    Questions:

    1. Why Velidreth?

    Kragh offers the highest damage gain in groups where full target penetration is not achieved, because the 1 piece on it is the strongest one-piece for a stam user to have and offers a 2.97% DPS increase on a non fully penetrated target. Velidreth however works best if full penetration is achieved. In addition its proc hits certain enemies (Manticora is an example) multiple times. My raid group will be running an optimized buff system so I am running Velidreth…if there are no penetration cap then Kragh is bets in slot for most fights.

    2. Why TFS and NMG?

    Penetration is the best damage buffing stat to use when building a character. In a non optimized raid those two sets will perform best. Should your group already run NMG your options open up quite a bit, but are all reliant on what gear is available to you. Vicious Ophidian, Hundings Rage and Sunderflame are all viable options, the trick is to be aware of how to optimize and not go over the penetration cap. Below is a list of all the possible debuffs a group can have up, keep in mind that during a trial you most likely will not have a 100% uptime on every single of these, so try to pen cap yourself with that expectation.

    Nightmother’s Gaze – 2580

    Alkosh – 3010

    Sunderflame – 3440

    Major Fracture – 5280

    Minor Fracture – 1320

    Crusher Enchant – 1622

    Infused Crusher Enchant – 2108

    3. Why Warrior Mundus?

    Warrior seems to be coming out on top for most stam builds in this DLC. By slotting Dawnbreaker on the front bar we are getting around 537 weapon damage from that Mundus, which is quite a large chunk of our dps. Our crit is too high to take advantage of the Thief stone and too low to make Shadow Mundus be better than Warrior. Lover is a choice to run, but the DPS gain from warrior is almost exactly the same and if you have buff sets in a raid Lover quickly loses its power.

    4. Why double dagger?

    Proc rate for the Axe passive is too low to warrant using it, and daggers scale better with raid buffs.

    5. Why Nirn Bow?

    Since we are shooting for a pen capped scenario we have infused/nirn and precise to choose from. Precise is nice but Nirn is a lot better. Nirn not only increases the base of your Hail damage, it also buffs your weapon by 200 wep damage which is huge for all your skills. Running Nirn allows your hail to start ticking and go through the lower part of its damage buffed, once you bar swap, the Infused trait off the main hand takes over and gives your Hail a higher ceiling to reach.

    6. Why Bull Netch? 

    It does wonders for sustain and we have the bar space.

    Some interesting ideas. Subterranean Assault is quite potent in AoE.

    I am curious as to why infused weapon with poison enchant is favoured though, will this depend on how many points you would allocate into penetration?

    Regarding the VO weapons – i happen to have 2 sharpened daggers as well as an infused mace. Should i go with the mace / dagger combo, or should i just stick with 2 daggers?

    cheers and great post! :)

    Tbh mace is never a viable option. Its usually axe or dagger, however since those are the items you have Id go for daggers and keep grinding for the axe.

    Hey Nos, i’m really curious about the infused main hand, and mael bow, poison enchant interactions. Do you know who has done the math and compared with sharp main hand, on targets that aren’t fully penetrated by group?

    Sharpened being on main or off hand doesnt play a role, since you automatically get the pen from it, however infused is best on main hand, because it allows you to get increased damage and uptime on the psn enchant and it also for some reason boosts the offhand weapon’s enchant.

    Right, i meant 2x sharp vs Infused-sharp agaisnt a target that isn’t overpend, where you get the full benefit from the second sharp weapon.

    If you dont over penetrate with 2 sharp weapons then its definitely the way to go…the issue is that in the current patch in endgame even withlut alkosh and nightmothers you are over pen if you use two sharp weapons.
