Virtuoso Virtuoso


  • Heals the mesmer and 4 allies near the mesmer each time a clone or phantasm is created. Clones that appear from phantasms will also trigger the heal.
    • This means Chronophantasma Chronophantasma can cause a single phantasm to active this trait 3 times.
    • Stacks with  Signet of the Ether.png Signet of the Ether; so they both activate per illusion created, though only Illusionary Inspiration will heal allies.
