    Im currently running 5 Mothers Sorrow, 5 Julianos and 2 Grothdarr with Julianos Weapons. No Aether/MD or BSW due to my 3/4 Year Break and the only Piece from DSW i got from solo farming CoA1 at this time is one damn Ring. Looks like that im now getting asskicked late for giving all my looted Aether/MD Stuff away when i took short Breaks from my Break to do a Raid from time to time :(

    But at least i got the perfect 2 Grothdarr Pieces in just 2 Days.

     

    Do you think it could be an DPS Increase on AoE if i use a Mothers Sorrow Sword instead of the second Armor Piece so i have the 5 Pieces Julianos on Staff Backbar and just lose the 5 Pieces Mothers Sorrow?

    Hi, my trials leader & I are disagreeing on my gear setup, and I wonder if I could solicit your opinion, Latter.  She's suggesting gr+5 MD (2pc + jewelry) + 5 Julianos - until I can get MD swords.  I was suggesting gr + 5 MD + 3 BSW + 2 swords (not sure which.  I have Mother's sorrow, sharpened.  Keep using those?  Something else?)

     

    Anyway, I don't have weapons for BSW or MD yet - Other than that I've got the sets.  I'm still on TBS + Mother's Sorrow.  So if you could weigh in, I'd appreciate it.

     

    Thanks!

    Not Latter, but I find it difficult to believe 3 BSW and a 2 piece weapon set will be superior to 5 Julianos, you'd basically be giving up 688 crit + a huge 5 piece (299 spell damage/BSW procs) for a crit/magicka/spell damage bonus (roughly equivalent to the 688 crit)

     

    Unless you meant 5 BSW + 3 MD?

    What she is suggesting is what i will have to use untill i get proper gear..

    If you have 2 BSW swords in sharpened go with that.. If not, her suggestion is better. Mothers sorrow is a bad idea.

    Mothers sorrow is a pretty bad set atm, most sets would be prioritized over that, and i feel you, the gear grind is hard :(

    While I think Latters gear setup is likely the best possible,

    I'd say 5 Julianos (with swords) + 5MD is a pretty good setup. The advantages are that you can just execute in the final phase, you can synergize for MD on both bars. Due to this, I would even recommend this for ppl who are struggling with the more complex decisions and positioning you have to make in this setup.

    Thanks for the advice.  And I especially want to say thanks to Latter for trying this stuff out & sharing your insights.  It's really helpful for the rest of us.

    I entirely agree, this is what i'm using at the moment as i don't have MD swords :(

    Hiya,

     

    I've been playing a Magplar since beta days and have managed to pick up pretty much all the items in the various builds I see posted (though haven't tried farming Moondancer).  I wondered what you though about 2xKena, 5 x Julianos and 5x BSW ?  I am running tis just now and its really good to my mind if you can get the procs anyway.  I still have a fair bit of work to do no doubt on rotations and haven't really settled on skills but again run a mix-match of various builds.  Only thing I haven't looked at is CP's.  I tried using the calculator by Asyre but in honesty couldn't really figure it out !

    currently I use :

    Dual Wield - InnerLight, sweeps, Channelled Focus, Darkflare, Radiant destruction and Shooting star (Julianos swords one sharpened and one Nirn)

    Dest Staff (inferno) - Elemental Drain, Blockade, Rearming trap, Flame Pulsar (or Shards), Breath of Life and Elemental Storm.

     

    wondered what you thought of this as a setup and if you could give me any pointers on CPs or suggestinons on things that I really ought to change ?

     

    Mostly I do solo PVE and Pledges with random groups....

     

    (maybe I ought to say I have Grothgarr, Illambris, Rattelcage and Mothers Sorrow as options too..also 9 trait crafter in all)

     

    also stats as above setup (no buffs other than skills / passives active) :

    DW Bar : 2667 SD, 66.9 Crit, 34,648 Magicka, 11,637 health (no food)

    Staff Bar : 2105 SD,  56.9 Crit, 32,154 Magicka,  11,637 Health (no food)

    Uhm well the first thing thats wrong with your setup is your bars.

    1st Your dw bar you should get rid of dark flare, especially in solo pve you are a sitting pidgeon when channeling it and the major defile isnt helpful.

    2nd why breath of life? Harness magicka works alot better.

    3rd reflective light or vampires bane is also a huge chunk of your dps fit these abilities on your bar you will see a significant change to your damage.

    I would change your 2x kena to grothdar if youre using bsw

    Hiya Coochie,

     

    appreciated for your time in dropping me a reply :)

     

    I have found that Darkflare, Blockade, Flame Pulsar and I think light/heavy attacks with inferno staff also proc my BSW though - pretty sure but will test again on a practice dummy...

     

    I'll try swapping out BoL for Magicka Harness on second bar and also pick up Vampires bane / Reflective light to test them out too.  Lastly will do a couple of runs / test with Grothdar...

     

    Will report back !  happy for any other feedback - re-specing / changing skills are expensive....also seems rather than magika Harness in Latters build he uses the other morph ?

    Member81 Posts

    Yep dampen magic is now viable since sustain is no longer a huge issue, however in vma or solo i prefer harness magicka for extra sustain.

     

    Dark flare causes magic damage it shouldnt be able to proc bsw,

    The other abilities you listed do proc bsw.

  16. Glenzo

    Member3 Posts

    Yip indeed no proc on dark flare :)

     

    still to spend the hard earned gold and respc / re-skill...but hopefully over the weekend will get a chance and get some info back - appreciated again.

    Where's that written guide, man! :P

    Nah the video does a good job, but it'd be nice to come back to a written reference sometime. Cheers!

    Quick question for you, Latter, or for anyone that can answer it.  In your most recent video you mention that it might be better to wear Infused on big pieces if you are NOT running Rearming Trap.  Why is this?  It would seem to me that if you're giving up the Rearming Trap crit bonus that would be even more reason to wear Divines.

    I've been a fan of your build since I came back to the game a couple months ago.  Right now I'm CP280ish and I don't have all the MD stuff I need, so I'm running BSW+Julianos with Grothdar.  I do get in mana tight situations in some vet dungeons and trials, but my CP has a lot to do with that.  So I was thinking going Infused on a couple pieces wouldn't be a bad idea, at least until I level up more.  I have been running Rearming Trap, so when I heard you mention that alongside wearing some Infused, I was a little confused.  Any clarification you can provide would be awesome.

    Thanks,

    Rob
