Feedback:User/Aquadrizzt/Skill rebalance/Mesmer

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This suggestion is part of my overarching Skill Rebalance Project. The one line summaries:

  • Fast Casting -- Affecting recharge or casting.
  • Domination Magic -- Primarily caster shutdown and punishment hexes.
  • Illusion Magic -- Martial shutdown and degeneration hexes.
  • Inspiration Magic -- Energy management, healing and protection.


Fast Casting[edit]

Each rank of Fast Casting decreases the activation time of your spells and signets by 4%. (Cannot reduce activation times of non-Mesmer skills below 1 second.) In PvE, each rank of Fast Casting also decreases recharge time for your signets and Mesmer spells by 3%.
