    Default ULTIMATE PvP annoyance build

    This build is mainly targeted at healers and people on objectives that are getting heals


    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...Atk0s.MsVubk.c

    essence link: 30% less healing recieved 100% uptime
    void shroud: 50% less healing received 100% uptime

    Last Gasp: DoT, if they are healed it puts up another stack

    priests lament: 60% chance to get 3 sec silence when casting a heal
    arresting presence: AoE silence

    transference + mana Wrench: nuff said

    consumption: removes buffs on enemies (hope the chloro doesn't notice hahaha)

    squirrel: for those pesky champions/sabs

    full necro pet + dots for uninterrupted damage while you are busy CC'ing casters (the necro pet rapes most mages if ignored as it usually is)

    void bolt: not sure why you'd resort to using this but i had 3 points left over so its a good backup spell

    I see your thought process, some of my suggestions would be:


    Remove

    arresting presence - too situational and not worth the charge or 1 point, you will most likely die if you are that far in to silence any caster in range.
    greater consumption - not worth the 2 points to get 600 or so mana back even if it does remove a buff
    symbiote - not worth it either, pitiful healing even at max
    detonate - its questionable, its only good if you want to send in your pet to become a stun bomb, i believe theres better assignment of points in other trees instead of this gimmick.
    feign death - another gimmick


    everything else in lock tree is ok

    max out controlled opp that should put you enough to get grasping void which is a nice aoe snare and a instacast. you will also get OP will out of this as well. Then the rest should go into magical affinity in lock tree so you can use soul purge more often.

    Just FYI, essence link and void shroud do not stack. Either one will stack with chastise, although that would just be overkill really.

    edit to clarify: Casting either essence link or void shroud on a target with the other one, will cancel the previous one.

    that would defeat the purpose of the build, if you take any points out of necromancer you lose last gasp and pet damage, and for the dom changes there really isnt anywhere else to put those points because you need them to get to the 4th tier dom talents

    24% decrease in pet damage isnt really a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. Its only a multiplier not an additive multiplier to overall increased pet damage so it doesnt scale the way you think it would. Test it out on a dummy and you will see.

    Also with master chirurgeon, you have a more robust pet, yet you also want it to become a bomb when killed. It already has a rather large life pool.

    What do you think?

    You are correct sir. The damage bonus scales really really well with knight because his skills are all high base damage low str modifer. Whilst Zealot is low base high modifiers. Since it seems pet% damage skills are all BASE modifiers....I see no huge change. You would think +30% damage from lich form on a 550 damage bloodspike would be nice? Nope...it did about 25 extra
    the PTS exists for a reason people. Go on, give your feedback, and help make RIFT a better game.
    All the world will be your enemy, Prince of a Thousand enemies. And when they catch you, they will kill you. But first they must catch you; digger, listener, runner, Prince with the swift warning. Be cunning, and full of tricks, and your people will never be destroyed.
