Give ele an f5

I know that this has a 99.99999898% chance to be ignored by the people who can directly make a change to elementalist, but this is my idea:
Tempest f5: detonate auras
Weaver f5: unravel

    Core ele f5: uninstall.

    Too OP.
    Just a /gg on f5 should do the trick

    I've never felt the need to unravel... I'd rather have quickness on F5.
    Cant wait to get back home this weekend to try a jihad build.

  • How about detonate any aura on F5 for core ele in general ?

    That would prevent new specs from using the f5 key. OP's suggestion of Unravel for Weaver and Detonate for Tempest is perfect though.

    Why would there be a need for an F5 skill?

    Because this part of the spec mechanics is worthless 90% of the time because you have no way of actually using it. Adding an F5 would simplify and make it relevant and in turn even add some depth beyond "aura" and "only damage and nothing else"

    Smugly chuckling forever.
    My sentence doesn't make sense? Well, I probably forgot to write half of it before posting.

    Sounds like the kinda of thing an Elite would do.

    If we had any good elites, maybe.

    Weaver isn't a good Elite?

    This would solve my issues that I made a thread about https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/53520/aura-changes-issue-with-the-mechanic-blocking-another#latest
    (basically the detonation mechanic interferes with Cleansing Water Trait, Tempest Defense and Elemental Bastion when dealing with CC and Condition Removals + on demand heals/sustain for PvP environment, D/D)

    I suggested instacast detonation but this F5 for Tempest would also be a good solution.

    Not to brag, but I put together a puzzle in 4 days and the box said 2-4 years.
    Please allow team queue with rewards again at our own discretion

  • f5 for downstate lava font for optimal dps

  • The next elite spec will probably have an F5 ability.

    not good enough.

  • next elite spec better use a rifle.

  • This is actually a very good idea. Sadly a lot of the comments here seem to be from players who don't know the elementalist class and are confusing the OP's thoughts.

    Not sure how I feel about the F5 skill for tempest as they already have a strong elite mechanic in overloads, but I have always felt F5:Unravel should have been in the core mechanic of weaver. Unravel alone does not do enough to waste a utility slot.

    They just need to update some chose traits with realty boons like stab quickness and resistance even alacrity for core ele. F5 on ele not going to fix the core ele problems.
