The Feb 26th update brought several nerfs and a fix to D/D Elementalist:
- Ride the Lightning: This ability’s recharge has been increased to 20 seconds (previously: 15 seconds)
- Soothing Disruption: Vigor and regeneration boons granted by activating cantrips have been reduced from 10 seconds to 6 seconds.
- Zephyr’s Boon: Fixed a bug that caused Shocking Aura to apply double the boons of other auras.
In this video, I discuss my adjustments to these changes:
- Kiting with a decreased emphasis on Ride the Lightning, given that RTL’s cooldown has been increased from 15s to 20s
- Stacking boon duration to 90% (1.9x), to help offset the shortened durations of the boons from cantrips and auras
Thanks to GW2 BuildCraft’s calculator, I can share my complete WvW setup:
My spec is based on daphoenix’s most excellent guide on “Tanky DPS” Dagger/Dagger Ele:
