Usage

Elite specialization basics

  • Weaver allows the Elementalist to attune to 2 elements at the same time, and skills 1-5 will be decided based on both. Let's call them primary and secondary attunements.
  • If you swap to Fire Attunement.png Fire Attunement then fire becomes your primary attunement and weapon skills 1-2 will be fire skills. Afterwards if you switch to Water Attunement.png Water Attunement for example then water is now your primary attunement and fire's moved to secondary - now skills 1-2 are water and 4-5 are fire. Skill 3 is a dual skill influenced by both active attunements fire + water for example is 24px Twin Strike.
  • The order of the attunements doesn't matter here, water primary with fire secondary has the same dual attack as fire primary and water secondary. Attuning to the same element twice has its own dual skill.


General

  • Signet of Restoration.png Signet of Restoration should seldom be touched, as the passive is extremely valuable. Note that several trait procs also count as skill activations and will benefit from the passive of this signet.
    • Unless you either have a high amount of Confusion Confusion on you, or you're already at maximum health, you should always be casting something (autoattacks will do too). This is to get the most out of this signet's passive.
  • Cycle fire -> air -> fire -> air to maintain Swiftness Swiftness while roaming between capture points.
  • Every stance applies Stability Stability which has many uses, including safe stomping downed enemies or securing important skills.
  • Twist of Fate.png Twist of Fate can be cancelled by stowing your weapon in rare cases when the full evasion isn't needed (let's say you have to cleave a downed target and must keep the pressure up, but had to break stun). Another application includes pressuring targets through Primordial Stance.png Primordial Stance and 24px Lava Skin whilst evading incoming attacks.


Damage

  • This build is all about stacking Burning Burning.
  • Primordial Stance.png Primordial Stance and Glyph of Elemental Power.png Glyph of Elemental Power can instantly add burst to any attack skill you're using:
    • When it comes to offense, you can't go wrong with activating them on Fire Attunement.png Fire Attunement - fire yield the most raw damage output.
    • Air Attunement.png Air Attunement is also a good choice for both because of the Vulnerability Vulnerability stacking, but this condition's effectivenes severely depends on how pressured your target is - especially when it comes to the glyph which only stacks one condition type at a time. If the target doesn't have any damaging conditions and isn't being focused by your team, Vulnerability doesn't do much.
    • Note: all 5 charges of the glyph go off based on the attunement you were in the moment this skill was used, swapping attunements doesn't change anything.
  • As for weapon skills, your heavy hitters are 24px Flame Uprising, 24px Lava Skin, and 24px Pyro Vortex. The latter two also pulse damage each second for a period of time, making them synergize well with both Primordial Stance.png Primordial Stance and Glyph of Elemental Power Glyph of Elemental Power.


Dealing with conditions

  • When auras no longer suffice Magnetic Wave.png Magnetic Wave is what you should use. This is the best anti-condition skill in the build, instantly removing 3 conditions upon being used.

This is actually a potent build that mixes some power with condition damage while being strong against a plethora of builds. It does struggle against scourge (and sometimes core/reaper) at times, however this may just be an alternative to the mender's build if not better! More damage is always welcome.

Probably the best build for weaver, i watched phantaram play the build and tried it myself both extreme fire damage with the help of Sage Amulet it gives 1k power for raw damage with Lava Skin and Shearing Edge. the build overall gives the consistent damage on down foes. and i consider if you want more condition damage then power you should go with Rune of Balthazar it gives more condition damage and 10% more HP(Good with the 500 Vitality from Amulet).
