    So does a random sharpened lightning on back bar still trump precise maelstrom or can CP and bars be configured for precise maelstrom to out DPS the random sharpened?

    I have been told that putting anywhere from 10-49 points in spell erosion and only having 2 active abilities on back bar(liquid and wall) will help precise maelstrom backbar out perform. Can anyone actually confirm or give some hard numbers by chance?

    I spent 3 hours testing precise maelstrom vs. sharpened random with fire enchant yesterday, and probably 60k altering CP, but still can’t tell since we have limited resources on Xbox.

    Thanks in advance!

    It says “with shield”… What’s that? You can’t use a shield with a staff right?

    It isn’t. Current magsorc meta is pretty much pet heavy attack build, some people also use netches touch without pet but it’s weaker. Any mines based build is mediocre cause mines don’t work properly and it’s “intended”

    Feels really bad when you have to unslot pet, as for the last boss of vAA …

    Look for Batters or  Em Dee on youtube, or search for 40K magsorc.

    You don’t have to unslot it, you just replace it with the flying pet. Less fun, but still good.

    Yolo explained it earlier in this thread. Only a certain amount of mines pops on bosses. We thought it was a bug but it’s intended says Zos. They’re really clunky

    It’s not “buggy as hell”, bosses are immune to mines when they take one, so only one will explode, it’s intended.

    Yolo probably has a real life and not enough time to make a new build video ^^

    And probably does not use the mines in single target boss fights…

    It is buggy, because not all bosses have the same issue with the mines.  See Yolo’s bug report (which he posted on page 35 of this thread) https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/354919/bug-report-lightning-heavy-attacks-daedric-tomb

    If it was intended all bosses would only trigger 1 mine.

    The fact that some bosses are hit by more than 1 mine is a bug and may be fixed one day.

    So nobody should rely on daedric mines when theorycrafting a build.

    @Aumann Hey, I was reading through this thread and my interest in your HA pet daedric mine build was sparked. I’m only CP 70 and only really intend to casually run dungeons, maybe do some vMA when I’m the right level. Considering that I’m not planning to focus heavily on trials, is this mine build viable? Could you give me a rundown of the set up? I’m getting so bored with the standard heavy pet set up in my solo escapades.

    Hi, sadly as mentioned mines are bad right now due to the way they function and bug out.

    Additionally i completely stopped playing ESO due to my music activities picking up again and my overal discontent with Zenimax’s way of handling things.

    You can always try a netch’s touch setup for a change of pace. But all in all any build will become very monotonous in this game.

    @Aumann thanks for the response. I’m pretty new and mostly a casual solo player so I haven’t really been exposed to any issues with ZOS yet but I hear they’re a mess. I guess my goal is to grind CP as efficiently as possible and be ready for vMA, which I think will be the endpoint I set for myself with this game.

    @Yolo-Wizard so, I went through your bug post and as I understand it, bosses with large hit boxes make the use of daedric tomb less than ideal. I really like the idea of a build that uses this and works, so I guess my question is, would this build work in vMA and for solo grinding? Maybe that’s a silly question, I’m sure you can tell I’m relatively new to the game. I’ve been using the standard heavy attack dot pet build for a while and it works but it seems like it lacks that burst punch when you need it.

    I’ve seen a lot of people running the old sorc meta with frags, force pulse and a pet. 5/5 bsw and necro.

    Hey,

    can someone share with me your parses on vtrials bosses? I curious what ST (other sorcs are pulling) should i get with heavy attack pet build or non pet build.

    I heard that magsorc has worst time than before (Homestead), but im struggle with reaching 40k ST in trial environment. I’m mostly using heavy attack build with pet ( 2 illambris, 5 necro, 3 master architect and infused vma lightning staff)  or setup without pet ( netch touch + skoria).
