Manipulation. Reflect projectiles, and heal yourself.

— In-game description


  • This skill will not go on full recharge until the healing portion of this skill occurs, meaning you can reflect projectiles on a fairly regular basis.
  • Since the reflect radius is the same as the player's hitbox, the mesmer can only reflect projectiles that directly collide with them. For this reason, projectiles that explode upon collision, such as Giganticus Lupicus's Necrid Bolt or grenades from Grenade Kit, can still damage the mesmer if they land nearby. They will only be reflected if they land directly on top of the mesmer.
