I looked at IW and my conclusion was based on the same logic as Herthbuls - it is a fragile/vunerable approach. That doesn't mean it can't work but it must be vunerable to skilled players. Obviously Arcane Echo makes it harder to counter and sometimes that is enough. However I wouldn't plan on being a world beater using a known, counterable, approach.
My first character, Ele/Mesmer, is approaching lvl 20 now and I'm wondering if some skill I've been using in pve will suffer form the same sort of problems as IW.
- Aura of Restoration is an incredible heal spell but a target for dispelling. Is it worth using in pvp?
With 20 seconds recharge time I often recast AoR after it is dispelled in pve.
- I have a W/El who intends to use Conjure Flames - how useful is this in pvp?
Conjure Flames has a 60sec recast time so it won't be recast any time to soon but then again it is just an add on not a central element.
Don't worry, be happy.
