    Default Best Pve MELTING necro/lock specc...Thoughs?!?!?!?

    Hey guys...

    Just wondering if this specc will have the most damage output.

    Empty the Crypts is (supposedly) terrible damage compared to alternatives.
    Talented Void Bolt > Plague Bolt, you can get Deathly Calling better ways.
    It's spelled "Riftdrawal", and yeah you have it.

    I already see two problems. One Plague Bolt is a waste of time in this spec, Grave Rot is better at slapping on DC. Next, Empty the crypts is laughably bad and you are better off using all charge on your best damage ability, soul-purge.Your PB points would be far better spent on Fresh Graves, especially since almost all of your Necro damage comes from the Zealot.

    Try this build.

    Hes a PvE AoE pet. Basically you use vengeful spirit to reduce Deathly Calling costs and use the reverent for your magic AoE on trash mobs. IMO there are better souls to be doing the AoE so I never use it.

    Opportunity affects a whole ONE spell in your DPS rotation, and a few utility/healing (which you won't be using because, well, your job is DPS). Opportunity is a second soul, especially for something like Pyro.
    No Lingering Pain? One point to keep a DoT up with your primary nuke?
    2% damage > 1% crit.
    Neddra's Torture isn't as good as it was, it's a raid buff.

    I havent had a chance to play the Necro tree much yet, but wouldn't Vengeful Spirit be a DPS upgrade? I don't know the pet skills off hand.

    4 points in Symbiote can be shuffled around. 4 floater points.

    @Above: Oh, I see. Those 3 could probably float too then.

    If we take both your and my advice, http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0z...Vx.xtctVzo0s.m , we get this. Looks pretty good. I have to ask tho, what did they do to NT to make it crap?

    Nothing, it just doesn't buff death damage by 15%. New tooltip reads 3% magic damage taken. For not having a 100% uptime, it's situationally useful. Spec looks fine.

    Alright, looks like we have a solid build here before us. Can't wait to use it.

    The thing that interests me about Neddra's Torture is that you can apparently apply it after the fact to a DoT that critted.

    What do you mean? I don't see anywhere a crit dot would let you insta-cast NT.

    Once you crit on a DoT, you then cast NT and the effect is applied retroactively.
