Some early cTempest stuff

Build I used was: http://en.gw2skills.net/editor/?PGgEsEWGRGLppN1yu6akV6oa12SB-zRZYVBpYGSgc0Q9VXGdkAhUAaON743C-e
Left out my infusions and the two Cele trinkets were there cuz I'm lazy.

Hits for about like 20k+ish with allies but has respectable burst. Keep in mind all benches prior were done with banners/spirits/spotters/stuff so all bench damage is a bit lower rn. Performs pretty comfortably so far.

 

Ran it through 3 Fast 5s and some normal T4s so far, plus a w4 but I had to swap off in that to cover some roles I usually fill on other classes.

It feels really smooth to play. The constant feedback loop of Fire Overload to Earth Overload is really fun, and I fit in time to do my usual condi rotation too. Boons are really solid, with you providing a goddamn mountain of Might and being able to heat sink it all back up instantly after splits. Really good when with inexperienced HBs who struggled to do full Might all the time. Other boon time is also respective and the Alac uptime is just amazing.

 

I'd like less of a BD tax though. Something more like 40% or 50%ish so I could take more Viper's pieces would be nice.

 

Anyways here's some logs so you can see boon uptime and stuff. Had a lot of compliments running this and people were impressed, feels good repping my favorite Ele spec again. So far I'm pretty happy with this change and I like Tempest not being pigeonholded into just a heal spec.

EDIT: Updated to new buff. Still really early so I think BD can be pushed lower. Final bench will probably be in the area of like 28kish but I can't grind it out rn.

Then you come by pMech alac build that does same thing but with 25k-28k dps and then sadeness starts to kick in. 

Its been stated multiple time - you can get 20k dps alac tempest, but other classes with which you actually compete for a spot in group can do better. Thats the main problem.
