    Question Thinking of a spec...

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1z...xoM.efueuusuts

    What do you think as far as dps for PvE damage for experts and raids?

    Any comment or suggestions would be helpful thanks!

    With the DPS fix coming a 51 pyro will do well in a raid and arching buffs are necessary for raids.

    51 Pyro isn't as useful as Pyro/Ele, and partial Archon is worthless since your auras will just be overwritten by the real Archon.

    might be viable for 10 man (we have a 51archo in 10 man), but it mages no sense in 20man
    in 20 man u got a 51 points archont and he will kill u for overwriting his buffs

    I thought of making a pyro archon build, after 1.3 killed my Warchon builds by making Neddra's Influence exclusive to death DoTs.

    It's similar to yours but I went for 32 Archon for Flaring Power. I wouldn't use it outside of 5 man content.

    For how can I make this viable for raiding? Drop Archon pick something else or change soul points? My guild has a spot in a 10 man for me and soon we will be doing 20 man and I really wanna make pryo work with something for awesome DPS... Tried elem but as a T1 geared mage (all epics) doing t1's and t'2 I still can only get 620 DPS max and usually I do 450-500. Any feedback or recommadations would be very much appreciated!

    34 Pyro, 32 Ele 0 archon

    Only use fire-based spells, its ok to open up with 5 pillage stones to get more intel.

    Use Intesnsify Elements(IE), than Heatwave to reset the IE cooldown.

    For AE drop Burning Ground and double-tick Fire Storm (end/restart it right after 2nd tick)

    Single target... fireball spam seems to be the way to go, throw out a flame-bolt to get the 10% buff every 10 seconds, do your best to toggle on internalize charge before releasing cinderburst procs.

    Can you explain why you want more than 0 archon?

    Mana management?
    More DoTs?

    A 51pyro/ x Archon spec isn't the best build available for pyro but many of the lower teir archon talents buff pyro without requiring you to overwrite the other archon's auras. 12int from improved pillaging stone, 5% fire damage, and mana returned on crit + a good fire damage DoT. More mana will allow you to double tick Firestorm more often as well as you'll usually run OOM doing that on heavy AoE fights.
    I don't think there are any fights where this spec wouldn't be able to perform well enough to contribute your fair share of dps though.
