    From test on PTS 3.3.3, infused weapon damage and shock enchants. I also looked at infused weapon damage enchant and nirn with damage poison, but it came in worse than the double infused enchant on a 6m target.

    Has fire vma been tested on pts much for magsorc with the nerf to offbalance ? If so is it useful on single target for magika sorcs?

    It probably has been, but unfortunately it wasn't me.

    Patch goes Live next week anyway, if you don't have access to the PTS, you only need to wait another week before you can test directly on Live.

    If your whole group is at max health, who gets healed by Light's Champion? Obviously, if it's a different party member every tick, the buffs are a lot more valuable than if the same person keeps getting them.

    Monster set question:

    Does the proc with two items (helm and shoulder) work if the items are a different type of armor? 

    For example, can I use a Blood Spawn light helm and Blood Spawn medium shoulder and get the proc?

    I am asking this b/c my Nightblade has two medium bloodspawn items and procs all the time, but my sorcerer has a mix (light helm and medium shoulder) and doesn't seem to proc at all, from what I can see.

    Thank you!

     A few patches ago, it was by proximity to the caster.

     Yes.

    The discrepancy you observed is probably because your NB is in melee distance and Sorc is ranged (I assume based on your armour types). Blood Spawn has a 6% proc chance when taking damage with a 6 s cooldown, which is quite low in normal combat situations when you are not the tank.

    I'm bad at light attack weaving. I'd like to know how bad. 1. On a magblade who never needs to heavy attack, should the rate of light attacking be close to 1/sec, so that the ideal number of light attacks in a fight is just the number of seconds it lasted? 2. On a sorcerer who does make plenty of destro staff heavy attacks, is the ideal count for light attacks the number of seconds the fight lasted, minus twice the number of heavy attacks? (I'm conjecturing that a heavy attack takes 2 seconds, during which you don't light attack.)

    This forum doesn't look so used as I remember it! :(

    Question

    Assassin's Guile. Does it increase the duration of damage ticks? 

    If say, it was used with an Escapist's poison - would the duration of cc immunity also be increased?

     If the poison does x damage/s for y s, then yes, the damage ticks will continue for another 4 s with the specified amount per second. Same goes for healing/resource restored.

    I don't know about Escapist though, I haven't tested it with the set before.

    What is the easiest/fastest way to find a clothier training partner?

    Whats the best way to go from clothing level 6 to level 16?

     i know this is a necro, but might be of use to someone in the future, 

    first find a training partner by joining a guild and asking in guild chat/finding members near your level. i dont recommend asking in zone chat because you cant always trust people, and there will be trading involved.

    second craft a bunch of clothing, the higher the level the better (however avoid using upgrade materials that you can sell for a high price), then trade them to your partner for the similar items he made, deconstruct it all and restart.

    why this works? deconstructing crafted items gives a boost to inspiration, but not when its something the same character has made (you can use alternate characters here if you have one 

    what to consider? This method can be high in materials, you will get some back from the decon, but untill you get the perk that allows you to get more resourses back from deconstruction, your basically trading materials for inspiration (crafting XP), 

    Other Methods? As stated by another helpful member, dungeons are a great source of high quality weapons and armor, while farming for your own gear, decon the sets that you dont plan to use. overland bosses, chests and trials also are an option.
