Its been a long time since I recorded anything in Guild Wars 2 with a view to actually publishing the footage. After the NDA eventually lifted I never felt there was much value in me recording (considering everyone was). But with the addition of tournament play, I've found watching my videos back the best method of improving my play. I've regularly found myself after a match shaking my head at the number of things I did wrong. Thankfully, it can't be too much as I can't remember the last tournament match we lost!
Below are three videos from the last stress test, beginning with Foefire and Khylo with the tournament eventually ending in Niflhel. As the third video has only just uploaded it might be a few minutes until the 720p version becomes available.
I still consider Mesmers one of the most powerful professions in Guild Wars 2 and I'm always amazed to hear people actually saying they are underpowered. The build I use for Mesmer counts entirely on vigor, shattering as well as stealth and stun breaks to survive. With a default of 916 toughness, it's all about mobility and using your illusions to inundate your opponent. You can find my build here.
Be sure to let me know what you think!
