Yes. Just keep in mind your DPS against bosses might be lower, but you'll be able to kill mobs much more quickly.
I also want to add that fire has a freaaking long cast time for their stronger AEs, but I didn't mess around with the other elemental stances to compare. All I know is that 10 seconds for an 8 target AE is ridiculous. I think fireball is the best one out of Fire's arsenal, simply because it's fast and knocks down. (You need this a lot) -hugs Fireball-
EDIT: Also, keep in mind Fire isn't useful against mobs in the Tetra Catacombs and such, cause they're fire element, so you might not always use it first early on.
