    Default Frontload/Burst?

    Which mage is best for suddenly striking for a crap ton of damage on a single target?

    I'll do other souls for DPS and such I'm sure, but I'm just curious what puts out the biggest immediate bang for your buck if you wanted to just hit three or four skills real quick and see a health bar drop.

    My MM is only level 28 but with all cooldowns available, he drops things within a few seconds.

    I have a high-level mage and I've heard that pyro can do the same thing but haven't tried it.

    please dont make up numbers...
    pyro could do these kind of number in 1.1 with the double weapon exploit plus redball, now they have been nerfed into ground and still they are to be nerfed even more with next week patch.

    These numbers are not made up.

    They are numbers I have been hit for by Pyros for the past couple of weeks.

    Without redball.

    Also when my 41 pyro hits for about 1.8k with Cinderbust and 1k with Inferno...

    Screw it, roll Justicar and never die.

    Takes you 15 minutes to kill something half your level, but you won't drop below 99%.

    Post-1.3, none. In PvP it's Dominator, ChloroLock, or fail.

    You keep playing with your 0 valor then buddy

    I have never seen anyone been hit for a fulminate over 6k, nor myself being hit for over 4.5k even with a red ball and im a rogue. that was back when I was in rank 1/2 aswell!

    So please, dont make up numbers. Pyro's burst was strong and did need toning down so I wont disagree about 'large' numbers but dont be silly.

    Highest Fulminate crit I have ever seen in Rank5/1 R6 gear is 3.4k. Lowest health I have as a mage in pvp is 5.2k.
