These DoA tactics are designed to run 5 mesmers in a casual environment, omitting the monk seeder for more spiking power. It is not recommended for inexperienced players.

Tactics specific to 5 Mesmer Tactics

  • TT balls the Dryder group in 4'th room, and the team pushes to the far corner while killing it.
  • TK Takes 1st Snake, VoR takes 2nd.
  • Memo pings for Snakes, but Emo takes the reward.
  • EoE is placed twice in city for both balls. This may sometimes result in the VoR being late for the second spike. Other mesmers should still start the spike.
  • Emo takes the quest reward in city, after being recalled by the MT.
  • On 360, Emo walls waves 1, 2 and 5; TT walls wave 3 and 4; IAU walls wave 6.
  • MT walls clover if possible.
  • Memo helps with offdamage at 360.
  • Memo splits off with the MT after clover to help pull necro lord.
  • Memo can kill the MLK tendril, if the MLK is busy.
  • IAU goes to cap rift.
  • Mesmers should kill the last two spawns of the cave quest in order to speed up the ball.

Optionals

Tanks

  • Dark Escape on TT.
  • Dash on MT.

VoR

MLK

Memo

Pros

  • The teambuild is capable of a very fast casual run. The extra spiker makes it easier for experienced teams to achieve fast times.
  • Everyone has a Shadow step, which makes transitions faster and easier.

Cons

  • The builds require experienced players on almost every role.
  • No UA or Seed of Life means players are punished harder for mistakes.
  • The MT needs to be able to do Jadoth and Ranger without seed.
  • EoE on VoR means they will be late for some spikes.
