    Default Archons...

    Correct me if I'm wrong but... aren't they (archons obv) considered a Support soul by most/all? Soo... why does it say an offensive soul? That's kinda like saying a chloro is a offensive soul... lol

    I also find it strange how no one brings it up.. I mean.. the very first line of the archon description is "A support specialist who..."

    Thoughts?
    ...and that is how you get to llama school!

    I smell information! o_O

    Dominator is considered the support spec by Trion, apparently. If you put a certain number of points into it, you're flagged as support. Without it, an Archon will be flagged as DPS. And that's not all that misleading, actually. I can pull 1.1k as Archon on Plutonus, which is far more than support should pull I think. Sure, it's not clear what the spec is, and it'd be nice if Archons were flagged as support.

    Mage categorization is kinda funky. In my chloro role I have 15 in Dom and it flags my 51 chloro as support. While spending 30 pts in Dom and the rest in necro shows as offensive, and offers more support.

    Oh its very simple.

    Cloro is classified as Healer and Supporter

    So a 51 Chloro + 10 Dom = 61 points support and 51 points heal > Support.
    a 36 Necro (DD) + 30 Dom = 36 DD and 30 support > DD

    Archon is classified as DD and Support
    So Arch /Dom = Supp
    Arch/DD = DD

    Default Ah..

    Well that makes sense. Didnt really consider that they have things flagged as both and you need multiple souls to make the certain aspect shine more than the other.

    Thanks for clearing that up!

    I find it amusing that we seem to be able to queue the Support slot in LFG no matter what spec we are...

    I do the same, and also walking with the ghost in me to the boss, and also reflecting the spell from matron ( dont know the name right now)

    well i have p8 gear mixed with my t3/4 gear. Use the instants while im walking etc. I was surprised how much dps i can get with archon, its like a real dps class
