GW2. Best Open World Build. Scepter Warhorn Tempest. Elementalist PvE.
Last Update: December 2023
A mostly Air focused elementalist build for open world, the Fresh Air Tempest has massive area of effect spells, single target burst, and great defensive utilities to keep them alive.
The Fresh Air trait allows you to incur the 20 second cooldown from Overloading Air Attunement but recharge it the instant you crit outside of Air Attunement. This enables you to spam Air Overload as many times as you want in a much faster window of time.
Use Warhorn Earth 5 or Glyph of Storms in Earth Attunement to blind enemies and make handling larger groups much easier.
Warhorn Air 4 > 5 > Air Overload > 2/3
Swap to: Fire for more damage, Water for more healing, Earth for blinds and protection
Water 2 > 3 > 4 > 5 > 2 > 3 > (Water Overload for more cleanse and heal) Swap to Air
Earth 5 > 4 > 2 > 3 > 2 > Swap to Air
Fire 5 > 2 > 3 > Swap to Air
Repeat using Air Overload and swapping out to recharge Air Attunement again
Use Glyph of Elements in Water and activate it for more self healing, or in Fire for more damage. “Aftershock!” or Earth Overload should be used early on to give you Protection and to Immobilize enemies in place for your damage combos.
