Gear and Item Set Info

 

Set 1: Shackle Breaker 

  • Front bar - Nirhoned Inferno, enchant is up to you
  • Back bar - Nirhoned resto (buffs Healing Ward to 6k + another 5k block-shield from Psijic passive), enchant is up to you
  • Infused chest
  • Infused legs
  • Infused feet 

Set 2: Spinner's (with CP you'll sit at 7.7k pen)

  • Reinforced belt (trait helps us get to 16.5k resists unbuffed)
  • Reinforced gloves  
  • Jewelry all Arcane all recovery (2.2k recovery unbuffed so adjust glyphs as you see fit)

Monster 1: Impen Domi 

Monster 2: Any max magicka in Impen 

 

General Info

 

I have not fully tested this as of yet but have run a very similar setup before with good results. The point of the build is to get rid of Annulment and increase overall resistances while still maintaining Crit and Pen. With NB passives you will sit at 21k spell and physical resists and 2k crit resist. You can also run 5 light/2 heavy and still get to 17k resists and swap to Spell damage mundus. 

Race: High Elf

Mundus: Thief (will put you at 43% on front bar, we dont need anything on the back because we auto-crit from stealth) 

Food: Witchmother's, Bi-stat (HP/Mag), Tri-stat, all depending on what recovery you are comfortable at.

There is some flexibilty to skills here:

  • No Psijic or don't like that skill
  • Run Shadow Image 
  • Run Crippling Grasp if you'd like 
  • Run Impale which is a great execute (will cost more next patch?)
  • Run Soul Assault
  • Run Reviving Barrier in seiges 

I would not change running Shadowy Disguise and Concealed on the same bar. The mobility is too good. I would also not change running Flame Reach/Swallow Soul together as this is your main damage weave and Swallow Soul is getting a damage buff as of recent Patch Notes.
