    hard to say at this point, looks like quite a few decent dps possibilities. i woudl guess it would be in the rogue or mage calling though.

    We'll figure it out once we can test the different souls.I know i will theorycraft the best rogue build for pvp and pve eventually but there are so many souls. I am going to have alot of fun!hitting-self:

    It will depend on the fight. Long fights vs. Short fights or Sustained vs. Burst. Does it have ae attacks you have to range or need to take the Rift Stalker soul to live though? Does certain classes buff one class better than others? All these things will factor in. But I can say it will not be Bard or Rift Stalker

    Dps could be very difficult to calculate with no addons like recount to do the number crunching. Unless ofc they build one into the game.

    Given the number of potential combinations and stat builds that may or may not complement each other, figuring out which build is "the best" may be nigh on impossible.

    Which I for one think is fantastic.

    Pyromancer, Assassin, Champion...

    Maybe their mixes with some other souls.

    I couldn't agree more Samiel. I was never a number cruncher, but always liked the formulas used to calculate this stuff in gaming. This is gonna be a nightmare for those folks to figure out. LOL Honestly I really don't think it's going to matter in Rift. So many combo's that I think it's going to be more of figuring out the proper balance vs trying to max DPS. IMO
    It is difficult to be that shining light when most around you desire only darkness. It is the true healer, the true sage, who remains sage amongst those who are not awake. Take heart, and remain at courage

    It is my hope that there will be no "highest" dps class.

    There are six planes and countless variety within those six planes. Give mobs resistances and weaknesses appropriate to their plane of origin. Ensure that no single spec will ever be the strongest again all 6 origins.

    I doubt it will be a pure soul.

    Pyromancer, for example, can get a sizable boost from several low tier Elementalist abilities.

    Well, the highest DPS will be the lucky one who groups with a bard!

    Probably a Pyromancer or Stormcaller... WAIT A MINUTE! How about a Pyrocaller!!!

    I'm sorta glad we can't combine souls from different archetypes imagine a Warrior/Cleric/Mage build...

    the one who hits it the hardest and most offen in that fight.
    who really cares as a healer i dont. I say if you know your class do and your jobs and have a cold one handy its all good. The mob will die in the end. If it takes 5sec or 5mins its all about the fun oh and healing.

    Have an ale

    I agree. While the end ability of the Assassin looks nice it does nothing for DPS. So dropping a few points into another tree is going to give you a high DPS. You might not survive as well in PVP but we aren't talking about that, we are talking DPS.

    Here's my crack at it with souls for which we know the ability list.

    A couple points might need to be moved around if it turns out Neddra's Influence does not work with Combust. Also, depending on how a crit build might work, it could also be more beneficial to go for Tempest instead of Neddra's Inlfuence.

    That sort of build might look like this:

    Of course, it's hard to craft any good theories without more accurate information and some way to test things.
