Thief looking to play a condi/power mesmer (with a scepter if possible)


Demonhead.7584

Recommended Posts

I've been playing Gw2 for umpteen years now, and almost exclusively on thief/engi (did however play sin/mes in gw1). I'm looking to now play a mesmer instead, as I've recently gotten back into DnD, and have fallen in love with Warlock. Specter for thief somewhat cures the itch to play a warlock-like class, but I feel mesmer is more akin to it in the long run.  

I'm super into scepters, but I can't get a roaming condi build to work for wvw. (I've seen a lot of really fun looking power-builds, but they seem to all use GS/Sword, and so it led me to assume that Scepter is the main condi wep for you guys.)

Currently, I play a Vipers/Carrion with Torment runes, on Condi Specter for wvw, so I'm curious if there's someting similar available, but for mesmers. I can't seem to build up condi as quickly (or as impactfully) as I can on my vipers thief. I might just be playing/doing something incorrectly, so I'm open to any thoughts/suggestions.

Any build suggestions would also be much appreciated ❤️

I'm playing Baldur's Gate 3 atm with warlock and all I can say is no.

NO

NOOOOOO

Mesmer is nothing like warlock, it has a phantasm and skills named like it, but it's closer to bard that has pumped charisma for non combat scenarios except all we have is combat and nothing uses charisma for the skill check. Oh and it randomly got a broken leg because we don't like it.

So there’s a few builds I use both hybrid and power with scepter. Chrono/core has a lot of power dmg output with scepter 2, it’s a block that spawns a clone which is really nice for a follow up shatter. Here is the chaos build I normally use with scepter http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PiwAEt7lJwwYJsLWJeuXptKA-zVpYbRNAGKAcEc0FMHE+RIlMOjeVBpLFs4so/MAA-w

 

Then there’s  also virtuoso. Now you can make it work with power but I prefer hybrid gear with scepter on virtuoso. Here’s that build as well. http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PiABw+trlVwUZJsLGKm2XtxKA-zVhYVB5vFBjZ0TSYD1WwZkpqqXpgFnF9nBAA-w
