Overview

Fresh Air Tempest relies on spamming Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (2)Overload Air and resetting its cooldown with Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (3)Fresh Air for both damage and Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (4) Alacrity. This, combined with its high damage AoE skills, makes it excel at killing adds and trash mobs. In addition, Tempest provides a lot of Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (5) Vulnerability, deals excellent burst damage on large hitboxes, and provides a unique damage buff to its party through Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (6)Overload Air's Static Discharge.

This build provides permanent Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (7) Alacrity, Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (8) Fury and Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (9) Swiftness. By default it only provides ~10 Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (10) Might and ~40% Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (11) Protection, but the rotation can be modified slightly to provide permanent uptimes of both at a small DPS loss.

Utility

Skill Variants

Healing

  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (12)Signet of Restoration provides good healing in low damage fights (i.e. fights where you never press your healing skill).
  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (13)Glyph of Elemental Harmony is the strongest personal heal.
  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (14)Ether Renewal if extra condition cleanse is needed.


Utility

As a support, you should be willing to trade DPS to bring group utility. Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (15)Glyph of Storms should be swapped out, as Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (16)"Feel the Burn!" is important for providing Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (17) Might:

  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (18)"Aftershock!" provides Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (19) Aegis to allies and pads your Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (20) Protection uptime.
    • Be aware that the magnetic aura applied by this ability can cause issues on some encounters.
  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (21)"Eye of the Storm!" provides Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (22) Stability and Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (23) Swiftness to allies.

Either of these skills will be helpful if there is a danger of being interrupted while in the middle of your overloads.

  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (24)Glyph of Lesser Elementals provides ~15 Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (25) Might stacks if summoned in Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (26)Fire Attunement, and deals comparable damage to Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (27)Glyph of Storms (see the usage section for more details).
  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (28)Conjure Lightning Hammer can be pre-cast in fractals then swapped to another skill for extra damage.


Elite

  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (29)Conjure Fiery Greatsword can be pre-cast in fractals then swapped to another skill for extra damage.
  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (30)"Rebound!" can be used to ignore certain mechanics that would otherwise down the group.

Specializations

  • You don't get much damage from Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (31)Arcane Precision, so it could be swapped to Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (32)Arcane Restoration if more survivability is desired.

  • This setup has 2218 precision.
  • Arcane and Tempest provide 28% boon duration for free, which is more than enough.

Equipment Variants

  • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (33)Sigil of Superior Sigil of Impact instead of Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (34)Sigil of Superior Sigil of Force on Keep Construct.
  • Using full Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (35) Berserker stats gear with would be a miniscule DPS gain.
    • With this setup, it is optimal to use 17 Mighty infusions and 1 Precise infusion.

Utility

Usage

The rotation below is for maximum damage, but if you are struggling with boon provision you can add a couple of extra steps (see below).

Rotation

Opening Burst

  1. Summon Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (36)Glyph of Elementals in Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (37)Fire Attunement before the encounter starts, and swap to Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (38)Air Attunement.
  2. Cast Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (39)Lightning Orb from afar then begin channeling Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (40)Overload Air. Ideally you time the cast to finish on top of the enemy the moment combat begins. If you aren't confident in pre-casting, you can use Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (41)Lightning Orb after Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (42)Overload Air instead.
  3. Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (43)Lightning Strike and Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (44)Flame Barrage during the cast of the skills above.


Loop

The rotation is very simple. After Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (45)Air Attunement, you switch to Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (46)Fire Attunement, use two skills, then return to Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (47)Air Attunement to overload and repeat.


Fire

  1. Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (48)Phoenix
  2. Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (49)Wildfire. If not available, use Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (50)Dragon's Tooth instead.
  3. Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (51)Air Attunement during the cast - we use the longer cast time skill second in order to spend as little time autoattacking in Air Attunement as possible.


Air

  1. Use whichever of the following cooldowns are available, otherwise just autoattack
    • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (52)"Feel the Burn!"
    • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (53)Lightning Storm
    • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (54)Lightning Strike - this has no cast time, so cast during other skills. You should be able to use it twice each time you're in air.
    • Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (55)Lightning Orb
  2. Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (56)Overload Air
  3. Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (57)Fire Attunement as soon as Overload Air finishes


Video example


Extra boons

Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (58)Heat Sync and Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (59)Sand Squall are not part of the default rotation, but can be included to increase your boon uptime. Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (60)Heat Sync significantly increases your Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (61) Might generation, and Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (62)Sand Squall provides Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (63) Protection as well as extending all boons by two seconds.

You could also provide extra Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (64) Protection by switching to Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (65)Earth Attunement after Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (66)Fire Attunement to trigger Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (67)Elemental Attunement, then immediately switch to Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (68)Air Attunement to not lose any time.


Fire elementals from Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (69)Glyph of Lesser Elementals provide a good amount of Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (70) Might while still dealing good damage. Compared to Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (71)Glyph of Storms, your burst damage will be lower, but this can be partly offset if you're able to precast multiple elementals during downtime. You also need to consider that the elementals themselves might be annoying to use as they can't be controlled.

Notes

  • Cast Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (72)Lightning Strike whenever it's available - it doesn't interrupt other channels.=
  • Step back from the boss before casting Build:Tempest - Alacrity Support Power DPS (73)Lightning Orb to maximize the hits you get from it.
