Best support build in PvP by far. The build is a bit more selfish than previous iterations, but it's never been more tanky and the support it puts out through CC, mitigation, cleansing, raw healing and rez power is simply amazing and unmatched.
June 12: Updating my rating yet again -
I don't see how this version of tempest beats the Soldier Rune variant used before. Shout+Aura+Cleanse synergy brings much more team value and is strong on personal sustain level as well . The updated build here is OK for the 2v2 / 3v3 fiesta, but not for conquest.
Still think earth is a waste of a trait-line, but you could play it that way.
Swap Earth for Fire 1 or 3 / 2 / 3 for more cleanse, heal, aura share - and the build will be a strong A+. Earth is useless and has been so for a while. It's a selfish trait that allows to survive 3 seconds longer - but what's the point of being the last one standing as a support?
Good support build but it only really works in tangent with a FB or with a coordinated AT group. Still a strong build but too easily shutdown and weak compared to solo/duo Qing as a firebrand
It does its job as support, but it's not optimal. Firebrand's healing potential and other misc. support such as group on-demand stun breaks & stability as well as group reflects, resistance, and other boons (as well as CC) makes this build basically inferior to Firebrand support.
That's not to say this build is bad. It supports and can definitely be tanky, and has an invuln skill that FB lacks. Additionally, the projectile denial isn't locked behind a separate on-CD kit. Also has strong AoE pressure with Air Overload.
- Decent support build.
- It can hold its own against most of the enemies.
- Its hard to support when fighting against scourges.
Still the best Elem build in ranked
I disagree with OXzid. I run a very aggressive version of this build in ranked solo. So far, this has been my most successful starting season. Nasty build, with superior team support, and sneaky damage.
Great support build, probably the best ele build atm. Big heals through aura traits, lots of CC with shocking auras. Personally I prefer Staff over D/F, as it has better damage capabilities and access to water fields.
It is one of the best support build with his aurasharing. It has nice partywide healing and protection. it will be sure meta in the next season.
Zuko runs this build and keeps my scrub ass alive in team fights. Great team fight potential if you keep rotating it to where the team fights are due to high on demand healing and passive heals (552 aoe regen from soothing mist+regen boon). It is not a 1v1 build as it's not what it's built for but it should sustain and stalemate in 1v1's long enough to get a plus 1 in your favor. 10/10
