    Default Laksa's Damage-Focused PvP Pyro Dom Build

    Vid : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OE4S9vWMsSQ&hd=1

    Build : http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...c0cdu0z.xx0M0c

    Much in the style of Bleeds, I chose to sacrifice Heat Wave and Imp. Glyphs of Power to go deeper into
    Archmage for increased crit damage.

    So far I've been getting more satisfying damage, with most of the utility of 31/31/4.

    This is my first time with video editing software, still trying to figure things out

    Comments much appreciated!

    I know Screamo plays a build similar to this and does quite well with it, the difference is he uses 31 Dom for TI, which is an amazing skill and can't be missed out on in my opinion. One thing I learned through playing the build for awhile is that TI isn't something you should just use in AoE situations. The CD is short, and throwing it on someone after a Storm Shackle can dramatically increase your burst, especially against a class like Warriors that is constantly spamming abilities.

    I play a build similar to Bleeds, although some points are switched around here and there it is in essence a 31/31/4 build. I've tried specs that go deep into Archmage, and honestly, I didn't miss Heat Wave all that much. What I did miss was Wildfire / Pyro Armor procs which helped a lot during kiting or instances where I had to move frequently.

    This ^

    I do find myself missing Wlidfire and CB in some situations, then when you get that 2-3 GCD killing blow it makes up for it. You really can't miss out on TI though, as energy Denial against rogues is so important right now + burst damage like Saved said.

    I feel like my build is going to take a big hit though when Firestorm is changed because I rely so much on it for pressure damage.

    I definitely agree on having TI, but I'm not sure how it'll weigh against Pyro Armor.
    I suppose having TI at 30 seconds and adding Transference as another instant cast should make up for it in the long run.

    Thanks for the advice guys, will tweak and compare!

    No reflective presence? I guess this explains why most mages keep nuking when I pop it.

    For a bit of spike dmg that is laughable against full valor ppl you miss out on all the goodies Dom gets at higher levels or the healing and utility Chloro provides. It is just not worth it.

    Anyone who says, "goodies" or "yummies" needs to be ignored.
