Relic
  • The only good alternative DPS relic is Relic of the Aristocracy
  • For defense, ensure you are using a Jade Core and consider some defensive food, like . If necessary, some Celestial Celestial or Trailblazer Trailblazer pieces can make a big difference. Defensive relics like Relic of Evasion, Relic of the Adventurer, and Relic of the Zephyrite are decent options as well.

Budget Equipment

This set is incredibly cheap and provides very high HP, but is lower DPS. If using this variant, place much heavier priority on Fire Attunement

Usage

Damage

  • Focus primarily on Fire Attunement and Earth Attunement.
  • Air Attunement can be used to apply Vulnerability Vulnerability.
  • Double Attune to elements to proc Elements of Rage
  • Constantly swap elements to proc Weaver's Prowess
  • Use Primordial Stance, Signet of Fire, and Glyph of Elemental Power off cooldown.
  • Summon Glyph of Elementals in Fire and activate its skill off cooldown.

Loop Priorities

  • There are many viable loop patterns to use for weaver.
  • The general idea is to focus on Fire-Fire as the "default". From there, loop into either Earth or Air, alternating between the two after each Fire-Fire.
  • A suggested example is as follows:
  1. Fire Attunement / Air Attunement
  2. Start combat with Lightning Orb
  3. Fire Attunement / Fire Attunement <-- Loop starts here
  4. Earth Attunement / Fire Attunement
  5. Fire Attunement / Earth Attunement
  6. Fire Attunement / Fire Attunement
  7. Air Attunement / Fire Attunement
  8. Fire Attunement / Air Attunement
  9. Repeat the loop
  10. Quick Text Version: open with f/a to get in combat -> f/f -> e/f -> f/e -> f/f -> a/f -> f/a -> f/f (repeat)
  11. Your attunement presses will look like this: Fire(Opener)-Earth-Fire-Fire-Air-Fire-Fire

This can appear complex, but with only a few minutes of practice the loop becomes very rhythmic and most players will find it easy to follow.

Fire Priority

  1. Wildfire
  2. Dragon's Tooth
  3. Phoenix
  4. Heat Sync

Air Priority

  1. Lightning Orb
  2. Lightning Strike

Earth Priority

  1. Fracturing Strike
  2. Dust Storm
  3. Rock Barrier Hurl

Defense

  • Glyph of Elementals - Earth and Water are strong tank pets
  • Signet of Restoration - passive heal
  • Sand Squall - reflect projectiles
  • Dust Storm - aoe Blind Blind
  • Rock Barrier - barrier + toughness

Crowd Control

  • Gale
  • Polaric Leap (Sword)
  • Gale Strike
  • Weave Self Tailored Victory

An amazing build! Deals a lot of damage against enemies and probably my favorite for now to play Elementalist with!

I was pretty frustrated with most builds until i tried this. Really good for solo(arcane) and great for groups(earth).

My all time favorite ele build. Feels much more dynamic and fast-paced when compared to any tempest build, pair that with above average self-healing, and the ability to kill most trash mobs with the single press of a button, and you get a fun, fast, powerhouse of a elementalist that can take on even some more difficult content.

One of my top 3 favorite builds right now, the others being Condi Mirage (melee) and Shortbow Renegade. Very configurable: multiple good weapon choices, and you could probably do well with any utility skills you want, though the ones listed here are likely the best choice for general use. Very durable, yet good damage. While switching stuff around, I ended up with 2 condi clears (Sigil of Cleansing and Diamond Skin trait) and found that, with those and of all the passive barrier and healing applications, I could kill pretty much all of the PoF repeatable hero points while hardly ever moving or dodging, usually losing little or no health in the process. Pretty easy to use, too: as long as you switch attunements often, you can kill stuff pretty quickly with almost random weapon and utility skill usage--though intelligent use gets better results, of course.

A really strong open world build for ele that's great in virtually all situations.
