Elemancer doesn't gain new attributes as Omnimancer, but instead have upgraded spells for the main 3 elements. Explode, Hailstorm, and Thunderbolt hit all enemies with amplified fire, ice, and volt damage, respectively. Unfortunately theirs TP cost are too high, so Elemancer has a few skills to control their TP. Mana Flow is a buff that restores TP to random party member each time the Elemancer casts a spell, Cutting Costs gives a chance to cast spells for free, and Abating Chant reduces damage output in order to reduce TP cost. Perhaps the best skill for TP management is Clever Strike, which surprisingly deals high damage output for INT-based skill at a very low TP Cost.

Clever Strike deals INT-based damage and inherits its type of damage (Bash usually) from whichever weapon they are using; if a Warlock equips a Staff then they must be in the front row to do full damage with Clever Strike, and Clever Strike also inherits elemental properties from Oils or Shaman Prayers. For example, an Elemancer using Clever Strike with a Cannon (Gun) from the back row will do full INT bash type damage (+ element from any oil / prayer used) because cannon is a ranged weapon. Clever Strike used in this manner benefits from all damage buffs and debuffs. Common Magic is a passive skill that gives a 50% damage boost if another character performs an INT-based skill before the user, combining this skill with how Clever Strike works makes Shaman the perfect partner for an Elemancer. Graced Poisoner with Smokeblight and Smoke Bomb isn’t too shabby either, but it requires Oil Items for Clever Strike or Magi spells to take advantage of elements without a Shaman.

With the assumption of rested character with around 30 skill points, Clever Strike has the highest priority. It deals a good amount of damage with low TP, so the user won't need to conserve their TP. That's 3 points to Magic Shield and then 10 points to Clever Strike. Since it doesn't have any element, Elemancer needs the basic Firebolt, Icicle Lance, and Lightning to deal elemental damage. Raise those skills to level 4, then spread the rest of the points to Mana Flow, Cutting Costs, Amplifier, and Common Magic. Abating Chant is useless so don't learn Quick Chant.

Build notes:

  • A late game build with Explode, Hailstorm, and Thunderbolt and Focus Chant will out-damage a Clever strike build, but it is obviously much more TP and SP intensive.
  • Clever Strike is available at almost maximum strength from the moment you unlock Master Classes.
  • Staff weapons have better stats for Clever Strike and there are strategies that work best when using Clever Strike in the front row with a Staff. However, I prefer to equip my Elemancer with a Cannon and use Clever Strike from the back row.

Clever Strike Build:
Start [ Amplifier (9) > Magic Shield (3) > Clever Strike (10) > Common Magic (10)]

Then level Magic ATK Up (1, 5, or 10) and grab useful Union/Gathering/Racial Skills. The build is then complete and you can spend the remaining points on whatever you like.
