I'm thinking about trying out a PvP Anti-Caster Water/Me build, and, thus far, I think I have the fundamentals down... but other than that, I honestly don't know. The build focuses on Caster total lockdown with possible support in Ward Again Harm, not the single-target that the Mesmer specializes in... So I'm thinking about something like this.
Glyph of Energy/Ward Again Harm/Water Trident (???)
Wondering if it's possible to Arcane Echo Maelstrom, and use the combination of Deep Freeze and Ice Spikes to keep my foes locked down inside of the chained Maelstroms. I'm not the biggest fan of having both of those, but I need the AoE slows to maintain my Maelstrom lockdown.
As you can see, I don't know what to take as my Elite power. The build obviously has energy issues, and the spam-casting of Maelstrom will cause multiple instances of Exhaustion to work around if I don't bring in Glyph of Energy. Water Trident might be nice for keeping the Healer locked down inside the Maelstrom, but I'm hoping the slow will do that for me.
On the flip side, since I have nothing else to offer a team besides Anti-Caster support, it might be best to bring Ward Against Harm, to allow myself a slighly more variable play style.
Anyone got anything to comment on this?
