    I’m debating on redownloading the game and playing at least casually. How’s Valkyn Skoria in terms of Sorcerer DPS now? Still bad or is it viable? I know Illambris is the best but I was wondering because I have many, many perfect pieces of Skoria but I left before Illambris existed.

    While I’m at it what traits should my weapons have now? I looked at the trait changes and Infused looks slightly better than it was before…I’m going to assume Divines is still king.

    With the buff to mundus stones that matter, divines isn’t going anywhere. You’re correct in assuming it’s still the king of pve armor traits. I’ve seen videos of people using Skoria on stamsorcs in vMA. Extra health is always good and the burst damage is nice. Though I haven’t tried it in vMA myself, on my stamsorc it procs quite often. In fact, I’d say it procs more often than Illambris. They both have pros and cons. Enemies sometimes walk out of Illambris. Sometimes Skoria doesn’t always lock on the enemy you want to kill first when dancing around like a monkey. Infernal Guardian is decent. It’s usually enough to kill low health adds without doing anything else or even bothering to look. It also seems to proc more than Illambris if shield is up every 6 seconds. Nirn seems to be best back bar staff. Infused front. This pertains to group play for the most part. Solo, sharpened could still be your friend and as of right now during clockwork city pts testing sharpened is taking the lead once again.

    Usually I tend to focus on group play scenarios (mainly a PvE player, if I decided to play again I will ease myself back into PvE).

    I mostly speak from the perspective of a magicka Sorcerer (Dunmer specifically). Good to know that Skoria is nice in solo content though as I still need to get myself a vMA staff (months of trying to get the stupid thing and I never managed to do it).

    It works good,but not good enough.I tested It and got almost similar result as Ilambris shock part,if U want to use blockade of fire,and wave FP,Ilambris will beats Valkyn a lot.Or with bonus HP,Valkyn is an optional set for Heavy attack build
