Calling it unplayable is a serious exaggeration but the nerfs can certainly be felt here.
Fire weaver used be the OP build before Feb 20 patch. But after that all weavers were murdered. Fire weaver is only half as strong and almost unplayable. Very weak side noder. Tempests and D/F Lightning rod weaver are the only playable else now
Still better weaver, high dps, good sustain, nice aoe damage to help the party on points. I prefer it to the tanky mender sword (water trait). Very funny to play.
the only notable weakness this build has is the lack of mobility that other side noders possess otherwise, making map rotations and chasing down ranged targets somewhat difficult. Putting those aside tho, and u get a package that not only offers, but excels at everything a duelist would want: high consistent dmg w/ reliable cleave, good condi cleanse, boons for days, stable heals and barriers on top of multiple burst heals thru water field, stun break utilities that comes w/ either good evade frames or even more dmg,and an instant cast invulnerability that doesn't hinder your other actions. To top it all off, u have a an elite that serves as , essentially, a steroid that directly boosts your dmg, boon duration, movement speed, and toughness; making this build one of the best for defending on a side node.
My favorite build in the game, and as a duelist it is such an optimal role. It has tools to deal with every class coming into your point, your rotating abilities are OK if you continuously attune to Air and then to any other element (I suggest earth for the protection buff) then back to Air for the swiftness uptime, it can assist in team fights even though its not the best at it. Overall, when a good weaver gets their hands on this build, it can get scary and in a hurry.
This build has all it needs to be truly good. It belongs in Meta section - it's definitely above just "great" and it's one of the best options you can run for it's intended role.
It's negligibly slower at rotations due to not having movement skills/teleports it can use without target (though it still has a lot of Swiftness for that), but makes up for it with robust defensive capabilities, plain terrifying burst it can do, as well as great passive pressure.
It is capable of winning competing role matchups and holds it's own very well, and if current balance notes are anything to go by - it's going to become even stronger, as Warrior will lose Rampage damage and Holo - sustain and stab. However, currently care must be taken when facing core warriors running Tactics - Warrior's Cunning hurts. Really bad (but it will be fixed soon, too).
I have no trouble surviving with this build, thanks to the numerous defense skills provided by the focus, as well as the condi cleanse provided by fire auras, which are plentyful and on low cooldowns. And it deals a lot of damage.
Extremely strong build. Easily the best Ele build out there right now. I'm surprised more people aren't running this.
Pretty good but "easy" to counter with cleanse
Very good build. I suggest also a variation with celestial amulet, flame legion and element of rage trait for hybrid damage.
Very good build! Been running it for last 2 days and having great success! Top dmg almost everytime
A really strong build, usually top healing+dmg. Can make other team waste their time on you chasing you.
This is probably the best Ele build that currently exists in the game. While it's not quite as high sustain as menders sword, it makes up for it by actually having damage that your opponents must watch out for. 'Cleansing Fire' can replace the glyph if you are up against a heavy condi team making for a solid adaptable build.
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).
