    There are a few good DPS builds, but they all involve using Pyromancer and Warlock to one degree or another. In order of ease to play from easiest to hardest (which is also the relative DPS potential from lowest to highest), they are as follows:

    51pt Warlock (See Xeno's guide)

    51pt Pyromancer (51 Pyro/15 Lock/0 Archon - you can find guides, but they give differing builds and sometimes poor advice. The build I've linked is what I've found does the best DPS for me.)

    36/30 or 35/31 Pyro/Lock (36/30 - no Firestorm, 36/30 - with Firestorm, 35/31. Again, I don't see any great guides for this atm, but check them out anyway for some info.)

    38/28 Lock/Pyro (Defilemancer - See Shaeyl's guide)

    There are also other builds using other souls that are fun to play and useable in dungeons and tier 1 raids, but they tend not to be viable in tier 2 raids and onwards, or only get used in niche situations. For example SC/Pyro, SC/Ele, and so on.

    Just starting out i would recomend you using one of these 2. Both are decent dps although warlock might give you a little practice in DoT management before you start tryinf the more complex builds.

    @Lalothen, I'm curious why you would choose to put 2 points in hp rather than take the 2% fire damage across the board from Archon. My personal choice is to use 51 pyro 10 lock 5 archon but each to their own i guess.

    Oops! Brain-fart moment.

    Yes 51/13/2 - no points in Vitality, 2/5 Soul Fire.

    Thanks for the catch there.

    sc/pyro is great for 5 mans
    Zykey Mage - 8/8 ID, 4/4 PF

    This, I love running sc/pyro in 5mans, it has amazing AoE with good ST all in one spec. You have Flicker and can spec into ride with the wind to keep up on the fast-paced runs. Overall its a pretty fun spec to play, lots of big #'s floating around and not as demanding as say a 38/28 spec.

    Unfortunately it has no real use outside of 5mans and Raid-Trash

    I have used this build even in a couple raid fights where AoE is needed and we're low on warriors.
