Talk:List of mesmer skills

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

There is quite a decent list of mes skills on this guru thread. lets start bringing them over. --Moto Saxon 21:47, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

I thought my first character would be a Warrior, looks like was wrong. OutlawJoe
So what was the source that placed Portal and Veil as weapon skills? I'm really hoping that they're utility... Mora 21:56, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
Bringing them over can only be done if there is a source to copy over along with the skills. - Infinite - talk 21:58, 14 December 2011 (UTC)
Has it been confirmed that they will use trident and spear for underwater? 01:19, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
Yes, it has been confirmed. | Corvus 12:26, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
Re-raising Mora's point. How do we know Veil is a weapon skill for the Scepter and not a utility skill, especially where Guru info gives the Scepter a different skill? Similarly, how do we know Mirror Image is a weapon skill for the focus and not a utility skill? As long as we're not sure (and I admit I don't know where Guru got their info- testing leaks, perhaps?), they shouldn't be listed that way. --Messenger 17:25, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
I added the few remaining weapon skill descriptions listed in the guru compendium to the "unknown skills" area. But like you say, idk where they got their info from, so just undo it if you like. Happy new years everybody! --Vassar 01:47, 1 January 2012 (UTC)

Portal Source Info for No Weapon[edit] Just past the middle of the page there 21:58, 14 December 2011 (UTC)

Veil, utility skill?[edit]

Just thought you should know that veil basically can't be a scepter skill. If you watch the skill video the charr puts his weapons away, then casts the spell before redrawing them. The weapon doesn't play a part in the animation, so that means it must be a utility skill. 02:21, 15 December 2011 (UTC)Arkham

I agree it definitely looks like a utility skill, could the person who place it there give the source of the info?. 03:53, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
Holy Dragons added it, he should have a reference. --Moto Saxon 05:56, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

Mantra of Pain[edit]

"Mantras—Mantras are a category of skill that have two phases. The mesmer first activates the mantra, which has a long cast time and replaces that skill slot with an instant-casting skill that the mesmer can then use. Mantras are powerful because many can be charged up before battle and then used in the middle of another spell, without interrupting that spell. For example, Mantra of Pain can charge up into an instant-damage power spike that can be used during a channeled spell, such as the greatsword skill." This should at least get a mention on the article page among the unclassified skills as the first known mantra skill. --Messenger 11:41, 15 December 2011 (UTC)

A charged Mantra of Pain, and using Mind Wrack to destroy 2 illusion allies might deal some nice damage.--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:OutlawJoe (talk).
Can it be assumed that mantras are all non-elite, general utility skills? Ecker 12:35, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
^ Except Mantra of Healing, which is confirmed to be in the healing slot. Ecker 13:01, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
No, as far as trying to be accurate and factual for wiki purposes is concerned. Besides, there's nothing stopping ANet from making a weapon skill Mantra or an elite Mantra. It's just a question of what it does and how it fits with the other skills. --Messenger 17:04, 16 December 2011 (UTC)

Explode is NOT a Pistol skill,[edit]

Explode cannot be a pistol skill because it's used while the Mesmer is wielding a staff in the Chaos Storm skill video. --Messenger 17:28, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

We know that skill is called Explode? rather than one that causes a bursting orb of purple. Adrian R 18:58, 20 December 2011 (UTC)
We know that it was actually a skill, and not just a random condition (burning) from Chaos Storm? 01:05, 25 December 2011 (UTC)

"Be A Chicken" elite[edit]

Any info on what foes this could work on, and what not? I'm assuming you can't simply use it on Tequatl for instance... 21:14, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Screenshots Leaked from the Beta[edit]

We got skill icons here. Sorry, no skill names or descriptions yet. --Messenger 09:31, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Skill Errors[edit]

  • Trick Shot links to Thief's Trick Shot.
  • Illusionary Whaler is classified as a Trident skill while its description says its a Harpoon Gun skill.

--Messenger 05:19, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

Trick Shot's been fixed while I misunderstood Illusionary Whaler. --Messenger 00:21, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

New Format[edit]

I love the new format (descriptions by the skills) but warrior and guardian are missing this--somebody fix this? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Mind Stab[edit]

It's screwing up. As to why, I have no clue. But we really need to get it fixed.--The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Negius (talk).

Arcane Thievery[edit]

I just spotted an unlisted skill in a video. It is moused over at 29:11 and was used a moment before with an explanation. Arcane Thievery: Manipulation. Send conditions on you to your foe and steal their boons. Range: 900. Recharge: 90. I'm no good with wiki-editing so I decided to link this here so maybe someone can add it. Thanks 19:12, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Colours are off.[edit]

I have noticed that the background colours of the focus skill descriptions are different. Not sure if this is meant or not. Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to change it if it's not. :P ~ ♥ Kailani! ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ 01:05, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, Mora! The 'issue' as been fixed. :D ~ ♥ Kailani! ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ 01:47, 23 April 2012 (UTC)

I am too stupid to fit this in[edit]

There is a typo[edit]

typo with the description of Phantasmal Disenchanter. I'd fix but i'm a wiki noob --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Skill descriptions are copied verbatim from in-game, including errors. That's what the little "[sic]" means. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 21:03, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

ah okay, thanks bro --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Historical: Teleport(downed).....where?[edit]

Where did it go? Can't find it in the historical skill list. It's like someone deleted it altogether rather than listing as historical. This is not fair. You might as well delete all pages of unimplement content in this case. -Wrei110.175.241.56 07:10, 28 July 2012 (UTC)

It's now Shadow Escape. —Dr Ishmael User Dr ishmael Diablo the chicken.png 13:43, 28 July 2012 (UTC)


I am 100% sure there is a healing skill missing. Yes4me 17:38, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

It's likely a racial healing skill. --JonTheMon 17:41, 4 December 2012 (UTC)
yes you are right. I just realize that now. Yes4me 18:06, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Feedback 2018/06/16[edit]

Where are the skills for axes and shields? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 08:24, 16 June 2018‎ (UTC).

You're looking for the two links at the top of the page. List of chronomancer skills for the shield. List of mirage skills for the axe. G R E E N E R 08:29, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
