The Power Sword Weaver is currently one of the strongest DPS builds for fractals. Power Sword Weaver provides conjures,

, and additional
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
.

Unfortunately this build is pretty squishy and besides the healing skill does not have any defensive abilities to mitigate damage or cleanse conditions, so try to avoid damage. Be especially careful when there is

.

Also this build depends pretty much on supports and boon uptimes, as it cant provide any boons itself besides some

from blasting fire fields.

Though it 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 and .

Heal
Take it for additional
from fire fields. It is much less healing than glyph.
Helps with keeping up when burst heal is not needed.
Another alternative healing skill affecting allies close to the target you strike.
Offensive
Use this skill instead of
if you need extra cleave damage at the cost of some target dps. Also useful to generate
with a fire field.
Must have when phase times are pretty short and it is impossible to get full burst inside
effect or phases are too short.
Good on larger hitboxes and fast phase times instead of
. Precast that skill everywhere where it is possible for dps increase.
Precast it for Renegade for additional cc on encounters like Siax.
Defensive
Provides three blocks for things like the console in Aetherblade Fractal.
Another defensive utility skill granting

Strong defence against pulsing damage like the Heat Room in Thaumanova Reactor Fractal.
Utility
A teleport with a range of 900 units. Very important skill for certain skips, especially in combination with , useful in fractals like Cliffside Fractal, Aetherblade Fractal and Underground Facility Fractal.

Rotation / Skill usage
Information

Golem rotations out of the raid builds are generally suboptimal in fractals due to

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.

Advanced Notes

Burst priority

/
bursting options and priority:

Keep eye on boss HP/

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

+
, OR When
window is tight and you have time to cast only one of those skills within it.
has ALWAYS higher priority than other two skills in
/

  • ->
    ->

When you have enough time to use all those skills within phase time/

window or its situation like Skorvald/Siax phase 2 where you delay your
like that to let it hit with
modifier

  • ->
    ->

When there are a lot of adds around and you have to time to hit both burst skills within

/phase time. That option gives additional
stacks before burst.

Other

  • Try to finish your auto-attack chains (
    /
    and
    /
    ).
  • Use
    when the target's defiance bar is broken and you have
    and
    up.
  • On small hitboxes
    is better than
    , use it while attuning to
    .
Precasting

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.

Weaver Precast

  • Start on
    /
    with your Sword/Dagger and cast
    to provide a fire field.
  • Blast it using
    , then attune to
    /
    and cast
    ,
    and
    for extra blasts.
  • Precast
    and
    , and swap back to
    and
    .
  • Equip a staff and cast
    while attuning to
    /
    .
  • Take the mistlock.

It is recommended to use separate precast build to get additional buffs like

for openers and more boons from them.

Weaver precasting build template:

  • Arcane

  • Air

  • Weaver

Tempest Precast

  • Start on
    with your warhorn/staff tempest precast template and cast
    just when you get
    from any source ( the best if fire field is actually placed for might blast ).
  • Swap to
    and use
    and cast
    and weapon swap to staff.
  • Precast
    and
    while in
  • Precast
    , take the mistlock and swap your template to weaver. Attune to
    /
    .
  • Take the mistlock
  • NOTE: When using this precast it is recommended that one party member will bring the fire field. Otherwise use
    before using
    .

Tempest precasting build template:

  • Arcane

  • Air

  • Tempest

Other advices

  • If you have spare time before the encounter becomes active

    • Start in
    • Precast
      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 but the party is not going for a full precast (mostly in t4s) at least precast

    for yourself.
