An excellent Core Elementalist build meant for roaming and zerging.
This bulid revolves around using your many area of effects, such as 炽热火球 to deal large splash damage to groups of mobs very quickly. This build offers a relatively relaxed playstyle, even in fast-paced groups, though in very fast zergs such as the Mad King's Labyrinth it can fall behind other builds. In cases where your tagging speed matters more than your raw DPS, the scepter tagging tempest build is recommended.
