    Default New mage question

    As a new mage Im kind of lost with the various souls. What souls or build would you recommend for under 30 to PVP (warfronts) and what souls for PVE? Any help would be appreciated.

    If you like Pet classes - Necromancer (Elementalist pets are frills...not very useful for PVP).

    Stay away from Stormcaller (and I would argue Elementalist, but others would disagree).

    Warlock, Necromancer, Dominator, and Pyromancer are the best PVP souls, in general.

    Chloromancer is passable...but not very good at defending themselves, and you will be target #1 for the bad guys. Not many instants, not much DPS, and a lot of slow casting times.

    Dominator is a Crowd Control specialist. Effective in PvP, but not a "killer"...more of a team support type.

    Archon is good for raids, not so much small groups...but it pairs fairly well with Pyro.

    Chloro/Warlock, and Warlock/Necromancer pair VERY well together.

    Pyromancer is a really good DPS and CC one, but it really isn't so hot early on...it gets better with levels.

    My build is Chloromancer/Warlock...it is one of the most common pairings.

    Warlock/Necro and Pyro/Dominator are probably the other two really popular builds.

    Thanks Vihar for the info. What is your third soul and any recommendations for how the build should look at 20 or 30?
