GW2. Best Open World Build. Celestial Tempest. Elementalist PvE.
Last Update: October 2023
With constant damage and sustained healing this Tempest build mainly uses the Fire and Earth attunements for boons and condition damage. Overloading the Fire Attunement gives might and inflicts burning while the Earth Overload gives protection and inflicts bleeding. All overloads will give alacrity, making both of them more quickly accessible and will benefit allies around you. Alternating between these two elements will suffice, but Water can also be used for some added healing.
The Written in Stone trait allows you to cast signets more often and still retain their passives, meaning the Signet of Restoration should be cast often to maximize your self healing, and the Signet of Fire should be cast off cooldown for the most damage. Use the Warhorn 4 skill in Fire and Earth attunement to upkeep boons.
Prioritize Signet of Fire always, and use Glyph of Elementals in Fire for damage or Water for healing
Fire Overload > Warhorn 5 > 4 > 3 > 2 > Swap Earth
Earth 2 > 5 > 3 > 4 > Earth Overload > 2 > Swap Fire
Try to swap attunement while in the middle of a longer cast skill, but do not interrupt overloads by swapping in the middle of their cast.
