I would suggest a caster secondary profession to take advantage of fast casting. Anyways you'll probably end up using your primary profession more than your secondary. Also you can always change once you hit a certain point in the game.

I'd say take /M and stick to your primary skills except for a hard rez.
Then unlock the secondaries you like when you're ascended.

/Mo for rez, as mentioned. You could go /E for more damage, although I wouldn't recommend it. /N is a good one, as some hexes mix well with Illusion magic.

That's all I can think of right now...

ranger= You can have a pet which helps hold aggro for you in the beginning areas. Later on not as good but You can name your pet

Necro= Not to bad some good spells that will come in handy

Monk= When in doubt monk it out (hard Rez)

Warrior= I advise no till later (you can have fun with Illusionary weoponary)

Elementalist= Very powerful spells that can be copied (glyph of lesser energy is your friend)

No wrong choice you can change it later on in the game

Interestingly, I chose Ranger as my first secondary. I thought bows and pets were cool...I was very wrong. Changed it as soon as I could.

I went mesmer monk as I couldn't think of anything better at the time, it worked fine and got me through most of prophesies.

Nothing wrong with ranger as a secondary and if you like the skills go with that.

My mesmer started off by taking Elementalist as his secondary profession. Glyph of Lesser Energy is an excellent energy management skill that is extremely useful until you build up a decent repertoire of inspiration magic skills

I have three mesmers---my prophecies one is secondary ranger---she does a lot of interupting and the distracting shot etc helps out on that, and troll ungent. (and she uses a bow-long ranged attacks)
my canthan mesmer is a secondary rit--can rez pretty dang fast! (and can heal too)
and my elonian mesmer has a dervish secondary, not going really well with that one, but I needed to unlock the dervish skills so----------(and there are a few healing spells in that line).

I think there are some good choices and then some not soo good choices (I would put sin, warrior and dervish on the not so good end).

I havent tried /p or /n so I cant really say about those.

Having monk as secondary is never wrong in PvE, especially as Mesmer self heal is a joke.

Necro is almost as good, curses complement the mesmer skills quite well.

Ele is viable but not good, you'll basically become a weak-but-fast-casting-ele-with-severe-energy-management-issues, the skills don't synergize with mesmer skills.

My suggestion for the easiest PvE time: monk secondary.

Ele is actually a very decent secondary for a Mesmer, just don't go fast casting ele.

GoLE is my best friend, you know?

a mesmer choosing a secondary for e-management
what's wrong with this game ^^

Would say either monk (people like hardres), ele (for GoLE) or ritualist (splinter + ancestor is good + rit got better hard resses)

Yeah, ele is great for that. I meant don't go FC nuker, as you said. Although I didn't say it.

Everytime I see FC nuking, I die a little inside...

Yeah, especially in RA. I mean, a mesmer can do so much damage in RA fights against scrubs with no hex/condition removals, and you waste it spamming fireball/firestorm.


Anyway, to the OP, don't worry about it TOO much. Later in the game, you can change your secondary profession at any time.
