There's been quite a few people requesting my build as I'm usually one of the last to die and always the first to engage. This spec may not kill much but it empowers your allies to do a lot of killing fast. It's focused on surviving the first 10 seconds of an engagement and is highly recommended for any mesmers wanting to lead in WvW.

Neat, that's a crazy build.  It is excellent proof of what I always preach about how builds aren't made on paper, they're made by the player's needs and play-style and that what works best for one player may not work well for another.  We've all seen Fog pull off some crazy magic with that toon.

Question for Fog: I've always assumed that you used Temporal Enchanter in Inspirations line for your portal/null/feedback timers.  Is it not that useful in a large group w/other mesmers?  I think I have it in Nelfaar's, so if its not of much use I can swap it for something more useful.

Also, how is Confusion in WvW now?  I remember they nerfed it, but can't recall how badly.  Nelfaar is built around Crit DD + Confusion, so wondering if I have to rebuild her.

Fog, I just power leveled my mesmer to 80, so am looking at suggestions.  I'm only seeing weapons and skills on that link.  Is there a way to view armor and traits?

@Greywolf Just above the image of the mesmer are 3 icons. The second icon will
show traits and the third armor/accessories.
