About This Build

This is a terrible solo build, so keep in mind that without a group a staff DPS build is going to be extremely challenging. Extreme to the point that I would say check out our Dagger/Dagger build first before you delete your Elementalist. That being said I’ve read how some players have had success wit this type of build solo, but they are few and far between.

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. When the heavily armored folks start trying trying to bash in your head, switch to earth and hit 4 while you are on the run. Mist Form is going to be key so save it to avoid the burst once a couple of guys line up on you. When under heavy fire dodge roll toward your enemy then hit Burning Retreat. This give you two doges back to back, puts distance between you and the melee, and adds confusion to the fight.

If you find a way to solo this build leave a comment or send us a video, we would love to post it!
