    Default PvP mages.. What spec are you running now?

    The 16/45/5 Necro/Lock/AM is still the best spec in my opinion. Yes, Soul Purge has been nerfed (which definitely limits our ability to get any decent amount of killing blows) but overall, with the DoT damage increase, the spec is just as good as it was in 1.2

    51/10/5 Chloro/Dom/Archmage - Really good PvP healing
    35/16/15 Lock/Necro/Archmage - Lots of single target damage

    I didn't have time to try a 51pt. Dom yet, but I'm hearing good things about it so I'll probably try that later today.

    51 Dom is the only spec worth running now in PvP. Have a feeling Cleric tears will get us nerfed though.

    35wl/16necro/15AM for ultimate survivability

    Been playing around with 35WL 11 Ele 20 archmage

    Phase shift is incredibly underrated, but the CD is still ridiculous. Insta Lightening Strikes are amazing, not sure if I should get icy carapace and use crystaline missiles when oppritunity procs.

    I don't even notice the soul purge nerf.

    Really, I don't.

    It's laggin' like crazy on our servers atm but I really am having a blast playing 51 chloro.

    Very strong healing potential with LGV and Bloom crits always and heals a lot. Not sure though what I think about the castable heal yet. Maybe getting Opportunity into my specc, that would make it at least on occasions useful. If left alone to cast uninterrupted this is a big heal nevertheless.

    I'm having fun ^^

    I'm going with a 34/22/10 Necro/Lock/AM build right now. As I said before, it's fun to be able to be among the leaders in both DPS and dmg taken in a WF. Necro/locks were already hard to kill, but with the increased dmg, things are really gonna get FUN now.

    38dominator/28stormcaller/0archmage lots of aoe potential and cc love the class and the build and have been trying to use it since beta so I'm glad to get the chance

    32chloromancer/32warlock/2archmage or archon when I am a bit frustrated, bc honestly its probably the best build for mage atm. Huge ability to influence groups, deal dmg, and survive. And regularly able to get high (or top) in both dmg and healing stats.
