    Default Need some mage help

    Hey, I need some advise about how to play my mage I think.. My mage is currently level 31 and I feel like either my builds are all wrong, or I'm doing something all wrong since I can't seem to find a good balance between damage, survivability and utility.

    My first build is Chloro/Archon/Domi which I use only for group backup healing.

    I'm pretty happy with the overall performance of this build, but I feel like I might be messing up my rotation/cast priority. Does anyone have some advise regarding this?

    My second build is Necro/Warlock/Archon which is my main solo/questing build atm.

    This build gives me plenty of PvE survivability, but I feel like I'm not doing enough damage and my PvP survivability is close to zero since I have no instant CC abilities. Being on a PvP server this can obviously cause some problems when I encounter enemy players while questing. I also feel like this build is a bit too dependant on Charge for both survivability and damage which sometime can take a bit too long to build up. Does anyone have any advise regarding tweaks to the build or general playstyle advise for how to survive on a PvP server with this build?

    Okey, last build is Pyro/ElemSummon/Archon which I want to use for questing because it has at least 1 instant CC and a breakout ability.

    I feel like this does considerable more damage quicker than the second build, but my biggest issue with it is that the Greater Earth Elemental sucks at tanking compared to the Skeletal Knight. I usually end up with aggro in most fights and as a result I have to drink often to regen the lost HP. I also feel like I have considerably less HP/armor with this build (which is probably not true, but I still feel weaker). If anyone think they know what I'm doing wrong please feel free to share.

    So, thats my problems. Thanks in advance for any help and tips.
