E/Me Earth Build
Hey I just started playing Elementalist and came up with this build that I've been using in some of the various arenas. I'd like some suggestions on how it can be improved.
Earth Magic: 12 + 1 + 3
Energy Storage: 8 + 2
Inspiration Magic: 10
Rune of Vitae x 2
Sup. Vigor Rune
Armor: All +energy insignias
Signet of Humility
Armor of Earth -or- Ward Against Melee
Glyph of Lesser Energy
I've played this build for a few hours and here are the main things I've found. Overall, the damage dealing capabilities seem fine, but, again, I'm new to this class. I have also noticed that after a few minutes my e-mgt is not great, this most likely because I will occasionally forget to recast Earth Attunement in the heat of battle and I still cast Obsidian Flame a bit too much.
My main attacks are Obsidian Flame and Stoning. I use Sandstorm when melees aggro on a character so that I get the bonus damage from attacking.
At 10 inspiration Signet of Humility will disable the elite skill of my target for 11 seconds, has a 2 second cast, and a 20 second recharge. I try to use it mainly against monks and other elementalists. I like going for monks the best since it usually severely affects their ability to heal.
Everything in the build is pretty self explanatory and I'm sure there are similar builds out there. Is there anything I can improve from a damage / protection perspective?
