GW2. Raid Build. Arcane Staff Support Tempest. Heal Elementalist PvE.
Last Update: September 2023
The Arcane Staff Tempest is a Support elementalist build with extremely potent healing and revive potential, making it great for recovering from tough mechanics, but also great for serving as the only healer in a composition. This build gives alacrity and protection when stacking on the group, but works as a kiter as well because of its ability to support from range.
Role: Support or Kiter
Combine blast finishers with water fields to create healing combos to heal your party.
Blast Finishers: Water 2, Earth 2, Earth 3 Transmute, Dodging in Earth, “Aftershock!”
Water Fields: Water 3, Water 5
Other Healing Sources: Water Overload, Dodging in Water attunement, “Wash the Pain Away!”
“Rebound!” can be used in clutch situations to save yourself and one party from lethal damage so that they can easily revive the others.
Basic Rotation for Alacrity, Protection, Might, and Healing
- Fire Overload > Fire 2
- Earth Dodge > 3×2
