Gear and Item Set Info

 

Gear:

- 5x Burning Spell Weave Armor - All Divines, All Max Magicka Enchant

- 4x Infallible Aether/Moondancer - Arcane Jewelry & Sharpened Lightning Staff, All with Spell Dmg Enchant

- 2x Grothdar/Illambris - 1 Medium, 1 Heavy, Both Max Magicka Enchants, either Divines/Infused

- 1x Maelstrom Inferno Staff - Sharpened

- Moondancer is BiS, but Infallible Aether is a good choice if you don't have Moondancer. Willpower would be the next set to go to if you don't have Infallible Aether or Moondancer.

- Grothdar pulls higher dps than Illambris imo and should be used over Illambris in any case unless you are forced to go range, then Illambris is the way to go.

- Front Bar is the Inferno Staff and Back Bar is the Lightning Staff.

- If you don't have set pieces of either staff, a non set Sharpened staff is still a good placeholder.

- The Attributes posted above are with Blue Max Health and Max Magicka Food Buff.

- 5 light, 1 medium, 1 heavy armor pieces mainly for the Undaunted Passive that grants more resources when wearing more than one armor weight. Plus you can get some of the passives from each armor skill line. 

 

General Info

 

Consumables:

- Use Blue Max Health and Max Magicka Food.

- Optional: use Essence of Spell Power Pots.

Skill Alternatives:

- You may swap out Inner Light on the back bar for Harness Magicka for fights that have a lot of incoming damage

- You may also swap out Sap Essence for Harness Magicka for high incoming damage fights, single target and for a potion buff playstyle.

Rotation:

Step 1: Merciless Resolve > Siphoning Attacks > Bar Swap

Step 2: Inferno Heavy Attack > Crippling Grasp > Light Attack > Blockade > Light Attack > Swallow Soul > Light Attack > Swallow Soul > Bar Swap

Step 3: Light Attack > Twisting Path > Light Attack > Assassin's Will > Elemental Rage (if available)

Repeat Steps

For Execute Phase, only use Blockade and Impale. Use Soul Harvest if it's available.

- Start with Elemental Rage for Boss fights if you have it up before then.

- Other than for Execute Phase, Soul Harvest is only for ultimate gain and use Elemental Rage instead.

- Why a Lightning Staff? 

We have two big damage skills that are AOE for all fights including single target boss fights. Equipping a Lightning Staff along with a Destruction ability slotted, hence Elemental Rage, boosts all AOE damage by 8%. Boosting Sap Essence's damage is also a plus.
