My idea from 5 years back fits Mirage
So… dodge jaunt?
Well (IMHO) even though dodge mechanic converted into blink would be really cool I do not feel the same about 400 range elite skill.
400 range is greater than a dodge, so that’s basically what you’re talking about, tbh.
The thing is it needs to contain both options:
1. Pressing dodge key , simply blurs you in place with
2. Pressing dodge key while also pressing a directional key (forward/back/left/right) provides blur and executes a 200-300 range blink I’m the direction of movement. Also works with double tap to dodge.
Number 1 is really important to have, unlike normal dodge where if you just press the dodge key you will still dodge backwards. I personally enjoy the current design of Mirage dodge without moving and would not like to see that option disappear if a blink was added. Instead the above solution allows for both possibilities, movement and no movement dodge, which not only raises the skillcap but puts the choice firmly in the player’s hands as to how they want to dodge (move or not move while gaining Mirage Cloak).
I am all up for this.
What is important part – clearing you as the target – it will make clones reliable in PvP: if other player cannot say even for 1-2sec what is mesmer and what is clone it would be amazing. And this would allow for it…. at one second he is fighting one mesmer…. another second two mesmers are beating him with (hopefully boosetd/fixed) ambush attack. And with Cloak on clone he is not able to onehit clone. …. Soo many options….. AN pretty please?
