For PvE, anything but water. Fire is the noob-friendly element.

Two.

You'll always want to invest 10 points in Earth Magic for Ward Against Melee.

Then, 8+1 energy storage for 15 energy Glyph of Lesser Energy.

The rest adds up to 12+1+1 attributes for an element of your choice.

In answer to your question:
You should really only focus on one element at a time, and switching is easy since you can re-arrange your points in town. If that doesn't help then I probably misunderstood what you're asking.

And in relation to water magic:
Water is a really good support element, I love playing water in PvE.

Air is the useless one in PvE, it has a few support elements but in general Earth or Water are better support and spikes are pretty pointless on monsters.

Water and Air are both very useful in the more difficult areas. Before you get there it's better to use Fire or Earth.

Yeah, cause Blinding Flash/Surge, Enervating Charge, Shell Shock, and numerous armor penetration attacks aren't team support. Face a group of hard hitting melee, and Air is your best friend.

There is no element that is useless in PVE.....though fire and earth are more useful in a wider variety of areas.

The nice thing is that Sup runes are cheap now....so, do what I did and build your ele to run all 4. I literally carry 4 sets of headgear and a weapon set for each element. That flexibility keeps my ele fresh - rather than just clicking nuke chains all day.

If you have to prioritize - in order of PVE usefulness - I would say Fire-Earth-Air-Water.

Best of luck!
