Maybe it never coalesced into something brilliant. Maybe it never made it off the ground floor. Maybe we based our better ideas off of it. Basic builds are anywhere from downright bad to just shy of being good enough to showcase. These builds share the widest ratings and can lead to wildly differing levels of success.

Focused on: Team support and defense.

Overview

Elementalist is a great all round class, that is thus able to put out more damage in a support role than any other support-capable class. With tons of boon support now increased with Elemental Attunement combined with reduced Attunement Recharge through Weaver, the old standard team healing and condition cleansing through Arcane+Water, and its own protection augmented by barriers and improved access to vigor, played correctly, Weaver is a powerful addition to any conquest team. Elementalist also provides the best projectile hate for pesky ranged damage dealers which have seen a recent increase in popularity.

  • Very squishy if caught without protection, or barriers or earth attunement ready. Best to try to support without getting within striking distance, and only go for damage when opportune.

Counters

  • Scourge's corruption are on a low cool down, but require you to be next to a shade or the scourge itself. Try to keep distance and dodge the shade casts.

The amount of support this build gives in exchange for what it gives up seems completely disproportionate. While very tanky and packing lots of utility for itself, it offers very low amounts of support compared to the many other support builds in the game.

Some team cleansing and healing is there, but that's a feature of the elementalist class as a whole that is not unique to this build. Tempest provides much more boons/healing/cleansing/aura utility to its team while bringing more damage. So what does this build do that is unique?

It is much harder to kill. This is an incredibly tanky build. While that's valuable, particularly for those learning a class, there is a balance between personal stats and support provided that must be taken into account on support builds, and I think this swings far too far to the personal side. It's just far too easy to ignore as the support it isn't game-swinging like the effects that other supports bring.

I also dislike the rune (herald), amulet (celestial), and sigil (absorption) choices. This new celestial is awful, providing no more stats than the 4-stat amulets. The old celestial was good because it had 30% more stats than every other amulet type. At the same amount, the 3 power stats are inefficient and could be better used in a focused 4-stat spread.

Decent safe build for learning the class. Not enough to push it to good.
