GW2. WvW Build. Condition Ambush Mirage Roaming Build. Mesmer World vs World 2023.
Last Update: Feb 2023
The Condition Ambush Mirage makes use of the synergy between Infinite Horizon, Desert Distortion, and Blurred Inscriptions to make use of the spammability of the staff and scepter ambush skills. 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.
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.
Stick to staff and alternate between dodging and ambushing or distorting from signets and ambushing. Scepter is good to pressure but a passive playstyle with staff is more rewarding. The shatters are mostly survival as cleanse or boons, but make sure to always use your F2 off cooldown for confusion and Vigor.
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.

Chat Code: (copy/paste into in-game chat)
fun fact if you swap out the scepter for sword you have a really mobile build that is a pain to kill
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.
Is the choice between Traveler or Perplexity runes simply one of mobility vs extra condi damage? Lovely build btw, ty.
Yes, I personally prefer mobility
Would Fireworks runes be good for this as well?
It can work yes, but traveler better for condi
