V. Basic Gameplay

This build plays much more aggressive than DD ele. Perfect 1v1 build and team fighter to share boons with elemental attunement, provide projectile blocks, heals with evasive arcana and might stacking. Want to set up burst with Gale followed by Fire rotation to stack burns then swap to earth to stack might and cover condi with bleeds and gain Fire Aura with earth leap through fire field and go back to fire to resume burn stacking. you can get 10+ stacks of burn which can equate to 2.7k burn tics plus auto attacks.

 

Blind enemies when they are about to burst or if they are downed to secure stomp by just burning them with Fire attunement or cleansing fire.

 

Stability isn't needed since Signet of Air is on a 25 sec cooldown and Air 4 and Earth 4 can block projectiles to secure stomps on warrs and engi.

 

Earth 5 Invul should be used to secure stomps when it is a must, disengage, or secure a rez.
