    Default What are in your 5 roles?

    I was thinking-

    1) SC/Ele DPS
    2) Necro/Lock Mobile DPS
    3) WF PvP spec of choice (51 dom for me until i get rank)
    4) 51 Archon - support
    5) 51 Chloro - run dungeons if people need heals / faster queue

    I'm gonna be fresh 50 on my mage (have t1 cleric t2 war), just curious what other people have in their roles since it seems like there's a lot of good builds to choose from.

    I left out a pyro/ele build since most people seem to parse higher with sc/ele.

    Heh don't have five roles at the moment. Still don't have a 110% mount. No moneyz - god damn artifacts!


    1) Necrolock (Defile - 38/28)

    2) Pyroele (35/31)

    3) Chloro (51/11/4 - 11 dom and 4 lock)

    4) Chlorolock (36/30 - shared PVP/PVE spec)

    I know role 4 should be slightly different for PVP but even when I get role 5 it will be SC/ele and I prioritise PVE so won't change it for PVP optimisation

    Running just four builds atm:

    34Pyro/32Elem dps build
    50Elem/16Chloro soloing build (which I'm changing to 43Elem/16Chloro/7Pyro)
    51Archon/10Elem/5Warlock support build
    51Chloro tank heals

    I am not into PvP at all. I never tried the necro/warlock builds because I was all warlock'd out from years of WoW and wanted to try different caster roles.

    On my mage I have.....

    51 point chloro - I like to heal and I proved people wrong that pre-50 chloros could not heal well by solo healing (no support) dungeons when re-leveling while having a tank and myself on level for content. It was so much harder than it was on my cleric but it was worthwhile. I was complemented in a complete pug group for being "a healing god." It made me chuckle a little.

    51 point archon - I feel like my guild undervalues having one of these in the raid, they are not even considered so the intent was to show how useful one would be before the raiding times became unfavorable to me

    34sc/32ele - AoE for trash mostly, not my style for single target dps

    38lock/28necro - single target dps for mobile fights, love the necro/lock style, very fluid and mainstream to me without much practise with the combo. I impressed a lot of people in guild with it when I had T1 gear. Used to use 32necro/34lock before my 5th role on him last weekend

    34pyro/32ele - single target low movement was the intent, is not very useful without an archon I believe, will probably just end up being an archon

    My guild is quite casual overall so complete optimization is not a worry of thiers as you can tell. I pulled about 1000 dps earlier in T1 gear with about 140 focus. I did not miss as much as I thought I would, but it definatly hurt when I did. I main a cleric on current server, in 1.1/2 I mained a mage on a diffrent server but do still play one on current server.

    1) SC/Ele
    2)Pyro/Ele
    3) Locknecro Defile
    4) Whatever weird niche spec is going to be required by our raid that night
    5) Another weird niche spec that will be required by the raid OR a solo farming spec depending on the day / what I'm farming.

    PVP DPS/CC: 51Lock/15Archmage(offensive crit)/0Archon
    PVP/PVE Utility: 51Dom/15Archmage(defensive stats)/0Archon
    PVE focus fire/Solo: 51Nec/15Dom/0Archon
    PVE Heals:51Chloro/15Lock(for insta cast heal procs)/0Archon
    Raid Support: 51Archon/15Chloro(lifegiving)/0Archmage

    As you can tell i never really liked the partial builds. I think its mostly that many mage specs have that spot where it says "and an additional .45% for each point spent in blah blah" so I am more attracted to getting those points. I love the possible combinations and have changed some of my builds after seeing the posts on here for new ideas. Plus many of the 51 skills I really like (empowered darkness is sweeeeeeet).

    51 Chloro/15 Archon for 5-10 man heals
    35 Pyro/31 Ele for solo and group PvE DPS
    51 Chloro/15 AM for PvP heals
    44 SC/18 AM/4 Ele for PvP DPS
    38 SC/28 Dom for Isskal interrupt build - though I've taken to swapping that out for a 22 Necro/33 Lock/11 Chloro build after each DH run to make the Chronicle runs faster

    I'm changing mine soon to:

    SC/Ele .. best DPS but I need to practice more
    Pyro/Ele..My main PVE spec I can do in my sleep
    Chlorolock..great for chronicles, pvp and elites
    Chloro...in case I'm needed as full healer
    Necrolock... PVE moving fights

    I would like at least two more souls for:

    Archon..for raids
    Full Warlock/PVP soul build ..another PVP build that makes warriors and rogues cry.

    I'm removing:

    Chloro/Ele which was support but rarely used.
