TL;DR -- for a DPS Magika Dragonknight, which is better for damage: Burning Spell Weave or Silks of the Sun? I figure this question is relevant to a lot of players here so I felt I'd post a new thread.
Hey all. I main a DPS Magika DK and I have an ability loadout that works well for me. My question is for end-game gearing, which should I be going for: Burning Spell Weave or Silks of the Sun? I know that even after the nerf BSW is still quite good on a mag DK as something like 99% of our damage is fire, but I have no idea how the actual numbers play out. I do know that Silks has +HP while BSW has +Spell Critical, which makes me lean to BSW... but I don't know how the actual numbers play out.
Right now, I'm running in 5pc Julianos (shoes, shirt, pants, gloves, weapons) with 4pc War Maiden (jewelry + belt), but I figure either BSW or Silks may edge out Julianos for someone who uses a lot of fire.
I do already have BSW shoes and gloves in Divines, gilded. Getting anything else has been difficult, however :( I admit that one of the tempting things about Silks is how much easier they are to obtain (buy off a guild vs grinding CoA for hours), but I'd like to know how the two sets stack up before either spending money or continuing to slam my face into CoA.
Finally, I'm not married to those two sets. If y'all know of another set that would be even better for a magika DPS DK, I'm all ears.
As a related question: Grothdarr, Ilambris, or Valkyn Skoria? I am aware that obtaining the Valkyn hat is MUCH more difficult than the other two (I have yet to even find a PUG that can get through all of CoAII, let alone do it mulitple times...), but, again, I am curious about how they stack up damage-wise. with that said, which one I ultimately go for may well just come down to which one drops in Divines from a chest first :\
