    Default Worst build you can manage...

    Okay, here's the goal.

    Spend 48 points in your calling. Be as gimped as you can manage. You are looking for lack of synergy, ineffectual powers, things like that. The goal here is a character who, played competently, will suck as much as possible. PvE souls only, and assume PvE content.

    Here's my entry: The mage who Does Not Understand Pets.

    Chloro 9/Necro 25/Ele 14

    How it works:

    Chloromancer is crippled by buying 4 points of talents that are largely wasted. The 2-second reduction in the cast time of Bloom makes no difference if you don't take bloom, and the 20% boost to Lifegiving Veil doesn't matter if you stop at 9 points so you never get it. The only talent that does anything at all is the boost to life damage, but there's a pretty short supply of decent life damage spells here.

    Necromancer, I take advantage of the fact that the pet upgrade is a root talent. You can spend 25 points before you get the lich pet, and without the 21-point talent or the lich pet, your pets cap out at level 30; by level 36, this makes them basically worthless. Thus, I put as many points as I could into upgrading the pets and things like deathly calling, which is only used by pet powers.

    Elementalist, again, focusing everything on pet upgrades.

    This is pretty much the worst I could come up with. I think this build would be genuinely painful to play.

    You're right, what am I thinking putting five minutes into something amusing relating to a recreational activity?

    All of the aforementioned builds pale compared with Teleporting Sniper.

    It's the summun of the Ascendant Soul System.

    What you win is the knowledge that if you play in enough pugs, you will get a tank using that build.

    51 point warlord.
    Only 2 buffs that noone else has a better version of in a raid.
    Both of them on a 5 minute cooldown.

    Beat that.

    inb4 "n e rouge dps spec is worse lol xD"

    I actually can't really come up with a worse one than 48point dominator... It's so useless in pve that it makes my mind freeze.

    Try THAT, though

    Also went as little CC, CC breaks and immunities as I could manage.

    Pretty sure you are right though ;)

    that's the best i can do with cleric. would also like to point out that in spite of all those pet improving talents in druid, the only summonable pet with that spec is a weak faerie that caps out at level 30
