This build, as long as you are attacking, should be able to keep a level 70 alive even in Vostigar against 5 or more elites. For leveling, I recommend the Elementalist, Necromancer, or Leafblade preset.

61 Harb, 9 Chloro, 6 Arbiter
61 Harb, 9 Chloro, 6 Stormcaller

If you don't own Arbiter, you can use Stormcaller.

Legendaries:
Harbinger - Empyrean Ascension, Vengeful Shock, and Piercing Beam.
Chloromancer - Bloom
Arbiter - Galvanic Strike

Stormcaller - The only legendary available is Raging Storm but the build isn't really designed around using it, so 4/5 legendaries is fine.

Buffs:
Reaper's Blade -or- Reaper's Essence (Same buff, 1 replaces weapon with Scythe, 1 lets you use your wardrobe)
Eldritch Armor
Aqueous Blessing (if using Arbiter)

Spam:
#show Empyrean Ascension
suppressmacrofailures
cast Break Free
cast Fading Light
cast Empyrean Ascension
cast [notactive] Charged Blade
cast @self Arcane Manipulation
cast Vorpal Slash
cast @self Bloom
cast Vengeful Shock
cast Storm's Fury
cast Rending Slash
cast Glacial Spike
cast Conditioned Response
cast Introspection

Note: Glacial Spike is Arb, remove if you're playing SC. Legendary Bloom launches 5 Vile Spores randomly at enemies, both in and out of combat. They may hit the same target.

AoE:
#show Lucent Slash
suppressmacrofailures
cast [notactive] Charged Blade
cast Jolting Wave
cast Introspection
cast Lucent Slash
stopcasting


Note: Use to pull lots of things to you, keep people from using objectives in PvP or lazily tag up without targeting. Even against 5+ enemies, you want to use the spam to kill efficiently and heal.

Piercing/Galvanic
#show Piercing Beam
suppressmacrofailures
cast Break Free
cast Fading Light
cast Piercing Beam
cast Galvanic Strike


Keep these up for a DPS gain. In solo, not necessary to maintain.

Crown Control:
#show Glaring Fetters
suppressmacrofailures
cast Disabling Shock
cast Glaring Fetters


Stand alone abilities:
Storm Shroud - Very short stealth, good for dropping aggro, not good for sneaking past anything.
Essence of the Wind - Run speed boost
Phantom Blades - Increases your range from 3m to 30m for 15s
Blade Rush - Gap closer + Stun
Planar Retreat - 20m leap backwards + self cleanse of all movement impairment
Phase Step - Gap closer, your next 3 attacks will teleport you to your target. Good combo with Piercing/Glavanic which are natively 30m range.
Distracting Slash - Interrupt

And that's it! As long as you are fighting, you should be healing. If you need more heals, use Vampiric Essence on your weapon. You are blender incarnate, so not much will stand in your way. With half T1 raid gear, I was soloing forts in Vostigar ZEs (boss takes time, but you rarely die)

Go my steel angels!

Thanks, having created a new mage alt with the goal of necromancer, I'm finding survival a challenge when faced with more than one enemy, much more so than my rogue.
