    Default Best Mage leveling build?

    So i've looked around abit and gained the impression that some sort of Necro/Warlock mix is going to be the way forward in terms of leveling.

    However, i've seen nothing really final about the 'best' leveling build for a Mage so i'd like some input from people in the know

    Thanks for your help.

    I use Element/fire/archon and it's really fun.

    Best based on what criteria? Fastest Killing? Lowest downtime? Best survivability? Solo Questing? One-to-one focus? AoE focus? Kiting specialist? Group Instance levelling? Rift/Invasion focussed?.... etc etc etc

    I'm thinking about following this kind of path:

    1st Soul - Warlock, boost void bolt cast speed immediately
    Don't have to wait for pet to engage, just blast blast blast early

    2nd Soul - Necro
    3rd Soul - Chloro

    Put everything in Necro with the off points in Lock except for 3 points in Lock for faster VB
    At 20, spec out a second Role with all the points in Lock with Chloro 2nd, an AoE farming build.
    Then alternate leveling between questing with the Necro spec and rift farming with the Lock.

    If you're going heavy into Necro - I'd suggest putting the points into charge rather void bolt and possibly life leach - Soul purge is very good for leveling and it uses charge.

    I would go Chloro/Warlock/Dom.

    Primarily Chloro for self and group heals, Warlock high enough to get the Mana return ability (can't remember the name), and Dom just for the CC.

    1. Zealot
    2. Soul Purge

    Add the usual lock/necro stuff to that and you will get to 50 no problems.

    Oh, you swap out the void bolt buff once you've leveled a bit. It's just good for the first 10 levels or so because it casts so quickly.

    well from my experience ive had real good luck with storm/dom/pvp soul for my pvp grinding due to the high electric spells/debuffs and the instant cast dom gets neural prod wich is air damage so its incredibly boosted by storm. and for pve i just switch out to my second role and use pretty much straight pyro and AoE.its no so great for solo but with a gr and a good tank you can dish out massive dam to a large number of creatures at once.

    Does it really need elaborating? The fastest/most efficient/easiest leveling spec, or the 'best' one. I'm not sure why so many of you are being pedantic about this =/
