    So I am leveling a mage for fun when I get a chance to play (can no longer raid due to RL requirements, getting maybe *maybe* an hour of gametime a night) and I picked:

    Pyro/Elementalist/Archon for my build.

    First thing I noticed was Pyro 4 points into the reduce cast times on fire spells put my spells down .3 seconds while 5 points into it, they were only down .2 seconds. Anyone else notice this or is the tooltip bugged/spell bugged?

    Second - Newb to mage - How would you mages spec using this setup for maximum ST DPS and what would you recommend for AoE DPS as another soul setup, and healing and buffer setup. Ive perused the forums and notice multiple different tweaked specs but what would you say is the most general git-r-done for that type of soulsets (even if you dont give the numbers).

    The pyro tooltip sounds strange I haven't noticed that myself.
    As for the dps builds they are just about all covered earlier on in this thread.

    Personally I enjoy 51 necro / 15 Warlock for ST and 33/33 Necro Warlock for AoE. Although a mix of Warlock / SC can put out a bit more dps on AoE fights I just don't find the spec at all enjoyable especially in a raid setting with others running a similar spec.

    33/33 necro/warlock can do pretty much everything in game. the ST dps is a bit underwhelming, but almost every spec is.

    Malthus is pretty spot on.

    So there's not really any new info in this forum and the thread seems pretty wishy-washy on top DPS spec. What's the best mage DPS spec?

    I'm downloading the free trial and looking for the optimal end-game spec choice from anybody that's not terrible at this game.

    Credible advice from an established EQ2 player would be great, but any non-scrub will do I reckon. Thanks in advance and sorry for the necropost, but this forum is dead.

    I think this is what my guildy plays, hits 1040 on the practice dummy where some mages can't break 700 in a raid. I'd definitely stick with sc/elem.
