    You should probably save yourself some trouble and just spec necro for leveling.

    This build requires you to be level27+

    22 points in necro for feign dead and skeletal knight
    8 points in warlock for reconstruct
    and spend the rest of your points in pyro

    After 1.1, Pet holds aggro all day long
    At lv43 im 1-2shotting mobs dead before they can do anything
    Its kind of weak against elites though.

    What's your spell rotation? I am 20 and a bit bored atm because my Skeleton doesn't hold aggro. I also just throw a few dots on it and then have to repeat that. The bolts/dd's just don't do that much DPS to warrant a 2 sec cast I dont think ?

    It used to be cinderburst(beginning of fight and every opportunity), countdown, flamebolt every cooldown, fireball til dead.

    Now, I hardly use countdown since mobs dead too fast

    My rotation now is cinderburst(beginning of fight and every opportunity, pyromancer's armor proc) flame bolt(for +10% dmg, wildfire proc), and fireball for filler. I hardly ever cast fireball since procs are going off left and right, the fight is over too fast.

    Sometimes the mob is dead after cinderburst/flamebolt fight is over instantly without any fight at all.

    Comparing improved fireball to improved void bolt, sure void casts faster but i think fireball has a higher innate crit chance + talented fireball crit chance + fireball dot proc.

    That's probably isn't exactly a "leveling spec" as the OP asked...

    I have a build for you. This build splits points between Pyro & Ele a bit more then what people like BUT you can do great dps out of instances. Having Greater Elemental Affinity and Imp Quickening Elements is a major plus. I can solo a lot of heavy elites and healing em with QE is op. Having the Warlocks Sacrafice life for Mana & Reconstruct to get Life from Charge, you can last all day with great dps and no aggro. In instances just switch pets. This is by no means a Raiding spec and for heroic versions of the instances which I am not in this may or may not be good for it. Try it and see how you like it. The second build I got from a poster a few days ago that I bookmarked.

    I hope you were kidding... I loled anyway... A PYRO leveling build with 22 in Necro 8 in Lock and just 5 in Pyro? It sure looks like a Necro build to me.

    To the OP... Pyro main, Archon 2nd and adopt a pet to hold aggro with your 3rd (Ele works best.) That'll take you to 31.

    But like others said, Pyro just isn't a great leveling spec unless you're always grouped. All it takes is buying a second role and using that for a real questing/leveling spec (Ele/somethin, Necro/something, Chloro/something... the "something", more often than not = Warlock.)

    Pyro is a subpar spec for PvE leveling. Necro/Lock is probably the best.
