This is Pyro/Elemental/Archon
I was wondering what you think about this build? I'm currently level 36 and so far have been doing amazing damage. It focuses heavily on fire damage exclusively. Keep in mind as well, that I always build up/maintain 5 stacks of Pillage Stone before I start the damage sequence. Fire Armor is the armor of choice as well.
-Cinder Burst + send elemental in
-Leeching Flame (Searing vitality if on cooldown)
-Fireball (should be at 100 charge)
-Inferno/Flame bolt (if it procs from Fireball)/Searing vitality (or Leeching flames)
-Flame Bolt (then repeat from when first flame bolt mention)
With this rotation You'll be keeping a steady 15% damage from Ground power, 5% from Soul Fire talent, 5% from Fire Armor, 10% damage from flame bolt, and 7% from Exposure yielding a total of 42% damage increase of fire, and 62% damage increase when internalize charge is up. For extra burst damage when needed, use heatwave.
-Flame Bolt (send pet in)
-Fire Storm *use till 90 Charge
Specific Talents choices
I have yet to really have any mana issues since I got Leeching flames, thus not taking improved Smoldering Power. Along with my Crit being around 15% with Exhilaration helps as well.
With the Burning bright Talent, You currently have a 2.04% fire damage increase with my selected talents. If you decided to go all points in pyro it would be a total of 3.06%. I figure Greater Elemental Affinity in the Elemental Summoner soul is worth more than 1.02% damage increase. You also miss out on Ignite's 30% crit to Pet Abilities.
As far as survival goes, I use Ice Shield when i expect to take a huge amount of damage that's unavoidable and the 10% damage reduction from Elemental Link is a not only a dps increase due to buffing pet damage, but survival increase. Not to mention, you have a tank pet that can hold aggro pretty well.
Do you think I should have picked a different Soul? If so what soul? Any Talents you'd use differently? Maybe instead of 5/5 Weathered, you get 4/5 Weathered and take Sacrifice?
