Usage & Skill Rotations:
I'll try now to explaine how i use this build as best as i can...
As you can see from Traits and Skillbar this build relies a lot on Cantrip's sinergies, you can get a bounch of boons before and while in combat from them in almost everything from DPS to Tankiness.
I usually run around in Air Attunement for passive speed boost and because it's my opener skill rotation startup which i'm going to describe you:
Air ---> Ride the Lightning + Shocking Aura (istant cast) + Updraft than switch to...
Fire ---> Burning Speed + Armor of Earth (istant cast) + Ring of Fire + Dodge Roll back than...
Earth ---> Lighting Flash (istant cast) + Earthquake + Cleansing Fire (istant cast) + Churning Earth than...
Earth ---> Ring of Earth + Autoattack a few times, than switch back to...
Air ---> Lighting Touch + Autoattack if anything still alive + Shocking Aura when ready.
In the space of 6-7 secs with this heavy rotation you gain:
Might: 22 stack for 36s (if you add a 2nd dodge roll 25 stack // 12 are AoE)
Clean any condition you had on
Bleeding: 12-14 stack for 12s
2 Knockdown Lock
Massive AoE Dmg
With this rotation my Lightning Whip autoattack hit for almost 4k Dmg on crits (up to 3 targets) while doing 1.6k-1.8k on average normal hit. (Crit chance is around 50%++)
Ofc you also can make use of less skills to save your best rotation (the one above) for more dangerous encounters... basically the startup (Air + Fire) stays while you can skip the rest at your will
When wielding a Staff (which mean you are in a not_friendly meele situation in hard dungeon's fights) you can make use of Fields + Blasting Staff and simply dodge roll inside to help your team boosting their dmg, healing them, making AoE CC.
My standard staff rotation doesnt involve in such heavy boost as D/D has...
Instead it focuses to stop enemies and deal a good initial dmg, Utilities and Combo Fields are used only when necessary as i try to keep always avaiable as much as possible.
Air ---> Windborne Speed + Static Field (between team and enemies) + Gust on nearest enemy, than...
Earth ---> Unsteady Ground + Eruption + Shockwave on nearest enemy, than...
Fire ---> Flame Burst + Lava Font + Meteor Shower
That's it more or less... stay in fire autoattack, switch water to spam heals and AoE Chill if needed... switch back to Air or Earth for more CC than go back to Fire to make good use of Elemental Attunement trait.
Hope you'll like my work,
If you need further infos dont esitate to ask me!
Have a nice day!
