    Default Necro/Warlock vs Elem/Pyro

    Here are two mage builds I designed, the Necro/warlock i played a bit in Beta 6 and it seemed good up to level 15 anyways. I wanted to explore the other side of elemental pyro combo. Take a look and feed back what you guys think which would be stronger, more dps, etc.

    Elemental/Pyro:

    I like your builds! Two different play styles for certain.

    For the necro build though, I think you allocated points in Lock that just simply arent needed or are a total waste. For instance, 1 pt in Dark Fury and Improved Warlock armor are a total waste. I assume you put them in there to reach the improved warlock armor root, which is much more of a waste when those points could have been dropped into the necro branches to reach your 44 Root. In essence, the 44 necro can be a devastating killer especially if someone is healing them! 5 Stacks of an extremely large short time frame DoT on top of all of your other incoming damage makes it largely difficult to mitigate the damage and heals only continue to refresh and hurt the person!

    Just my two cents!

    OK in Beta 6 I rolled both of the combination's you have listed, I found that the Pyro/Ele combination did in fact do more damage. As far as DoT's go, your better bet out of the two you listed will be Necro/Lock.


    This is my personal opinion.

    Referring to your Pyro build, you`re willing to sacrifice about 23% additional fire damage?

    ok modified the pyro/ele slightly by one point adjustment.

    For the Necro/Warlock I was concidering taking two point out of warlock and put them into chlo for a little more healing and extra int.

    yea, burning bright is a big fire damage increase, well, depending on how many points you put in Pyro
