I can't decide what to get.  :(

I'm just about 34.  I largely play as Water with a Staff, especially during DEs.  I like to play around with 2 knives, just because it's fun, and occasionally dabble in Fire and Air.  I mostly consider myself extra support healing for everyone else, dropping occasional Ice Bob-Ombs, and slowing mobs to help people keep range.

So there's these 5 skills, and I can't decide what would be best for me.

Oh, and I have never PvP'd, and may never, though it's likely I might try it at some point.

So out there in the PvE world, mostly playing 'alone' as I heart, but invariably, there are always other people in the area doing what I'm doing, I always feel like I'm part of a group in this game (which is awesome), what might give me the most bang for my buck?

Thanks.

Tornado is all you'll ever need in your life.  I mean really, you become a Tornado and throw mobs around...whats there not to like.  The Glyph of Elementals will probably fit what you like to do better, as you can summon an earth guy to tank or whatever, or a water one to heal, but I think the Tornado is the coolest shit ever.  That and it works very well in pvp, whereas the elemental does not.

Glyph of Elementals, the number of times I've dropped it behind me to tank and delay while I escape... To be honest, as a squishy class we just benefit from a tank a lot and while I've tried the others neither appeals to me that much (but I probably need more practice with the Sword.)

It's Tier 2, though, and so not an option for a first elite skill.

Glyph of elementals is all you will ever need. It's our best elite, hands down. Especially for PvE (but it's useful in pvp too). Our other elites look cool but usually don't end up being too useful.

i'd like to know why you say elemental is our best, im looking at tornado in particular as an alternative in both pvp and pve.
