When the description of an enchantment states:
"When the enchantment ends, <<this and that happens>> ..."
- does that mean, if the enchantment is broken by another skill like "Smite enchantment" (cast by enemy) or "Contemplation of purity" (cast by self), <<this and that>> happens anyway ??? Or is the "End-effect" also broken?

If Illusion of Weakness is shattered then you get the heal. The same seems to be the case with Blood Renewal and Aura of the Lich.

And how is it with Wastrels Worry? It states that enemy suffers damage after 3 seconds. If he uses a skill, WW ends prematurely. Does that mean, he prevents the damage by using a skill or does he just take the damage earlier?

And what if WW is shattered before 3 secs? Does that prevent the damage or will he just suffer earlier?

Wastrel's damage is dealt when the skill ends after 3 seconds. If it ends before, the damage isn't dealt. So if the target uses a skill (using a skill ends Wastrel's) or if the hex is removed before the 3 second timer is up, no damage is dealt.

And an enchantment or stance is ended when it is either removed, if you recast it, or if it ends due to a duration or a special condition. Recasting Battle Rage for instance still causes you to lose all of your adrenaline, it just resets the timer.

Wastrel's Worry does deal damage if the target uses a skill before the timer is up. At least that's how it works when the Avicara mesmers use it.

If that was the case, then every Mesmer would be using it as it would be around a 50 damage skill every 3 seconds, or basically a -8 hp pip skill. But I'm pretty sure you're mistaken (no offense meant of course).

If u havent checked it out urself, Im pretty sure that it will do damage!

Because its what mesmers do typically. They try to prevent you from using your skills.

And I guess damage is so high, because it deals damage after 3 seconds and it can be broken before that.

If thats the case, then it is a pretty good spell!
Otherwise its crap, because it would be to easy to prevent the damage. 3 seconds are a very long time, even if u mess with a mesmer... ;)
