    I could bring snowcrows here to see the results, but im not interested in seeing raid and I do play. I was jusat trying to look up results of mes because i dislike classes being gutted.

    When I play the two classes I do tend to play a lot are ele and mes.

    Here is my list of characters i got so far:

    Elementalist 80 with tempest:Talman nul
    Necromancer 80 with reaper:Zex vokar
    Mesmer level 80 no chrono yet:Klanga voosh.
    Level 80 Ranger with druid spec Jedkhan.

    Remember that for the moment in next patch, MoD couldn't be used from any direction anymore.
    Which will make duelling thieves way much hard than it is now. (because of their multiple teleport and move to behind.)
    And kitting in general harder because I can't see a mesmer who is kitting a warrior/holo/rev stop running and face his opponent to rupt a key skill.

    How does mantra help against a thief with instant casts and sword port through the walls?
    Mantras next patch going to be deleted, better to get something else lul. Oh btw, there is many other skills that need a face cast check, like BOULDER, rev stolen skill etc, why not turn every skill to check if you are facing him properly lol

    You can stop their combo rupting them when they :

    • rollface their auto while you are passively immob.
    • spamming flanking and larcenous strike.
    • spamming death blossom.
    • spamming vault.

    Honestly with no MoD rupt to counter pressure them It will be really hard to face thief while playing direct burst build (who were actually hardcountered by them btw.).

    Havent seen d/d spammers in ages, metabattle doing its job apparently.
    They most likely spam anything but not vault.
    Not like flanking is interruptable or even if u daze them after flanking what would it give to you when they can freely evade? The only purpose of mantra there is to catch them on using plasma but SURPRISE you cant increase cd on F2 skills xD
    And about hardcounter... do you think I dont know ?

    In practise in many situation, a rupt in their rotation is enough to :
    1) make them think 0.5 to 1sec to the next action.
    2) sometimes land an attack/temporise because as you say they will evade or teleport back.

    I know it's not that op but when you have a thief who start to meleegangband you It's better to shutdown them, making them teleport back and evade than freely let them continue their cycles.

    And plasma rupt should not be impacted by this maj because they rarely cast it melee.

  • MoD isn't just about interrupting though, it's about stopping the enemy from using skills for a short duration (daze). Disrupting player skill sequences is often enough to force an enemy to completely change their tactics or try to reset for another chance.
