In PvE, the recharge time of your Mesmer Spells is reduced by 33%.
Template code

Optional Optional skill, necessary against Skeletons of Dhuum.

  • Summon Ruby Djinn Summon Ruby Djinn  : Cast the summon, protect it by healing yourself.
  • Empathy Empathy  : Strafe and/or use the terrain (line of sight) to your advantage.
  • Light of Deldrimor Light of Deldrimor  : Holy damage burst. Less safe than the other two options.




  • A one-handed weapon with energy +5 and a mod of Enchanting.
  • A shield with a +10 vs Earth inscription and a Fortitude mod is the most optimal here. Other shields can also be considered, you have some leeway here.


Ice Wastes, detailed.

The Chamber / The Labyrinth

  • Use your team of heroes to clear the path to the Ice Wastes. A regular meta team like Mesmerway will easily dispatch foes on the way.
  • Stay behind when facing Aatxes, you don't want Death Penalty when facing Smites.

Smite Crawlers

  • Aggro multiple Smite groups at the same time if possible as the build is very safe.
  • Before aggroing, cast Mantra of Earth, Signet of Illusions, Stone Striker, Stoneflesh Aura.
  • With all the Smites on you, cast Sympathetic Visage then quickly cast multiple SoI-boosted Wastrel's Demises, switching targets after each cast.
  • If facing a small group, recast those skills a second time.
  • The Smite group will die in a few seconds. Repeat the same procedure for every Smite Crawler group in the Ice Wastes.

Skeletons of Dhuum

  • Before engaging a Skeleton, check for problematic patrols which could disturb you. If everything is all clear, proceed.
  • Spam Wastrel's Demise and Ether Feast. Both must be always boosted by Signet of Illusions.
  • Use your Optional Optional skill to dispatch the Skeleton.
  • The Skeleton will quickly die.


  • Feel free to study the little patrol map on the "Usage" section to familiarize yourself with the Ice Wastes.
  • Never aggro Coldfire Nights. Learning their patrols is a key part of Smite Crawler farming.
