In conjunction with something like Distortion, this would be fun to watch, especially one-on-one. :P -Gares 09:58, 22 September 2006 (CDT)

Better yet, add in Return or Recall and screw over someone's day. --8765 13:51, 22 September 2006 (CDT)
That could work, but if you use something like Clumsiness or Blinding Flash then you would get a chance to run away and you wouldn't have to have Assassin as secondary Gimmethegepgun 19:19, 23 September 2006 (CDT)

I'm surprised nobody's thought of this yet, but this could help to stop touch rangers by slowing down their touches, if only for a second or two each. They're already in touch range (if targeting you), and usually aren't attacking. Which leads me to wonder if this stacks with Diversion...Arshay Duskbrow 00:13, 24 September 2006 (CDT)

Could be great against GvG monks who only brought +enchant swords and no wands! -Flypaper

I agree with Gordon. Appropriate reference made. --Zinger314 22:08, 25 September 2006 (CDT)

Heh, I'm rly tempted to one day change the description to "This skill ends if someone hits on you." (Not a fifty five 15:29, 26 September 2006 (CDT))

To me this feels like it's better at stopping touchers than the "Can't Touch This!" skill.

  • shrug* I don't like it actually. it should prolly be changed to "hits in melee" cause all you'd do is whip out a wand O.O (Not a fifty five 19:07, 26 September 2006 (CDT))

What gives with the stupid WoW comment about stripping NE's? :/ Finrod 02:46, 29 September 2006 (CDT)
Because ArenaNet apparently has a sense of humor, Finrod. --Zinger314 15:33, 29 September 2006 (CDT)
I see no connection between ArenaNet and the Trivia section on some articles on guildwiki. That section was probably edited by someone who does not work for ANet, Zinger.
True, but guildwiki doesn't choose the artwork for skills now do they? (Ocelot never 06:34, 10 October 2006 (CDT))

Something else too, this could really be devastating against monks. Of course they'll probably remove it quickly, but if this triggers before the removal, their hex removal skill will be disabled for a while too. But obviously we don't know if that's the case. Arshay Duskbrow 15:49, 29 September 2006 (CDT)

I meant that the reference to WoW indicates that ArenaNet has a sense of humor, Mr. Anonymous. And yes, I was the one who made that edit. --Zinger314 17:03, 1 October 2006 (CDT)

Cant wait to see when people get tease placed on them and then desperately try to hit the caster. Such fun ^_^ Specialy with a shadowstep skill such as Shadow of Haste Touch them just as it expires then watch them chase across the map after you. ~ Zero rogue x 23:14, 3 October 2006 (CDT)

I am buying NightFall just to use this skill in RA/AB/ect. -- 22:30, 5 December 2006 (CST)

Does using Blackout after Tease increase blackout's disabling duration?

You use blackout, the target doesn't. So no, the two do not interact. -- Xeon 03:40, 6 January 2007 (CST) scrap that, read the description wrong. -- Xeon 03:41, 6 January 2007 (CST)
Depends, but probably not. If a skill's current time left to recharge is longer than blackout's disable, nothing happens to that skill. If the time left to recharge is shorter, then that time is reset to blackout's disable time. --Fyren 03:54, 6 January 2007 (CST)
Umm fyren huh? Anyway i just noticed in the tease description Skills used by target touched foe. Blackout will not activate the skill, it will just cause it to recharge, so no, tease wont extend the duration of the blackout on the target foe. -- Xeon 04:01, 6 January 2007 (CST)
I assumed he meant using blackout while something was already recharging. --Fyren 06:53, 6 January 2007 (CST)

Perhaps the original intention of this spell was to put the target into a situation where if they did not have hex removal, they would either A)Have to endure the extended recharge on skills or B)Have to attack the mesmer even if the target was hexed with skills like clumsiness.--RedFeather 10:20, 8 January 2007 (CST)

I've always considered the build of the boss that possesses the elite would give some idea of how it's supposed to be used. See Makdeh the Aggravating. Makdeh and you are both on the right track, but losing 5 energy is trivial to a caster compared to increased recharge, not to mention Clumsiness wears off after one hit. --Ufelder 10:26, 8 January 2007 (CST)


Am I the only one thinking this should be in Domination instead? It doesn't fit the Inspiration line at all. --Theeth Assassin (talk) 12:56, 1 October 2006 (CDT)

I dunno, I think a stripper is pretty inspiring ^.^ (Not a fifty five 18:34, 1 October 2006 (CDT))

I disagree about the strippers. If anything this should be illusion.-Onlyashadow 09:54, 2 October 2006 (CDT)

