    51/10/5. Chloro/lock/ele.

    (DPS? I'm done with that pending buffs to us, or nerfs to everyone else. I'm expecting both.)

    ^ I agree fully and I'm in the same situation... It's like constantly entering a race vs ferraris with a stock ford focus wondering how much faster you'll go with a better exhaust.... it just doesnt really matter at this point.

    34/32 sc/ele. It's not that competitive with wars/rogs but it's about the best you're going to get in terms of consistant mage dps across all of the current raid content. There are other builds which are good in many places but sc/ele is always good.

    There's always that zoomancer abomination.

    sc/dom is more single target dps then the zoomancer. it also has a ton of aoe when needed, and you don't have a full time pet.

    i use sc/ele for aoe heavy fights still, but still checking to see if sc/dom is enough aoe i can run it full time.
    Experience is the best teacher.. if you can afford the tuition.

    PvE dmg (ST or AoE) - SC/ele BS/AB. It was better and continue better, considering all mage DPS specs.
    Heals- 51 chloro/10 lock/5 ele.
    PvP damage - 51 lock/15 AM. Yeah this rocks!

    There are other pvp builds but this one is most focused on dmg.

    38/28 necrolock

    Competitive DPS, simple rotation, can be easily modified for AOE or ST, scales extremely well with Raid buffs.
