    Default Chloro/Dom OP?

    Love me some Chloro/Dom; no one scores on damage done, healing done, and still rocks the as-yet-un-monitored intangible contributions that lead to WF victories while leaving the other team saying "WTF happened?"

    Problem is, this is 10-49 experience I'm speaking from (well ok, mostly 40-49...). Anyone with some heavy gear/ranks played chloro/dom in 1.5 that can tell me it feel the same once you get the loot/presige at 50?

    34 dom 32 chloro is fantastic at any gear level, probably the best spec when you're getting started with PvP. As you gear up, you'll notice you can actually kill people instead of just depleting resources and "disarming" melee.

    I'd save the 51xx dps builds for R6 or better - Dom and Chloro are requisites to lower gear level combat, and if not both, you'll probably want one of them in your build.

    The chloro and dom "requirements", what's that about exactly? Providing support or non-hp/valor factored offense while letting R6+ do the heavy lifting?
    There is no better cause to fight than the simple need that blood be spilled. Do not fight because you receive reward or praise. Fight because that other bastard exists solely to die at the end of your blade.

    Chloro/dom is good at one thing: saving its butt. Not even exceptionally good at that. Go 51 dom, you'll have more then 1 useful ability that way.
    Oh, btw, the little killing power this build has gets decimated by the first purge you catch, so yeah, it's pretty much 100% useless if you aim to kill somebody.

    When mages will be restricted into transforming themselve to level 1 squirrels without any skill, people will start saying that level 1 squirrels are op and require to nerf them.
    Please stop calling anything mage is doing every slightly good "OP", is just offensive.

    Chlorodom only has charged shield as a purgable buff. Or are you talking about cleanses?

    If you do not start a new toon and level in WF trying out different Domi builds its of no help. Most people realize its not fun and go play some other mage build.

    Especially now that you have an army of Eradicates and Fell Blades any half brained MM will immediately turn to any Domi with voids out and Eradicate.

    ummmm ... wrong ? good chloro dom gets load of kills and 0 deaths ...


    hers mine build

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...o.MsVzqkVMbk.L

    it has grate potential but u need to figure it out by urelve , here r some tips :

    u can insta cast natures fury after casting transmogrify and stormshacke empowerd by entropic viel but u need 2 be fast with ur fingers i use it for burst dmg folowed by ruin . both spells land at the same time and if they crit u get about 1500 + dmg

    second - many players attack split personality ghosts for blood thirsty procs , its a pain but u can put some hurt on them casting mass charge shied after casting split - its about 200 dmg every time someone aoe ur split ghosts

    third - put stormshacke on someones pet , it almoes never get clensed

    and a lot more ;)

    Ofc there are ways to make your spells work, but face it: even when they do, they are still lacking in damage department.
    Oh and, btw, getting instant nature's fury over 1.5 cast time does not really add to the burst damage. Just lets you cast it on the move.

    well its not like u get +75% dmg with draining bolt folowed by dark fury and devouring shadows and almoes insta kill someone but chloro dom has it ways to burst someone down fast - not all the way but let say 60-70% of hp in 2 seconds , if cd's r up

    split > squirtlel > ss > traiterous > entropic up > nf folowed by ruin

    yeah it is 5 global cd's but targent is not doing anything in meantime , and when he does he drops dead aftter 3-5 second's (if hes stupid ofc ...)

    here r some shots of mine performence as chlorodom in games that we actualy lost (pug ofc)

    Chloro/ Dom is actually the spec I use if I am going into a WF to heal. At rank 8 with full gear you also do a ton of damage output. I actually prefer this spec over Chloro / Lock.

    I use a different version of this spec than most people and I'll link it to you when I get home (at work).

    As a fresh 50 you will do better keeping a Chloro / Dom than changing to a heavy DPS spec, it isn't disappointing. Until you get a number over your head.... lol

    Sorry for the delayed response - but I'm generalizing that low spell power (sub R6) simply is not effective in warfronts for the DPS souls. Chloro and Dom are most beneficial with dispels, debuffs, and CC that still make an impact regardless your gear. You pretty much need one or both in your build to not be a detriment to the team.
