The toughness gained from traits will bring you above 1240 toughness at some parts of your rotation, so make sure you communicate with your tank about any potential aggro loss issues.

This build has access to CC options that are easier to use than Staff Weaver, however it still faces the problem of having to wait for two attunement swap cooldowns before gaining access to most of its CC skills

  • 24px Polaric Leap inflicts a short daze that is rounded up to be equivalent to a 1 second daze when used against a breakbar. This is your only CC skill that is available after only one attunement swap
  • Updraft.png Updraft is available as your Air Attunement.png Air Attunement 5 skill. Be mindful of your positioning when casting this, as it will move you approximately 300 units away from your target.

Chinkeeyong gave this build 4 stars September 2018

This build deals good DPS but is only situationally viable due to its fluctuating toughness. It also doesn't really bring anything over other condition DPS builds.

Troupe gave this build 5 stars July 2018

With various balance changes happening around it and various minor buffs to sword skills Condi S/D weaver has found itself in a strong position relative to other condition DPS options. This build puts out strong damage to all-sized targets and doesn't lose much against mobile enemies, but has a mechanically intensive rotation and many button presses that make it not suited to beginner elementalist players.
