Default Enc Spell Bar

My 56 enc has been shelved for a good bit now. I wanted to get his cha near maxed before I started him again, and I've managed to get 254 self buffed (+50 cha).

Coming back to him now, I was wondering if I could get some help on my spell bar in different scenarios.

-Solo

-Duo

-Group

Can I safely assume to leave lowest level mez, tash, and PE on my bar in all cases? What about AE mez? How many AE stuns should I have loaded? If fighting mana mobs always have mana tap loaded? Boon? I figure I need to grab gob ring for solo as well.

Thank you much - I'm really looking forward to playing him again!

I'm no chanter but I'm working on an enchanter and have been trying to get as much advice as I can. One enchanter I spoke to said he does his spell bar in the following way, starting with slot 1: mez, root, stun, stun, charm, swap, aoe mez, theft of thought. In the swap gem slot by default would be tash, and he swaps that out for c2, slow, etc as the situation requires. He didn't specify which situation this was for, but called it "his setup" so I would imagine it's versatile.

Get used to spell slot 1 for swap. Itís the most efficient, and as you get more advanced you will need to use it more. The rest are mostly preference. There are some philosophical decisions (one stun or two, which mez, etc) but after some personal preference it really becomes a situational decision.

As a 60 enc who mostly solos and duos, I run with:

1. Swap
2. Color Flux
3. Color Shift
4. Mesmerize
5. Mesmerization
6. Fetter
7. Blanket of Forgetfulness
8. Theft of Thought

My swaps are typically: Allure, Tash, Bedlam, Rune, Slow, C2, etc.

For warrior-type mobs I will swap out ToT for Boltran's. For level 51+ summoning mobs I swap out Blanket for Boltran's.

Could you expand on why slot 1 is the best for swap? I figured lvl 4 mez was a good candidate for slot 1 because of breaking global cooldown. Or is that why I want slot 1 to be swap?

You can reduce the time on a swap by its cast time with a slot 1 swap. The reduction in GCR is great, but if youíre going to do that while leveling (like I did), Iíd recommend root, which I cast WAY more than single target mez.

Nowadays I usually load out as slot 1 as a swap, but not always. It depends a lot on what Iím doing. The only real staples for me are #4-5 are stun and #6 is ToT when I have it up.

I had my top slot as root for most of my leveling, too. It worked really well when you sent your pet into a room with several mobs, backed it out, AoE mezed the group, and were able to get each one rooted before mez wore off.

Then again, I also did not have Blanket or ToT, so I had Tash and Slow memed most of the time, which greatly reduced the amount of Swapping I was doing.
