    Default Choice of Synergy Crystal

    I had been using the Dominion Crystal but with the reliance on Legendary Fire Storm, is the Unworldly Crystal better?

    My parses using the Dominion Crystal i dont have the other Crystal.

    I tried something on the live server today, with the Legendary Rushing Elements i have so many Crystalline Missiles with the reduced cooldown that Ethereal Blast or Legendary Flame Bolt is no longer worthwhile.

    I now use Arcane Manipulation and spam as many Crystalline Missiles with the reduced cooldown as I can and I am close to the 500 K DPS marker.

    Liveserver Parse ! Full expert gear, no consumables and only the 280 Spellpower PA Weapenstone. No fragment higher as Level 6.

    Been getting a bunch of pms and tells in game about whether neural prod vs galvanic so I did some more parses today after messing around with cd blocks a bit and have some improved parses to show.

    They're basically the same. Neural prod is easier and is better for cleave situations. Galvanic will be the better spec after the PTS firestorm nerfs so it may be worth practicing if you aren't familiar.

    Hi Scourge,

    I see you only Spam Crystalline Missiles, you do this to save mana or to use every second from Cycle of Fire and Prismatic Armor Buff ?

    I think pyro in the current state is dead I have not seen anyone playing pyro for a long time apart from hybrid specs.

    I am new to mage and I am curious what the CD Block macro is for in Billy's posted build? I understand the Spam and trash macro but not when to use the other

    Quite simply, you use the CD block Macro every 30 seconds it increases your Elemental Burst and Fire Storm damage.

    You'll have to be more specific about what spec you want to play. But since you asked, I posted my 61 Warlock guide which is still really good right now. Then it will be ok when 4.1 hits.

    Look in the guides section for other things you might want to play.

    I do not know if your up on PTS recently but, Warlock took a major hit across the board major. Your guide is good though Warlock lost a huge chunk of dps even the dots are way below what they are now.

    Yeah I said in the first paragraph of the guide it's getting nerfed. It's still good though. Will be sort of close to Harb once harb gets another nerf on PTS (which is coming)

Aside from the spam macro below, I macro together Intensify Elements and Neural Prod with Fire Storm and Elemental Burst --- so these are cast about every 30 seconds. I have a key for managing Volcanic Eruption which I cast whenever it's available. And one to keep Ignite up at all times. A key for Fire Storm to cast it if the mob moves and if the Neural Prod macro is on CD. I start the fight with Raging Elements but then let the macro keep it up. Follow that with the Neural Prod macro, Volcanic Eruption and then into the spam macro until any of the above come off CD.

    This is my spam macro but I think I've thrown too much into it:

    #show Flame Bolt
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast @self arcane manipulation
    cast Internalize Charge
    cast lightning strike
    cast Stormbolt
    cast Icy Carapace
    cast Crystalline Missiles
    cast Flame Bolt
    cast Countdown
    cast Rushing Elements
    cast Raging Elements
    cast Elemental Forces
    cast fireball (this casts only if the above drains charge to near zero)
    petattack

    Thanks in advance for any advice ... LET'S SHOW THOSE REAVERS THE POWER OF THE MAGES!!!!
    this build i test is low for lvl 70 max 250k dps on 3 min very low
