    Default Check out my beast PVP / Solo Questing Mage Soul Set up.

    Pyrobiter / Flame Eater
    Pyromancer(61) - Arbiter(13) - Warlock(2)


    I have been using this soul set up for PVP and solo questing for a while now and I am in love with it.

    Strengths

    High Burst DMG - Its Pyro, no need to explain this one.

    High Survivability - Compared to other Pyro specs, this one makes you a formidable opponent for 1 vs 2+ situations. It has very high HP for a Pyro. Arbiter's Storm Front boosts armor by 30% for 30sec every time a charge gen. ability is used above 75 charge (which is almost all the time for Pyro). Combine Storm Front with Life Leech on multiple targets and you are pretty hard to take down. In low HP situations or situations where you know you will be attacked by multiple targets, using Arbiter's Tank buff, Arcane Ward, is very useful.

    High Single Target DMG - Pyro's burst combined with Warlock's DoTs makes you a monster on the battefield. Make sure to have Life Leech, Dark Touch & Countdown on at all times.

    High AoE DMG - More of a Forced AoE than traditional. Using Pyro's Countdown and spreading with Firestorm combined with Warlock's Life Leech & Dark Touch, You can put out some pretty good AoE numbers. Example: With 3-5 targets you want Life Leech on at minimum 2, Dark Touch & Countdown on all using Firestorm to spread.

    Weaknesses

    Mobility - Plan to use some Crucia items No speed buffs unless you count Flicker.

    Target for other team - After the healer, you will more than likely be the next most targeted player because people see you killing people using Pyro spells and think you are soft and easy to take down


    Feel free to use it and let me know what you think!

    By going 13/2 Arb/Lock your burst is low.

    At NT's launch, because of scaling and low CP, 2 WL was better than 3 Harb and in PVP I loved having the dots finish people/help with LOS.

    But dropping points into Arb for the survivability kind of defeats the purpose of Pyro. Pyro is about burst, positioning, and escapability.

    I actually end up having more intelligence in Pyro/Biter/Lock than any of my other Pyro set ups. The survivability aspect from Arbiter has no disadvantage to the DPS of Pyro. Only makes it strudy.

    Your Int may be higher but your SP is much lower than other Pyro specs. You also lose 13% dmg bonus from gift by going Arbiter.

    Your burst will be lower than other pyro specs and much lower than other pvp specs from other callings. You may think that your burst is high when you see a lucky fulminate crit but it's not. Reliable burst is what matters.

    6.5%. Each point in Arbiter gives +0.5 damage.

    ... why? Honestly, were we having problems with OP Arbiters wrecking face and single-handedly destroying enemy teams?

    If you're wanting to make a "PvP Pyro" spec, 10sc 5arb is about as crazy as it gets, otherwise it's the same old PvE spec.

    And for a solo spec, nothing comes anywhere close to Harb with 8 Chloro, from any class.
