    As with my other guide, I wrote this a while ago and figured I may as well share it now since competitive raiding has been destroyed.

    Legendary Flaring Power
    Legendary Patron's Rage

    Buffs
    Archon's Bulwark

    (Arguably you should get up the raid buffs before Piercing, Galvanic, and Illulminate... but this is just easier to write for now)

    Pillaging Stone is good to use when you have 20 stacks of Illuminated Earth.

    Breakdown
    I used Ashen and Crumbling but no Flaring or Lava Field. I also failed to have Ethereal Blast in my macro when I did this parse.

    Looks like somebody just added more abilities to their 58 chon macro

    How far behind were pyro variants?

    Also is waning power worth it?

    I think methodical (or calculated) would be better than sparking because that is a sad contribution

    I think of the few Pyro variants I tried, they were maybe 5-10% down on it.

    To be honest I did this months ago and can't really remember.

    And yes I keep my macros full of fluff so that when I switch builds I don't have to change much

    I haven't really min maxxed this very much as there's just no point. Was just getting it out there as a base so people could work from it.

    Probably Metho if Patron's Rage is actually worth it and there are a couple instants used.

    #show Volcanic Bomb
    Suppressmacrofailures
    Cast Ethereal Blast
    Cast Volcanic Bomb
    Cast Earthen Barrage
    Cast Spark Shower
    Cast Surging Flare
    Cast Granite Salvo
    use Enigma Seal of Intellect

    No pyro also means the spec is easier to play. So that's a good ting right, Trion? right?!

    I guess I need to revisit this, but I parsed chon like a mad man(out of boredom) for about two days. I got 15 ele 0 dom to around 150k dps, almost all greens mage alt. Also, every time I tried illuminate legendary, my pillaging wasn't hitting that hard. The numbers don't lie, and after lots of parsing, 15 ele did more. I'd love to get with you though as I'm sure I was doing something wrong!

    What dummy were you parsing on? And what debuffs were you using do you remember? i.e. crumbling, ashen, lava flaring.

    You probably have done more parsing than me, but if your pillaging stone isn't doing much damage, you're probably doing that wrong. Remember it takes a LONG time to get to 20 stacks if you're the only one hitting it as an archon. You can see the damage mine did.

    I was parsing in my main's parsing dimension on a 67 dummy. I did the exact same opener that I do in a raid for easy repeatability on all my testing. I just logged now, I'll get ss's of my stats, and I'll show my breakdown.
    My opener is always: ashen defense, crumbling resistance, illuminate, volcanic, earthen, spark, surging, granite.
    Obviously I don't parse with flaring/lava. Give me a few minutes and i'll get a parse up

    EDIT: Welp, server crashed when I was parsing lol to be continued

    I only used pillaging with 20 stacks, and it NEVER hit very hard. I will definitely try it again though. I'm think that your spec may buff it more than mine? Not sure

    EDIT: Sorry, was in a rush. To clarify, I didn't use pillaging here of course. Just replying to your comment on the illuminate legendary, and that I did in fact only use it with 20 stacks, and it was still a loss for me in this spec.

    My gear is a lot better, so yeah I think your spec should be a ton better than this one I posted.

    From what I can tell, the searing vitality is definitely a gain, but its a pain to manage an 8 second dot in an otherwise boring spec. Lightning strike is a gain, if only for the chunk of charge it gives. I went flaring, searing, crystalline, elemental, and neural for legendaries
