Glamour. Create an entry portal at your location that teleports allies to your exit portal.
(Creating a new entrance portal while you have an active portal will destroy the active portal.)

— In-game description


The portals are indestructible, untargetable objects which can teleport any allied players up to 20 times when interacted with either portal. The distance between two portals is restricted to 5,000 in PvE/WvW and 6,000 in SPvP.

After creating the initial portal with Portal Entre, the mesmer gains Portal Entre.png Portal Weaving effect and has 60 seconds to activate  Portal Exeunt.png Portal Exeunt, which lasts 10 seconds after a short activation delay. Recharge time for Portal Entre begins upon activation, and it resets to full recharge when the Portal Exeunt is used. Portals become brightly lit when they can be interacted with. Skill  Mimic.png Mimic can be used to reset the recharge.

This skill is frequently used to bypass jumping puzzles when the reward chest's area overlooks the ground. After the Mesmer gets to the reward chest (possibly by legitimately completing the JP), they can cast Portal Entre at their location, drop/glide down to the ground, then cast Portal Exeunt and use it to teleport themselves and others back up to the reward chest.

Along with the Prototype Position Rewinder item and Thief's Shadow Portal skill, Mesmer's Portal can also be used to reverse a mistake in jumping puzzles. Before attempting a tricky jump, Portal Entre can be cast at the Mesmer's location. If the jump is missed and the Mesmer falls, but survives, they can cast Portal Exeunt where they land and teleport back to their previous location.
