    If we could get owned by Rouge or Warrior in 3-4 instant hits, who need DoTs?
    But Trion does. They need throw those crap skills somewhere. Ah Mages!!

    I created a dot-centric build on several occasions but Mages are so Fed right now that weather it's pvp or PVE Dot builds from the mage class are just not a viable spec.. without fail on ALL occasions that I parsed a solid DoT build it was weak and had no staying power. In fact 99% of the time they never critted ever and I have a good crit rating at about 32%. I wish it was a good build but right now the DoT builds are trash compared to the others

    Dot builds have almost always been useless in PvP and probably moreso in this game because of all the stacking heal over time flying around.

    PvP has always been about alpha strike, and front loaded damage. It's the reason para/champs are so laughable right now.

    Pvp or pve, dots are not very good. They are pretty underpowered in this game. Take away pets, and pve lock builds fall flat on their face, it's really necro that's propping it up.

    Oh, yeah. Dots and charge are not exactly a peanut butter and jelly combo. They were not meant to be together.

    38Lock/31Necro is a fun spec to play. I wish is was a bit more competitive.

    I dunno, my spiritmaster in Aion rocked in PVP. Of course I had fears that don't break on damage and had more dots that do more then just tickle people. But back to Rift, necros and warlocks need more powerful dots.

    Did they ever let DoT's stack in that game?

    Eh, necro/lock are more synergistic then one "propping the other up". The death damage from necro boosts the locks spells, the dot damage increase from lock boosts soul purge from necro, can cast dots in lich form and they continue to get the benefit of it (helps to refresh a dot or two just as lich is running out).

    ... but I digress, dot's feel like slapping people with several wet noodles... If they toned down the damage of some other spells in necro/lock and upped dot damage I'd be all for it.

    He meant it should be 38/28. If 38/31 existed it'd probably be a pretty damn good build with defile and lich form xD

    I'll never understand what the problem is with stacking dots is. If 4 people each put 2 dots on you and now you have 8 dots that are screwing you up wouldn't you be just as screwed if 4 people just nuked you instead? Actually 4 people nuking you will be worse.
    You can't stop stupid you can only hope to c...o....uh...n?.... Nvm you know what I mean!

    dunno, i get top damage in just about every warfront i play in, using DoT spells - mostly just dark touch and neddras grasp - and radiate death

    maybe yall are doing something wrong if your dots arent effective - and dont gimme parse on the dummy crap - that isnt combat
