GW2. WvW Build. Power Ambush Mirage Roaming Build. Mirage. Mesmer World vs World.
Last Update: October 2023
Power Mirage is a WvW roaming mesmer build that utilizes dodges, mobility, and invulnerability to avoid damage while being a glass cannon. This build is versatile with its ability to lock down single targets with the Sword and Pistol but also can switch gears into dealing massive AoE damage from range with the Greatsword. As opposed to the typical burst power mesmer builds, this one specializes in sustained damage over time, but still has some decent burst damage.
Distortion allows the use of ambushes, and every signet grants distortion, allowing many ambushes for great mobility when using the Sword Ambush (1) to leap multiple times in a row. Create Mirage Mirrors by using Distortion with many clones up, which can be used to give you Mirage Cloak (this is essentially a dodge). Chain these in a sequence to also trigger your clone ambushes due to the Infinite Horzion trait for heavy and consistent pressure.
Your skill rotation revolves around this sequence:
Create Clones > Use Ambushes > Shatter Clones > Repeat
Create clones with Pistol 4/Greatsword 4 then dodge to trigger your and your clone’s ambush attacks from Infinite Horizon, then shatter. Use F3 for daze if your opponent isn’t pressuring you much, but use F4 Distortion if they are pressuring you, and use F1 for damage if you feel like your enemies are out of cooldowns to avoid the shatter or you have a CC to follow through on.
There is much more clone generation on sword, so be sure to shatter more often there, while greatsword gets more value out of not shattering and letting the greatsword clones use Split Surge. Try to create more clones before walking into (and therefore triggering the dodge from) the Mirage Mirrors from your Distortion shatter. Distortion only allows you to use Ambushes, but Mirage Mirrors will make your clones Ambush as well. After pressuring cooldowns and you find an opening or land a good pistol 5, you can go for the typical greatsword burst: Greatsword 2 > 3 > F1
