Elementalist Condition Build PVP Theorycrafting
The practical application for this setup falls short however, at least for sPVP which is my primary interest and all I'm seeking to test at this time. The main issue is against skilled players you just cant build up bleeds quickly enough, especially when they have condition removal. And although churning earth may look nice, the chances to use it effectively in ranked sPVP will be rare and with large opportunity cost (sitting duck for 5s)
One can still be effective with this build in sPVP since the power is still relatively good, but you trade all of your crit away. And this specific build has a lot of emphasis on bleeds and I chose this since they can stack, but the skills that apply bleeds can't really utilize the potential of the stacked duration. I may test a burn oriented condition spec next time since it would probably synergize better with DPS output in fire.
One cavaet to this critique is that I didn't put a lot of time testing the build in combat and I personally tend to have more success with burst based builds so if you're already having success as a condition ele, give this build a shot and let me know what you think. Or if you have other builds you know do well I'd love to hear about them.
More vids as I have time. Some are already uploaded.
