Still a "meta" build imo. Very strong AoE damage output. Relies a lot on the user being good at positioning. Does not contribute much to the squad unless you want to sacrifice damage for squad support, but if you sacrifice damage for support there is no reason to play this build because other classes would be more efficient.

Always make sure you can cast lava font and meteor shower when they are ready, other than that try rotate other attunements than fire to get the 10% damage buff from Elements of Rage. My preference is starting full fire, then swapping to either earth or air depending on the fight, then back to fire, etc.

Biggest negative is that the spec is very squishy, easy to get caught off guard by a revenant if your positioning is off.

Amazing build in capable hands. Provides reliable CC and well placed meteor shower can win you the fight.

However if your meteor shower is unimpactful, you won't outdamage other damage dealers making the build worse than other damage dealer options that provide support/boonrip in addition.

Ranged rev is more reliable making this 3 stars. I believe Glyph of Elemental harmony should be mentioned as option for heal skill if condi cleanse isn't necessary.

Great build. High skill cap. Able to do massive damage through Meteor Shower, while still maintaining decent damage and ground control through attunament' skills. Heavily benefits from extra offensive stats (ferocity and power) and outgoing damage modifiers from the Weaver elite spec, while also having access to vitality and precision from traits, which is essential to stay alive (even if using full marauder).

Very powerful damage build, but fairly difficult to real good at due to its squishiness. Shines in large groups but easily picked off in 15 man teams. A well placed Meteor Shower can generate tons of downs by itself. Very little group support in this class. Pure damage.

It's the highest damage build and really usefull in largest zerg fights, but it can be really quickly killed by a rev from range and a bunch of classes/specs from close.

This is the Meta build. However I don't believe we need to run this glassy. Master's Fortitude is better IMHO than the 15% more crit on weakened. Adding some Knights gear to increase Toughness will give your healers more time to react to damage and make the build more viable in smaller groups.

One of the best DPS builds for Open Fielding, bringing out massive damage in the form of rolling AoE devastation (contrasting to Power Rev's smaller aoe directed spike). While tougher to play than Power Rev or Vanilla Backline Ele, it's more versatile and can achieve higher overall damage output and add both CCs and if necessary support.

Top tier DPS in a large scale ranged fight. Easy to achieve good DPS, but difficult to survive on.

This is the greatest big dick damage build that has ever god darn existed in the history of elementalist gameplay. Its got EXACTLY everything needed for this fast-paced, competitive, and exciting meta. Lets take a look shall we:

- A MOST impressive 2943 POWER damage (higher than any other damage in its class)

- 15555 Health (Selfishly, I added 2 +5 Vitality infusions to hit the optimum 15x4 health in this meta)

- A complex rotation of static, fire field, meteor shower, pile driver

- The ghost of Serane looking on and smiling as you do 10k DPS

Psssst, take master's fortitude, its free vitality. They are just giving it to you, for free. I mean you gotta take the trait but the vitality is free. Its free, 1200 health.

It does power dps, pair with a hammer rev pulsing might and fury and your laughin all the way to the bank. You are more reliant on your team not blowing, but that shouldnt be a problem in this high stakes, high functioning, coordinated game known as Guild Wars 2.
