"Feed a storm with savage intent and not even the strongest walls will hold it back."

Elementalists deal in all things elemental. They have access to conditional but powerful element damage bonuses, some granted periodically or with a skill requirement.

The purpose of this build is to do all endgame content on a budget. Including Shaper, Uber Elder, Hitting Level 100. As a result, this build needs speed, damage and survivability.

Leveling

Level with Freezing Pulse and get Frost Bomb at level 4 - smooth sailing until you get Storm Brand at level 12. While leveling you also to want to use another skill for more DPS against bosses - I recommend Blade Vortex.

First 47 Points

For Leveling you also want to pick up Flame Dash, Brand Recall and Arcane Surge ASAP in a 3L. This will help with mobility, mana regen and give you more damage overall. This is a permanent setup pretty much even deep into endgame until you get en Empower level 3. For Auras I just used Herald of Thunder and Wrath

At Level 28 you'll want to pick up a Lightning Spire Trap, helps single Target immensely. Run it in a 4L. More sockets you have while leveling more smoother this build becomes.

Links while leveling are

Storm Brand - Controlled Destruction - Elemental Focus - Added Lightning Damage

This is until level 31 where you get your Ascendancy first Ascendancy - Shaper of Desolation. At this point , replace Elemental Focus for Lightning Penetration. At level 38 you Replace Added Lightning Damage for Concentrated Effect.

Your new 4L at level 38 is

Storm Brand - Controlled Destruction - Concentrated Effect - Lightning Penetration

If you can get a 5L or 6L (Tabula Rasa) - You can do

Storm Brand - Controlled Destruction - Concentrated Effect - Lightning Penetration - Faster Casting - Added Lightning Damage

It's important to note this is the pure leveling setup. I personally take Hypothermia and Added Cold damage later on for survivability in maps.

Tree at 84 Points

This is pretty much the endgame tree. At this point you can decide what you want more, life, damage utility.

Tree at 105 Points

This is level 82. At this point pick what you feel like you need most.

Tree at Level 95 - 118 Points
