Need help with WvW Condition Mirage

Hi Chaps,

I returned to GW2 recently and wanted to go back to WvW smallscale fights as a Mirage.

After one week of trying different setups and builds nothing really worked for me. I don't know if the gear I have is dated, if I miss something in the rotations/skills used or if it's just a " git gud" matter. I have a hard time applying conditions and as soon as I have to deal with two enemies I'm dead in seconds (Especially Holosmith but I'm aware that is just a matter of knowledge and getting better)

Here is what I run now:
http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PiwAc+ZlJwuYYMEmJWyXvPPA-zRhYVB9yFdAZYmBBVEZmBuOJT2BA-e

Any Idea what to change or any of you guys have a guide for efficient skill usage? All I can find is 2017/2018 stuff.

I'm perfectly happy to practice more but after I came a across all the whining and "roll necro instead" on reddit and in Eternals or Borderlands I feel slightly discouraged.

Cheers

    if you dont use chaos line, try scepter+pistol as ranged weapon

    chaos 3-1-2 / dueling 2-2-3 / mirage 2-2-1
    false oasis / signet of midnight / arcane thievery / blink / jaunt
    scepter + torch / staff
    also rune of tormenting
    you can also swap staff for axe+pistol with some minor trait changes

    best build for roaming, extremely overpowered it can hardly die

    imo I find that staff condi mirages are not as "good" as scepter. More condi application iirc and can keep torch.

    Red = Dead...or someone runs away. Either way it's gone.

  • Thanks guys.

    I really like the axe but I give scepter a try. Tormenting runes are a bit out of budget atm but I will give them a go. later this week.

    what we ment to say is run both axe and scepter, replace staff with scepter + pistol and take pistol traits, see if you like it
