    I just did some parses using the 11 lock and the 13 ele. It seems the GCD change to possession affected more the lock speck, specially if using the revenant. It also decreased the dps of the ele spec using revenant by 1-1.5k. The dps loss while using the zealot is almost minimal. Depending on the spec you need to prioritize possession skills over standard skills or vice versa.
    Both specs ost ranged dps, but the melee pet dps loss wasn't that abysmal.

    Default Macro Change Then?

    With the GCD change does this mean that the macros you've got listed need to change now? Or, are they still fine they way that they are?

    What do you mean Range Possession???

    I too would like to know how you get some of these abilities showing up in the macros that are not in any of the three soul trees.

    Default What do you think about this subsouls for necro?

    souls

    I use plague bolt, never use ignite, so, chloromancer buff I have constantly during combat. And 10 points in elementalist increase my pet's dps.

    bess parse your dps with that and with switching out ele for SC
    can get 10% SP and 5% crit from SC, I think you will see a dps boost even with the pet damage loss
    that boost will be pronounced the better your gear

    I strongly prefer the chloro as you have used it, it also scales better with gear

    I've been playing this spec for a few weeks, and it fully fits my playstyle. I don't like being so reliant on my pets, so this spec worked for me. When I bought the Harb soul recently, I noticed a 5k increase in ST damage over stormcaller.

    Maybe a noob question, but why do you cast Etheral Blast before Etheral flux ?
    Don't you need to put Etheral flux on the monster before casting the Blast ?
    (just reach 65 and i check again this guide to update my macro)

    Thanks

    Ethereal flux is OGCD (off the global cooldown), which means that it'll be cast even when your abilities are spinning. Youre correct that flux needs to be on a target before you can cast blast, so the first time you click the macro blast won't fine but keep clicking it and flux will be applied letting you use blast.
