Mystic Featured Image

This role is intended to provide the support buffs that stack with Archons’ buffs in addition to providing as much damage as possible to the enemy in the form of a Molten Wave .- Fury Blast rotation that is familiar.  This is not a raid wide support caster who can function alone and without a support, so is actually a damage dealer. Because of the additional support abilities offered however it may be considered support.

The spirits of the wilds are no stranger to a Primalist but a Mystic shares a special bond with them. allowing them to share there gifts with allies. The Primalist combines this synergy with eh single target ranged damage capable of unleashing a flurry of rock and lava on their enemies. Combining these two brings support to there raid and unleashes hell on their enemies.

The Soul Build Pros and Cons of This Build

Click to Expand Image
Mystic 14 – Primal Lord 16 – Vulcanist 9 at Magelo
Each Point Increases damage done by 2%

 Mystic  is considered the primary soul of this even build though it does not have the highest amount of points in it. This is because its primary function, in addition to damage, is to provide additional support buffs for the raid. We are sacrificing top damage for this and there is only one of these builds worth running in a raid at a time. 

Pros and Cons of an Mystic-Vulcanist

  • Additional support to supplement Archon
  • Has very good damage for a build featuring support abilities
  • Has a rotation that should be familiar to any Primalist Damage Dealer
  • This is not a fully functioning support role

  • Does not provide all of the necessary buffs a Mystic or other support role may
