    Default Necro or Ele for solo leveling?

    Which of these two specs is best for solo leveling dungeons and doing rifts ?
    Also which is best at powerleveling other toons? Thanks
    P. S. Also which fairs well at pvp in all level brackets ?

    Are alternatives also possible? If so Mystic Archer seems to be the best choice for solo leveling, followed by Harbinger. I think tank pets don't keep well enough agro to play effectively, maybe one of the many prime players can tell about his experiences. With higher levels Harbinger/Chloro is the king of survival.

    It looks like up to 50 Mystic Archer is best best leveling spec. I hate even saying that since ChloroHarb is probably my favorite spec to play in game out of all the classes but it is the case. I think afterwards 51+ Harb may be the better spec, definitely 60+ it will be.

    But for now, get 2k planarite and get MA as quickly as you can. It will make leveling much easier.

    Bored to death nearly BiS with nothing to do in 2+ weeks aside from a couple days of raid rifts on Prime and wound up in this subforum.

    I was using Necro/Lock in open world content up until the late 30s since I didn't have MA or Harb yet. The Necro tank pet had 0 issue keeping aggro but its output was very poor compared to Harb and absolutely horrendous compared to MA.

    Played a Necro to 70 and loved it. First and only 70. Survivable. Can solo elites. Decent AoE ability. Tank pet holds agro and feign death is a lifesaver!!

    Played Pyro mage until 60, then ran into problems. Tank pet never holds agro. My DPS is too powerful. Can't imagine how tough 65-70 will be.

    How does Elementalist compare to Necro? If I enjoyed Necro up to 70, how likely am I to enjoy Elementalist? Does the tank pet survive?

    I've just made a hybrid Necro (other than the preset). I am putting 21 points into Mystic Archer, 41 into Necro, and 14 into Frostkeeper. The Skeleton Knight pet is for tanking. Mystic Archer is my damage, and Frostkeeper is for healing.

    I haven't gotten into anything where my pet is needed yet. Mystic Archer pretty much kills anything before my pet even gets in there. LOL!!!
