[Suggestion] Some Elementalist trait-line Rework.

Hello everyone,
This is my second post, I've played Elementalist and found it became more weird weak recently. Hence I just completed this thread in my free time. Hope A-net see some idea to make Elementalist more interesting and return it to good state again. Sorry for some of my bad grammar because English is not my mother language.

1. Elemental Auras
Enhance these auras to make them more impactful for Elementalist combat as follow:

  • Fire Aura: This aura has weak effect but it’s easy access for core Ele by both skills set and Fire traitline. So it just needs small tweaks to grant more use on not only Ele but also other professions as follow:


    Remove the ICD per attacker: Enveloped in a fiery shield that burns foes, grants might each time the bearers are struck.
    o Stacks of Might per struck: as same of the current (1)
    o Might duration: 5s (down from 10s)
    o Stack of Burning per struck: 2 (up from 1)
    o Burning duration: as same of the current (1s)
    o Stack-able duration: Fire Aura can stack duration to max 15s
    Therefore, Transmute Fire has changes to match more benefits of Fire Aura changes as follow:
    Increase stacks of Might and Burning base on remaining duration of Fire Aura: Use the remaining energy of the Fire Aura to cause an explosion, damaging enemies and benefiting allies.
    o Stacks of Might per second remaining: 1
    o Stacks of Burning per second remaining: 1
    o Might and Burning duration: as same of the current (6s)
    o Damage: as same of the current

  • Frost Aura: This aura needs huge tweaks to make more unique impact for on all professions. Hence It needs hard access for core Ele, so only Tempest traitline and specs skills can gain it. Also it identify more the benefit of combo blasting or leaping on Ice fields to gain Frost Aura. The changes are as follow:


    Adjust this old functions: Chill foes that strike you (only once per 1s for each attacker); incoming physical damage is reduced.
    o Chill duration per struck: as same of the current (2s)
    o Incoming physical damage reduced by Frost Aura: 10% (not affect condition damage anymore)
    o Frost Aura still can not stack duration
    Add more this function: Freeze status of conditions on the bearer which means current conditions on the bearer have their naturally current duration-freeze and functions-freeze, also means the bearer cannot be applied new incoming conditions
    Note: Therefore, this Frost Aura’s function doesn’t affect skills or traits with effect that reduce duration of current conditions or cleanse conditions such as Cleansing Water.

  • Shocking / Static Aura: Same as Frost Aura. Rename to Impulse Aura


    Adjust functions: Stun foes with an electric shock, also remove a condition on the bearer when the bearers are struck (only once per 1s for each attacker).
    o Stun duration: 1s (down from 2s)
    o Conditions removed: 1
    o Impulse Aura still can not stack duration

  • Magnetic Aura: This aura has niche use and need Earth traitline change to commonly access for core Ele trait. So it need a fair tweak.


    Keep this old functions: Reflect projectiles with magnetic energy. Magnetic Aura still can not stack duration.
    Add more a function: Draw a boon on nearby attacking foes to the bearer (only once per 1s for each attacker).

2. Attunement
Remaining your main hand which attuned to an element grants to you benefit of that element. Every second after attuned to an element grants to you a stack of that element effect. Gain max 15 stacks (spend 14s in, the first stack apply when attuning to), each stack grants benefits as follow:

  • Stack of Fire: add 0.5% physical damage increase and 10 bonus point of Condition damage attribute.
  • Stack of Water: add 7 bonus point of Power attribute and 1% healing effectiveness increase.
  • Stack of Air: add 1% rate chance of critical hit and 7 bonus point of Ferocity attribute.
  • Stack of Earth: add 1% physical damage taken reduction and 15 bonus point of Expertise attribute.
    Note: Stacks of an element can only gain (by some ways) while your main hand attuning or attuned to that element. Stacks of an element end immediately or in very short delay after your main hand swapped out that element. Only stack of Fire can linger after your main hand swapped out Fire attunement through Fire trait line.

