    Summerset will buff this build by ALOT.

    • Two Handed Weapons now count as two set pieces, thus making Staves and Two Handers worth two slots. This is an insane change and will impact balance and the possibilities of set combinations by a lot, especially for magicka setups as they are the most common users of two handed weapons.  Thanks to this, having Armor Of Truth 2H weap will allow you to proc it and off-balance enemy even on 2H bar while executing so more execute damage.
    • Light and Heavy Attacks now scale differently, they now scale about the same with Magicka/ Stamina as with Spell/ Weapon damage. Therefore, weaving will be even more important from now on as the overall damage of both Light and Heavy Attacks got increased by a lot. More damage to our heavy attacks.
    • Dropped jewelry needs to be re-traited in a Transmute station, to research the traits you need to own Summerset isles Chapter. We will able to re-trait all healthy jewels to Robust.
    • Combustion Passive Every time you apply burning/poison, you gain 500 magicka or stamina, this has a 5 seconds cooldown. More sustain.
