Gear and Item Set Info
This will get you pretty nice DPS numbers but is not really an "optimized" build for vet trials etc. I prefer simple builds for what I do so please change according to your needs and wants.
As of now I generally just "gold-out" my weapons and sometimes my monster set or big pieces so I'm sitting at 42k magicka without gold gear. My ward is over 10k and Mage's wrath melts everything.
Mundus: Atronoch (I want more recovery since I use this in vMA too) so I sit close to 2k recovery.
Gear set 1: Necropotence jewelry and staves. Jewelry all Arcane all Spell damage glyphs. Backbar is Infused Inferno with Weapon Damage glyph, frontbar is Sharpened Lightning staff with Shock glyph.
Gear set 2: Destruction Mastery. I'm running 5 Infused and 2 Divines, 6 max magicka glyphs, 1 Health Glyph on chest.
Monster: Ice Heart (Ilambris or Grothdarr)
Potions: generic magicka pots or crafted Increase Spell Crit
Poisons: I don't use them very often but Damage Health are solid
I run a ward on both bars, I just prefer having it there because doing a lot of solo content you don't have a healer. The second ward slot is a flex spot. I'd run either Inner Light or Bound Agis for the 5% magicka increase if you'd prefer.
Pet is up to you. I just like the smaller pet and the type of damage it does.
