Dragon Nest SEA- Level 50 Elestra Skill Build Analysis [T4]
Welcome back for another Skill Build Analysis by TEGaming
This time it will be the Elestra Skill Build that Lyzbeth will be using.
For those wondering whether to choose Saleana or Elestra, the decision can be made simple by deciding if you’re a party/supportive player versus liking raw damage.
Elestra’s are sliding towards the end of providing very good support for your party while still doing decent DPS.
To have an idea of what i’m talking about watch this video where we showcase how Elestra can help support a party’s DPS in a 2-man Archbishop Nest run
The build that Lyzbeth is going for is thus known as “Salestra” meaning being an Elestra for ice spear (skill that allows for repeatable freezing of monsters) while still getting fire skills like flame road.
With that idea in mind let’s check out her Level 50 Skill Build below
Points to note:
Inferno has been nerfed in terms of DPS for PVE so she got it to level 6 because of the increased range and she PVPs quite abit.
She has both Fireball Level 11 and Level 6 flame road to make up the “Sal” part of the “Salestra”
For those who mentioned that “Salestra” don’t go for ice shield or chilling mist, Lyzbeth went for Ice shield as I’ve mentioned earlier that she PVPs quite a bit, so the extra change to freeze your opponent with Ice shield is what she wanted as compared to fire shield.
So you can entirely miss the who ice side of the tree (aside from Freezing Sword) and go down the fire tree to unlock fiery vortex and blizzard altogether which also another alternative.
Though Cooldown for Shatter has been greatly lowered for PVE, she left it at 1 because for simple nests even for archbishop, there isn’t much opportunity to cast it and increasing the level for shatter does not increase how much your target is slowed.
For the sorceress tree, she has level 16 glacial spike and level 6 poison.
Level 6 poison spray is for the 3 puddles of poison instead of 2. The casting animation for poison has been shortened, hence if you’re a pvper, this is definitely a must to get.
The rest is pretty standard.
I believe this build is a competitive build to have if you want to provide some DPS for your party while still able to support
You also do not need 17.8k critical because with hellfire as most of your DPS comes from your Fire skills.
You will simply need a base crit of around 10000 and you will be fine with level 50 monsters.
With that, Let’s take a look at the possible Level 60 build that is built up from here.
Glacial Spike at Level 20 provides 25% freezing chance which is definitely very very good.
Main DPS skill Flame Road is at level 9 (know that skills scale at lvl6,9,11 and 16 for T4 which is why it’s not Level 10)
Similarly chilling mist is at level 9 for the same effect.
Glacial Wave at Level 9 and Ice shield is maxed.
I wouldn’t recommend going Pure Ice even if you’re going PVP.
Ice skills don’t generally scale well in terms of damage when compared to fire skills, and without hellfire, being a pure Ice Elestra meant that you will need to hit that 17.8k critical for critical cap.
Skills like Firewall and inferno are definitely useful for PVP even if you don’t do it full time.
You can alter your skill build by bringing inferno down to 1 if you find no need for the increased range and can place those SP in other skills deemed fit.
“Salestra” build is definitely recommended for PVE Elestra so if you’re going for Pure Ice Elestra build make sure you’re mentally prepared to get perfect potential with crit 17% on your rings and weapons.
Skill Scaling for you to decide your own build and make your own decisions
I hope this guide is useful once again to everyone.
