Elementalist PvE guides?
« on: January 04, 2013, 11:04:53 AM »
Anyone found a good guide for elementalists?  I'm kinda making it up as I go, which is to say, I get owned in multimob pulls, oops.  So I'm hoping to stop have that happening.

Hmm we didn't have elementalist covered in our giant list of play guides on the diss forums, but this is probably a good place to look for info:

here's a guide for dagger/dagger elementalist:

Elementalist is definitely one of the more difficult classes.  You will need to swap elemental attunements regularly to be effective.  You also have to be more careful about your build than most other classes do.  I have an elementalist, but I'm terrible at playing him and I know it, so I don't tend to take him into dungeons or anything. :)

One good piece of advice I was given was to make sure to put some trait points into the arcane tree, and also look at the arcane utility skills.  Making all your utility skills damage-related makes it more difficult to survive.
