    Feel free to post any criticism you may have, positive or negative, on the posted build.

    It could be on my end, but when I click your link it just has all three souls as Archmage, and nothing else.

    I would consider tinkering a bit more if that's the case

    i'll start by saying I have yet to play a warlock, though I've been looking into playing one in the next beta.
    that said, perhaps you should elaborate on the purpose for your spec: PvP or PvE? I am assuming PvE because you seem to be skipping survivability and utility talents for the most part.

    regardless, i would suggest dropping those points that are in ele summoner and putting them into your warlock tree. for pvp, i would suggest getting neddra's essnce. for pve, i would get 5/5 improved warlock armor. i'm sure 10% overall damage is better than 5% crit assuming it is still a 150% damage multiplier for crits.

    i notice that you have points into void bolt and not in deadly plague even though necro is your 'main spec.' While a 24% reduction in cast time to void bolt would seem to make it better DPCT filler than plague bolt, I'm very sure that you would need to be casting plague bolt at least a few times considering that several of your talents benefit from its deathly calling application, namely fresh graves and vengeful spirit.

    Personally I would probably go with something like this: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1z...0VVx.EtczVzohs
    There are only 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don't.

    I think Graverot is used to apply dealthy calling so void bolt becomes the only filler.

    Id probably spec something like this http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1z...us.ecoh0VV.x0h

    I don't see how Chloromancer or the points you put into it would really work since you shouldn't really be casting any Life based spells. You said yourself that Void Bolt is your filler, which I agree with, so what life based spells are you going to be casting to benefit from the Chloro tree? Also, 3/3 in Empowered Veil increases the effects of two abilities you don't even have, i.e. Entropic Veil and Lifegiving Veil.

    I'm also curious how threat goes at higher levels. As I came from WoW playing DPS classes that frequently pull threat from tanks, I'm wondering if Feign Death would be a good investment or if it's really just a moot point in Rift.

    Also, Empty the Crypts seems like a nice DPS cooldown and I don't see anyone taking it, is it just not as good a Charge dump as Soul Purge?

    Finally, from what I've seen, unless Plague Bolt gets a massive damage increase over Void Bolt, Void Bolt is the main filler, 3/3 to reduce it's cast time should be mandatory. It will also refresh one of your DoTs if specced.

    Is what I think I'd go for for PvE, the points in Symbiote are arguable and can pretty much be placed anywhere you like, however, survivability is always nice and the less you have to be healed, the more healing can go to people who should actually need it. Those pts can go into Empty the Crypts, Feign Death, or Deadly Plague if it suits your play style, but they probably won't be increasing your DPS any, just your utility. I took one point in lingering pain, since you will be spamming Void Bolt, a 50% chance should be enough to refresh it consistently. I look at it this way, casting Life Leech is a DPS loss over casting Void Bolt to refresh Life Leech. Any thoughts?

    would replace the pyromancer soul by the chloromancer soul that keep your pet alive with heals and also when you group up with others your spores can heal your partymembers. this is great for raids and if you want another pick on things i would drop warlock entirely and get necro/dom/chloromancer (get dominator until you have that damage shield - charged shield)
