The Elementalist is an Ascendancy class for Witches.

Overview

Elementalists deal in all things elemental. They can enhance the power of elemental ailments to be more powerful, even against bosses, and make them compatible with other damage types. They also have access to Mastermind of Discord to make elemental Exposure more powerful, Heart of Destruction to gain powerful conditional offensive bonuses, and Bastion of Elements to ward off against elemental damage. Finally, Elementalists have access to golem-related skills, which not only enhance their survivability, but also give bigger enhancements to your own character the more golems you have active.
