    How much damage are you doing (single target)? What content are you struggling with?

    Have you looked at existing build threads in the theorycrafting sub-forum?

    Keep in mind you can just use potion to provide Major Prophecy and Sorcery buff. Lightning staff heavy attack will be much more sustainable in AoE than Pulsar (most large mobs and bosses are immune to the Minor Mangle debuff anyway).

    How do you use your skills, what is your rotation?

    Elemental Blockade is very strong, as is Vampire Bane. Shooting Star is another option for ultimate, if you have Mage’s Guild level 10.

    Your spell damage is very low. Are you using gold c160 weapons?
