I was actually surprised how easy my doppler went down. Fire eles have it easiest tho. Just nuke him/her with Meteor Shower, Fire Storm, etc and it goes down in seconds. I actually prefer Meteor (casts faster) followed by Meteor Storm.

BTW, what's the bonus on that mission? Or was there one? The cinematic came up so fast, I didn't even see the XP I got from it. So what did I miss?

I was sword warrior and I beat him in about 10 seconds... so easy, and I was even using Frenzy myself (it was my first time so I just went psycho on the guy).

I think the bonus is doing it within a set amount of time? Not sure though cos I don't remember if I got it or not. But it's the only way they could possibly put a bonus in that mission, I mean all you do is step on some stones and then kill a guy...there's nowhere else to go

For my Elementalist/Mesmer (Air Magic), I used the following:

1. Aura of Restoration
2. Lightning Orb
3. Lightning Strike
4. Lightning Javelin

I cast Aura first, then hit the Doppleganger with Orb, Strike, and Javelin - interchangeably.

It took about 5-10 seconds.

Well for all professions with monk (primary or secondary doesnt matter) all you need is healing breeze and a weapon! Doppelganger doesnt use healing breeze and therefore you will kill him easily

Necro: Bring skills which will sacrifice life. You won't be using them, but the double will. Just sit still and watch it kill itself.

Monk: Life Attunement and Healing Breeze. DO NOT USE LIFE ATTUNEMENT! It cuts your damage down to fraction of what it was. Let double use it, while you are using your wand/staff to kill it. Use Healing Breeze if you need healing.

Mesmer: Hexbreaker + Empathy + Backfire. Before you step on the last stone, use Hexbreaker, then cast empathy on the double. Renew Hexbreaker and cast Backfire. Then just strafe around it's arrows.

Ranger: Bring bar full of rituals, and just start to plink at it while it wastes time on the rituals.

Warrior: Just go bash it's head in. Thats the thing you're good at, right?

Elementalist: Meteor Shower, Firestorm, Aura of Restoration + flare. Remember to move out of AoE-spells when double casts them on you. Before stepping on that last stone, cast Aura, then MS on double, then FS. And then at your leisure just flare it to death.

Hope this helps some people who might be stuck against the double. Any errors, omissions, typos, mistakes in grammar.. Post on the thread, and I'll try to correct them.


I'm a Warrior/necro and the way i killed him was using useless skills
I saw he had an axe and a bow as weapon and i have a sword so i equipped all my sword skills
The bastard was finisched in 25 seconds

My E/Me took out the Mirror with Flare/Backfire. Flare lowers the thing's damage because Flare kinda sucks, and Backfire did alot of damage because Backfire Rocks.

Empathy helped too; don't remember what else I brought, except that they weren't interrupts.

This almost felt like cheating... as a mesmer with no real elementalist skill to speak of, I just equipped:

Backfire
4 Different Mantras of elemental things
Armor of Earth (or whatever that is)
2 Wards

Yep. The guy sat there casting spell after spell... and taking 126 damage each time. I poked him with my staff a couple times. So... freakin'... cheap.

Question, though... about the Doppleganger's armor... does he copy that, go a bit stronger (as with your attributes), or does he just come with a pre-set armor class?

monk/me here skill bar set up in this order

backfire empathy phantasm symbol of wrath imagined burden etheral burden healing breeze reversal of fortune

before you enter fight right before you step on last pad cast healing breeze and reversal of fortune start fight

pop backfire and empathy and then hit conjur phantasm 2x and dopplinger will die in less then 50seconds

dopplinger will use the two slow skills and phantasm on you

my point allocation was this

dom 9 illusion 2
healing 3
smiting 8
protection 6

obviously the things you need for this is dom9 and max illusion for this to be real successful...and point some points into healing for your breeze and reversal should win no sweat

The ranger doppleganger is the easiest to beat. Equip a bow, distracting shot, and troll unguent, and get within melee range of the shadow. He'll switch to an axe. You can interrupt his healing and he can't do anything about yours.

wow..didn't even think about using meteor shower on the doppel

Why do people think so hard about this stuff? You should have the experience to smok the doppel pretty easily.

As a fire elem, I didn't even USE meteor shower and I still beat it First try, in 20 seconds.

Just go in and do your thing. If you don't know what skills would work, maybe you don't know your skill set well enough.

The double DEFINATELY USED METEOR SHOWER... that is the first thing he casts. Let him cast it and wait.. as you see it fire off then run.
Now run straight at him use Glyph (-15 energy damage) and return the meteor. As your right next to him he wont back off because hes locked on you. He gets pounded now and he will get knocked down by the meteors disrupting his spells. Use Lavafont and Phoenix.. the rest is history.

Determined not to switch my attribs I beat him in short order as a E/Mo Geomancer.

Earthquake
Aftershock
Obsidian Flame
Stoning
4*Elemental Attunements

As expected the first thing he did was start putting up the attunements
Run up, 1...2...3...4...dead

Elapsed time: I think around 15s. certainly only 1-2s more than the combined casting time of the skills
