Elementalist Themes and Combat Roles
The elementalist remains true to its roots from the original Guild Wars a pure caster profession that utilizes different elements to deal damage to their enemies and support their allies. Guild Wars 2 Gold. Thinking on the Guild Wars analogy, the Guild Wars 2 elementalist is like an e/mo or elementalist/monk, thanks to the heavy focus on healing with the water element. The conversion was also a very literal one, with many of the same skills and the overall playstyle following along in the transition. However, don’t fret, there is a lot more to the elementalist than casting Fire Storm, thanks to the attunement system.
