Can't decide.... either Mesmer or thief.... or go with a warrior.... always did love a charge!

A lot of people that I talk to don't like the Mesmer for PvE as of this time, they seem very unbalanced ( on the weaker side for PvE, they're pretty good in PvP) and the thief i've heard has an extremely fun playstyle. It never hurts to make a character then hop into sPvP to check out the full potential of a class though.

This. I have a lot of fun playing Mesmer in sPvP and tournaments but it gets pretty boring in PvE. They great for controlling, doing good burst and getting out. I mean, you'll rarely die in PvE but you don't have much in terms of AoE.

Sounds like they both could be fun to play.

Either I'll finish up my badges of honor and karma to make my
legendary weapon... just a game goal. It won't be much better then what I already have.... if at all.. parting the visionary effects and footprints... or I'll put the legendary on hold and start another character as others have done. (Berserkers Pearl Quarterstaff of fire).

where would this new character be played? wvw, s/tpvp or pve or a mixture of them all? Out of them three if you want strongest/most OP you MUST go Thief. Mesmer isnt a melee class. It uses the Gsword but uses it as Range so that doesnt really count. So if you are really wanting a Melee class Mesmer isnt really that much of a choice. I play my Ele as a Melee character - Dual Daggers in a Air/Earth build just kicks ass- so much speed and great abilities. Kinda like a Magic Thief lol

Mesmer can be melee. Sword/Sword, Sword/Pistol, pretty much Sword/whatever. Sword/Pistol is great.
I use Sword/Pistol is good for burst.
Staff is good for condition builds.

Thats true, but they arent that good as melee. They are far more suited to Range in my opinion. Though i got mine to lvl 80 and got bored Though i love facing them in S/TPvp on my Air/Earth Ele its so easy to fight them most of the time as they mostly go with the same spec and using predictable attacks so rarely see them as a threat.

Out of Thief, Mesmer and Warrior Mesmer is the WORST at Melee

PvE and WvW is where I have fun. As a elementalist, it has taken me time to make changes to my
character so I can still hit hard and not die too easy. Playing a support role is not as bad as I thought
it would be... but I miss the option to play the front line.

Throw on daggers, build up vitality and healing power and you're good to go! Oh and condition dmg, that'll help you last for quite a while in WvW near the front lines against other players, going up against a fort...not so much.

hey guys, I am currently playing on the tarnished coast server. And i have run into a problem during my personal story, I am currently lvl 61 and in the Bloodtide Coast zone.... Has anyone else encountered the quest "Shards of Or" to be bugged where the boss "Herboza the wrethched" doesnt appear?

Also, in this zone, the heart quest for the island in the middle of the zone at Merchantman's Strait, anyone run into this being bugged as well? It's the only thing keeping me from getting 100% in this zone.

My main is a Ele. My build that i run is 10/30/30/0/0 with high toughness and taking speed buffs i run with Dual Daggers in open combat in Air for the speed buffs. Start with RTL and then into the knockdown can be deadly against groups. When attacking or defending forts i switch to fire and go Earth and using the the AoE spell that fires rock outwards - standing behind a gate defending it and casting the AoE on the gate is killer for the melee attackers lol
