    Default Any PvP spec any1 cares to share?

    I need a good pvp spec that does not consist of pyro, chloro or dominator as the MAIN soul

    Ground of strength pyro is probably the strongest of the 3 you mentioned.
    Possum.

    Warlock as a main soul is very strong as well in PvP. I'm surprised you didn't list it.

    51 pyro 15 archmage

    38 Dom 28 warlock

    and i'm testing a 51 archon burning purpose build now... but looks like i'll be getting rid of this one. Not enough control and too much group reliance for this.

    So as it stands, I have a stormcaller/ elemental build for PvE aoe

    44 point chloro 22 dom for Pve and Pvp healing.

    Anyone else got some interesting specs to try out?

    Decent damage and tons of utility to keep you up to dish it out.

    Perfect for WF when you don't have dedicated healers.

    Whoops just re-read OP.


    I'd have to say the only options are Lock and Necro.
    Elementalist and Stormcaller seem ok on paper but are fairly lackluster in PvP due to pet suckage and cast times, respectively.

    Get rid of the 5 on Iron Will... Overpowering Will is crap at the moment, till they remove the cast time IMO. Even then, I wouldn't get that skill.

    I would put 5/5 into Efficient Control, drop acumen to 0, get all the 1 point abilities (silence especially) and max out storm shackle (main dps). You can then spend the remaining points in Split Personality or Acumen or mix and match.

    Very good advice. Heres what I would do... http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...0uikqMsk.EVb0h

    Gives you a heal, and Stream of Reclamation is a great way to burn someone down after you shackled them. It's also a really quick way to build charge.

    Not sure what you're trying to accomplish with that build - Archon is very nice for group buffs, plus I haven't played it so no issues there. But the necro tree seems odd. 1 pt. for extra death damage? 3 pts in Fresh Graves? Are you using a necro pet? If so, you're not spec'd high enough to get one that will last more than a few seconds in group pvp.

    Elementalist tree looks a little off too - 2% crit, -4% damage, no exposure ... actually the more I look the more head-scratching this build gets. I'm almost thinking you randomly put pts in as many abilities as possible with almost no synergy whatsoever.

    Sarathor's spec wouldn't last 10 seconds in a battle. You have barely any CC and your DPS is lackluster.
