    Default Any Archon ideas ?

    I am currently using a 61 Archon / 7 Pyro / 8 Arbiter . Doing 105 - 110 ST dps with it . Anyone finding any other good options ? Sure it can be tweaked to do a little more , built it quick and parsed it , need to play around with the Legendary abilities and mastery .

    for legendaries.....shared vigor.....flaring power....patron's rage.......neural prod........flame bolt

    keep in mind i have 1950 hit right now and parsed 67k 4 minutes....

    my 2 main macros

    #show lava field
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Neural Prod
    target @self
    cast @gtae lava field
    targetlasttarget

    #show Ethereal Blast
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Flame Bolt
    cast ethereal blast
    cast volcanic bomb
    cast earthen barrage
    cast spark shower
    cast surging flare

    keep an eye on flame bolt, when off CD spam it till it uses 3 abilites

    my rotation.....lava field.....flaring.......ethereal blast macro.......granite salvo (to increase the AP and SP)
    you know what, screw this ****

    Default 61 chon build

    Work still in progress but this is the build im using.

    61 chon / 13 pyro / 2 SC

    Legendary : internalised charge, flaring, patron's rage and shared vigor
    Still need to figure out where to put my last legendary point.

    Currently using a spam macro but most of the dps is coming from the 4 archon skills that proc while using Archon's bulwark buff.

    I am still tweaking it. Doing good dps on longer fights 90k-110k (not 2k hit yet) but it's not good on shorter fights.

    I will also work on the stormchon spec once I finish setting up a DPS spec.

    best i have came up with is 61 archon, 15 pyro, 0 dom.

    Was getting a little higher using legendary elemental forces but its super RNG and crit dependent to keep the numbers up.

    Guess I'll just tinker with what I got then , doing around 110K st dps and can maintain that all day long . Thanks for all the ideas though . Like some have said , may not even bother with support any more in raids , no way your buffs will make up for the damage you can do going dps. Maybe in 20 man but probably a dps loss in a 10 man .

    Thinking of maybe switching out Leg.Patron's rage for Leg. Searing Vitality. Would probably boost dps without loosing anything really .

    ur right, legendary SV did boost it (the only thing i don't like is having to refresh SV the entire time) and i changed my spec

    with 2k hit no dungeon gear and no runes

    legendaries: searing viatilty.......shared vigor........flaring power........piercing beam......flamebolti


    for masteries the two main ones to get are combat alacrity for instant lava field and lvl 63 and at lvl 65 etheral blast


    new macros:

    #show lava field
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Piercing Beam
    target @self
    cast @gtae lava field
    targetlasttarget


    #show granite salvo
    suppressmacrofailures
    cast Flame Bolt
    cast granite salvo


    same rotation as before.......the highest i got was ~120k but after three minute parsing was around 97k-111k

    From my testing ages ago, I could get about 110k.
    Searing Vitality seemed a waste of a cooldown despite it's 8%.
    Illuminate was still ok even if it was just you hitting the thing. It's effectively a big hitter that takes 1 minute to fire and costs 2 GCDs

    But I won't look into Archon again until something's changed. Pyro is our support now. Be good if we could get Legendary FireStorm in Archon. That would make a huge difference in it becoming a support.

    Fire storm should give your raid equal or more dps than Flaring Power provided you have some runeshapers, elepyros, or nightblades.

    I was able to get ~250k over 5 mins easily with 58 archon/18 pyro in average gear and pretty poor play (not watching IC and flamebolt charges well). 325k in good gear with good play should be possible, at which point it would be worth it to take a pyrochon.

    but if you are 58 then you dont have flaring power

    and if you are playing archon NOT for support... well if you are pulling the dps sure it's fine, just not what people expected

    given those numbers, would love for you to try out 61 archon builds and post, can't imagine those 3 points make such a huge dps difference

    Just 1 point in pyro can get you fire storm, that anywhere between 50-100k, but you ofc loose flaring.

    Thinking by the way things look we will be using 2 Archon builds . A full 61 for 20 man raids where having flaring might just be worth it , and a Pyrochon for 10 mans . Will be a toss up for a lot of raids . You will still sometimes find yourself out dpsing some dps in a pug group either way ! LOL .
