    Default Mandatory souls?

    Based on the forum posts I've seen on the mage section, it seems like the Harbinger soul is basically mandatory to do the best DPS/healing.

    Which leads me to my question: How mandatory are the other three souls from Storm Legion? And if they're not mandatory, how balanced do you think they are?

    Tempest is pretty much mandatory for dps warriors.
    Defiler is very useful, but I don't know if it's mandatory (outside progression raiding)
    Tactician isn't mandatory from anything I've seen.

    Tactician makes soloing a lot easier for any rogue solo spec because of Curative Engine. Otherwise not very important

    Tempest is the only real ranged spec for warriors but you can usually make do without it if you don't need range

    Defiler is very important for raiding but you don't need more than one per raid. It can be used in a nice solo spec but there's always Druid specs instead.

    There are no "mandatory" souls.
    Currently, people believe that there are, but really there isn't.
    Unless you're really competitive (high end PvP, raids, etc.), then you can get by without any of the SL souls.

    you can get by well enough in PvP without harbinger

    but almost every pve build seems to be some harbinger hybrid

    Leveling - Nothing is mandatory.
    Expert Dungeons - Nothing is mandatory, but having SL souls may be nice.
    T1 Raids - Nothing is mandatory (now), but having SL souls is really good to have
    T2 Raids (hardcore or regular raiding) - SL souls may not be technically mandatory, but they should probably be sought after
    T2 Raids (progression, if that still matters) - Socially mandatory

    Upcoming T3 progression - Yeah, I'd say they'll be mandatory


    Currently none are 'absolutely needed'. However, because of the builds that can be made with some of them, not having them is a hindrance to top-end progression.
