At equal skill, you don't kill other roaming spec with power.(And versus high level rev, putting condi pressure on them is the best option for your team.)I play DPS mirage when I run in PvP and my k/d ration against them still falls in my favor. I can recall a couple intense fights. Not saying I am a good Mirage player (which I am not) or they were bad, but having experience on both sides of the fence, our skill was fairly equal.perfect for learning the class mechanics.Not really, learning class mechanics aka illusion generation and shatter is better on core than in mirage where ambush are a specific gameplay.Mechanics of ambush attacks and mirage utilities due to condi being a bit more forgiving (not a glass cannon, can take a few hits while learning)I personally poke fun of those that keep using it, however its usually in jest as I used it before so I know how easy it is. This is why I say "Those that can't Mirage properly, play condi". I didnt know how to play it properly, hence I used it as it was ez mode so it was perfect to use.It's not about what is easy or not but about what is efficient or not when we talk about high level PvP. If power or tank or whatelse is more efficient (even if there is hard learing curve), then you shouldn't see condimirage in top 100/finalAT/mAT. It's not the case.Then easy or not, a mirage who rollface his keyboard will get powned in less than 5 sec versus a mirage (or any other meta build) who time his skills.Trying to make player who use the bests tools options currently available feel guilty with the argument : "I farm 1vX noobs with it" so it's just a noob things is the worst noob reasoning I ever see. On every build, everyone can farm 1vX noobs (last time I was in WvW(2 month ago.) I do the same with powercoremes.).Play power/tank/signet/whatelse if you want but don't make generality concerning player who use 100% of their class potential.And in WvW, power has always been a strong option. (and for many players it's probably easier to put a 3k gs ambush at 1200 range than to come in mele to condi burst.).Condi Mirage is still more common in WvW than DPS (in my t2/3 server matches anyway). It is a strong option for sure, however the condi sustain of condi mirage is better than the sustain of a DPS mirage imo.Condi mirage vs DPS mirage of equal skill, condi will come out on top in PvP and WvW. Reason theres not much in high ranks PvP is they dont bring anything to a team setting and high level is about proper team composition. If they did bring even a slight decent thing to PvP, you would def see more. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
