Re: GW2: Elementalist Thread BTW here's a post about using staff to achieve a ton of swiftness. Sav, you said over gchat you get 45% with daggers, how sustainable is that? Which skills?
There are a bunch of ways to get Swiftness as an Elementalist and when you're low level it's really useful to be able to move around rather quickly between events and everything.
You need: A Staff and (optionally) Arcane Wave
Glyph of Elemental Harmony gives 10s Swiftness when casted in Air attunement.
Windborne Speed (Staff #4, Air) gives 10s Swiftness.
Static Field (Staff #5, Air, Combo Field: Lightning) -> Arcane Wave (Blast Finisher) gives 10s AoE Swiftness. This can also be done with Eruption, but it's just not nearly as smooth and then you run into issues with attunement cooldowns (which would lower your Swiftness uptime).
25, 30 and 40s CD respectively. Over 125s you have 120s of Swiftness. Remember, they all stack in duration so just keep casting them all the time.
I don't use swiftness, it was the trait bonus from air, tier 1 (both slots) and signet of air.
Jobbie told me to keep my signature the same. This is me rebelling.
