Do we really need this Dead Pact Signet Faggotry? I mean, we should be changing all X/Anys to X/Rt then but it doesnt really make sense. Asdfg 10:56, 23 August 2007 (CEST)
you could change if you want something worse, sure. i'd rather post the best way to run the build — Skakid9090 11:04, 23 August 2007 (CEST)

This run for PVP too? I seems like a well pvp nuker build.

For Heroe's

For a Hero, you only need Mind Blast, Rodgort's Invocation, Fire Attunement, and the rest are really not needed. But a res would be handy. This way, a Hero will use his uber spamming skills with Mind Blast (and you want this) and Rodgort's Invocation (and you want that too!). When fireball and liquid flame are also enabled for a hero, he'll use those too, and will never be able to keep his energy high enough to keep Mind Blast providing energy.

Mind Blast Rodgort's Invocation Fire Attunement Glyph of Elemental Power Optional Optional Optional Optional

You could use the optional skills for a res, interrupts. Just make sure you don't add spells that a Hero could use too often, because that would damage himself more than his oppenents Xilconic 12:23, 5 February 2008 (EST)

Regarding Rapta's Vote

See what I mean? Everyone adds their own gay shit they think is pretty neat and it totally fucks up overseight. Just make a general E/Any and add your shit in variants. Not this secondary class faggotry. And here is it btw. http://pvx.wikia.com/wiki/Build:E/P_PvE_Mind_Blast_Elementalist Asdfg 04:02, 27 August 2007 (CEST)

it's infinitely better in pve to have a res then to not have one — Skakid9090 04:04, 27 August 2007 (CEST)
Yeah, but just use a Ressurrection Signet before we start to equip all X/Any with DPS and every PvE general build that has a secondary class with Sunspear Rebirth Signet. Asdfg 04:07, 27 August 2007 (CEST)

PvXwiki is not the wiki for a select few. PvXwiki is the wiki for builds. A place for someone to say "I'm looking for a PvE build for my hero or whatever that does damage using this or whatever or blah blah blah." Oftentimes, people are retards. They can't figure out for themselves that "If I drop a paragon secondary, I can fit more damage skills and thusly this particular method of resurrection! ZOMG!". People are idiots.

Variants

I think you should add Intensity into the variants it would be helpful, and glyph of concentration. 24.238.94.19 16:11, 29 August 2007 (CEST)

My preferred version of this type of build is this:

Mind Blast Rodgort's Invocation Liquid Flame Searing Heat Meteor Shower Glyph of Sacrifice Fire Attunement Optional

71.185.72.232 22:20, 6 September 2007 (CEST)

Cynn's build in GWEN

Just a little comment to let you know that this build is exactly the one used by Cynn in the GWEN campaign. So, if you don't want to waste a hero slot while playing solo, just pick her. 81.255.58.6 16:07, 9 October 2007 (CEST)

can we change that please? there is no reason to list a secondary profession just for a perma rez. its very confusing to players trying to find a build that fits their needs.--Coloneh 23:32, 22 November 2007 (CET)

I have to 2nd that. There is nothing on the main page to explain why Rt is the secondary. The optional slots cotain more nuking spells, etc. 69.179.142.124 04:21, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

imo better version

Fire Attunement Glyph of Elemental Power Mind Blast Meteor Shower Rodgort's Invocation Energy Blast Intensity Optional

Optional spot at end for generic resuruect. rebirth screws you over for energy makeing mind blast into an elite flare, but if your fighting warriors, you can target them as soon as you have 25 energy (20 w max + 5 for mind blast) to charge fast. skill chain would be glyph of ele power then fire attune before bettle for a few extra seconds of fire attune, then glyph of ele power right before you engage. let tank take aggro, then MS and rodgort for a good AoE spike. then intensity, 2 mind blasts and energy blast (161 armor ignoring damage anyone?. i use this to nuke in the underworld and fissure of woe regularly. works wonders. last FoW trip i was on we had 4 people ragequit cause our tank was getting shards like nuts (he had 6 by the end of the 2nd quest) so we were down to 3 nukers (a water ele using pins), a sandstorm earth ele and me) the tank, and our bond monk. we still managed to clear both the servants of menzies quest and the wailing lord, as me and the earth ele were able to pull enough damage out to kill mobs before they could do serious damage to the tank. however, even as the version posted on the build page, this build rocks. the only build with better energy management (excluding earth ele's with mantra of earth and stone striker) are warriors using all adreniline skills ^^ -TehBuG-

