- 15Nature's GuardianStone Bulwark TotemAstral Shift
Natures Guardian provides a passive health proc has a very low cooldown and can reliably provide you time to save yourself when you need it the most.
Stone Bulwark Totem provides a moderate shield, but is generally less useful than Natures Guardian for preventing your death. The totem can easily be killed and the shield wasted.
Astral Shift provides an extremely strong defense against burst damage, but the long cooldown makes it difficult to use in PvP fights. The short cooldown of Natures Guardian will usually provide more overall damage mitigation.
- 30Frozen PowerEarthgrab TotemWindwalk Totem
Frozen Power provides an additional root, but is generally less useful than other talents in this tier, which provide more overall utility to your team.
Earthgrab Totem offers a potent area root, which is a solid choice in PvP. This talent makes an acceptable alternative to Windwalk Totem when facing primarily melee opposition.
Windwalk Totem grants immunity to movement impairing effects in a large area. It is almost always helpful to be able to remove movement impairing effects from your team.
- 45Call of the ElementsTotemic PersistenceTotemic Projection
Totemic Persistence is the least useful talent of this tier. The ability to summon multiple totems of the same element is generally not as useful as the utility provided by competing talents.
Totemic Projection allows you to quickly relocate your totems. This talent provides an overall boost to your mobility and allows you to quickly relocate your position in fights that require frequent movement.
- 60Elemental MasteryAncestral SwiftnessEcho of the Elements
Elemental Mastery allows for a high amount of burst damage. This talent is viable, especially if you are on a team that relies on burst damage for victory. However, the general utility of this talent falls a bit behind Ancestral Swiftness.
Ancestral Swiftness offers the ability to instantly cast a damage or healing spell is extremely helpful in any PvP situation.
Echo of The Elements provides a mostly passive boost to damage and healing. The passive proc does not allow for the same level of burst damage or control provided by the competing talents.
- 75Rushing StreamsAncestral GuidanceConductivity
Conductivity increases the duration of Healing Rain when you use certain abilities. This talent is difficult to use and often provides less healing than the other options in this tier.
- 90Unleashed FuryPrimal ElemntalistElemental Blast
Elemental Unleashed Fury provides a strong damage boost to your primary abilities, while being easier to use in combat than the competing talents in this tier.
Primal Elementalist provides a strong elemental pet, but your elemental can be killed or controlled, causing you to sometimes waste a major cooldown ability.
- 100Elemental FusionStorm Elemental TotemLiquid Magma
Liquid Magma empowers your fire totem to deal additional damage to random enemies.
Major Glyphs are all highly situational. Your Glyph choices will largely depend on your team and class composition.
