Variations

  • For split build replace Resurrection Signet with Shell Shock or a snare (hex/ward or Harrier's Grasp- Earth Prayers 6 and Wind Prayers 5). Replace Fleeting Stability with Windborne Speed/Storm Djinn's Haste if faster movement is required.
  • Adjust Energy Storage and Earth Prayers according to taste and Flux.

Equipment

  • 40/40 Air set
  • Fast cast mid energy (+15 energy) air set (fast cast usually better than fast recharge).
  • High energy set
  • Defensive sets
  • Either full Sentry's, Aeromancer's, or Prismatic Insignia (make fire 8+1 if you choose prismatic)
  • Mid-energy Swift Energy Storage Staff of Enchantment/Adept Air Staff of Enchantment.
  • Rune of Restoration (for split builds).
  • Crippling Bow and Spear (for Harrier's Grasp build).

Usage

  • Cancel-cast Second Wind 4-5 times before the fight breaks out in order to build up overcast which will provide synergy with Lightning Strike and Second Wind itself. Try not to build more than 30-40 overcast but you should be fine as long as your maximum energy is 20+. If the fight drags on too long, or you're experiencing heavy pressure/high energy denial then eventually you'll end up stacking more overcast and will have to change to the mid or high energy set.
  • Teinai's Wind should always be used with Glyph of Immolation to interrupt targets and deal triple damage.
  • Pious Concentration should be maintained vs teams with rangers and mesmers. If the enemy has a warrior or anyone with knockdown keep Fleeting Stability off-CD to be available when needed, otherwise use it to fuel PC by providing an enchant it can remove.
  • Burst with Glyph + Lightning Strike + a well timed Lightning orb that should hit when the 2nd part of LS goes off. On a monk follow up with Teinai's Wind to prevent them from reacting to your burst while also delivering more pressure.
  • Switch to Staff of Enchanting when casting Fleeting Stability for running, or when you want to try for a fast recharge/fast cast on Second Wind.

Counters

  • Bad energy/cast management.
  • Power Block - although Pious Concentration prevents the interrupt, you'll be locked out from that shcool of spells and the skill you were casting will fail in the end.
  • Aneurysm, Complicate, Power Lock (and other skills that disable and not just interrupt), Signet of Humility, Arcane Languor.
