    Default ST/AOE Specs

    What are people running nowadays?
    I used to run the Zoomancer for ST but now I prefer Pyro/Ele.

    AOE i run SC/ELE.


    What do you guys think the highest DPS AOE and ST builds are?

    I havent' made the switch to pyro/ele yet although I hear its really good! mainly because I'm not really a fan of pyro heh ^^
    but basically been using two dps specs in my roles lately-
    SC/ELE for AOE fights 34/32 and NECRO/DOM/LOCK 31/28/07 which is a derivative of the basic necrodom that should do more dmg, but relies on other necros to keep up deathly calling. I'm not sure necro/dom is the most viable single target spec since 1.4 changes to spotters orders but i still do well with it. I've heard good things about 33/33 necrolock and pyro/ele since the patch, its neat there are so many dps options now.

    I might be making the switch back to Necro/lock (Lich Form) for ST.

    As you see on the DPS Check Parse(Plutonus) it owns. The sad part is, I believe Circ is wearing P8 PVP gear and Crystal.

    ugh pvp gear, the one change I absolutely hate this patch is how much itemization for raiding has been messed up :P
    but yea I hear necrolock does really well for single target

    Don't think he had hit rank 8 at that time, he was rank 7 I believe. He's definitely using the pvp gear though, and goes necro whatever for ST. I don't know too much about mages.

    I don't have much necrolock experience so I was hoping some of you that do might be able to answer this:
    I've messed around some with a 33/33 necrolock build and rotation on bluedots guide, but keeping the dots up I haven't been able to get nearly the same numbers as some of the other builds out there on training dummies (namely zoomancer specs) self buffed (no potions/powerstones), I'm only sustaining maybe 1k+ dps. Is this typical? Is the strength of the build how much it scales in raid with support buffs or how much it is able to proc the new spotters order, or am I doing something wrong?

    Try these instead of the 33/33, defile I think will be more viable when you get your Lock Crystal. you might re-read blue dots seeing how you're using a rotation from there and not using the build that goes with it.
