    Introduction

    Power Weaver is a very fast-paced, high-burst melee DPS build with good mobility at the cost of being very fragile.

    Build Fundamentals

    Fully attuning to any Element provides you with Elements of Rage.

    To maximize the duration of the Weave Self buffs, swap between Air, Fire, and Earth Attunements to use all of the strong damage skills. Then only go into Water when the Weave Self buff is about to end to extend it and gain Perfect Weave.

    Build Specifics

    Elementalist can change Attunements in the middle of channeling skills without interrupting them. To make sure you are not late to gain Perfect Weave, change Attunements as soon as they are available.

    Always use Primordial Stance and Arcane Blast in either Fire-Air or Fire-Fire to gain extra stats from Elemental Polyphony.

    Certain skills lock you in place. Be careful of your positioning when using them:

    Introduction

    Power Weaver is a very fast-paced, high-burst melee DPS build with good mobility at the cost of being very fragile.

    Build Fundamentals

    At the start of the fight, fully attune to Air Attunement to activate Elements of Rage. Try to do the same at the start of each boss phase if possible.

    Finish your auto-attack chains but do not delay swapping to different elements, doing so will cause you to lose Elements of Rage.

    Rotation can be simplified down to few basic principles you have to follow:

    1. Cycle between fully attuning to Air Attunement and Fire Attunement.
    2. Quantum Strike, Ride the Lightning, Pyro Vortex and all skills in your Fire Attunement should be used off cooldown.
    3. Use Glyph of Storms off cooldown.
    4. Cast Primordial Stance just before you fully attune to Fire Attunement so all pulses apply Burning.
    5. Pay attention to finishing Auto-attack chain. Skills such as Call Lightning provide higher DPS compared to the rest of the Auto-attack chain so it is important to finish as many auto-attack chains as possible without delaying the overall rotation.

    For some defensive options, you can use Riptide for evade and heal and Stone Resonance for Stability and barrier.
