    Default New build idea

    Warlock 34/Pyro 23/Elementalist 9

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...oqoek.efu0uz0z


    Advantages:
    • Lots of DoTs
    • Burst - Cinderburst and Lightning Strike
    • Oppurtunity proc for cinderburst and lightning strike while CB is down
    • 10% extra crit chance
    • Pet for better leveling and pve survivability
    • Powerful bind
    • Good silences
    • Warlock armor provides self heal and damage boost

    Disadvantages:
    1. 'Glass cannon' in pvp cause players target you instead of pet.


    I'll add any more things that needed to be added to the lists.

    Ideas for improvement?

    Default Pvp mainly

    I found this spec owns the 30-39 bracket, ill always come out with over 35k damage in any game mode, with fang being highest resulting in 40k+s. the elementalist is just for better pve/soloing and lightning strike to use if opportunity procs while CB is down

    For real burst you need pyro armour and heatwave. These are the basic requirements for using pyro IMO. Relying only on opp procs for burst is just not going to cut it in most pvp encounters.

    If you really want to use a build like this for pvp there are a few things you might consider changing.

    Take all 5 points out of improved warlock armor and move them to Dark Power. Same 10% damage buff but it is passive and cannot be removed from you by another player like Warlock armour can (and often is).

    Take the one point out of Ele (the sheild) and put it into anything else (maybe draining bolt or vitality or pyro armor)?

    Move all three points off of improved grounding and move to improved flamebolt (just bring some mana pots if you plan on surviving long enough to run out of mana).

    There are some other things that you could tweak as well but they come down to playstyle. You should also consider maybe making a 38 or 44 point warlock build if you like using dots. You can still get your lightning and cinder on opp procs if you want to play like that and you gain more passive damage, an instant mass fear and a good dot. The downside is you lose some good pyro stuff like intellect buff, IC, inferno, etc. Maybe something like this:
