An extremely powerful solo build for elementalist. Condi Tempest has decent burst, high DPS, and great survivability. This build does not perform great in a zerg due to a lack of good ranged options, but is a very solid roaming / solo build.
- Easy to play
- High DPS and defense
- Many build variants
- High utility
- Poor sustain
- Elementals disappear when you mount
- Some Variants rely heavily on Burning, which can be annoying against Destroyers or Fire Elementals
- Scepter for slightly more support through blast finishers and a ranged option . Drastically reduces damage output.
- Dagger offhand for more mobility.
- Focus for more survivability at the cost of damage.
- "极寒冰结！" or "天崩地裂！" - more defense and support for nearby allies.
- 风暴雕文 - AoE burst damage from 火焰风暴 or pulsing blind with 沙尘风暴.
- 秘法护盾 - breaks stun and blocks attacks.
- 风驰电掣 - for mobility.
- "炽火燎原！" - recommended when killing weaker mobs back to back (chain-farming)
- 炽焰巨剑 - high AoE damage on a long cooldown, mobility
- 致盲灰烬 - more Blind if having trouble with trash mobs.
- Ascended gear and stat infusions are not required; you can use exotic gear with the same stats.
This set offers the highest DPS but very little defense.
Against very hard content, Trailblazer gear can help smooth out your playstyle as it offers very high defense while keeping most of the DPS of Viper's.
This build is rather flexible due to its high reliance on Burning.

- Against any difficult fight, you want to pre-cast your 元素雕文 / 小型元素雕文
- Don't interrupt 龙蜥吐息. Attunement swapping will not interrupt it.

- Use 热力同步 any time you can work it into the rotation, preferably when you have 19+ Might already.

- Fill gaps in cooldowns with 巨龙之爪 and 通体穿刺.
- Constantly spam skills to get the benefit from 再生纹章

- 沙尘风暴 is a useful blind, very strong against groups of trash mobs.
- Your overloads break stun.
