    58 Archon Parse
    Spoiler!


    In regards to the Archon parses, the only buffs that the Archon parses had that other specs did not have was 5% damage (Volcanic Bomb), 5% crit (Earthen Barrage), and 225 SP (Granite Salvo). I did not use Flaring Power, Lava Field, or Crumbling Resistance.

    DAMAGE - GENERALIST
    38 Mystic Archer/37 Pyromancer/1 Harbinger
    38 MA is the go-to spec for most content. It has superb single target, incredible cleave, excellent self healing, and a good AoE option for 4+ mobs.

    SUPPORT - RAID

    61 Archon is an offense-oriented support that is a staple in raids.

    =============================================

    SUPPORT - RAID
    58 Archon/18 Mystic Archer/0 Pyromancer
    58 Archon forgoes Flaring Power in exchange for a considerable boost to personal DPS. Consider playing this if your group has a Beastmaster. Note that there can only be 1 person playing Archon in a raid because only 1 Archon can have auras up at a time.

    I got around to doing some parses at level 60 (full normal dungeon set, level 50 essences) and updated the ranking list. It changed quite a bit from when I first posted it so please check it again!

    I'll get a 58 Archon and a 38 MA guide up soon.

    Looking forward to the 58 Archon guide, thanks for all your work thus far.

    Why have Arbiter as your Archon support build 0-point soul? As opposed to Harb for Lightning Charge buff, which would seem a better dps option.

    Lightning Charge does virtually zero dps. The 3% damage reduction from Aqueous Blessing is more likely to make a difference in a raid setting than adding ~0.1% dps. The true best option is probably 0 MA for Arcane Shot, but I try to keep the guides from getting bloated so I don't cover the nuances of 0 point soul options.

    All guides are finished and up!

    I took 43 Pyro down since there's no niche for at the moment with 61 Pyro being just as strong single target. 61 SC is missing as well for the time being unless something mandates its usage over 38 MA.

    Nice guides, thank you for all the effort. The magelo link to the 58 chon spec shows 58 elementalist (but the image below it is fine).
