Elementalist Build
 
This is my first build ever. Just tried to make it look good and how it would work if it was an actual build. So, here it is.

You got a little too greedy there, trying to spend SP on getting all four advanced elemental spells. Focus on maxing one or two elements. Also, getting max Elemental Burn and Magic Festival is a must. The bonuses they give help greatly.

Personally, I feel that Mages in general could go without Ancient Library (other than Witch, since they can level it higher, along with sharing it). Just saying though, that's just me.

Erh, Memorize sounds REALLY useful, reducing both casting time and maximum charge time.

I don't see many Elementalists use Aerial Fire Bomb, much less Fire Bomb at all, even when they have it for pre-requisite.

Erh, okay, your build in general. I think we had someone suggest this before, and quite frankly, I don't think these all-elements builds are possible. I don't play Elementalist or a class with a choice of variety (other than Battle Mage, and Chasers don't come close enough to Elementalist varieties), BUT because your third/last-tier magic are all level one, I don't believe their damage will help. Even being able to spam your magic with this variety and having Magic Library, your damage per MP cost will MORE THAN LIKELY be lower than someone that focuses on a few skills.
Plus you don't have the skill points to put into Mastery. X: Masteries give such nice bonuses.

In short, I recommend cutting down your elements to at most three, with focuses on two. Less means more.

I would choose just two elements, 3 is really pushing it. On my ele, I'm really low on my SP and I can't level the skills I need when I can level them. And in the end, you'd be using only a few skills to kill your mobs, you won't have the time to use all 4. Sure, use it for Elemental Burn, but you can just use the first tier skills to fill it up.

Edit: Is this a guide or just a question?

It's a good build if you only plan on fighting exos/crusaders in pvp. :P
I suppose if you're good enough with it you can also fight gunners.
You'll almost always lose to any other decent ele for sure though. ^^

This looks VERY similar to my build, except I didn't get shuru. I don't really regret my build so far, but it doesn't feel efficient very much lol. If I try and spam my third tiers I would get into massive MP issues, but overall, I still have fun with my build

Here's what I'm going for at level 60 AradSociety - Skill Planner

It's rather pure offensive, but you would get to have all the skills.
