"Dancing through the battlefield, swift as a fleeting memory."
Swift and ruthless, Dueling enhances your phantasm's damage output as well as your overall critical hit capability. Dodge your enemies with ease and gain additional bonuses after successfully evading attacks.
— In-game description
Dueling is a core specialization of the mesmer that focuses on enhancing dodging, interrupts and improving your phantasms' damage.
