    Default Much QQ do I see...

    But very little actual mage discussion going on in this forum.

    So let's start up a discussion that doesn't focus on our weaknesses, but instead focuses on builds that are fun to play.

    Myself I'm playing an Elementalist/Warlock/Dominator for when I'm solo'ing.

    Otherwise running instances I'm playing a Chloromancer/Warlock/Necromancer.

    What are all of you playing?

    I just tried something similar to this (too lazy to log in and confirm, but I'm sure it's it): http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...fd0z.fx0VkVVxz

    I got tired of running pyro/dom in pvp so I thought I'd give this a shot. I'm really liking it so far. I tried running dominator for the squirrels and cast speed, but I didn't get as deep as I wanted into lock tree, and picking up necro gives me soul purge and Essence Link. What I lack in control from loss of dom, I gain in damage and life return.

    I wanted to try this because I got sick and damn tired of trying to get all my dps buffs up so I could cast 2 sec fireballs only to find a warrior flying in my face from off screen and ripping my arse wide open in mere seconds. This build seems to hold a little better so far. Still not "OMG OP!", but the life leeches, fears, slows seem to keep me going for a bit. The ramp up time isn't any better than pyro, but I don't mind trading the RNG style burst for a more reliable slow but strong play style. It can still do some decent burst once dots are up. 1.5 sec void bolts with Sac Life: Damage and Soul Purge, a 30% MS and choke can put someone in a real pinch. And let's not forget those fun moments where people bunch up and you can spread AIDS over 8 people and then AoE madness. :P

    I only respecced to this about 2 hours ago after never having done much in lock besides minimal chloro support, so there is still a lot I'm sure I haven't thought about. But so far, I'm liking it better than pyro

    PvP spec I am currently running as a 50 mage (pyro/lock/dom):

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...zshzs.xx0V0qVe

    (still underpowered compared to warriors)

    Solo PvE Spec (Necro/Lock/Dom):

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0ckLu.V0o.E0ohdc0M.b

    (completely rocks and destorys everything, handle groups of 5 mobs with the Zealot and exit with full health and mana)

    Group PvE Spec (Chloro/Lock/Dom):

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...GcoRR.xx0V0VVx

    (Standard spec for healing groups)

    Solo PvE Spec for Elites (Chloro/Ele/Dom):

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...coRR.Ex000xoAz

    (Can solo any elites with this for the most part, and have handled up to 3 lvl 50 Elites at once, I don't use really any of the Elementalist abilities except Stone Armor, Revitalize and the Rock pet whose health never drops below 90% with Synthesis running. Only Elites I can't handle are those outside of Greenscale Blight which appear to be "special")

    Default 38

    I'm only level 38 but I really enjoy my stormcaller spec. It's all air damage and puts out a ton of dps with enough cc and knockbacks to keep me alive.. usually.

    p.s. I don't actually use the lesser stone elemental, it's pretty worthless at this level.

    I'm being a bit dull and going Dom/Stormcaller... It seems to be a good mix so far for the extra air crit from the Stormcaller tree
