    Default Group geared pyro dps

    Hi,

    I like to play full 51 pyro. I been playing around a bit and found 51 pyro 11 archon 4 chloro quite interesting. I used to have mana problems, archon solved it.

    I'm mostly t2 geared, missing 2-3 upgrades. SP 921, SC 817 - zero buffed

    I parse around 800 dps on longer fights.

    Is this any good for group geared pyro or should do better? Any grouped geared pyros here could post their numbers?

    Regards,

    51 Pyro is useless in PvE.

    35 pyro/31 ele is still the best pyro build, thought if you REALLY hate pets then I think that spec is fairly good for T2s nonetheless.

    I think you would be better off using 51Pyro/11Archon/4Elem. Casting a life spell for the Int boost would probably drop your overall dps.

    This is the spec I am thinking about. http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...euusuts.V0xo.m

    Parse them both and let us know which is best.


    You will probably find it is below the Pyro/Elem dps, but the difference may not be as much after 1.4. It may be worth it to you not to have to worry about a pet.

    speak for yourself, I'm usually in top 5 at least in raid dps.

    You should try 51 pyro 10 warlock 5 archon - warlock points in affinity and opportunity for instant casts (useful for cinder burst) and 5 in archon to up fire damage

    51 Pyro is a waste of points when you can go 30 in Warlock for Warlock armor 5/5 with extra crit + increased damage. 5 Archon is also a waste and lowers your damage.

    Its a nice spec if you want it for purely Role Play purposes but for DPS its not effective.

    again speak for yourself. Archon does not lower your damage, 5 points in soul fire ups fire damage by 5%. 51 pyro also gives you fulminate, with which i hav done 5k crits

    Ignore XiL. He's a know troll. He will oppose EVERYTHING you say, with no proof to back it up at all.

    Storm Caller can hit 10 targets for 5K with an instant cast using the right spec.

    P6 gear for 5K with an instant cast using the right spec.

    Off topic : Again, no proof, and constantly proving my point. (wouldn't let me quote...?)

    On topic : Pyro is still good, just not as good as it used to be. I still <3 the 2k fireball hits every 1 second with heat wave.
    Try chloro/lock, or 51 point lock if you havent already.
