Attributes and Skills Edit

<pvxbig> [build prof=e/rt Fire=12+1+3 Energy=12+1][Mark of Rodgort][Mind Blast][Fireball][Smoldering Embers][Rodgort's Invocation][Meteor Shower][Fire Attunement][Death Pact Signet][/build] </pvxbig>

Equipment Edit

  • Survivor Insignia
  • Three Fire Magic-tied headpieces; each with a Minor, Major or Superior Rune of Fire Magic, respectively (switch from Superior to Major and down to Minor if Death Penatly becomes a hindrance.
  • 20% Enchant mod (on a martial weapon or staff)
  • 20/20 HCT/HSR Fire Magic wand/offhand
  • +15e/-1 Wand/Offhand

Usage Edit

  • Cast Mark of Rodgort on a target.
  • Activate Mind Blast to recover energy from the Mark.
  • Cycle between Fireball and Smoldering Embers for fast-paced nuking; Fireball hits AoE, Smoldering hits a single target, both are powerful and recharge quickly.
  • Drop a Rodgort's Invocation on enemies as often as possible - the somewhat fast recharge and the unlimited energy from Mind Blast make this a deadly spell.
  • Unleash Meteor Shower on large mobs at the beginning of the fight to achieve maximum damage/knockdown effect.
  • Spam Mind Blast on targets between other spells, to keep energy up and to keep the targets burning.
  • Resurrect allies when necessary.

Counters Edit

  • Standard caster hate, i.e., daze/migraine
  • Mobs of Elementalists with lots of energy (more a problem in Hard Mode). Switch to your high set (+15e/-1) to keep gaining energy, even from other elementalists.

Variants Edit

  • Flesh of My Flesh instead of Death Pact Signet.
  • Searing Heat instead of Rodgort's Invocation; good in lower level PvE to deal greater damage, works in higher level PvE to break aggro/split mobs.
  • Liquid Flame instead of Smoldering Embers.
