    really strange how weak pillaging is in my spec. It hit for less than literally everything else. I guess piercing beam and raw dps gain from harb buffs pillaging MUCH more.

    UPDATE: Top spec (imo) is 61chon 15ele 0dom. Legendaries are Flaring, illuminate, crystalline, elemental forces, and neural prod. Illuminate IS a huge gain in a raid, but try to use pillaging with earth buff(from archon's bulwark) and only 20 stacks. Not sure why it doesn't parse that great on a dummy. Also, neural prod proc's Archon's Bulwark - Air, which is what I was missing on my inconsistent lightning strike parses. So I made a kalert for Archon's Bulwark - Air, and use a lightning strike when its up. You can squeeze two off sometimes, but it seems crystalline and neural prod both eat a stack. I have a feeling this will be the top spec in 4.1 as well, unless more changes come. I'm no guide writer, so let us know what you think archy. Also seems like Arcane Finesse(64 mastery) might be best.

    Points in ele are 5 biting cold, 5 elemental link, and 5 tempest.

    How does it fare on the PTS though?
    Legendary Elemental Forces is getting the nerf sledgehammer to the face.

    This was going to be my question and why I've steered away from Ele.
    Ele forces is cut 40% on the PTS. But we're still a month away from balance changes anyway....

    At the same time, we are a month away from content that would give Archon a reason to exist in SFP.

    I've tested the archon today (PTS). My best results were with 61 Archon/15 Pyro/0 Arbinger.

    Legendary Flaring Power
    Legendary Patron's Rage (I think in raid environments I'll use Legendary Patron's Rage mainly
    for intensive movement phases)
    Legendary Illuminate
    Legendary Internalize Charge (With the last PTS update now has a 20 second cooldown and no longer costs charge. Now affects cast time spells for a bonus of 100% increased damage)
    Legendary Galvanic Strike

    The playing style is similar to the 58 Archon Guide by Kaly.

    I prefer 5/5 ignation over Improved Bolt because you have 1.5 sec Fireballs with Lingering Dust and are exactly within the global cooldown. Possibly in raid environments you don't cast much Fireball's because you can use more Pillaging Stones with 20 Stacks from Legendary Illuminate, i think than 3/3 Improved Bold is the better choice. Possibly is also a DPS gain to put 1-2 Points in Arbiter for 2-4 % more Int.

    Strangely I can't use PowerDrain in this spec something (Legendary Internalize Charge?) is always blocking it.

    Ahhh welcome back?? Please?

    Was wondering how you got so much better DPS. Just now realised there were PTS changes that went through without notes. Changes to both Pyro and Archon's Bulwark will give you much better figures. Looks like I'll have to go retest!

    How much dps do you guys generally pull in a raid setting with archon? I'm using the 61 archon/15pyro/0 arb varient and trying to see if its worth trying other 61 builds for better dps.

    and the auras are getting annoying now , they are still 5m but the timers are bugged. Both Gadget and KA couldn't track either.

    Yeah, the aura bug is annoying as hell, especially for those of us who forgo legendary Patron's Rage.