It's a powered up version of Diversion. But anyhow, it's Inspiration now and I doubt Anet will ever change it. --Theeth Assassin (talk) 17:19, 2 October 2006 (CDT)
They generally categorise the skills based on their concept and effect rather than its similarities with other skills in different attribute lines. IMO, you're not dominating someone just because you can distract their skills for a period of time, and its not illusive because teasing someone can damage them emotionally, which is what this skill implies. Think of bullies, they arent domineering, you just have to see around them, and not through them. (Terra Xin 09:50, 6 October 2006 (CDT))

This isn't that effective on monks actually, unless you score it on something like MoR. I mean making RoF take not even 2 seconds longer to recharge? Weak. It's more effective on mesmers and necros who suffer from spells bearing much longer recharges. Just my 2 cents, even if they are negative. Diversion is still a much better choice for monk disruption. Kamahl 17:30, 4 October 2006 (CDT)

The reason Tease isn't in Illusion is because of Mantra of Persistence. --Zinger314 23:05, 13 October 2006 (CDT)

This seems like an interesting skill to use in PvP, if you can avoid attacks. Seems a few Mesmer skills like to get into the fray, like Signet of Midnight. DancingZombies Aura of the Lich.jpg 18:06, 23 October 2006 (CDT)


TBH I'm much more worried about seeing this in PvE situations. If ANet creates a group of six monster mesmers and I have to wand them ALL to find out which sucker put Tease on me I am going to be very cheesed off. Kessel 10:03, 6 October 2006 (CDT)

Lol, well if that's the case, then Anet has done their job :P (Terra Xin 05:21, 11 October 2006 (CDT))

I guess pacifism would combo pretty well with this ^^ make a nice cover too--Blade 11:22, 6 October 2006 (CDT)

Lol yeah rly, I can just see it now, tease imps >.< (Not a fifty five 13:34, 10 October 2006 (CDT))


What happens if the caster dies? the hexed foe cant hit him anymore..

The same thing that happens for Life Siphon, Life Transfer, Parasitic Bond, Insidious Parasite and Spirit of Failure. Considering those all end once they are out of maintainment range or when you die, this might too.

Tease needs a buff. Perhaps change it to a skill, rather than a hex. Increase the cd a bit. Essentially, it should not be able to be removed (for X duration) unless you hit the tease user. --8765 01:03, 17 February 2007 (CST)

RE: Trivia.[]

Copyright infringement would be a concern if the skill was meant to be a WoW Night Elf. GrammarNazi 14:38, 25 March 2007 (CDT)

Not really. You can't copyright the idea of "elf". Making a claim like that would only happen if Blizzard shot all their lawyers and replaced them with pot-plants. :P. It's just another in-joke. 14:37, 4 May 2007 (CDT)

Needs a buff[]

This skill might seem impressive at first, "Whoah, 100% longer at high attibutes!" but 100% longer hardly damages most builds, especialy not if the hex has both:

A) A Touch range, very annoying and dangerous to do, and B) A build in self remover, which synergizes with the touch range as well as Frenzy and Healing Signet synergize.

I reccomend that effect should either be doubeled, or removed from Touch range. Zulu Inuoe -Signed incorrectly

Still too weak. It should be a touch skill, not a hex. --8765 14:46, 5 April 2007 (CDT)

I think the Spell needs to be reworked completely. Since it is in Inspiration Magic, making it effect Spells only and Energy related would be nice(i.e. on Inspiration 15, Spells require 100% more Energy to activate) But i guess that would be to overpowered, even with the Touch range - ends if the foe hits you requirements.

  • I would say, make it target foe. Then it'd be more versatile without be ridiculously overpowered, especially if they switched it to fast casting (so we wouldn't, say, have tease necros) Overall, not powerful enough to warrant an elite spot, imo.

WoW Refrence[]

Is this really needed? Its pretty pointless to say that it could be a Night Elf... Female Eles Striptease too... It doesn't look that much like an elf anyway

stfu... just cuz we play GW and we are "supposed to hate WoW" doesn't mean you can get all pissed about the trivia. Stop denying the fact that its an elf. if i were to rate on a 1-10 how much it looked like a WoW elf... i would rate it an 8.7 tbh. And wtf eles strptease too? who gives a shit thats not the point. The point is that It's and elf from WoW, who commonly stripTEASE and the name of the skill is TEASE. By you saying ele's striptease too it thus reveals that you are just bitter towards Anet for being a "traitor" because you feel inclined from your GW roots to hate WoW and everything about it. Stop being a tool. --Vengeance.jpgEcho Ftw (talk|contribs) 07:54, 21 August 2007 (CDT)
Seriously? It makes him a tool for not thinking it is a WoW night elf? This trivia is unnecessary, it isn't a common thought, and it isn't common knowledge that night elves in wow strip. If anything the character in icon is just a hot chick teasing you...and that fits the skill.Akatookey 00:04, 14 September 2007 (CDT)

CM fun[]

I saw a guy running around with this, Shadow Walk, and Dash. He would Walk to you, use Tease, then Dash out. Kinda annoying.

