    Default New DPS builds

    SO with the latest updates that came down the line today what are the best DPS builds now? I just barely hit 60 a few days ago and while my chloromancer heal build is solid the only other build I really like is more for leveling .. the GRavelord archtype with like 41 necro, 30-something warlock and rest in pyro.. What's the best builds for single target and AOE in dungeons, chronicles, raids etc.. now? and yes I'll be filing through the builds section too but I wanted to find out the opinion of those that eally know their stuff at 60 now and have been running Dungeons/raids/chronicles and can eally speak knowledgably on the subject

    The specs you will want immediately are 61 Necro, 61 Harbinger and 61 Pyro. The remaining 15 pts for each are still being debated although differences are very minor.
    61 Harbinger for maximum Single Target with good AoE and great Cleave on a CD
    61 Pyromancer for Ranged Single Target when Harbinger isn't an option
    61 Necromancer for AoE or sustained Cleave

    Necromancer still does pretty good Single Target DPS too, so pretty much any fight with adds it will outperform Pyro.

    Necro/Harb is a bit more of a niche spec and not a high priority to learn, get the others first.

    Appreciate it Primal but I don't have Harbinger and likely won't for another month,.

    This thread is about 61necro/15ele/0pyro, so you have one option for dpsing without harb.

    I can vouch for Necro and Harb as being fun and good specs. I also play Warlock, and based on the parsing I have seen (I am not a raider) it fares well...maybe a touch below the others but with better survivability (imo).
