What do you guys think about something like this?

http://gw2skills.net...Fn4S4hCEkQRxM7A

A 30/0/0/20/20 DPS oriented Cantrip Build (ofc max'd boon duration runes)

I was actually thinking going 30 fire on Staff, kinda doesn't work for me with d/d because I'm used to having condi removed with water but for a staff it could work.
I would change Soothing Disruption for Cleansing Wave just to help out while Cleansing Fire is on cd. And I would change Spell SLinger for Internal Flame and change Internal Flame on the 2nd tab with Pyromancer's Alacrity for faster skill recharge.
Alsso I find Lightning Flash to  be situational so I would consider having Armor of Earth as a backup because stability is gold!

Also for Weapons I'd go Sup Sigil of Energy and maybe some toughness or vitality runes with Knight's/Valkyire armor and Knigt's Jewels. You might also want to combine some prec runes aswell or go most with prec runes. Would be very balanced and do plenty of damage from distance. I could see that work.
Also would work well in a combo with Guardian's Empower :D

Uhm... so basically u'd make the build to rely less on cantrips (longer CD and no might gain) in exchange of a condition removal on swap, mmh... u didnt convinced me :P
About Armor of Earth instead of Teleport well.. it's situational i guess, you can cast 2 Teleports in the same time frame of 1 Armor giving you twice the Vigor and the Regen and 2 "free_no_cast_breaking_dodge" in exchange of Stability and Protection...
Must think about it because i would really like to keep casting my meteor shower/healing rain while "tele_dodging" red circles

I will have to try out both builds :D

EDIT: Tests have been done. Here are my opinion on how well I've handled the build in Dungeons/PvE?Fractals.I found Mist Form and Armor of Earth most usefull. Lightning Flash and the Condi cantrip just don't work for me that much. I used Arcane Shield.
With Staff I was able to upkeep 11-14 stacks of Might from distance which was nice to build for MS casting. As for Regen/Vigor/Might when using Cantrips of the traits I didn't notice much difference because I always save utility for rough times and not to stack Might and I use Sup Sigil of Energy so I don't have much problem with Vigor. The build is good. I'm still using it. Could use a bit of improvements. Plus adding Conjure Fiery GS adds more Power and Condi.
Kinda hard for me to go back to staying in just 1 attunement because I'm used to switching them so much but I think for Single play in PvE it might work.
I also didn't test it in WvW but assuming you're in zerk this will do wonders to Invaders. Needs a bit more improving for PvE though, more depending on situations and stuff.
