The Power Weaver is currently one of the strongest DPS builds for fractals. Power Weaver provides conjures, Vulnerability, and additional Might through placing fire fields and blasting them. Also it is very useful for some T4 skips like Aetherblade, Cliffside, Thaumanova Reactor etc. thanks to high mobility and Lightning Flash.
Unfortunately this build is pretty squishy and besides the healing skill does not have any defensive abilities to mitigate damage or cleanse conditions, so high awareness is required. Special care needs to be taken on fractals with Mistlock Instability: We Bleed Fire.
Also this build depends pretty much on supports and boon uptimes, as it can't provide any boons itself besides some Might by blasting fire fields. This build has one of the most fluid rotations in game which makes it enjoyable to play if given some dedication. The build benefits heavily from slaying potions and sigils such as Powerful Potion of Slaying Scarlet's Armies and Superior Sigil of Serpent Slaying.
|Take it for additional Might from fire fields. It is much less healing than glyph.|
|Helps with keeping up Superior Rune of the Scholar when burst heal is not needed.|
|Another alternative healing skill affecting allies close to the target you strike.|
|Use this skill instead of Arcane Blast if you need extra cleave damage at the cost of some target dps. Also useful to generate Might with a fire field.|
|Must have when phase times are pretty short and it is impossible to get full burst inside Exposed effect or phases are too short.|
|Good on larger hitboxes and fast phase times instead of Primordial Stance. Precast that skill everywhere where it is possible for DPS increase.|
|Precast it for Renegade for additional cc on encounters like Siax.|
|Provides three blocks for things like the console in Aetherblade Fractal.|
|Another defensive utility skill granting Protection and Stability.|
|Strong defence against pulsing damage like the Heat Room in Thaumanova Reactor Fractal.|
|A teleport with a range of 900 units. Very important skill for certain skips, especially in combination with White Mantle Portal Device, useful in fractals like Cliffside Fractal, Aetherblade Fractal and Underground Facility Fractal.|
Golem rotations out of the raid builds are generally suboptimal in fractals due to Exposed and phases being much shorter compared to raids. The raid rotations are optimized for sustained DPS while in fractals a player needs the ability to adapt a rotation to the amount of time a group needs to finish a phase.\ For that reason you can find a video with openers, that are efficient to use here.
Keep eye on boss HP/Exposed duration to optimize the / burst priority there are 3 options for that burst:
When phases are that fast that you are not sure to get both hits with Fire Grab + Cauterizing Strike, OR When Exposed window is tight and you have time to cast only one of those skills within it. Fire Grab has ALWAYS higher priority than other two skills in /
When you have enough time to use all those skills within phase time/Exposed window or its situation like Skorvald/Siax phase 2 where you delay your Fire Grab like that to let it hit with Bolt to the Heart modifier
Try to finish your auto-attack chains (/ and /).
If a Mistlock Singularity is present you should precast boons and particular effects for better group performance.
There are two possible ways to precast boons as Elementalist.
Take the Mistlock Singularity.
It is recommended to use separate precast build to get additional buffs like Elemental Surge for openers and more boons from them.
Weaver precasting build template:
Take the Mistlock Singularity
Tempest precasting build template:
If you have spare time before the encounter becomes active
Precast Meteor Shower on staff, swap back to sword/dagger and attune to while casting. This can't be done using weapon swap as it interrupts casts, it is recommended to use build template for that purpose.
When there is an available Mistlock Singularity but the party is not going for a full precast (mostly in t4s) at least precast Conjure Fiery Greatsword for yourself.
