GW2. Raid Build. Power Weaver. DPS Elementalist PvE.
Last Update: September 2023
The Power Weaver is a DPS elementalist build with great burst and sustained damage as well as mobility and evades to be able to survive. It relies on sticking to a set skill rotation, but you can quickly return to the target with the Sword/Dagger air abilities if you need to handle mechanics.
Mostly attune to Fire and Air for damage. Attuning to one element gives a damage modifier for 8 seconds, but dual-attuning to Fire/Air or Air/Fire after leaving a single attunement of either Air/Air or Fire/Fire is when you have the most damage due to gaining the power and ferocity from the Elemental Polyphony minor trait. So you should always use Primordial Stance and Arcane Blast (instant cast skills) when you are dual attuned to Fire and Air.
Start in Air/X and then swap to Air/Air to gain your Elements of Rage damage modifier
- Air/Air 3 > Swap Fire > Air 4 > Fire 2 > Fire/Air 3 > Glyph of Storms (if CD) > Swap Fire
- Fire/Fire 3 > Fire 2/4/5 > Swap Air
- Air 111 > Swap Air > Repeat
Always try to finish your Air auto attack chain for the third strike.
When your Weave Self is off cooldown, you can use it to gain extra damage modifiers and faster attunement swapping, but will need to go through the Water and Earth attunements. You will use this this extended burst combo when using Weave Self and then return to the basic rotation:
Weave Self Combo:
- Air/Air 3 > Swap Fire > Fire 2 > Fire/Air 3 > Glyph of Storms (if CD) > Swap Fire
- Fire/Fire 3 > Fire 2/4/5 > Swap Water
- Water/Fire 3 > Swap Earth
- Earth/Water 3 > Earth 2 > Swap Air
- Air/Earth 3 > Earth 4/5 > Swap Air > Return to Basic Rotation
If necessary to CC, Air 2 and 5 are very accessible to the rotation, and swapping to Earth will provide some extra CC.
Remember that if you are in a dangerous situation, you can always swap to Water or Earth attunement and an extra evade will be on the 2 skill.
