The PvXwiki community finds this to be a good build.

This build has received an overall rating in the range from 3.75 to < 4.75 and thus qualifies for the lower category of working builds: Good.

This build has been designed for the following use:

This build combines mesmer shutdown and energy management with restoration magic. It's a good choice when you not only lack healing, but also shutdown. Although the energy management is usually worse than a necromancer healer's that's compensated by the additional shutdown and thus reduced need of healing.

Attributes and Skills

You activate Spells and Signets 46% faster. (No effect for non-Mesmer skills with a cast time less than 2 seconds.)
In PvE, the recharge time of your Mesmer Spells is reduced by 39%.
