    Utility Skills



    Condition Alacrity Tempest is a versatile offensive support build that provides permanent Alacrity, 25 Might, and Protection, as well as boon extension for other boons thanks to Sand Squall.

    Multiple traits and utility skills can be modified to suit the specific requirements of different encounters.

    Build Fundamentals

    Use Overload Fire and Overload Earth off-cooldown to apply Alacrity via Lucid Singularity, and fill downtime with damaging and boon-providing skills. Always channel Overloads until the end to grant powerful element-specific effects and additional Alacrity.

    Swap attunements promptly in this order: Fire Attunement Air Attunement Earth Attunement. Late Overloads result in lost Alacrity uptime.

    Build Specifics

    Heat Sync spreads boons to allies, and Sand Squall extends the duration of boons on allies so make sure to cast both as soon as possible.

    Use Glyph of Storms and Glyph of Lesser Elementals while on Fire Attunement.

    Use Signet of Fire and Flame Barrage off cooldown

    While not part of the rotation, Water Attunement contains powerful healing in the form of Overload Water, blasting Water Globe with Frozen Burst, and Cone of Cold (which can also provide CC).

    Swapping attunements will not cancel skills, you can swap to Air Attunement after the last Drake's Breath without waiting for it to fully channel.

    Glyph of Lesser Elementals and Glyph of Elementals can be precast during downtime.

    Crowd Control


    Utility Skills

    If needed, swap out Glyph of Storms for:

    If you need additional utility, replace utility skills in the following order:

    1. Glyph of Storms
    2. Glyph of Lesser Elementals
    3. Signet of Fire


    Gale Song can be replaced with Latent Stamina for some extra endurance and vigor when swapping to Water Attunement.
