Related skills[edit]


  • Daze does not stack in duration. If multiple illusions are targeting a single opponent, the actual duration of daze depends on when each illusion shatters. As a result of this, Diversion is strongest when using a mix of ranged and melee Clones, increasing the likelihood that some impact right away while others need to spend more than 1 second running to the target, causing yet another application.
  • The ½s daze causes 100 Defiance bar damage, the slow causes 50 Defiance bar damage per second for 2 seconds; the whole skill causes 200, 300, 450, or 600 total Defiance bar damage based on how many clones hit the target along with your personal shatter.

Patch Changes
July 07, 2020
  • Chronomancer shatter skills can now be activated without clones, and the shatter effect also occurs at the mesmer's location.
  • Reduced daze duration per hit from 1 second to 0.5 seconds.
July 16, 2019
  • Time Sink has been added to the game.
  • Shatter Skills: Mesmers who are using the chronomancer specialization now receive new shatters that replace the four core shatters. Chronomancer shatters require at least 1 clone to activate, and unlike core shatters they do not replicate the shatter effect on the mesmer.
    • Split Second: This skill replaces and inherits traits from Mind Wrack. This skill deals damage for each clone shattered with additional bonus damage when striking slowed foes.
    • Rewinder: This skill replaces and inherits traits from Cry of Frustration. This skill deals damage and inflicts confusion for each clone shattered. Additionally, it recharges itself by 5 seconds for each clone shattered.
    • Time Sink: This skill replaces and inherits traits from Diversion. This skill dazes foes and applies 2 seconds of slow for each clone shattered.
    • Continuum Shift: This skill now replaces distortion in the F4 slot instead of taking the F5 slot. Additionally, it applies 1 second of distortion when cast. Duration has been rescaled based on the number of clones to 3/4.5/6 seconds. This skill now specifies that it cannot be reset by other mesmer skills.
