    Default Pure Archon matchups

    I saw this mentioned in a different thread, but I figured I'd throw the discussion into it's own home.

    I am Archon/Chloro at the moment, wondering what people have squeezed out, what is actually going to help a pure archon spec, and whatever other thoughts and ideas you might have...

    pinski said warlock and hes probably right =)

    you probably want one (30+)chloro in your raid anyways and there really isnt much you can help with as 15 pt chloro
    the synergy with 15 warlock isnt great either imo but there really are not a lot of options maybe 5 ele 10 warlock

    i didnt really play archon a lot though

    Actually, warlock is a waste after actually looking into it more.

    Due to bugs with Archon atm, 5 or more Necro is a good combo, same with 8 or more Chloro. However, if you don't take into account the bugs and play it the way it's "intended", 8 Pyro, 7 Elemental Summoner is the way to go. 20% Cast speed to Fire based spells is actually better than Opp. Also, you get Ground of Strength and the Fire Armor for +15% fire damage. And if you want to, 11 Pyro, 4 Elemental Summoner isn't bad either so you can get Flicker.


    For an explanation on the bug, Necro's Plague Bolt currently procs a single debuff, put 5 points into Deadly Plague, and you now make it proc 2 debuffs. Combine with Burning Purpose, and well, you get extra free damage. Now, why Chloro? Stream of Reclamation does decent damage, and procs a debuff every 1s for the duration. So if you are fighting a fight where you have to turn away, cast it, turn away, continue to do damage until you can turn back and start nuking again.

    Though the bigger bug is with Power Drain. It's a debuff, it's not on the GCD, and has no recast. Soo yeah, free damage. Especially if you setup macros in a way to cast it before every ability.

    hehe you wish I know you meant ground of power though.

    It'd be kwl to see more archons out there though, I really have seen barely any so far tbh.

    Power, Strength, whatever. Not like the 1 even matters for PvE. Or does it. Well, I guess it does looking at it now.

    Cool, thanks Cal. I'm going to evaluate all of those options. Still not running raids yet so I have some time to fiddle with them.

    Which bugs are these? I'm just trying to understand what buffs stack with what on the Archon and that's bad enough without stuff failing to work as intended.
