Can anyone take a look at this build for leveling PVE? I'm new to the guild wars realm so be gentle with me as I'm guessing my build is probably terrible.
Judging from your choices, it appears this build is optimized for a group damage and support role. You have beefed up your survivability too, thus this combination will make you valuable in boss DE, dungeons, and long engagements.
If this is what you are aiming for then the only changes I would suggest is to switch Arcane Blast with Arcane Wave. In addition to a quick burst of damage, Arcane Wave is a Combo Blast finisher; meaning you can use it in conjunction with a Combo Field (such as Lava Font, Burning Retreat, Static Field, Frozen Ground, Geyser, and Healing Rain) for additional affects. Self-triggering combos are one of the main benefits of a staff-user Elementalist, and you should try and take advantage of this as much as possible with Arcane Wave.
Also, while Glyph of Storms is a fun and useful AOE utility on a 60s cooldown its benefit is diminished as a staff user as you already have several
great AOE options in all 4 attunements. Consider using Signet of Fire instead, as an improved crit rate would increase the damage potential across all of your abilities,
while also giving you access to a quick burn dot on a 20s cooldown.
