    You can be anything you want....I suggest playing around and seeing what works.

    As for the first three souls you get (you can unlock them all at level 13, until then you only have 3), Id suggest necro/dom/warlock for easy soloing.

    After that its up to you, switch it up and see what works.

    For leveling up I liked Chloromancer/Warlock with my 3rd soul as Elementalist with 0 points in it. This gave me a tank pet, and a way to heal it through dps from the chloro/lock souls. Chloro/Lock work very well together.

    Leaving elementalist at 0 points allowed me to swap it out at will, based on need, without having to purchase another role. Roles beyond the first extra one can be expensive at low level and I preferred to use my first extra role for a pvp spec.

    My typical soul choice to swap with elementalist was usually Dominator for the 0 point CC skill or Archon for the 0 point buff/debuff nuke and DoT.

    The best thing Rift has going for it is the soul system. You really have to be a moron to screw it up and if you do, just respec...it's cheap. It also gives you the freedom to try all of the souls once you get into the early teens and run all of the easy quests to acquire them.

    Pretty much what everyone else has said. Try them all. Don't get locked down into the "what is the best spec". I made my 5th mage last night. Yeah, I never given them a fair shot. Well I can tell you that I am glad I stuck it out. I am only lvl 11, but she sure is fun to play. I am currently chloro/warlock/Nec(for pet). I think at 13 I will get elementalist soul first, and swap out Necro for it and see how that goes.

    Keep in mind that if you use a 0 point pet soul as your third sould, you will be getting rid of that soul at 30, as the pet will no longer level up with you. I would say Dom or Arch would be a good choice for a 3rd soul at 30.

    Anyway, this is just how I am doing it and it works for me. It may not be to your liking, so just mess around with it. You will find the soul combo you like best.

    Warlock Necro Archon is a good levelling soul build. Warlock temps are clutch in close fights, and the damage capabilities are so nice.
