This is not meant to be a display of skill, from my or his side. :) I make a lot of mistakes (also part of why I record fights once in a while, so I can spot the mistakes later), so for any Eles watching who may want to learn from it:

* I dive into, and tank way too much damage in, melee range far too often. I think it's because I try to maximize damage from Ring of Fire + the triple/quad Might combo (Fire 2, Fire 3, Arcane Wave and possibly dodge) without thinking about all the damage I take in return. I should spend more time kiting in Air attunement using Air #2 and 3 (both instant) as they come off cooldown.

* Dodging twice in the same attunement - bad idea when I have the bonus from Evasive Arcana. The dodge effect has an internal cooldown for each attunement, so I should be swapping attunement to maximize my dodge rolls.

* Summoning my Elite a bit late. I thought I could win without it (and I probably could have with fewer mistakes).

* Using the first Churning Earth so early when it was fairly obvious he still had an interrupt available was a bit silly. Should have waited a bit or tried to get my 50% Armor of Earth to proc before using it.

* Still trying to figure out what the best combo to use after Updraft is. Dragon's Tooth will not land versus anyone with a clue and I really like getting high Might stacks from the common combination.
