    Question Continuing with Mage after a break

    I'm coming back after a long break of Rift, I have a Mage who is almost 59. What do you suggest would be a good build to continue leveling with?

    TIA!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4EBbtVbE2x8 its not the max DPS Spec but a solid Leveling Spec with sufficient self-healing.

    It is still a solid Spec for questing and mindless killing of opponents. The other variants with 61 Harbinger / Stormcaller or Elementalist / Chloro but also works.The only change that was made since the Guide you dont need cast Ethereal Flux in your Macros and 61Harb/13Sc/2Ele doing more damage these days. If you dont need the heal from Chloro try this spec you need it anyway with Level 65.

    Tank

    It is always tank for all classes. That way you can get LFG classic dun. pops, as that is where the best XP is, all the way to level 65. People are sitting around in LFG waiting for a tank to queue up.

    Default Just Came Back as well

    I just came back to the game as well, and I am looking around at some mage stuff. Anyway, what are the 65 specs for mage today. Been looking through the forums, and it seems like 61 harb and Ele are the go to dps specs. I imagine not too much has changed with Arb and Chloro. What about Archon? Still Harbchon or bust? I will keep reading through the information here, but it always take a minute to find good info.

    Just so you know I left not too long after HK came out. Progressed through the first boss of T2, and then had real life stuff to deal with.

    Been doing some testing and it seems like 3 button Ele, and Pyro pull almost identical numbers... Could just be gear as I am sitting at 15k sp with 2800cp in t1 gear (1225 hit), but that is pretty disappointing. I mean I can stick to harb, but it is upsetting that the class has been dumbed down to the point that you can maintain a dot and be on par with pyro. Not that Pyro is complicated these days. Eh whatever I am an old man just crying about how things were better back when you actually had to work for things.
