First of all, I really hope I don't meet your Mesmer :P

Second, would you rule out Mesmer Runes to prolong the Dazes?

Congratz on what looks to me to be a first class build.

Mesmer runes daze duration is broken or I would consider them, this build is great against squishes target but the staff greatsword build is stronger vs tankier or melee targets.

Also, ty for the compliment, and yes the build is amazing =P