Red thumbs down.png This skill has been voted as Less Able to Make Effective (LAME).

Several users of GuildWiki have formed a consensus that this skill sucks and badly needs an update from Anet.

This skill was voted as lame for the following reasons:

  • easily canceled
  • relatively weak effects

Agree. It would be nice if it didn't have the "ends if foe hits you" thing. — Abedeus Sandstorm.jpg 12:09, 18 August 2007 (CDT)

I think it should be a skill rather than a Hex Spell. Zulu Inuoe 15:03, 20 August 2007 (CDT)

I don't think the skills is that bad, I mean, is easy to aviod being hit, and in the long run it can have annyoing effects. Like only being able to cast dismiss condition every 6 seconds vs a condition heavy team or ZB every 8 seconds then you need it more. It certainly shouldn't be lame. - Shuuda

I don't think thta skill needs to have Lame Tag, when it is used properly, it can be deadly to any foe, especially monks.Big Bow 19:08, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

The problem is usually a skill has the LAME tag 'cause people aren't creative enough. Use this with Shadow walk and Dash and you can effectively hinder just about any enemy, as long as their monk sucks or you have a cover hex. Shadow Walk -> Tease -> Dash -> Cover Hex(Ether Phantom?)--DNA 01:49, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

VERY fun to use[]

Its an awsome skill to jsut have some fun with wars and sins who arent attackign you. In an HA group, switch this skill in just before you leave and let the wars and sins have it! I love the results, sins who used their whole bar and cant use them again for about 20 seconds! of course, it need s a cover hex. Dean Harper 18:08, 15 September 2007 (CDT)

You can't cover it - if they hit you it is removed, regardless of how many other hexes you've piled ontop of it. This is why the skill is lame. If you're going against an opponent stupid enough to not notice it, why not use a clumsiness/ineptitude combo? At least that does some damage while disabling attackers. 15:58, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

It would be fun if you had a team of 8 mesmers, and one of them (or perhaps even the whole team) has tease. Hell of a time figuring out who teased me, but that wouldn't be very practical. So yeah, potentially fun, but definitely LAME. Conscript 12:43, 8 January 2008 (UTC)

This skill is potentially useful if your primary is a ranger. Rangers have a wider variety of blocking skills which can be kept up throughout the duration of this hex. They can also use throw dirt to help prevent the target from hitting them as well. Although I'm not all too certain of the effectiveness of this skill on warriors as most adrenaline skills have no recharge time. Born to Mes 14:41, 20 January 2008 (UTC)

Energy Management Guide[]

Shoudl this be in Energy management guide (PvP) and Energy management guide (PvE)? --◄mendel► 23:02, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

It aint really energy management. You only gain energy IF multiple opponents clump together - somehting you shouldn't expect any opponent to do (imo). Also it needs to interrupt a spell to work. Power Drain is much better for energy management, this is just a better Cry of Frustration, the energy leaching is just bonus imo 22:40, 10 August 2008 (UTC)
Yeah, it's poor energy management, it's unlikely you'll squeeze all the energy out of it. It's more or less a "free" AoE interrupt. Powersurge360 22:42, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Everything in moderation of course. I just think a slightly lower recharge would make it on par with more popular Mesmer elites. I guess I'll just chain it with Fry of Crustacean for now. Lazuli 19:42, 27 August 2008 (UTC)
Tbh, it should just steal ~3..14..17 energy from your target, and cause the AoE interrupt. It would be a mix of Power Drain, Power Leak and Cry of Frustration (with a 5 energy cost and 15 second recharge), which sounds good, but not omigawdoverpowered. With those stats, something like the following would be nice for PvP:
Tease.jpg Cry of Frustration.jpg Power Leak.jpg Diversion.jpg Shame.jpg Power Drain.jpg Optional.jpg Flesh of My Flesh.jpg

Heros Ascent and the skill that is runining it.[]

Currently this skill is mucking up Hero's Ascent with teams running 2 heros loaded with interrupts, enchantment removal, and ritualist heals. PvX:Build:Me/Rt_HA_Tease_Hero with cry of frustration is an extremely common example. This gives very bad teams a retardedly good edge on very good teams, simply because the Hero's AI will intterupt every spell and skill that would be doing damage/healing/baking an apple pie...and it's to the point of stupid that teams are able to win so easily, just by having a bot win the game for them. This skill either needs a re-vert to it's old version for PvP (Still being incredibly potent, not sure why people didn't like it; other than the on-hit clause...) Or a function change. Again, this skill is mucking up HA with very repetitive team structures that allow for rediculously easy wins against teams that would previously be hard to compete against and would normally come down to skill in positioning, timing, etc. But being able to win because a Bot intterupts a healer's every just makes the game incredibly un-fun for the team that isn't running the same Gwen/Norgu hero builds.-- 16:04, 20 February 2009 (UTC)
