Hi there, i'm looking for some critique on my solo leveling/questing build. i also use this occasionally for PvP when i really feel like hitting someone in the face, and it works alright, but i usually heal for war fronts.
level 43, currently:
The basics of this build are really pretty simple: Tor smash! DoT up your target with sanction heretic and vex, and slow with impede so you have time to get everything off while they're incoming. also a good time to throw in a glacial shield or life's vengeance/banish.
the main attack macro looks like this: glacial shield, (reactives: glory of the chosen, jolt, fated blow), massive blow, lightning hammer, crushing blow.
with this build you just DoT the **** out of something and then crit like crazy. if you need to burst just use rage of the north and things drop. so far mana is not a problem, ever, and healing comes from glory of the chosen and vex, splash with healing breath if needed.
My biggest problems are these: I do have issues dealing with multiple mobs at once... not really serious problems, it's just that i'm only damaging one at a time usually, if i want to be effective. If i can make them drop fast enough (and i usually can if they don't out level me by too much) then i can take down a handful. The other problem would be in a group that's half-hazard i can't really hold the aggro on multiple targets at once, which usually isn't an issue because this is for soloing or DPS'ing and CERTAINLY is not a tank :P
My best at level 43 was killing the level 48 giants in stillmoor solo, but with all the missing it took a long time and there was a lot of close spots/relying on healing breath. grouped with a 41 chloro and we took them easily enough, even with the occasional level 48 'bat' adds, but it still took FOREVER (but hey, we're taking things way over our level, all the resists and misses... meh)
so where do you think i could do better? questions/comments? anyone feel free to use this build as it is relatively effective for what it does.
