    Default what is top burst in pvp now since 1.2?

    In the lower levels I still seem to be doing well with bursts with Sab and my pyro is doing good to.

    Was wondering what the top burst souls are at 50 now?

    Elementalist/Stormcaller/Archmage can put out the biggest hit. In b4 Fulminate.

    Intensify Elements + Static Flux + Debuffed Enemy + Lightning Strike crit.

    The problem with doing ^ is that Fulminate is instant cast, doesn't require an hour of set up, and hits almost as hard.

    Stupid 5 minute rule.

    Actually going to hand the vote to Pyro here. Fireball-->Fulminate-->Firestorm/Flamebolt-->Inferno is more than Lightning Strike-->Lightning Field. Both chains will hit an enemy all within .5 seconds.

    2,3,4k Instants. Mage. No contest. Mage insta-kills are almost as bad as Cleric never-die.

    And for the a-hats saying "how come premades aren't stacknig clerics?" .... they are. Atleast in our battlegroup. Funny to see at the end tops kills our side.. 2-4, top kills their side... 50-60. ROFL.

    Patheticly one-sided and obvious as heck when one side has a bunch of cleric.

    Throw in some Mages for insta-killing and no one bothers to leave the graveyard after a while. No point.

    Definately a caster class, since more classes have mitigation against physical damage.

    That said, on my Marksman since 1.2, if I have the red wing buff + words of war trinket going, I can burst about 6k in 4 seconds, as long as it's not against a tank.

    Single target burst is definitely a pyro with the crit moddifier talents in the archmage tree. The main downside to them is that if they don't end the fight fast they lack real survival.

    For AoE burst I'd say cabalist since the more targets there are the more damage they do. Its not uncommon at all for them to be able to oneshot people with a bit of setup.

    Only debate on this question is which spec of mage. Still pyros for my 2 cents. A friend fulminated someone for 8k with the powerball and an archon buff. And doesn't even have most of his R6 gear yet.

    No.

    Lightning Strike-->Icy Carapace-->Lightning Field > your sequence, it's simple mechanics surrounding chance to crit on all those skills.

    Fulminate sequence spends a full charge bar and 45s cooldown.
    Lightning Strike sequence needs debuffing which you're doing anyway, and essentially has no cooldown.

    Outside of the burst sequences, the SC/Ele build performance is far better as well.

    The perfect team setup: half clerics, half mages. You will skilfully outplay any team.

    That is until an enemy team stacks void knights. Oh wait, they can't catch you.
