Looks good enough, although it kinda requires either stupid foes or your team running a pretty good amount of snares / KD, as well as good coordination to get it on the right people. Besides that, you listed all the variants I would. Shido 18:09, 11 July 2007 (CEST)

Build:E/Me Savannah Heat tbh -Auron 03:49, 12 July 2007 (CEST)

For PvE purposes I can see using this build if you have a warrior/elementalist with a ward against foes on it, or another ele with deep freeze, but other than that i can't see as average pve mobs would stay in the area of effect. Though since in Normal Mode they stay in longer, it may be enough for a short ammount of time, but in Hard Mode I don't see this as being very effective. --Thomas Malakier

If I was ABing, I wouldn't bother with a resurection skill. I would personally go with Aura of Restoration so that I could avoid dying after taking some damage while capping, especially with necromancer degen spells. -05:46, 12 July , 2007 (PST) -Jayemji

I'd use Glyph of Restoration, but that is a matter of taste. I've also often replace Tenai's Heat with Breath of Fire since the cost dropped to 5, which allows me to experiment with the build a bit more since energy is almost a non-issue - like something odd like dropping Fire Attunement for Gaze of Contempt (very fun on enchant-heavy invinci-builds - I also ran a necro with Chilblains and Verata's which was a lot of fun for a while, but I haven't seen enough MMs or enchanters like Dervishes and Invincimentalists lately to make it worthwhile). 00:02, 13 July 2007 (CEST)

Replace Liquid Flame with Fireball - better for e-management and better damage. Vexed (Lazyrussian) 07:15, 12 August 2007 (CEST)

Huh? I use something similar to this for vanquishing =( Skakid9090 18:50, 12 July 2007 (CEST)
I have to agree with Skakid. I developed something similar back around Nightfall's release to farm LB points from Margonites and Demons, after ANet removed exhaustion from Searing/Tenai's Heat. Both kinds of monsters had skills that kept them in place for long periods of time, so kiting was minimal and casters would usually not move until they had 10% of their life remaining, if they moved at all. Then came the Hard Mode update, and suddenly every normal mode enemy is stupid. I find that this really combines well with a Minion Master, as the crush of bodies will hold even kite-prone warriors and dervishes in place long enough to get the full effect. GWEN PvE-only skills make this frighteningly deadly. SarielV 11:47, 6 February 2008 (EST)

Not convinced for CM, sorry

As AB has its own category, let's concentrate on CM - i.e. FA and JQ. In JQ you gotta cap shrines, kill enemy carriers and protect your own carriers. This build can only hope to accomplish the capping part. So - you got 6 (or 8) seconds of casting time to get your spells done. All the while being the center of attention of a bunch of bowmen or a bunch of mesmers, bowmen and elementalists. You can be happy, if you get most of your chain off before you die. And shrine NPCs do scatter after a while of getting undirected damage. Also you wanna get from shrine to shrine fast - I see no IMS skill on the bar. Running this in JQ is just bad, really - every enemy will own you in a direct confrontation and you have no way of running ... as for helpless NPC ... they usually have a not so helpless player around them and they usually will NOT let you have 8 seconds of leisure. Run it in JQ and you'll see it doesn't work. I see lots of eles doing JQ, but never one with this bar.

As for FA - having not too much experience there - but there is usually a lot of movement involved - and this defies the use of a location bound spell set. As Luxon for clearing shrines it might help - but once the action goes on inside the fort ... 19:35, 24 January 2009 (EST)

Shit blows up wherever you are. In FA on the Luxon side this destroys gate NPCS and Gunther/Purpie/Orange like Marilyn Manson on shrooms and on the kurz side it wrecks havoc on turtles/wars and between gates plus shrines. Nukes are good regardless in CM because there are so many shrines and also you could travel with a partner/group... N' while you're busy looking for faults in a build that really doesn't deserve it let's everyone else find a cure for cancer >.> ~ JujipooJujinicon.jpg talk 03:52, 8 February 2009 (EST)

Take out glyph and replace it, optional slot and res with "Make haste!", "Fall Back!" and (at least I do so) "Never Surrender!" Lower energy storage to 8+1 and put points into command. You can keep 2 juggernauts running faster almost all the time and can cap most shrines with SH+Rodgort. Swiftey 08:30, 24 May 2009 (UTC)

This an update. I have reconfigured the build to what I currently use. - Loki (the original poster of this)

Immolate fits better with mb, imo.. Oh and double heats own. Novii 15:13, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

You don't need 2 heats. Thats the thing. By the time you finish sh,meteor,and,rod shrine is capped. Not to mention you now have rodgort and immolate to use in battles. This build can do the same job the pvxwiki sh build can do but i can also focus fire on targets, which the current build cannot except to cast rod. - Loki (the original poster of this)

This is pretty much the standard ele in AB now. at least for luxon side since the map never changes. They need it to cap shrines and secure the walls. This kills shrines in 6 seconds, faster with 1/2 casts. Most groups need the speed boost, and its lol worthy when you solo someone with an AoE spike (it really does happen)

Better Variant for AB?

Savannah Heat Meteor Searing Heat Immolate Glowing Gaze Aura of Restoration Fire Attunement "Fall Back!"

"FB Nuker"

Fire Attunement Fire Attunement needs to be maintained... Protect it... Retreat from battle to cast and cover with Aura of Restoration Aura of Restoration.

Savannah Heat Savannah Heat or Searing Heat Searing Heat followed by Meteor Meteor... KD dudes in the middle of the over-time AoE.

Meteor Meteor KD the monk!

Immolate Immolate Focus on a singe foe.

Glowing Gaze Glowing Gaze Follow up the burning of Searing Heat Searing Heat or Immolate Immolate with single foe dmg and regain energy too.

"Fall Back!" Get you and your allies in the area movin'.

The hybrid build suggested here nukes well, solos, and also cleans up the leftovers, and whoops, is a bit more PvP focused than comparable shrine capping builds. --GeroWizhard 23:36, June 11, 2010 (UTC)

Tbh, I like the big heal of Glyph of Restoration Glyph of Restoration instead of Aura of Restoration Aura of Restoration, but you lose the cover. The tiny bit more energy provided by the aura is not needed with this build. -- 21:59, June 12, 2010 (UTC)

I tried this in RA

It sucked big time. But I could see where in AB this would DESTROY those idiot NPCs who just stand there. Again, against smart poeple, this build does nothing. Against NPCs, BOOM done.
