    I am not entirely sure what "20% damage charge spell" you are referring to but to answer your question Pyro/Ele (35/31) is better then 51 Pyro.
    51 Pyro could possibly be better for Fire Storm AoE damage, but situations where you need to prioritize that are rare.

    Well if you ARE 51 Pyro, Fulminate is worth casting.

    never go 51 pyro, its bad and i mean really bad for pve, i have seen some skilled mages use it in pvp and they "can" melt face but still its not suggested.

    if you want pyro in pve you absolutely must try 34 pyro/ 32 elementalist

    It depends on your definition of "Worth it". Are you going for the highest possible DPS? Then no, no it's not.

    If your definition of "Worth it" is OMG THIS IS AWESOME BIG NUMBERS WOO! Then yes, yes it is.

    imo dont go 51 pyro

    either go elementalist for 5% critical or archon for 5% fire dmg.

    edit: oh soz i though this was about PvP

    having played both 51 pyro with archon and ele and a pyro/ele with zero archon, the pyro/ele was by far better in pve.

    with pyro/ ele you get 45 sec of burst dmg every two min. 51 pyro you dont but its base damage is higher. after several parses the base damage didnt make up for the ele 30% crit bonus nor the 15 sec 50% damage buff that resets with the pryo ability (hence 30sec plus 15 sec of burst.

    however with the 51 pyro if spec right with archon you get NO power problems. and i mean NO power problems.

    not sure about pvp with the 51 after the changes were made. perhaps some one else can comment on that.

    i am trying to make a pyro because they have the 44point ground of strength. i like the immu countral effect, the resistances and pet less, all those can be useful on some bosses fights. what i wanted help on next is where i put rest of the points. warlock or archon?

    not advisable -- less dps -- but if you want to go this route

    51 pyro / 11 archon (up to leeching flames) / 4 elementalist (4% crit)

    you could also try

    51 pyro / 15 chloromancer

    the chloro gives the int buff whenever a spell is cast (e.g. ruin), and lets you heal a bit.

    5% fire dmg is bad because of Burning Bright giving you 6% fire damage+whatever else you put it in, such as Wildifre, reduced silence etc
