    I am partial to the Pyromancer so I will give you my take on that. I am sure you get other opinions and I recommend you take all you get and try them out.

    Since you are lvl 15, you have 20 soul points so i would recommnd this: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0zIvz.tc0c..V

    The 5 in Archon is to give you the 5% damamge add to all fire spells. It also gives you the Pillaging Stone Buff. From a rotation standpoint, at lvl 15, there really is no huge rotation but with this build I would

    Flame Bolt -> Countdown -> Fireball until both finish cooldown, repeat. If you are in a tank and spank fight, use Ground of Power to get the 10% extra damage. Somehow work in Pillaging Stone until you get your 5 stacks then work it in every 5 minutes to keep your buff up. If you have time, cast Searing Vitality to give you the Endurance bonus but only if you have time. You could macro a few of the instants and hit them every 8-10 seconds during a fight but there are as many pros as cons to that andis more of a personal preference.

    With this build going forward, you can do quite a bit of damage at higher levels. I run this currently and it works for how I play: http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...ezusuto.xx.V0j

    Hopefully this helps you out!

    I forgot also, with this build, you want to cast Fire Armor and Ashen Defense to give you an added fire damage bonus as well as armor. Both last 1 hour and only need refreshed after an hour or after you die.
