Why Vampires Bane?

    Some interesting ideas with gear setup there, I agree with some of your reasoning.

    Will have to spend a bit of time to look at the rest.

    Thank you for sharing.

    For you first gear setup;

    Single Target Destro Staff Setup:

    All gear is 5 light 1 medium 1 heavy.

    2 Willpower Jewelry pieces Arcane with Spell Damage enchants.

    1 Willpower Destro Staff Sharpened with Disease enchant (or Magicka return)

    1 Willpower Sharpened Sword

    1 Moondancer Sharpened sword

    1 Moondancer jewelry piece Arcane with Spell Damage enchants.

    2 Moondancer Armor pieces divines with Magicka Enchants

    5 Julianos Armor pieces all divines with full Magicka Enchants

     

    Why don't you run 3x will power jewellery, more Moondancer armor pieces so you can run Julianos Nirn swords? Or am I missing something here?

    Nice guide, Nos :)

    One thing that jumped out at me: disease damage on weapon? I understand this pre-Thieves Guild when Thaumaturge benefited it, but won't an Absorb Magicka or Shock/Fire damage enchantment be more suitable? Even the poison DoT should do more damage than disease right since that will at least be boosted for the DoT portion thanks to Thaum if not the flat damage (which requires points in Mighty).

    It is to have 5 piece julianos on the DW and staff bar. He's using the staff for his primary DPS bar and DW for his AoE and execute bar.

    a, yeah, you're right. I keep forgetting he's using the staff for primary DPS.

    To be honest I'm not sure why it says disease, I wrote this guide down in one go and must have been looking at something else, you are of course correct in the fact that those two would benefit it more:) I will edit it.

    Haha it's the same with my latest guide - I had mistakes in places just from laziness and copy&paste issues :P

    Back to the enchantment though, I'm really unsure what to recommend tbh. Fire seems obvious but does it collide with the Burning effect from Vamp Bane and therefore not stack? Absorb magicka seems good for one of the DW enchants as sustain can be difficult on Templar and the proc is boosted by Ele Expert. Poison I hear is still more damage than Shock, though I haven't tested this myself.

    Yeah, I guess it is a more complicated question, I think I will give options and leave it up to the discretion of the individual.

    If I have chance this weekend I will test every enchantment I feel worthwhile and get some numbers back for us.

    The Damage from the Fire Glyphe colides with the Burning from Destro Staff Abilitys, so it isnt a good Choice. Absorb Magic on Staff and 1 Sword and Poison/Desease/Lightning on the other sword is the better Choice.

    Or you go double Absorb Magic on Swords. You cant proc both Enchantments if they have the same Quality but it stil works if they have different qualitys. Absorb Magic with Kuta on Mainhand and Absorb Magic with Rekuta on the second Sword works fine. A bit less Damage as with 2 Kuta Enchantment with different Effects but almost double the Magica Recovery.

     

    And dont worry about Mistakes in your Guide. My german Tank Guide is over 10 Pages in MS Word long now and i find Typos or bad Discriptions everytime i read it again ;)

    In the destro main bar setup there is no need to enchant the swords since you will never hit with them. They are for execute and AoE Purposes. As for the fire enchant, that is what I was afraid of...currently I have absorb magicka on my staff, i guess i will keep it:)

    Found out that there are no Moondancer swords, had to change the back bar on the destro setup from 1 moondancer sharpened to 1 random crafted nirnhoned sword. It lowers the overall dps of the backbar build by 1.5%, so not a huge amount, but its sad regardless.
