    At 35 dps ladder seems to be
    Storm / ele
    Pyro / ele
    Lock / necro

    Judging by the mage parse thread.

    Imo the dps we were seeing at 35 showed Pyro Ele to be on top. The stormcaller had significantly better gear than either of us and was pulling a mediocre amount higher than we had. I would have to consult the parses again though.

    How to make a mage DPS spec.
    15 ele
    16 archon
    35 pyro/storm/warlock. Doesn't really matter as long as you grabbed the 2 OP sub souls.

    How to play said build
    Build up - 5pillaging, 6 rock slide, and lingering dust.
    ST
    Debuff with crumbling resistance unless someone else is.
    pyro - stupid ground, flame bolt, Leeching flames, fireball spam till Cinder burst proc or flame bolt expires. Use Internalized Charge for ever burst and as much as you can.
    Stormcaller - raging storm, ice shear, arctic blast x4, Building storm, thunder bolt, ice shear, artic blast x4. repeat.
    Warlock- sac life : damage, life leech till it crits,Leeching flames, spam void bolt. Use power drain to dump charge.
    AE
    Pyro - stupid ground, burning ground, internalized charge, firestorm. repeat
    Stormcaller - lighting storm, arctic blast x4, building storm,lighting field, arctic blast x4. repeat
    Warlock - dark touch, Nedra's Grasp, power drain, radiate death, devouring shadows x2 power drain, repeat.

    Yep, its that simple. Its only the encounters that make play any more complicated.

    Only decent Ele or necro specs are 51 specs. w/o the max points into the pet and using their Bolt type spell as you primary nuke the pets do pathetic damage. Maybe is they fix Air pets AI you might get 200ish from it but still not as much as taking 16 archon will get you.

    Hah I put together this exact spec about 4 days ago with a slight modification putting an additional 3 in Ele simply because I ran out of places I liked to put points.

    Agreed!

    I don't play PVP, which is different I guess.
    In PVE, I have 2 builds, one for SOLO with a strong pet and CC (root+squirel) to level without trouble ;
    one for GROUPS (or more) with Pyro (+elem+archon) going that way : Soul Tree Calculator: Pyromancer (36) / Elemental Summoner (21) / Archon (9) :: Rift: Planes of Telara :: ZAM
    the tests I had with ACT in guild groups show a good DPS, I am not at all sure it is the "best" one did as I not play enough with it.
