Gear and Item Set Info
Helm - Velidreth - Medium
Shoulder- Velidreth - Light
Velidreth is a great set for this build because we can stay at range and deal damage with it. It is also disease damage which is nice. The helm drops in Veteran Cradle of Shadows and you can get the shoulder from Urgalarg Chief-Bane's chest with Undaunted Keys.
Chest - Hunding's Rage - Heavy
Gloves - Hunding's Rage - Medium
Belt - Hunding's Rage - Medium
Legs - Hunding's Rage - Medium
Boots - Hunding's Rage - Medium
Hunding's Rage is a tried and true Stam DPS set. One of the Staples of the game. This can be crafted with 6 traits and there are forges in Bangkorai, The Rift, and Reaper's March. Heavy chest for Max armor value and Undaunted passive.
Necklace - Briarheart
Rings 1&2 - Briarheart
Bow 1 - Briarheart
Bow 2 - Briarheart/Thunderous Volley (Maelstrom Bow)
Briarheart gives us a good chunk of weapon damage and some added survivability with the heals on crit.
On the back bar sub out Briarheart bow for Thunderous Volley from the Maelstrom arena if you have it. It is a massive DPS increase.
For Enchants you will want to run Tri-Stat on Helm, Chest, and Legs. Max Stamina on Shoulders, Gloves, Belt, and Boots. Weapon Damage on Necklace. Stamina Recovery on Rings. Bow 1 you want to have Poison, Disease, or Stamina Absorbtion. Bow 2 Increase Weapon Damage.
For Traits you will want Infused on Chest, Legs, Necklace, and Bow 2. Divines on Helm, Shoulder, Gloves, Belt, and Boots. Robust on the Rings. Bow 1 you can either go with Infused or Nirnhoned your choice.
Use the 20% weapon damage, 20% stamina recovery and 10% crit potions. Try and get the medicinal use passive from the alchemy line. This makes potions last 47.2 seconds which is more than the 45 second cooldown allowing you to keep the buffs up 100% of the time.
For food anything with Max Health and Stamina plus recovery.
Stay at range as much as possible and near your healers.
Champion Point Tips
Thief you will want 75 in mooncalf and 75 in tenacity. Then put the rest into reducing the cost of dodgeroll, breakfree, and Sprint depending on your play style. In order to sustain because mobility is your greatest defense.
Warrior you will want the typical ironclad, thick skin, elemental defender ect.
Mage you will want physical, poison, and disease damage. Damage overtime damage. Direct damage. Critical damage and weapon attack damage.
