Mesmer is difficult for someone that doesn't understand how things work, and even *more* difficult to solo at low levels compared to other professions.

As far as profession mechanics coupled with survivability-to-DPS ratios go, I'd put Warrior as the most newbie friendly profession. Mesmer is near the bottom of that list.
If you're looking to play something sneaky, Thief is more newbie friendly than Mesmer. If you're looking for a pet master type, Ranger or Necromancer is more newbie friendly than Mesmer. If you're looking for a caster type, Elementalist and Necromancer are more newbie friendly than Mesmer.

no matter what game he's in or role he has.
Duos says: I've read the archives... and Shadow frankly scares the bejeesus outta me. It's like playing with a
hypothetical cross of Lex Luthor and professor Moriarty.
If he was made of SPIDERS.
