Condition Ambush Mirage Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. Condition Ambush Mirage Roaming Build. Mesmer World vs World.


Last Update: June 2024


The Condition Ambush Mirage makes use of the synergy between Infinite Horizon and Deceptive Evasion to keep creating clones that will overwhelm your enemies with their Mirage Cloak Ambush attacks.

The alacrity gained from the staff ambush will also allow more of the skills that create mirage cloak and therefore more alacrity. While the build does great sustained and safe damage, it can be hard to secure kills.

Synergy

The more your staff ambush occurs, the more alacrity you gain, fueling many of your abilities that can allow more staff ambushes. Essentially permanent alacrity helps to spam out more damage and sustain. However using the scepter ambush is faster and more aggressive to keep pressure on your target.

Playstyle

Besides the dodges, the build depends on Prismatic Understanding to survive, with many sources of stealth to disengage and gain boons. While you don’t have much cleanse abilities, the traits Illusionary Membrane and Renewing Oasis will suffice to buy time for your Cleansing Sigil on swap and disengage.

Stick to staff and spam dodge and ambush, all skills in staff have reduced cooldown so use them when feel necessary. Scepter is good to pressure but a passive playstyle with staff is more rewarding. The shatters are mostly for survival, or if you need to interrupt with F3. You can use F2 for confusion if you are ready to summon new clones, but it is more important to keep clones up rather than shatter.

Since it uses double energy sigil, remember to dodge and quickly swap weapons to use the ambush and refill the endurance bar at the same time.

  1. fun fact if you swap out the scepter for sword you have a really mobile build that is a pain to kill

  2. I’m not one to comment on builds but this one deserves it. I made some modifications, trailblazer by celestial and mass inv by moa (personal choice). hard to be killed in 1v1, absurd sustain and constant damage. GJ Jen! ty for share.

  3. Is the choice between Traveler or Perplexity runes simply one of mobility vs extra condi damage? Lovely build btw, ty.

  4. What Ascended Food would be a good equivalent and or substitute if any instead of the one given? Thanks for any reply

    • None, theres no ascended food with endurance regen, but if you really want an alternative, any with condition damage.

    • dodge food is unironically better than any ascended food, dodging is just way too useful for many reasons

  5. Been relying on your content since I started playing around 9 months ago. Amazing content. Loving the Mesmer and what you’ve proven they can do. Cheers -Toaster

  6. Does this BUILD (a year ago) still work? Is there anything that needs to be changed?

  7. May I ask how to change the BUILD if the scepter is replaced by an axe?

  8. can Superior Rune of Tormenting Work? since it grants regen and synergizes with Chaos traitline.
