Fluff

Chaos is an innate part of life. Nothing alive is able to function without some amount of disorder being released in the process. For most this small amount of chaos barely affects their lives, but an Elementalist feels these disjunctions flowing through them and around them. They don’t see things the same ways that others do. What most people call fire, an Elementalist sees heat. Where a person may seem crashing waves, an Elementalist sees pressure. Elementalists gain their powers not by the elements themselves, but rather from their beginning and end, the Elemental Chaos.
 As an Elementalist you see the underlying powers of the universe and have the ability to harness them. The question remains on how you obtained your powers. Perhaps you had high exposure to the Elemental Chaos as a child. Maybe you’re a scholar who pursues these powers through your studies. Or maybe you are blessed by a Genie. However you came to your powers, you now are a doorway to its chaotic and raw power.

Class Features

Chaotic Fury
Your powers are not usual elements, but their raw and unordered beginnings. As such, creatures are not used to their barrages. Creatures take a -1 penalty to save against effects you create from your daily powers.


Harbor of Elements
Your connection to the Elemental Chaos gives increases your senses beyond those your natural capabilities, increasing your defense. However, its chaotic nature means it is constantly changing. Roll a d6 to determine your advantage for the day.
D6  Damage Type
1  +1 to your AC
2  +1 to your Reflex defense
3  +1 to your Fortitude defense
4  +1 to your Will Defense
5  Resist 5 to a damage type.
6  Resist 2 to all damage.
The benefit from rolls 1-4 increase to +2 at 11th level and +3 at 21st level. The resistance granted from a roll of a 5 increases to 10 at 11th level and 15 at 21st level. And the resist damage from a roll of 6 increases to 4 at 11th level and 6 at 21st level.


Elemental Grasp
The powers of the Elemental Chaos are hard to control. As such, different Elementalists utilize this power in different ways. Some shape portions of it into controllable energy, while others just let the raw energy flow through them.  Choose an Elemental Grasp. Your choice will influence some Elementalist powers, as detailed in those powers.


Shaper
 When using a burst or blast power you can ignore one square of the burst or blast. Thus, that square and any creature in it are unaffected by the effects of your power.


Fluxer
Your powers ignore your target’s resistances equal to one-half your level (minimum 1). You treat creatures that are immune to your damage as if it had resist 20.


Builds

Flowing Elementalist
You allow the raw powers of the Elemental Chaos to flow through you, slamming foes with chaotic and ever changing energy. All your powers depend on a high Dexterity so that should be your highest ability score. Charisma should be your second as it allows you to reach into the more chaotic powers. Constitution makes for a good third choice for hit points and your fortitude defense. You choose powers that focus on unpredictability and raw power.

Shaping Elementalist
You take the forces of the Elemental Chaos and shape it as best as you can, granting some order to your powers. Dexterity is your main ability score as all your powers benefit from it. Constitution gives you the physical strength to shape the chaos of your powers so it should be your second highest. A good charisma is good for a strong will defense. You want to focus on powers that allow you to shape the battlefield to your advantage.

Other descriptive things

Elementalist Overview
Your powers utilize the raw forces of the Elemental Chaos, making them hard to resist and shake off, but also hard to predict. Most of your powers also involve burst and blast that allow you to affect a wide variety of enemies at once.


Implement
Elementalists utilize orbs or ki focuses to channel their chaotic elemental powers. When you wield an orb or use a ki focus, you can add its enhancement bonus to the attack rolls and the damage rolls of Elementalist powers and Elementalist Paragon Paths that have the implement keyword. Without an implement, you can still use these powers.


Elementalist Powers
An Elementalist’s powers are called channels as you direct the forces of the Elemental Chaos onto the battlefield. These powers are released as large burst or blasts that scar your enemies and the battlefield.

Ok, post away. I'm not used to creating controllers so I'm hoping for a lot of constructive feedback. I wasn't sure on what kind of implements this class should use so that's why it's kind of ambiguous. My features probably also need their fair bit of help. Any ideas will help, and I will be constantly working on this class (as I think I may play it).

Thanks ahead of time!

I'm seeing plenty of love for the Con build and the shaper, not as much for the fluxer and none for charisma, plus I think you've got spont shot up there twice.

You should either have the Basic Ranged Attack be secondary ability score neutral or you need  another one with a charisma rider. 

Other than that it seems mostly okay. 

Thanks for the reply, I'll fix it as soon as I can. And the Daily powers are now added.
MEntal breach is kinda puny, even for a dazing effect.

Thanks again Rampant. I edited Mental Breach, it now deals 1d6 + dexterity modifier damage and the target is dazed (save ends) on a hit, with a miss just being dazed until the end of your next turn.

I also added Boreal Orb as an At-Will power for Fluxer builds. It's ranged basic attack. 1d8 + Dex + Cha fire, cold, and lightning damage. And your roll to see what defense the power targets.

Hope its better now.

Boreal Orb is REALLY nice. You do know that it's multiple damage types means that only a monster that has resist ALL THREE will resist any of it, right? For a first level power, that is INTENSE. Also, double-modifier damage is nuts too. Also, potentially hitting any defense makes it so much better.

I sort of figured it would be too powerful, though you should have seen the original :O. I'll fix it. Thanks Namagem.

The problem with that is it makes it extremely similar to Loose Energy, plus one die size, minus push.
I was thinking that same thing. I'll probably change it again as it really isn't much of a controller power anyways.
I switched Boreal Orb for Ice Crystals and rearranged all the powers so that they are in alphabetical order. Level 2 Utility powers have also been added.

Just added Level 5 Dailies to the list as well as the Level 3 Encounter powers.
