Condition Weaver offers high condition burst damage and moderate survivability. Weave Self holds the key to damage in this build, but also requires a long, fast-paced rotation that is heavily reliant on Alacrity and Quickness for success.

Build Fundamentals

Your rotation consists of two parts: (1) the Weave Self Rotation and (2) the regular Loop.

Weave Self Rotation

Weave Self reduces your attunement swap cooldowns to 2 seconds and grants you an element-specific buff for each element attuned. Attuning to all four elements in the next 20 seconds achieves a Perfect Weave granting a large boost to your stats for 10 seconds.

Delaying Perfect Weave as long as possible is ideal, as this maintains the Woven Fire bonus for almost the full 20-second window after casting Weave Self. After this, Perfect Weave grants 30 seconds of +20% condition damage.

On encounters with multiple phases, Weave Self might not always be off cooldown at the start of a phase. If this happens you need to estimate the time left in the current phase and use the skill accordingly. Situations requiring the 2nd Weave Self loop will occur often, we highly recommended learning to incorporate it in your rotation.

Utility Skills

Use Glyph of Elemental Power off cooldown, as it provides great damage when activated while still keeping the 180 precision due to Written in Stone.

Use Glyph of Lesser Elementals to spawn Fire Elementals off cooldown while in Fire Attunement.

Primordial Stance is your highest damaging utility. Using it in Earth Attunement will cause the highest damage output via increased Bleeding. However, if you ever get two charges use it in Fire Attunement too! Never have two charges saved up at any time.
