    Are you only coming on this thread to bitch IWM all the time?

    You’re in the same guild for Christ’s sake! Can you try to be more constructive so that EVERYONE who mains a MagBlade can learn and grow from each other?

    Or, you could perhaps start your own thread and enlighten us all of your omnipotence!

    Have a great day!

    Lol, it’s just banter man, it’s all good He’s a noob anyway, and a traitor.

    Im so lost….your negatrix DPS is 26k, your Positrix dps is 39k but your overall dps is 54k?

    Yeah, I don’t understand cmetrics on this fight. Overall boss dps was 41k or something like that, works nicely on the other fights though xD

    Welcome back, have you heard anythingregarding Scathing on PTS?

    Although I guess it’s better to wait until they bring out the full change to path before making a conclusion (please don’t screw this up ZoS)

    What is your rotation with that bar setup? 2 or 3 Will procs?

    I heard it was fixed, but as of next patch I’ll probably be going to another set so I really don’t care about it. It’s a shame they fix it now after two years, finally when magicka nb was viable, but what can you expect from wrobel the clown.

    3 will procs PERFECTLY weaved.

    Might I ask what set(s)? LoJ making a comeback?

    Lately i’ve been running julianos and wrath of the imperium with two random staffs. Recovery on neck, spell damage on rings. It’s not scathing mage but it’s alright.

    I am seeing best results with spinner (3 infused) + aether + precise weapons. Shadow or apprentice works really well (shadow seems best but diff is really low). Im not sure wich monster set i will be using yet…

    Done some testing on PTS?

    Looks like LoJ is making a comeback, but with the next patch notes I hope we see some good balance to other sets like MS and even give Nerien’eth some more love :)

    I would say be better to run 5p julianos or scathing mage + 5p warmaiden 1p monster set. grathdarr does not even add 500 dps to your meter on a boss fight at constant melee range, which primary need for solid dps build is trials which often times you are not at melee range. I would say you would do as much if not more damage not trying to rely on a monster set to do damage.

    i actually still use Force Pulse as my main spam. my bar setup is:

    Moondancer/Infal Flame Staff: Force Pulse, Crippling Grasp, Inner Light, Impale, Merciless Resolve, Ult: Soul Harvest/Meteor

    vMA Lightning Staff: Shield, Twisting Path, Rearming Trap/Clench/Scalding Rune, Elemental Blockade, Siphoning Attacks, Ult: Elemental Rage/Soul Harvest

     

    I heavy attack if my magicka is at 30% after placing all my aoes and dots, and I can pretty much proc 3 Assassin’s Wills if all my light attacks will register (but since I’m playing in Xbox and my internet sucks, they won’t register). We got orbs and shards thrown at us all the time, keeping drain up and basically I find it quite easy to sustain. I did like a 37k parse on a dummy selfbuff. I also like to move things around depending on situation.

    Currently for a MagBlade it’s:

    – 5x Julianos (including staves)

    – 5x IA (Jewelry and 2 armor pieces)

    – 1 shoulder Molag Kena

    See Alcast MagBlade for ideas.

    You never know what could happen next Monday on the weekly patch but that should work for a while

    EDIT: As of Monday (August 21st), IA has been corrected and the 5-piece bonus gives 833 crit% similar to Iceheart or Slimecraw 1-piece bonus. It’s still preferred though since if you ever need to do a Heavy Attack, they’ll hit harder and your debuff with Minor Vulnerability.

    3 IA jewels + 2 IA armor pieces

    1 slimecraw

    1 vMA lightning staff

    infused

     

    last night I tried with 5 IA 1 Kena 5 Julianos with Fire infused (shock enchant) and vMA lightining PRECISE and I didn’t get more than 35k dps on a target dummy :(  Lover mundus, 30pts on spell erosion and elemental drain always up

    btw I reach more dps with kena than slimecraw/icehart

     

    For higher dps, maybe is better to switch vMA lighting with double Julianos infused (spell dmg enchant)?

     

    whats about your setup, mundus and dps?

    35k really isn’t bad nowadays. If you’re using Mashinate’s or Alcast’s bars, you might wanna reconsider. By using “convenience bars” (switch to backbar every x seconds and reapply everything), you’re losing ~2k DPS. My best so far was 39k, but that was kind of cheating (shock enchant on infused gives some OP off balance, which would be provided in a raid setting). Thus, shock enchant is only good if you wanna brag with a dummy screenshot to people that have no idea.

    I’d say 37k is the current meta for mNB. Higher numbers on skeleton require setups that will be yield less DPS in a raid.

    I’m just about to hit 160 CP – is 5x LoJ + 5x Mother’s Sorrow + 1x Monster sufficient until I’m able to run trials and vMA?

     

    If not the above combo what else should I consider? 3x Willpower + 2xMonster + 5x LOJ?

    I find 2x Monster stronger for magblade, but it depends on what you already have.
