Gear and Item Set Info
You can go many different ways with the gear. I use mostly trial and dungeon gear. Some of it is very expensive and hard to get at this time.
2x Axe of the Dreugh King Slayer
2x Dagger of the Dreugh King Slayer
5x Hunding's Rage Armor Pieces
2x Spawn of Mephala
3x Dreugh King Slayer Jewelry Pieces
You will not need to use this set if you plan on using Igneous Weapons or any other skill that gives Major Brutality. This set will not be useful for certain solo bosses who don't spawn adds (such as Lord Warden). The other sets I use are Viper's Sting, Skirmisher's Bite, Roar of the Alkosh, and Morag Tong. Other monster sets you could use are Valkyn Skoria or Molag Kena, but I highly recommend sticking with the Spawn of Mephala. Buff Molten Armaments, heavy attack, Spawn of Mephala will proc for 12,000 poison damage over 10 seconds.
You will be up and the line of danger quite often. This is why Dreugh King Slayer will be very helpful. Every time you kill an enemy, you proc Major Expedition.
Also, when low on resources, buff up with Molten Armaments and heavy attack a strong enemy. This will proc Spawn of Mephala, which deals 1,200 poison damage and snares the energy 50% for 10 seconds.
Hunding's Rage is just a flat out great DPS set as usual. You can switch this out for Viper's Sting is you want. Viper's Sting procs 7,000 poison damage every 4 seconds you hit an enemy with a melee attack.
