i enjoy using illusions and shattering them, and i mainly like to do PvE and dungeons, right now i feel im very underwhelming but not sure what to cut out, im thinking of switching my weapons around but unsure what weapon sets would work.
So basicly im wanting to do good solid damage without being to squishy, while using clones actively. mostly i can not decide on a weapon combination.
Your current build is to focused on survivability. There is no synergy with the trait choices and you have no way of dealing with ranged. (which is what mesmers do extremely well)
The boost from greatsword training or chaotic dampening (the staff recharge) is not terribly significant.
You need to decide are you going for a more DPS orientated build or are you going for condition based damage and trait accordingly.
If you plan on doing shatter based damage you need the dueling line of traits : critical infusion grants 1s of vigor on critical hits, and master trait deceptive evasion which generates a clone on dodge.
give this build a try: http://gw2skills.net/editor/?fgIQNAW...h6h2ldfXJF82FC
For weapon sets you can switch between GS or staff on primary depending on what you are doing (group/solo play) and ALWAYS have sword/focus as weapon switch. With the traits in that build your focus skills reflect projectiles. So with those 2 skills plus feedback and if needed you can switch heal to mirror for 4 different projectile reflection skills.
With that trait setup you should have no issues doing pve content and with the sword in the offhand you have the invulnerability from the blurred frenzy when you happen to be out of endurance and need to dodge a big attack.
