I returned to play GW2 recently, before that I played at the very start of the game. Created a new mesmer and decided to look for an interesting (for me) PvE build.
Interested in the Chronomancer, or rather its support build (Diviner items I think) and the build of the tank - through the Minstrel items.
But a friend who is now playing, said that support-Mesmer and even more so tank-Mesmer - not playable now (after nerfs) and there is better options
But I was still very interested in the minstrel build, as it looks very interesting and unusual: I played as tank-main in most MMO's or prefer supports, in most cases.
Question: do Mesmer tanks/supports play in fractals/raids, and if they do, in which set of equipment?
Especially interested in: is it relevant to now building through Minstrel? Yes, I understand that sometimes it may be unnecessary (as saw in some topic "it's overkill" for many activities), but I am interested in its overall usefulness. Can I play with it in raids and fractals, even if my damage will be near zero with it? Or no-one will take me in random group for low/middle-level fractals and raids?
P.S. For the open world and similar activities I have a Mirage build, so I would like to diversify it with a strong supporting build specifically for hard-activities. So having in theory low-damage build (one of) - isn't problem for overall game.
Thank you in advance for your response ^_^