Yeah I'm really doubting how effective as a high damage output this is, it doesn't have high down time, but it isn't really "spamable", so low recharge isn't making up too much for average damage output... it doesn't seem completely capable in HM (energy management is fine though)Blight 10:52, 29 September 2008 (EDT)

I'm gonna remove Splinter Weapon from the list of optionals, as the build currently has no points in channeling magic and the only real slack is to take it from restoration magic. This yields a max of 2 attacks and 14 damage, which is pretty useless and wastes time that could be spent spamming damage spells. Alternatively you could reduce fire or energy storage but that goes against the spirit of the build.--Chump Chief 17:13, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Since this change got reverted, I'd like to see an explanation of how it could be used effectively in this build.--Chump Chief 17:43, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Ditch 2 or 3 ES and put points in Channeling. Duh. Wars have 20 energy. You can easily have more than that. Just use Mind Blast properly and you'll do fine. --- VipermagiSig -- (contribs) (talk) 17:59, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Maybe if you want to call that a variant, but again that takes time away from casting damage spells and transforms the role from nuker to nuker/support hybrid. At the very least there should be a note next to it in the build giving some indication of how to change the build to accommodate it. (Also, you have to ditch at minimum 4 points in ES and 1 from restoration)--Chump Chief 18:18, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Mind Blast's energy return

Ok, votes have been popping up regarding MB's effectiveness in HM. If you are running full attunements + radiants + high set, you will have 113 energy, or more depending on cons, and other things. without the high set, say you are using a +15 energy staff, you still have a solid 98 energy. even without the radiant and attunement runes, you have 84 energy (i think that's the right number). that is enough to be more than most monsters anywhere, especially warriors. This is good, because warriors take the most hits anyway, meaning you can nuke them for LONGER (thus hitting other monsters with AoE) while keeping your energy higher through MB spamming. there is no basis to say that MB won't be able to keep your energy up. if you are running low, switch to your high set. easy enough. --Tai Sig 09:22, 21 January 2009

ele attune is only good for heroes that suck at using mb. player bars will always have utility that isn't fire magic, so ele attune won't help in the least. -Auron 05:19, 22 January 2009 (EST)
I suppose. Though hero eles mostly have enough energy with gole and gg anyway. PikaFan19x19px 05:24, 22 January 2009 (EST)
on players who can distinguish targets its ace energy management, but heros will follow your called targets - which (called targets) hopefully dont start with the warriors when engaging enemies. And at full energy of say 110 you cast rodgorts and end up with 94e (or so with attunment) then if your hero dosent use mind blast you energy drops some more and you now on around 80 energy which will be less than many caster foes in hard mode (foes have 5 pips of energy regen). Its clearly a good build Im not saying it sucks or anything of the sort im just saying in my opinion (as someone who only really does hard mode stuff) its not that useful. and nuking warriors is all good and well but they will probably only be standing next to other warriors and dervishes which an enemy monk can often keep alive with ease in HM Xiay 08:27, 22 January 2009 (EST)

moo

"Removed:

less than flare dmg and some very good energy management from mind blast. Not so amazing in my opinion. I find non elites (insperation magic or GoLE) are more than good enough and open up the elite for some more serious damage.

In Hard Mode, foes - especially bosses - have more energy and this is where energy management is very important, and where mind blast will not work.

Reason: moo Removed by: Ibreaktoilets"

1. what kind of a reason is moo? 2. I rated it 3 - sure that doesn't go with the majority but i believe the majority is wrong most of the time - I gave clearly laid out reasons for my vote. 3. Why do perfectly good votes (not just mine) get removed just because they don't follow the majority? seems to defeat the point of voting.

