    Default How is mage now?

    Hi there --


    I'm thinking about coming back to this game. I saw some of my old aky and mael kill videos and almost cried (okay, maybe I didn't cry but it was emotional). So I'm wondering... what's best specs right now? Chloro's still kick the other healing classes butts? What's the best DPS spec? Still need archon in every raid?


    Give me the deets! Thanks :3

    I honestly advice you not to come back, because if you do, you will cry again, of how the game you used to know is long gone , just keep your good memories of Rift alive and dont let the current state ruin it :3

    Rant over, there are some pretty op FoTM specs for mage which are wrekking in PvP and PvE but are getting nerfs soon(TM)

    Bishoujo: Don't come back? That's rough. Some Lucidium people were gonna come back and do some 10 man stuff.

    Mage blows unless you want to be a pet caster with the destruction of radiate death. There is no longer any reason to do anything but spam a couple of elementalist buttons. Archon is destroyed but no one raids now anyway because there is nothing to raid.

    Ummm Warlock is still top end ST DPS? Most callings only have one or two really viable DPS souls (warrior only has Riftblade!).

    Archon still > BM because Legendary Flaring >>> Command to Attack and evens out the 100k difference in DPS.

    Nope, it was bumped up to the point of being viable at one point in 4.0, but has not been top dps since Storm Legion.

    It's already in the process of being killed again.

    top end
    If you guys aren't competitive with Warlock in ST... you're playing it very very wrong.

    i can do about 300k dps with my Warlock... granted my CP is a bit low.. however i just think the destruction of radiate death is WRONG!... they did the same thing to grave rot! for the Necro.. and the reaver is not a good viable dps for warrior???

    So Warlock can do 400-450k ST dps in most fights?

    Yes, it can. If you're not, I highly suggest reading a guide and practicing.

    If by viable you mean 25% below top parsing specs, then sure!

    Ok, show me a pure ST 450k Warlock parse, I'd love to see once since I hate Ele.

    I already know how to play Warlock, as I've played it since Vanilla, but I have yet to see anyone push out more than low 300s for DPS, so please do enlighten me, I'd love to drop the one button Ele cancer.
