1. Strengths

  • Really good CC through Signet of Humility

2. Weaknesses

  • The DPS is a bit low compared to other condi classes
  • Has a huge ramp up time due to the new trait Phantasmal Force

3. Current Viability

With the August 8, 2017 Balance Patch Condi Mesmer received a huge buff from reworked traits. The traits got reworked to the following functionality:

  • : Phantasms gain a 1% damage boost whenever might is applied to them, and a 4% damage boost whenever they attack (maximum bonus 25%). This bonus damage lasts until the phantasm is destroyed.
  • :  Increases critical-hit damage by 15%. This bonus is further increased to 25% against foes below 50% health or foes who become disabled by stun, daze, taunt, fear, knockdown, etc.

These changes boosted Condi Mesmer DPS a bit.