Therefore, rework trait-line as bellow:

3. Fire Trait line

  • Minor adept:

    • Wise Flame: New trait (Empowering Flame trait icon): Empower you up with mystic of Fire whenever equipped Fire trait line. Gain greatly more stacks of Fire when your main hand attuning to Fire. Might also now grant to you an addition Healing power bonus per it’s stack.

      o Trait ICD 7s
      Note:
      This trait’s ICD is to prevent you trigger trait as fast as the second attune to same element which making trait overpower. It’s for trigger as your will after 7s but you want to keep stacks of Fire so your main hand must reamain attuning to Fire.
      Bliding Flare strikes the targeted foe within a radius of 900 while doing nothing without a target as same function as Electric Discharge trait.
      “one of your hands attuning to” means this function work as the second time you attuning to the same element as weaver and does not mean this function will work as your main hand swapping out of an element to active attunement to other elements which let old attunment moving to your off-hand as weaver.

  • General
    Add F5 mechanic as Shout type: named “Tempest!”
    Tempests imbue themselves with powerful elemental blessing sound in their voice then release it with a shout as “Tempest!” Stunbreak for themselves and transmute all elemental auras they had. Each auras dotonated reduce this skill cooldown by 5s.

    o No animation
    o Break stun upon cast
    o Transmute all elemental auras you had
    Note: Elemental auras: Fire Aura, Frost Aura, Discharge Aura, Magnetic Aura

  • Shout type Skills
    Adjust some Shout skills, make all of Shout utilities have no animation to allow using them even you’re under controlling effect. Therefore:

    • “Feel the Burn!” reduce its CD to 20s and its CD stays the same as in all gamemode. The other effects remain as the current. No animation.
      This Shout is weak so it need shorter CD to make it more useful.

    • “Flash Freeze!” increase its CD to 35s and its CD stays the same as in all gamemode. Hence add a effect to match with its increasing CD: reveal foes it hit for 3s. The other effects remain as the current. No animation.
      This Shout is only utinility that help Elementalist and their allies to gain Frost Aura which got big unique buff so it needed increasing its CD.

    • “Eye of the Storm!” increase its CD to 55s and its CD stays the same as in all gamemode. Hence add a effect to match with its increasing CD: also daze foes in it’s radius for 1s. The other effects remain as the current. No animation.
      Because of effect change of Gale Song trait listed as below which make this Shout strong in niche use so it needed increasing it’s CD.

    • “Rebound” increase its CD to 90s and its CD stays the same as in all gamemode. Rework its function as below:


       The bearer who has already had this shout effect will expire the previous naturally first when applying new one.
       Remove the function which gain aura based on your current attunement when “Rebound!” expire naturally and replace it as follow: Now gain all elemental auras when “Rebound!” expire naturally.
       Now when it take lethal damage it also removes all conditons on the bearer.
       Each allies is save from leathal damage by your “Rebound!” will decrease CD of your “Rebound!” by 5s

    Wow, you really put in some effort. Thanks for that!

    I didn't read through everything, but some ideas are rather appealing (making cleanses for tempest independant from water, tempest aura focussed), others not so much (tempest needs no F5). Some are also a little overpowered, but I guess you wanted to overexaggerate (80% barrier increase).

    Maybe I will read a little more, but honestly, I fear it's too much for mee and for Anet as well. :tongue:

    Thanks for your comment. Yea, I focus cleansing and healing on auramancer line and also increase on other line as overloading or shouts, want to make Tempest able to be more offensive or defensive.
    I guess some rework trait are too overpowered by their own and some are more overpowered when combine with others but (hope) if anet make them come real, they can just adjust them to balance. As you fear, I afraid it not because of much resources but little rewards for Anet.

    Some very cool ideas and I like how you widen the scope of each Attunement. Gotta agree on some of them being overtuned (not only number-wise but also too many situational proccs).

    One note on the Fire Aura: Don't create different functionalities among effects that should work the same. It's confusing and creates balancing issues. Either all Auras should stack or none. Same for ICDs.

    Thanks for your comments. I wanted to make each aura unique different from each other. But i think your opinions right . Maybe they just needed tweaking numbers of their current functions and able to stack.duration.
