    Default Glass Cannon Build?

    What's a good glass cannon build? That's what I'm best at in MMOs. I am currently level 25.

    Glass Cannon builds exist, just not for Mages.

    Ignore the lvl 50 balance issues for now. You can melt face in the low level brackets. Try something like this. Next get charged field and deathly shards. Then get up to ice shield in elementalist and the improved lightning strike.

    If you're not a tank then you're glass no matter what in this game.

    Agree.

    There's no glass cannon build for mages (Rift only). You get glass BB gun build, glass tickle build and glass suicidal build. Pick one.

    You forgot the glass bending-over-and-taking-it-hard build. At least thats the spec Ive been running since 1.2.

    Just wanted to add a few things.

    You do want to get the 31 pt lightning storm asap so just use your extra points for elementalist.

    Electrocute is totally broken in pvp since the last patch because of the change they made with channeled spells and range/los. Since it's technically a melee range attack, if the knockback occurs the channel will immediately stop and do no damage because the target is no longer in melee range

    The shell shock talent should be awesome except A) since 1.2 if the target is immune to the root effect they will usually not take damage or have electrify stacks put on them which makes raging storm unreliable and B) since electrocute is currently useless, half the talent is wasted anyway.

    btw.. i've been thinking.. may be this build might be our glass cannon but it seems you need lots of crit in your build and you have to spam fireball non stop:

    This one is glass arite. Im still missing the cannonbit, comparing to warriors/rogues hitting 3-4k dps in pvp bursts, and at the same time not even being glass.

    This one looks really fun with all the instant casts. It looks like it would play like a Frost Mage in wow. Lots of empowered Ice Lances (or Ice Shear) to the forehead. I'm gonna try this one out.
