[MAGE] Looking for a good offspec for PVP while leveling.Follow

I'm leveling as the typical Necro/Lock/Chloro, I'm level 17 right now and leveling fast.
I haven't tried PVP in Rift yet and I wanna try it out.
I'd like to do some 10-19 bracket pvp and 20-29 bracket and so on...
I had someone suggest pyro or lock for it but I was looking for a specific build for some casual off spec PVP while I level.

Thanks for the input!

I was thinking about making my own build, I'm just not sure where to place the pyro points or what off-souls would be ideal.

I wouldn't worry too much about "ideal" at low levels

Necro/lock is pretty good for leveling, though I don't recommend it for low level pvp as it isn't really that bursty. Pyro is really better for that (or SC at higher levels when you start getting some of the really tasty AoE)

As for where to put points, you really need two things for pyro: damage and mana.

For pvp you'll probably also want to pick up Burning Bonds and its various upgrades as an instant root that doesn't break on damage is as good as it sounds like it is

EDIT: This is at least sort of my current pyro build at 33 (from memory so may not be 100% accurate): http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=0zzIR.V0xo.xbuezusdzo

I like that build, but what's up with the 0 chloro? Wouldn't another soul like dom or something work?

Well here's the thing, with 0 points in Dominator your Transmogrify spell has a 2.5 sec cast time and a big cooldown. That's just a little too unwieldy for pvp. I suppose that third soul could be Ele but at my level the Lesser elemental pets stop gaining ranks and therefore levels, so they just get left behind when it comes to fighting things or people that are my level or above.

I chose 0-pt Chloro for the third soul here because at 0 points I get Radiant Spores which can be some minor healing for the rest of my team in pvp, I decided that was better than an incredibly minor dps increase from a 0-pt pet or a nearly-worthless CC spell

Just go for a pure Dominator build. CC everyone, prevent healing, and laugh while your opponents run helplessly around in circles.
