    Default Archon Information Request

    Does anyone know the current scale of the archon buffs? Is information out as far as up to Lvl 50? If not, anyone have these up at 35?

    Burning Purpose 10% faster melee/casting as of lvl 32
    Arcane Aegis +20 life/death/ele resist as of lvl 26
    Vitality of Stone +20 str/dex/int/wis as of lvl 20
    Shared Vigor +6 end as of lvl 4
    Tempered Armor +158 armor as of lvl 10

    Also, Rock Slide and Power Drain do not provide any information as to how long the duration of the buff/debuff actually is; can anyone elaborate with current duration, and whether or not these increase with level?

    Thanks in advance!

    burning purpose is a relative modifier it stays the same

    the others increase with new ranks, but it has been more then once said in these mage forums, that it could be a scaling issue at endgame, if theres new gear, without new ranks

    rock slide is 5min and stacks 6 times, increases with new ranks, uses charge and you get the 6stacks with one full charge dump

    power drain uses charge too, as long as you have charge it's up, i did not measure it but it felt like 15-20s

    the durations of the buffs stays the same at all currently tested lvls (35)

    I'm also curious if Surging Flare and Volcanic Bomb affect the Archon or just his allies.

    Archon becomes a very powerful Soul at 27 points into it, and I predict it being everyone's secondary soul at end game PvE, as long as Aura's do not cancel each other, making it only good to bring 1 archon mage per raid.

    Before level 20, you will lose stats or break even when doing your self buff and the group buff version. After level 20 though, the self buffs start to buff yourself more and more than you lose from doing the group buff.

    By level 30 you are getting a pretty good boost from the self buffs with the aura's up as well.

    With 27 points into this soul you will be giving yourself 16% more damage and healing and 18% faster cast speeds on all spells. On top of that, you are giving your group really good buffs, increasing your own stats through the roof, and debuffing the damage of every mob making them die faster and deal less damage.

    Aura's last 5 seconds and cast be recast anytime you want.

    Most self buffs cast by debuffing any Mob last 5 mins, some last 60 minutes.

    Surging Flare must have the wrong information listed in the tooltip, because it looks like it debuffs your group. If it says allies, it also means the mage. Normally it says "Cannot be cast on the mage" or something when it won't work on you.

    These spells do pretty weak damage considering they are the level 38 and 44 versions of the spell you are seeing the tooltip for.
