    Default ArchMage ?

    Hey , I have been really unsure and cannot decide on the best souls for a mage. This is what im using at the moment. http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1zv0s.cIRhzqa0z.e.0z

    Does anybody actually use the PvP soul ? Is it worth it ?
    I only do quests when im waiting for a war-fronts so i play PvP quite often.

    If you could say what works well for you that would be great!

    Thanks

    Yes, it is.

    At least for the CC breaker, and the 5 points to +15% player damage.

    The rest is personal preference.

    But you really should have the CC breaker and the +15% damage.

    Okay thanks for the reply.
    I was just wondering because nobody ever mentions the archmage in their build.
    I very rarely use my cc ( Maybe once or twice a game or even less ) Is the dominator soul really worth having ?

    I am not sure about PVP, but for warfronts ArchMage is useless - CC breakers has 3 minute colldown.

    What do u want to do as a mage?

    anyway, even at lower lvls of prestige (rank 1) u can use 10 points on the AM soul. +15% dmg and -15% change do be crited and those are very helpfull

    A warlock/domi/AM is realy fun to play! A LOT of buttons nice surv and nice CC/disable
    u can be REALY annoying if well played. The final build will depend on exactly what u wanna do

    the 15% dps boost against players is necessary to do any damage at all.

    Since the game's still fairly new and there aren't a ton of mages at rank 6 yet (and thus able to fully use the archmage soul), it may be awhile yet before we see any serious builds including the archmage soul and putting it to stellar use. Just my 2 cents.
    Red ball + fulminate + really craptacular dom/pyro spec trying to hard cast transmog and pray your spell lands before some squirrel punching moron eats your controlled opp proc = +1 board warrior keeping mages from being realistically balanced in PVE or PVP. 1.0-1.2's best combo in the game. RIP FOTM Pyro rollers

    I run Pyro 51, Arch 15 and regularly smash face with Nevin's Lament + Fulminate. Also have a few points in overload that is a nice 20% to crit damage.
