    Default Solo - PvP Mage build

    http://rifts.ru/tallents/index.html#...17,3_&lang=eng

    What do you think of this build ... It has lots of CC, decent self-healing capability + the ability to exhaust your enemy with mana/energy drains + a 50% heal-debuff

    Of course it would be a bit complex to play, but I like that :-)

    You goofed your link. Once you figure out spec, click Link Your Build, and copy the stuff from there....which you likely knew, just went too quick this time

    Tbh i found Fresh Graves in Necro to be quite lackluster for the point cost.
    Pets get fairly ignored and more into Symbiote will return decent heals.
    Also 1 point into consumption could be very handy to remove thier buffs on a 5s cd. I could be wrong but i dont think this skill breaks squirrel. If you can lock them down you could bleed off thier buffs first.

    Almost tempted to sacrifice extra pet dmg to explode them if they are killed.

    Imho Shadow Life in Warlock was is too good to pass up. Stole a point from Dark Power. Tough call where to poach that point from tbh.

    Overall your build will do well at locking down and neutralising an opponent.

    With suggested changes... http://rifts.ru/tallents/index.html#...17,3_&lang=eng

    Thanks, the build you suggested is a bit better ...
    I have another one, which uses no dots in order to use the cc - abilities to the full extent:

    http://rifts.ru/tallents/index.html#...16,5_&lang=eng

    I put 14 points in Warlock simply for Wither, fear and Reconstruct. In theory you could squirrel or fear your opponent and then use reconstruct. For mana you could either use a ground of power combined with "overpowering will" for 350% mana regeneration or "Sacrifice Life: Mana".

    I tried to avoid DOTs in this build, because they break fear and transmogrify ... and I don't want that ^^

    lvl 50 mage huh? ^^
    I can see why you would implement chloromancer, but why necro? Wouldn't dominator be more practical for additional CC (or Warlock for CC and self-heal through reconstruct)

    I havnt checked on the heal values difference between Warlocks Reconstruct and Necros Soul Purge. But the Necro's deals damage and heals the pet aswell as self. Also with the Necros mana recovery from pet health in Reclaim Power the combo is very nice. It allows all power conservation talents in Pyro to be avoided in lieu of more dmg and cc.

Also, I can heal myself forever.

    wait.. you have a level 50 and you've been playing it for months.
    i'm pretty sure i smell bull ****.

    NDA has not been lifted so I can't say anything more.

    you think alpha players are not 50? or dont have access to 50s? someone needs to test endgame, easy to auto pop premade lv 50 chars with default gear for testing purposes. these betas are just events, akin to stress tests, yes they are testing and tweeking when we play, but there is still testing going on when the beta servers are down.

    @Tzigone did you mean a combo like this one?
    http://rifts.ru/tallents/index.html#...18,5_&lang=eng

    The combo of soul purge with improved Radiant Spores (30% of healing for 100% of the dmg done) seems really nice...also a really nice off-healing build in a group situation

    But at least in theory, I like the following combo better

    http://rifts.ru/tallents/index.html#...16,5_&lang=eng

    The damage of the Dominator spells is mainly death damage too ... I especially like mana wrench ;-)
