit complicated, but all round I felt pretty capable in OW and story content. I had used the OW-build from metabattle
(GS, Sw/Sw with some variations). Gearwise I used what I got from quests (some TP). Traitlines were Domination 221, Dueling 133, Illusions 122.
Now my question:
What is the best(easiest) route for unlocking Chronomancer + Mirage. I can imagine doing PoF first to unlock Chrono. as it seems to be easier than to jump in HoT again.
I have gliding at 3. the raptor (3), springer(3), skimmer & jackal (both at 1). No way points unlocked in HoT/PoF (as a fresh 80).
I can purchase exotic gear from the TP and have some berserker asc. jewelry from my ranger.
-> Should I continue playing GS+Sw/Sw Power/Berserker or switch to a condi build staff/scepter?
-> Which elite-spec first? Chrono or Mirage? (Am gonna play both in the end.)
-> Which zones to start? HoT or PoF?
Your advice, any tipps and recommendations are really appreciated. Please help me.
I'm an older player with a lot experience but not the best reactions. I'm a filthy casual. But am flexible and willing to improve & to learn.
