    Default Are Mages Top DPS yet again?

    I am in my 2nd month of withdrawal from Rift since my Ele/Pyro was nerfed from about 500K to 350K DPS, and went from top of the chart to somewhere down in the middle. Have we come back yet?

    Ele/pyro was a dumb and boring spec.

    If you stopped playing because you had a single spec nerfed... Why did you play rift at all? The whole idea is supposed to be having lotsa stuff to play at any given point in time. There isn't supposed to be any class with just 1 soul that does everything. It's happened, sure; but they were never supposed to exist in the first place. That detracts from the main focus that brought most people TO Rift.

    Stormcaller, 1mil+ on 8 targets
    Necro 500k+ on 5 adds, 300k+ ST even in it's buggy as **** state. (if yer willing to respec constantly)
    Pyro and Harb 500k+ ST
    Warlock 400k+ ST, 550k+ Dual Targets
    Ele 350K+
    Hell, even Dom can be made to break 250k ST; though I haven't tested with recent changes to IC.

    And mind you, my mage still has some green gear, not a single rare or better essence, no consumables, and no synergy crystal. Better geared players could do more than this.

    I would love to get some info on how you do this with green gear? I'm a returning player from many years break, so my rotations and such and all knowledge are ****. currently I cant get necromancer or warlock to go over 130k dps on one of the green nature elites north from Alittu unless i use every cooldown I got, while harb can pull off 250+k without using EA, with it something closer to 500k (short fights yes, but if I try to test necro on the dummy outside alittu, my parse is only like 67% on one target since the Revenant aoes on the close 3-4 dummys, and even then i can barely pass 200k). my gear is most likely utter garbage since I havent played much, around 35k sp, 2.3k cp, 20k int, 2.1k hit aand something like 17k sc

    edit: did not mean i have a revenant in my harb spec :D i mean i prefer to try most of the parsing at those elites due to the splashing to the close-by dummies, and i dont know if there is some other place i could find a lvl 70/72 dummy where it would actually be far enough from other dummys
