A decent and super fun build for f2p and/or new to Elementalist players. I'd include the classic dagger/dagger ele combo in there: Ride the Lightning -> Updraft -> Burning Speed -> Ring of Fire -> Fire Grab.

A fantastic general open world option for free players, and a great build for players to get started with Elementalist. This build covers all the basics and can handle itself well.
