I use the following for just about anything (pve or pvp):
Mark of Rodgort
Glyph of Sacrifice
Glowing Gaze (optional)
Glyph of Restoration
Glyph of Restoration can help if you did not mean to activate Glyph of Sacrifice other than the usual healing. Just activate it and Glyph of Sacrifice is removed to prevent an terrible venue (i.e., 38 recharge on Glowing Gaze).
You may notice I do not have the pve only skills listed in the build. I do not use the Elementalist pve skills anymore from Luxon/Kurzick & Sunspear since they were nerfed to uselessness. You can get kicked out of a pug for having them. They just waste a slot. At least Glyph of Elemental Power gives +2 and cant be stripped. Man, what were they thinking for Intensity: 10 seconds now with a 45 second recharge??? Whatever. It was fine the way it was. When you see people boasting about how much damage a build can do, its always against 60 armor...thats the way it has been.
Anyone else notice a longer aftercast has been added once Glyph of Sacrifice has been activated followed immediately with a spell. Kinda defeats the purpose of casting a spell fast when you really need it. I happen to notice the change since the 17th update. SHOCKWAVE isnt acting like it was since the update either...
