Weapon sets:

  • Apply enchantments using your staff.
  • Cast air magic skills in your 40/40 set.
  • Switch to your high energy set when you run out of energy.
  • Switch to your shield set when you are idle or under attack.


  • Maintain Air Attunement and Elemental Lord in this sequence.
  • The combo is Echo->Intensity->Chain Lightning->Intensity. The Echo'ed Intensity should be used immediately after Chain Lightning finishes casting. This will cause two Intensities to proc on a single skill causing huge AoE (see demonstration).
    • There is a delay between the the targets that Chain Lightning hits, which allows for this strategy.
    • The first 3 skills should not be used except for the combo. It's worth the wait, unless you are killing off stragglers.
  • With reduced skill recharge (Essence of Celerity, Quickening Zephyr etc.) you could in principle get 3 intensities on a single chain lightning. This requires good timing.
  • Deal damage with Lightning Strike or interrupt burning foes with Teinai's Wind.
  • Cast Shock Arrow on foes suffering from cracked armor.


  • Frequent enchantment removal.
  • General caster hate.
