    Default 9ele/16am/41sc

    Spec: 9ele/16am/41sc
    At 1.4k SP I can get cloudburst to crit up to 2.5k on low valor, and 1.7k-2.k on high valor.

    ST Rotation: Raging Storm* > Ice Shear > Lightning Strike** > Cloudburst spam until target is dead.

    *Use Forked Lightning if Raging Storm is on CD. **Skip Lightning strike if target is at 50%- health.


    AoE Rotation: Hailstorm > Lightning Storm (FL if LS is on CD) > Lightning Field.


    CD burn for ST (after stacks of electrified are on): Absolute Zero > Static Discharge > Lightning Strike > Nenvin's Lament > Artic Blast.

    Default Failed on edit timer...

    AoE CD burn (after stacks of electrified are on): Static Discharge > Absolute Zero > Artic Blast > Lightning Field.

    Use RTW and other defence spells when needed.


    This is a squishy spec as it is all offensive.



    Why not take Lightning Burst? I think that spell isn't as good as it was without the valor changes. It still hits hard, but won't one - shot alot of people now like AB + SD + LS + CB will.

    **** lightning strike its a 2.5 sec cast and this spec doesn't have CC. Lightning burst however...i've crit 8k with on a player lol, so 44 SC 18 AM is better, since you also get hastened withdrawal. Hastened withdrawal + ride the wind = move like a mount.

    Lightning burst is also a 2.5 cast, and if it doesn't kill your target... you're screwed.

    Lightning burst is hitting for 5-6k on high-valor targets, and... yeah. 44 sc. anything less is just like, why?

    Also, it's 2.0 seconds, not 2.5.

    AB + SD + LS + CB isn't a one shot. I think you need to recheck your math there.

    Besides, if you want to get really technical the 44 build could AB + SD + LS + LB and due to travel time on the CB it will only take a second or so longer to apply the damage to the target, but will hit for much more.
