* Use [[Glyph of Lesser Energy]] whenever possible to assist your energy.

* Use [[gw:Glowing Gaze|Glowing Gaze]] after [[gw:Searing Flames|Searing Flames]] for more spammage.
* Cast [[Meteor Shower]] on a bunched up group of players/NPCs to cause panic.
+
* Use [[gw:Liquid Flame|Liquid Flame]] while [[gw:Searing Flames|Searing Flames]] recharges.
* [[Resurrection Signet]] for fallen allies.

* When using [[gw:Meteor|Meteor]] or [[gw:Meteor Shower|Meteor Shower]] be sure to pay attention to exhaustion
* Disruption is a major problem, Searing Flames is your key skill and if it's gone so is most of your damage.
 
* Anti-caster spells: [[Backfire]], [[Diversion]] etc.
 
* [[Frigid Armor]] and [[Avatar of Melandru]] will prevent burning being applied, however this is not a big threat as they are uncommon skills for the most part.
 
* [[Signet of Humility]].
 
* [[Mantra of Flame]].
 
* [[Protection Prayers]] ([[Protective Spirit]] in particular).
 
* This build is easily countered by the opposing team spreading out.
 
* [[Arcane Languor]] + [[Equinox]]
 
== Variants ==
 
* Cast [[Arcane Echo]] followed by [[Meteor Shower]] twice for a devastating 'double-nuke' against stationary targets.
 
* Replace [[Glyph of Sacrifice]] with [[Aura of Restoration]] for PvE.
 
* [[Resurrection Signet]] for [[Dash]] if doing Alliance Battles or Competitive Missions.
 
* In [[Heroes' Ascent]] players use a [[Mesmer]] secondary profession and replace Glyph of Lesser Energy with [[Mantra of Flame]] in case of encounters with other SF teams.
 
*Replace [[Liquid Flame]] for [[Meteor]] or [[Gale]] if it fits the team build.
 
*Since you have an open secondary profession, you may wish to include some other skills.
 
**[[Serpent's Quickness]] can be used for decreased recharge times.
 
**For condition removal, use [[Mending Touch]].
 
**You can use [[Arcane Echo]] if you need to, for increased spamming of skills.
 
*Replace Resurrection Signet for [[Resurrection Chant]] if the GvG build needs a hard resurrection skill.
 
*Replace [[Glyph of Sacrifice]] with [[Mark of Rodgort]] - this will cause almost every SF to do damage AND reapply burning. SF = 3 secs cycle (faster with HCT+HRT wand+focus set) = MoR 4 sec burning reapplied before it runs out (MoR also synergizes with Meteor Shower). With multiple SF elementalists, MoR is not as useful - you only need one to carry it, the rest could run arcane echo or something else.
 
*Use a HCT+HRT Fire Magic wand+focus set - this will increase your average DPS. Only switch to the +15/-1 if you are out of energy and need one or two more shots to finish something off.
 
* An echoed SF = one SF every second ( or a bit faster with HCT/HRT set)- more damage than an echoed Meteor Shower but more energy used.
