Perfected Asylum Ice Staff - Nirnhoned, Frost Enchant, Front

A Master's Ice Staff will work on the back if you can't get a Maelstrom one - move Destructive Clench to the back bar, Blockade to the front)

 

If you can't get the 1 piece staves, carry Infallible Aether/Moondancer Frost Staves.

 

If you don't/can't/haven't run Trials, so no IA/Moondancer, wear these set-ups:

 

5 Winterborn

General Info

 

Angalayond means "Winter" in Ayliedoon. 

 

People will automatically discount this build because of the Ice Staves, and I understand that and expect that.  Carrying Ice Staves is a Giant dps loss.  You're losing out on the 8% damage increase the Destruction Staff passive "Ancient Knowledge" gives Flame & Lightning Staves.  Also, in order to make Ice Staves work in PvE, you need to NOT purchase the "Tri-Focus" passive - it's the passive that makes your Ice Staff heavy attacks taunt the enemy.  (Which is also a dps loss - Flame/Lightning heavy attacks get a damage buff from this passive.)

 

Also, ZOS seems determined to make Frost damage subpar - 2 of your dps skills aren't exactly dps - "Arctic Blast" is a heal that does AoE Frost damage.  Crystallized Slab is a damage mitigation skill that returns frost damage to the attacker.  (You could replace these with more standard DoTs, like "Fetcher Infection," etc.)  

 

Don't try to make a huge impression with a dps parse.  You probably won'the with these skills.

 

You can try to mitigate the dps loss by being an Altmer (4% buff to Frost Damage) and carrying Nirnhoned Maelstrom & Asylum Frost Staves, but you probably will have a hard time pushing 30k in front of a test dummy.

 

Champion Point Tips

 

Typical Mag DPS set up.  (You may want some in "Blessed" for "Arctic Blast" to be meaningful enough to be worth slotting.)
