You guys are gonna hate this post. I'm new. And playing Mesmer. Just that alone is a warning sign right? I leveled with a Greatsword Dom build and I really understand that rotation and that style of gameplay. I've mostly pulled 1-2 mobs and used my clones as tanks and kited them out away from other mobs. I died kinda often, but not too bad. So now I'm 80 and I'm running this build from metabattle https://metabattle.com/wiki/Build:Mesmer_-_Greatsword_Burst. I'm really struggling. I'm doing the POF story and it's almost impossible to avoid 7-8 mobs in the story. I just mentally can't handle it. There's so much going on and I die A LOT.
Is there a build/rotation that's good for noobs with low skill cap? I'm just so slow to react, I think it's my fault. This is so much harder than WoW. I'm used to never moving (except out of ouch) and casting from a long ways away, lol. So there's a pretty big learning curve for me.
If there even is a build for bad mesmers like me, can you link it and possibly explain the rotation a bit?
PS - everyone told me to play Necro but everyone ALSO told me Necro players can't get groups. I really like the mesmer, it's so pretty, but maybe it's just too hard for me. I dunno.
