    Any reason why Signet Mesmers are so unpopular? People don't seem to run Ignorance that much...
    With Mantra of Inscriptions the signets can recharge fairly fast even if Keystone gets shutdown.

    What do you think of the following build, should Dom be higher?
    OQBDAooDP3UuGyvHAA8BPgfA
    Mesmer/???
    Fast Casting: 8 + 1
    Domination Magic: 10 + 1
    Inspiration Magic: 12 + 1+ 1

    • Wastrel's Demise (Wastrel's Worry?)
    • Signet of Disruption
    • Signet of Distraction
    • Leech Signet
    • Misc
    • Signet of Humility
    • Mantra of Inscriptions
    • Keystone Signet

    Misc: Shatter/Drain Enchantment, Complicate, Blackout, Death Pact Signet, Mantra of Resolve (for casting Signet of Humility), Signet of Pious Restraint, etc

    The extra 15 armor from Artificers Insignia can offset not meeting shield req. With this build you can sit in shield set most of the time. If you play the build well you probably have to ;).

    With a 20 sec disable Signet of Distraction can be quite annoying. And if the enemy team somehow lets you, you can have Signet of Humility on more than one target.

    Does repeatedly using and cancelling your signet rupts on cancel bots make them keep cancelling their skills?

    Highly inferior to regular wastrels builds sadly :(
    The absence of PI make wastrels bars way less effective since people can just continually cast and it makes it way harder for the mesmer to get momentum and set up rupts effectively.
    Your build also doesn't allow to run dual ench remove nor dash without damaging its mechanics big time, which sucks since those skills are one of the big appeals of wastrel mesmers.
    Damage is also considerably lower without pspike
    Humsig sure is nice but doesn't really fit on a wastrel mesmer in my opinion

    I had made an illusion mesmer bar with keystone signet, which everyone thought was shit so didn't really get to test it much


    Keystone makes ether signet viable and so you get a really insane energy management skill. It also makes humsig pretty nasty, you can almost keep 2 elites down with 16 illu

  4. In what teamcomp would you play this build tj?

    It's not really a wastrels bar anymore than a mes diversion+shame bar with wastrels in it is a regular wastrels bar.

    Not sure what you mean by keeping 2 elites down with 16 illu (and presumably humsig), but with Mantra of Inscriptions at 14 Inspiration + Keystone Signet + Signet of Humility = you can keep 2 elites down for 75% of the time (till they yell at someone to camp you). In theory you can arrange the usage so that for 2 seconds 3 elites are out but that's probably not as useful.

    sup.

    Running mantra of inscriptions on keystone bar is kind of a waste. If you really wanna lower cooldowns, Symbolic Posture/Keystone is way better. Still not worth it though.

    Only build worth running keystone signet in is signetofmysticwrathspike hehehe

  7. What do you guys think about Mokelele Smash on Dev Hammers?

    I think it's really fun and you can play with your adrenaline making it way harder for the monks to read your kd's. Example you could chain your Dev Hammer with enraging charge.

    I think protector's strike is just too good to be dropped out, but mokelele might be good aswell in some situations. For example in triple melee if playing two hammers. Have to try it sometime.

    - Anything with Strip Enchantment/PoD, because breakpoints.

    Most things just become a tiny bit better but if it wasn't viable before it won't be now. Plus two on your attributes = +10/15damage on your skills. It's not that big of a deal.

    Isn't it only +2 without elites? Was trying to remember why we never brought cruel spear on the warrior lol
