    Default LF mage aoe leveling build

    Goodmorning people.
    I know that lock/necro/chloro is the best way to level but i dont really like that built....is sooooo boring.
    I was leveling a cleric inqui/cabal using soul drain...was amazing to kill 4 mobs in few seconds.
    I'm trying to level the mage in the same way..AoE!
    Any suggestion?
    I'm lvl 25 now.
    Please help me

    So... you don't like AoE leveling builds... but you want an AoE leveling build?
    I honestly don't see your complaint about Radiant Spores AoE grinding. I have a blast with it.

    Probably a Warlock / Chloro :

    pull some mobs (melee) with dark touch (or life leech if you can). When they are packed enough, radiant spores them all in once, and then spam devouring shadow.

    Bloom / shadow life / draining bolt if things go wrong.

    Sure, it works fine, but you'll have a hard time without someone to heal you or tank all the damage for you.
    Also no nifty tools like Natural Conversion or Choke.

    I thought he was talking about the soul purge build ^^

    So yeah, warlock/chloro is the most efficient aoe grinding for mage (at least for me).

    I remember someone posting an Ele build, with the earth pet tanking multiple mobs while he was AoEing with Burning ground and Fiery Assault. Unfortunately I don't remember the point allocation.

    This is my touch on it. Don't try to use it until level 25, though(can't get AoE Radiant and Mortality until 25).
    I'm actually not sure what the popular version of it is beyond this, though, so someone will have to either correct me or expand on it.
    The general idea is to pick a pet Soul(usually Elementalist, because the Rocks are beefier than the first Skelly, but they both crumble after level 33 to being sneezed at even used as just a pulling tool) for your third, though. I prefer to beef mine up so it'll actually survive, and Necro synergized better than Ele did(though they both have advantages).

    This works extremely well below level 32 or so.
    Then you have to find a different approach, possibly using Elementalist as tertiary just for the Burning Ground spell, which comes quite early.
    Survivability must come from elsewhere.

    While the necro knight has some hope of tanking AOE, it'll cost you mondo points to buff the pet that high and you want at least one other soul for AOE spells, too...

    Go-for-broke AOE with 13 point Spores might work but it's a gutsy thing to do with a dresswearer. =P

    Default I'm trying it but..

    had several corpse run using CHLORO/LOCK SPEC
    Often mobs hit me harder than i hp regen with radiant spore.
    Also trying this spec http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0zRqy.o.Vtcz0xo.VGzz
    after 25 i'm going up in chloro tree.
    Shield up, pull 3-4 mobs with ignite, burning ground and forked lightning. Is not that bad and i can burst mobs better than lock/chloro.
    Btw is funny that clerics have a better aoe soul(s) that let you kill mobs faster and easier

    You're dying because you need to pick up Phytogenesis in the Chloro tree so your healy spores hits 8 targets so you can get healing on all of them.
