I have created this handy field guide for non-mesmers who wish to identify mesmers on the battlefield. Basically, if you see what you think is a mesmer and she’s valiantly casting, she’s a clone. If she’s frantically dodging, she’s the real deal!
So Clovis Snaregrin joined the Nightmare Court, reckoning that the unparalleled fashion sense was worth some prerequisite animal cruelty. Plus, after The Incident With The Cats In Beetletun, she was halfway there already.
Seriously, though, this armor is the only reason to get a light armor class character to level 80. It even looks great with Clovis’s preferred color scheme (annoying purple and orange. MESMERS).
