  • Survivor insignias.
  • Hale Staff of Fortitude (Health +60).
  • 15/-1 set.




  • Cast Arcane Echo followed by Meteor Shower twice for a devastating 'double-nuke' against stationary targets.
  • Replace Glyph of Sacrifice with Aura of Restoration for PvE.
  • Resurrection Signet for Dash if doing Alliance Battles or Competitive Missions.
  • In Heroes' Ascent players use a Mesmer secondary profession and replace Glyph of Lesser Energy with Mantra of Flame in case of encounters with other SF teams.
  • Replace Liquid Flame for Meteor or Gale if it fits the team build.
  • Since you have an open secondary profession, you may wish to include some other skills.
  • Replace Resurrection Signet for Resurrection Chant if the GvG build needs a hard resurrection skill.
  • Replace Glyph of Sacrifice with Mark of Rodgort - this will cause almost every SF to do damage AND reapply burning. SF = 3 secs cycle (faster with HCT+HRT wand+focus set) = MoR 4 sec burning reapplied before it runs out (MoR also synergizes with Meteor Shower). With multiple SF elementalists, MoR is not as useful - you only need one to carry it, the rest could run arcane echo or something else.
  • Use a HCT+HRT Fire Magic wand+focus set - this will increase your average DPS. Only switch to the +15/-1 if you are out of energy and need one or two more shots to finish something off.
  • An echoed SF = one SF every second ( or a bit faster with HCT/HRT set)- more damage than an echoed Meteor Shower but more energy used.
