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, particularly on MT and emo.
Tactics specific to 5 Mesmer Tactics
- Trench Tank balls the Dryder group in 4'th room, and the team pushes to the far corner while killing it.
- VoR takes both 1st and 2nd snakes.
- Memo pings for Snakes, but Emo takes the reward.
- Edge of Extinction 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; Memo or MLK (whichever didn't pop tengus) provides the target for Recall trick.
- Mesmers should kill the last two spawns of the cave quest in order to speed up the ball.
- 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.
- 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 of Life.
- Emo is under a lot more pressure without enchantment support from the monk.
- Edge of Extinction on VoR means they will be late for some spikes.
