    Default Necro vs Cabby?

    Hiya, returning player here, been away from Rift for quite some time and coming back I am blown away by all the soul changes, so my question is I have 2 50 toons, a mage and a cleric.

    Basically the only 2 main souls I enjoy are Necro and Cabby, just wondering with all the changes which one is worth sticking it out with til 60?

    Was kinda hoping Lock would get some love but looks like their dots are still meh. I think my Cabby build has as many dots with about the same dmg, very dissapointed that points in the lock soul don't contribute more towards dot dmg, or do the tool tips lie?

    I play all four callings and think all four are great at PvP. Just play whichever!

    With the soul changes came "gifts" for each soul. The gifts increases certain stats for each point spent in that soul. The mage souls have pretty specific +damage gifts, with warlock being the only one oriented to +dot damage. To see what gifts a soul offers, hover over the soul's icon.

    I saw that, but reading the dmg on my tool tip, my dots for my Cabby are equal to or sometimes greater than my Lock and they're both 50s with roughly equal gear/stats.

    What used to be good on my old Lock build was how powerful Soul Purge was with a full Lock, now Soul Purge isn't what it used to be I see. Actually it's more powerful on my full Necro build, which makes sense, but that leaves Lock with little for heals.

    I'm still amazed Trion hasn't turned Life Leech into an instant spell. My Cabby has 2 instant dots in his build that return health (Vex/ Siphon Vitality), lol, but good old Life Leech still has it's cast time. Back in beta we tried and tried to get them to make it an instant dot, but to no use.

    It's pretty normal dot dmg and the health return is weak for having a 1.5 sec cast time, if they won't make it an instant cast, at least boost the dmg/health return. Lock needs to stay mobile and be able to kite while his dots tick, NOT stand and cast.
