I am a babe in the woods here, as I have only been playing this game for about a month, and am having a difficult time finding updated information concerning builds for elementalist (well most classes, really, but that's another post) and have a few questions. Bearing in mind that I am NOT a calculator/formula type player, I need straight-forward guidance.
I am a mostly solo/PvE player, so I need to be able to handle mobs on my own. Because of this, I do not want to be directed to yet another support build, please. I don't want to be the best in the game, I don't strive to have all the best gear, and will probably avoid PvP as much as the game allows me to.
~Right now I am going all Power (using Staff) but I have been reading the debates on Toughness v. Vitality, and whether Tough is even necessary as much anymore. What do you think?
~Is there a combination, like defense on accessories and power on armor that will help me balance out being a marshmallow with wanting a bit more oomph?
~How bad is it that I have no desire to change elements, and stick strictly with Fire right now? It will probably change as I get more comfortable with the character...but if I stick with Fire only, am I holding myself back?
~I could use D/D for my alt weapon, but do you have a better suggestion for my playstyle?
I think that about wraps up my questions for ele build...thank you for any help and tips you can give me. I honestly appreciate it!
