    Default Leveling build post 1.3?

    I've done a search but they're all from before 1.2, is there any difference really as far as PVE goes? Looking for just straight up raw speed and minimal downtime.

    Lock/Necro is even more the way to level after 1.3 went live, given the buffs to DPS for both souls.

    There are definitely a tooon of builds that are still very strong. Nec/Lock is way up there.

    I'm also a fan of the Lock/Chloro (about 16 in chloro, rest in Lock). Similar kill speed, ability to regen health/mana without stopping, no pet management.

    I also keep going back to an SC/Elem (21 in Ele for 'better' pet, rest in SC) build. It feels like I've got a much better kill speed, both for single targets and groups. The downside is finding a way to get my pet rock to tank all the mobs without dying or me pulling aggro.

    I do think that, as you go up in levels and AoEing becomes more and more viable, it's "the way to go". Killing 5 mobs one at a time over the course of a minute versus killing all 5 in about 15 seconds really starts to add up. I played a Just/Inq Cleric as an alt and spent the last 10 levels pulling 5-10 mobs and AoEing them without dying. Going from that to single-targets is a rough, rough transition.

    You can take this from 1 to 30 without any problem:

    30 + (respec the previous build as you no longer want imp void bolt for an AE build):
