    After having played 25 games with Element with a 60% winrate, I have completely mastered this race, to the point where I feel like I am elegible to write a guide, so you too can feed your ass off.

    Wave 1
    Start with a Fire Elemental on the left on the 7th field from the top, all the other starts can easily be screwed up and I was too lazy to test them in-depth. Push to 4 Worker as soon as possible.

    Wave 2
    Add a proton for 2, just to be save. If you get a 40 send here, you can savely push to 6 workers here and add one proton for 3 as shown for wave 3.

    Wave 3
    Add one windhawk and one proton here, holds 80 every time. If you got a send, push all your money into workers.

    Wave 4
    If you got a send on 3, you don't need to add anything. Else add another Windhawk as shown for Wave 5.

    Wave 5
    The setup below holds 80 easily. If you expect more and have the cash, either add protons or add a Mudman in the position shown for Wave 8. If you got a send here, you have a choice : If you want to be greedy, push all your money into Workers, just save 40 to 60 to add more protons.

    Wave 6
    If you got a send on 5, this should hold 80 unless you get unlucky focus, if you expect more, add some protons or another Windhawk.

    Wave 7
    Add a disciple here, and invest the rest of your gold into more protons.

    Wave 8/9
    If you got a send on 7, add only one windhawk, and push the rest in workers. Else add the Mudman and the Windhawk or Protons if you can't afford that.
    For 9, add whatever you didn't add for 8 in the picture and push the rest in workers, unless you expect a send 9, then you can upgrade one Windhawk instead.

    Wave 10
    For Wave 10, add a Starcaller. If you expect a send, invest the rest of your gold in protons.

    Wave 11
    For 11, add one Mudman so your Fire Ele does not get sniped. Start upping Violets to get the bonus of the Starcaller.

    After that, it depends too much on the game to simply take pictures, figure it out on your own.

    Now you too are ready to tilt enemies and allies alike.

    If with only 25 games you have a very good build, this confirm how Legion is so much easier to play than Mastermind XD. Thanks for the build. :)

    I started with Aqua combo in the beginning, but I dropped the Rogue after a while.
    • Unreliable damage.
    • Pretty much dead value 9/10/11
    • Leaving out the Rogue makes you a bit weaker 7/8, but since you get a send on 5 quite often, the 7 sends are quite manageable most of the time, and if you don't get a send on 7, you can still add the Rogue for 8 and be fine with Combo/Disciple.
    • Having Windhawks instead of Rogue makes Dinos so much less effective.

    First two games with this build... first one goes okay but I get massive sends that I wasn't prepared for... not the guide's fault. Second one had a 1k player who tried to forfeit on wave 3 when they leaked. This build is bad luck! D:

    In a element guide, would be useful the information about phoenix positioning late.
    Even if it isn't about specifics builds late, just positioning concepts.
