    Default i have a Questions about the "New" soul pre-sets for Mage

    ok am an old player coming back to the game, and i use the old Graver build, that use Warlock, Necro, and Chrom one, but now it has Necro, and Element trees... Why? what benefit is there with 2 pet souls trees in the same build? and to make it worse only 5 points go in to the Element one, also the whole 1 to 3% pet attack just for having the soul there is not worth it and you can only have 1 pet out at a time, meaning the other pet skills are useless on the Element side

    Sad to say the old Warlock, Nero, and Chrom wes better in my book,

    I am pretty sure the talents for the pet buffs stack.
    If you are going to cross thin ice, you might as well dance across.

    Ya i look in to that, but still its not worth it, the Greater Skeleton from the Nerco tree was all ready Beastly as a tank, so the Element tree pet buff is really not needed, and a waste of 5 points

    First off this thread belongs in the Mage Discussion forums, not the Class Discussion forums.

    I assume you are referring to the "Gravelord" preset (not "Graver"). This preset is designed primarily for DPS in a group situation (usually dungeons). It was not designed primarily for solo use (although it is still very good at solo), and so survival trees like Chloromancer are not taken.

    Elementalist as a secondary soul provides the largest DPS boost to Necromancer, and so is necessary for a spec designed to do DPS. That is why the Gravelord was changed from its original version.

    Because there is no longer a Necro/Chloro preset, I would recommend either creating your own spec based on the guides that are floating around these forums or using the "Summoner" preset which is an Ele/Chloro solo spec.
