Shattering illusions creates the shatter effect on you as well.

— In-game description


  • Illusionary Persona causes the user to count as an illusion for the mesmer's shatter mechanic. The illusion is counted on top of the number of active illusions, which is a maximum of three. This means shatter skills can be used even when no illusions are up.
  • Due to how Mind Wrack scales depending on the number of active illusions, each illusion will inflict more damage with fewer active:
Illusions Damage dealt by Mind Wrack
Without trait With trait
0 - 135 (~49%)
1 135 (~49%) 270 (~99%)
2 206 (~75.46%) 309 (~113%)
3 273 (~100%) 364 (~133%)
  • Note that the player counts as one illusion with the trait and damage inflicted per illusion is the same for one or no active illusions. Damage per active illusion is 135, 103, and 94 for 1, 2, and 3 illusions respectively. 100% of the damage is dealt with three active illusions without the trait.
