Video example


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.
  • Earthquake.png Earthquake is available as your Earth Attunement.png Earth Attunement 4 skill.
  • 24px Gale Strike is available as your Air/Earth 3 skill.
  • Wind Blast.png Wind Blast in Lightning Hammer.

A very high damage build, strong in all situations where power DPS are brought, but usually inferior to Fresh Air Sword or Tempest. Since it uses the same gear as those builds you're usually better off running one of them instead.
