Condition Quickness Chronomancer Build

GW2. Raid Build. Condition Quickness Chronomancer. Mesmer PvE 2022.

Last Update: October 10


Quickness Variant


Overview

The Condition Quickness Chronomancer is a more aggressive version of the tank mesmer build which still gives Quickness and some Aegis to allies; but is favorable for condition fights or when tanking a boss that has high attack speed, allowing great value on the Confusion it stacks up.

Playstyle

Role: Tank DPS

Always open with Scepter/Shield to gain clones fast, then perform the Continuum Split combo:

Continuum Split Burst: 2/3 Clones > Tides of Time + Continuum Split > Swap to Pistol > Time Warp > Mirror Images + Rewinder > (Use all shatters during Continuum Split) > Pistol 4 > Signet of the Ether > Pistol 4 > Leave Continuum Rift > Repeat from Mirror Images.

Always use Pistol 4 off cooldown. Use Scepter auto chain and the Scepter 2 when you can reliably block an attack to gain clones and always prioritize using Tides of Time and shattering F2 Rewinder at 3 clones when on top of your party to give them quickness. Use Scepter 3 when at maximum clones but waiting to shatter.

CC: Pistol 5, Shield 5, F3, Signet of Domination, Signet of Humility/Gravity Well

Gameplay


DPS Variant


While the quickness variant of the build is great damage, sometimes your team does not need a tank for the fight or already has enough quickness, making the shield and quickness trait unnecessary. This version of the Condition Chronomancer prioritizes only dealing damage so it uses a Torch.

When Continuum Rift is almost up, save your F2, Signet of the Ether (Heal Skill), Mirror Images, and one of your phantasms.

Continuum Rift Burst Order:

  • Auto attack to 2/3 clones
  • Continuum Rift + Pistol 4 (or Torch 5)
  • Signet of the Ether + Mirror Images + F2
  • Pistol 4
  • Leave Continuum Rift and repeat
  • Pistol 4
  • Signet of the Ether + Mirror Images + F2
  • Pistol 4

Skill Priority:

When continuum rift is on cooldown, prioritize swapping weapon off cooldown and using 4 and 5 in both weapon sets. Only use F2 while at three clones, so auto attack (or use mirror images) to get there, but if F2 is on cooldown by the time you get to three clones, use Scepter 3. Use Scepter 2 when you can block an attack for faster clone generation and extra damage.
