Support Tempest PvP Build

GW2. Support Tempest PvP Build. Elementalist 2022.

Fire Variant

The Aura Share Tempest is a powerful Support which counters projectile builds and offers plenty of utility and healing for its allies. It heals mostly through sharing auras which means any time you gain an aura your nearby allies will gain them.

Tempests can be squishy without allies to counter pressure for them so they need to be mobile and maximize the 600 range of the aura sharing for safer positioning. Always bring Glyph of Renewal to revive your allies.

With the fire trait Smothering Auras, you cleanse many conditions by transmuting those auras. Also there is extra access to auras which can further heal your allies. However, the uptime on protection is rather low, making you rely on positioning and kiting to survive being focused.

Healing Rotation:

  • Air 3 > 3 > 4 > 5 > Swap Fire
  • Fire 5 > 5 > 3 > > 2 > Overload Fire > 5 > 4 > Swap Earth
  • Earth 3 > 2 > 4 > 5 > Swap Water
  • Water 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > Water Overload

Stick in any of the attunements to get more value out of overloading in it if time permits. Use Earth Shield when waiting to Overload or when under heavy pressure. Use 3/4 for CC and the 5 for invulnerability.

CCs: Air 3, Transmuting Air 3, Earth 3, Air 5, Earth Overload, Air Overload, Water 5, Tornado

Projectile Block/Reflect: Air 4, Earth 2/4, Earth Overload, Rebound (then swap to Earth)

Utility Options: Earth Shield, Mist Form, Lightning Flash, “Aftershock!”, “Rebound!”, Tornado

Earth Variant

While the Fire variant has much more cleanse and heals, the Earth trait line gives out more protection and is not as squishy, making it a good pick against power compositions or if your team needs someone to stand on nodes. However, it is much more punishing to go against condition builds with the Earth variant than it is to go against power builds as the Fire variant, making Fire better in more diverse scenarios. While it is weaker against conditions, it can afford to fully channel the Water Overload to make up for this.
