The Elementalist is a hard class to play since it has light armor and not as much healing as other classes. However, with the right elementalist pvp build, it can become a very deadly professions in the right hands. Elementalists control the forces of nature to destroy their enemies and strengthen their allies. Water, earth, fire, and air are conjured and deliver enormous damage over large areas.
Fire can be used for its AE damage potential while using Staff 4 for the extra evade. When you and your group begin to take damage, and you will be the target believe me, switch to water and start the snares and heals while your group keeps the heat off you.
