I've been a magicka dk for about two months now and just started to get into pvp. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with what to use.

    Magic dk as a solo toon is not viable ATM in the game. Only about five ppl in the game can pull it off. They are elite players. Ppl like Skaffa and Vyr Cor. They are fine in groups even good but solo you will die constantly be upset and quit. They also do well in duels but against 2 or three players or more... Ouch. If you played earlier in the game they were ESO gods but not so much anymore.

    Yeah that's a good set up for a group. I would try to get helm and shoulder of blood spawn. Dks need ult gen.

    Okay so basically mDK will die open field 1vx. My first move when engaging more then one or two is to go into a building or around rocks to line of sight. Get them all in a tight space so your aoe can do the most damage.

    Keep buffs up constantly, don't play defensive all the time because otherwise you will die. Use your ultimate wisely as they will be the things that kill people the most.

    This build is bad, why 2 seducer 2 torugs when you could run 4 magnus and get the same thing, plus an additional magika bonus?

    Also, why julianos on a DK? They actually have some value in the health stat so the health bonus on kag's isn't a waste and you'll want that sustain more than just 75 more spell dam imo.

    Vicious death could work on mag dk, and it will get bonus damage from dk passives. I think Fasalla's guile is superior though.

    5 kag's
    5 Fasalla's guile
    2 skoria/bloodspawn

    seems like the most balanced setup for DK atm, imo
    double s/b or s/b resto are both workable
    Basically your burst is just gonna be Det+inhale explosion+shooting star(fossilize to guarantee it hits)+skoria meteors. With the fasalla heal debuff its gonna be hard to counter your burst, since you can ensure your shooting star isn't blocked.

    Obviously 7 impen on armor. Shields reinforced(shield expert CP passive, since you'll want block cost reduction and resistant cp anyway)

    Light armor vastly outperforms heavy for magika DKs atm(and for everyone else too)

    In my suggested setup, you'd run 3 fasalla jewelry 2 heavy armor with 5 light kags

    I like the 5 pc kags but I can't wrap my head around the fasalla set. What about maybe 4pc magnus or seducer because I find a lot of my problems lie with running out of resources

    5 pc kags 4 pc mag/seducer 3 willpower is very solid.

    The appeal in fasalla is that your opponent, by being offensive, puts himself in a compromised position where he has to stop attacking you to heal, or exhaust his resources trying to heal through the debuff

    By using fasalla you also lose an enormous amount of magicka due to the fact that the jewelry is only available in healthy. That's the only thing keeping me from trying it out.

    That's true, the idea is that the extra pressure from the heal debuff will make up for the loss in overall damage. Vicious Death is gonna give you better overall stats and that flashy 5 piece so its not a bad choice.

    I've been running 5 VD, 5 Kags, 1 BS, 1 Kena and it has been a blast. 1vX has been insanely fun as well, maybe it is just the playstyle I am using but I am not sure. I have been melting people with this. I d k why people keep bashing on mag dk, despite the broken scales this class works way better than last patch.

    Keep julianos, run 4pc magnus for more magika. Cc bot like crazy, might ve able to pull it off. The problem im seeing is no burst. Rally almost heals faster then the dots do damage, and if you dedicate a dot build purge is hard counter and will own you

    I don't know man, I'd lose somewhere around 4k magicka and 350 spell damage by switching to fasalla, don't really think it's worth it tbh.

    Because people that don't play the class, just repeat what others say on the forum as if it''s a fact?!

    Or because some twitch streamers compare the class to broken OP'ed other class builds, then cry they can't do 5v1 on DK/Templar as if the game is designed as a solo 1v5 arena. And their flock will happily spread the word everywhere.

    5 kags, 2 torugs (weapons), 3 willpower, 2 engine guardian. 5/1/1 light. Double dual weild. Damage = healing for a mag dk now. I find the faster people die the less I have to heal and the faster I kill them the more healing I get. Pretty cool concept if you ask me.

    I've had very few problems with anything. 1vx capable up to a reasonable number and of course depends on your opponents skill level, solo capable, always great in groups I mean I'm a dk.

    Of course all this from everyone is meaningless if you don't have the skill to play any of it (not saying you don't) or if these set ups don't fit your play style. There are a lot of good ideas here however, I suggest you tinker around on your own. You can get a pretty good idea of how it will work with vet 15 gear. Your weapons should always be v16 and gold.

    I'm running 5 Kags, 4 Mags with S/B, and Resto on back bar, 5/1/1.

    I'm getting burst down fast, like in seconds. I have Impen on all my gear, but my problem is as V16 and Been away from the game for over 5 months, all I have are 240CP. So when it comes to the Warrior CP Tree i'm totally lost. I gotta put points into Block Exp, then you got Spell Shield/ Resistant/Hardy/Elemental Def/ and Bastion.

    I look up a lot of these builds, but they are all based on 501 CP. So for me, with only 80 points to put in Warrior Tree, I have no idea what to put the points in because there is so much spread out. I'm not sure if I should go 5 Heavy/1/1 until I get more CP, or sit in the back and heal and use Destro Staff in my current set up.

    I'm just lost in the warrior tree with 80 CP and need help on what to do with my lack of CP.