Noob Question abt MB

I dont really understand how MB is apparently such a great e-managing spell. So...it costs 5 energy to cast while returning 8 energy..that's only 3 nrgy returned? And with a 1 second cast time and 2 second recharge thats not really spammable (although my definition of spammable is 1 sec recharge el oh el oh el.) Im sure someone's going to make a cutting remark for my ignorance, but I really want to know what doesn't make MB a (quote unquote) meh elite. 64.229.223.221 12:52, 28 January 2009 (EST)

Count how much it does in energy regeneration with attunement, and it's free damage. ---Chaos- TheDentist 13:10, 28 January 2009 (EST)

I dont like MB in PvE, you wont get high energy returns from most mobs untill some time into the battle and you damage is not armor ignoring so dont mention damage when speaking about MB.
I used MB with MoR to fuel Necrosis because it deals armor ignoring damage... --Anonimous. D: 15:34, 28 January 2009 (EST)
I studied this spell once I capped it. My results were; #1 Heros do not use this skill very well. Although hero AI is different per user, mine did not preform acceptable on any account. #2 With proper delivery, it has very good energy regain. i.e a 40/40 Weapon set, and Fire Attunement make this skill nearly as spammable as flare, with energy gain as good as 5 pips. #3 The damage from this skill, even when spammed is nothing extraordinary, but helps distract monks in PvP. Combined with Mark of Rodgart, the Burning condition is repeatedly spread causing quite a annoyance for the party monk. #4 This skill is best used in PvP, not in PvE; the damage is not enough to matter in PvE, but is unnerving in PvP, especially when combined with conditions.68.13.239.149 02:54, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Why is this E/Rt?

Lose FomF and make it generic. There is no reason to take FomF over a monk res in pve if you're not limited by secondary. 99.242.229.12 21:13, 6 June 2009 (UTC)

I have noticed that FomF, or other ridiculous hard resses on non-healer builds, and i find it idiotic...when.... vengance, will suit the need perfectly, and when the team is down and needs a perma res, leave it to the monks AFTER the battle. I ALWAYs replace FomF or any other res from a NON-HEALER hero, with Vengance, because it is SUPPOSED to be used mid-battle, sure it has a 30 second recharge, but if you are NOT in charge of healing, slap it on 3 heros and goto town, your party, if occurs multiple deaths, will be revived and alive FULL HP + ENERGY, and doing 25% more dmg! and after the battle, you can perma res them. Just some points i have noticed that work alot better than stupid rt res's, and for wiki builds, I prefer them to be Ele/any because not everyone has Factions, and the template code is useless if it is ele/rt then. 68.13.239.149 02:39, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
Lol, wall of fail. An ally dropping dead in the middle of battle because you used an loltastic res is baed. And wiki holds the most optimized builds; if you don't have a certain skill, then you make your own variant. You don't make an inferior build simply so it doesn't have to use skills from a certain campaign. --JaiGoesMonksassinMonksassin-icon 03:17, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Variants

Death Pact Sig, for FomF is silly, on HM Death Pact is just asking to aid in party wipe. In my experience Death Pact has caused more party wipes, than it has saved from. I also have noticed that non-healer heroes tend to use their Res's in mid-battle, making Death Pact highly dangerous, and FomF also painful. In retrospect, I believe that "Vengeance" should be added to the Variants, because it is very useful in mid-battle, when most heroes use their Res's. If this build is used on a player, instead of a hero, then the dangers of using FomF, and Death Pact are better judged, and are less dangerous than silly AI, but are still there! I always bring Vengeance, instead of a ignorant RT res. Amen. 68.13.239.149 03:02, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

If you don't want them to res, you disable and micro it. You don't bring a terrible res to compensate. I always bring a real res such as FomF, DPS, or Res Chant, instead of something that's only going to make me wipe faster. Amen. --JaiGoesMonksassinMonksassin-icon 03:20, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
I agree that DPS isn't that great of an option for HM but, tbh, if you're dying too much you're doing something wrong. FomF is the best rez for a hero to take in pve(exception might be a mesmer or soemthing). LifeWikiLOD7 03:39, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
