    Default Ultimate DoTage lvl 42 mage build suggestion

    Pros - Dots are awesome for two things - pvp and boss fights
    Cons - Dots fail at one thing - trash fights

    Build i am suggesting: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1z...czVtkzs.bjoGoM
    It is a lvl 42 build (thats the cap for upcoming beta) and i recommend trying this out if you like watching your enemies die slowly and in pain!

    DoTs:
    Necrosis - also gives nice buff to your pet
    Life Leech - awesome cause it heals you
    Searing Vitality - Endurance buff translates to - moar mana!
    Dark touch - nice damage dot
    Neddra's grasp - well we will be unable to reach radiating death but it is still ANOTHER DOT!
    Neddra's Torture - maybe not a dot but adds a 3% to all magic damage

    Other awesome things bout this build:
    1. You dont have to worry on trash group fights once you get awesomesauce Devouring Shadows and Grave Rot and Corpse Explosion AOE!
    2. Searing Vitality get 25,8% more damage from Neddra's Influence
    3. Life Leech gets 50,8% more damage from Neddra's Influence and Improved Life Leech and Death's Ally
    4. 90,8% more damage from Necrosis CRAZY! (Neddra's Influence and Flesh Rot and Death's Ally)
    5. 30,8% more damage from Dark Touch (Neddra's Influence, Death's Ally)
    6. Add 3% to all magic damage6. 30,8%
    7. You can choose between 2% more crit and 8% chance for insta cast or 1% more crit and 10% chance for insta cast
    8. 30,8% more dmg on Neddra's Grasp
    9. Lich Form +Sacrifice Life -> Damage = absolute Soul Purge ownage

    Bad things:
    It makes Revenant pet useless as it is hard to maintain Deathly Calling stacks. Well when you are getting instant cast you can cast plague bolt but i rather use archon's pillaging stone for the buff. Another way of getting Deathly Calling is Grave Rot aoe which is instant. Its best used with your melee DPS pet - Zealot.

    Your thoughts please. Perhaps my calculations miss something but its still early and i still havent had my coffee and cig.

    * Lose all 5 points in Deadly Plague ( 2sec cast time is not worth it ) + Grave Rot does aoe dot damage
    * Lose Feign Death
    * Add more points in Magical Affinity, you want to use your Soul purge spell as fast as u can, so u need charge
    * Lose all 5 points in Master Chirurgeon, with Exhume skill, u can summon a new pet instantly.

    Where to put the points u have free now, i leave to you

    Just wanna say, that warlock Life leech is as good as useless... dont have time right now to go over rest of your build. But if you do put points in warlock.. I would definetly go for at least 20 points to get Mortality...

    it's not a level 45 build, but I think this is abit more of what you want.

    Loosing that points wont make it possible to get corpse explosion.
    Feighn death is usefull
    I tried soul purge with just two points in MA. Dot's build up charge fast.

    Here, I made that build I posted earlier a 45.

    PB just isn't worth it and neither is corpse explosion. Necro's suffer from Single Target Syndrome. We just aren't designed for good AoE(while it IS possible to get some decent AoE). I'd rather leave that to someone else while I go spank the boss.

    EDIT: Forgot to post the build, derp. http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...oVVL.xtctVzo0s
