The Vicious Serpent Set... Bruh...

I have finally obtained all gold jewelry pieces of the Vicious Serpent set (the RNG was kind to me), and have come to what I feel to be a brick wall. Lol. I don't know what body pieces to pair with the head and shoulders. Lmao.

I've no lie been surfing the web for about a good 2-3hrs. trying to decide on a set to pair with it, and I'm stuck between: Nightmother's Gaze, Twice-Born Star, Hunding's Rage, Viper's Sting, and Red Mountain. This is for a stamina-based, Dragonknight, which is also a Redguard. And most likely will be doing content like Veteran Maelstrom Arena and trials every here and there with some guildies. Also daily veteran undaunted pledges.

Edit: Grammar and spelling changes, bruh. Lol.

    I'm personally using TBS with VO (and maelstrom weapons ofc), since I prefer to have at least 17k health, but also because I'm a fluffy 4-legged meowing thingy (+8% crit chance = better synergy with crit damage).

    Second choice would be NMG, since it's an effective boost to all stamina DDs in the raid, only issue I see is that if you run vMA, 16k health on a stam build is quite punishing.

    Hm... Very true. Very true indeed.

    In my opinion and experienced for my set up, I would recommend a couple sets as options based on circumstances.

    - Nightmother's Gaze
    Highest DPS if solo or in group and no one else is using it to apply the debuff

    - Twice Born Star
    Full raid debuffs and optimal War Horn uptime. This set also help with more hp allow veteran content to be more forgiving

    - Alkosh
    Highest buff to overall group DPS however use only if your tank does not have it


    I run NMS gaze when I do vMA, pugs for dailies, and if I am confident in healers for pug normal trials otherwise I wear TBS for all veteran content.

    I'd say Nightmother's Gaze, only because it's both helpful for group content and is slightly better than Hunding's Rage as far as damage goes for solo content.

    Twice-Born, I feel, is only as useful as it is in Trial settings and on the rare PvP group that actually know how to coordinate. Viper's Sting, while incredibly powerful on its own doesn't help much in group play, same for Red Mountain.

    I run TBS along with my VO (Khajit), 7 med in trials and one heavy chest piece for MSA to boost myself to 18k hp.
    Got my flawless conqueror with that yesterday, was running Red Mountain before (it was a bit painful with only 16k hp although RM had the better dps output in the arena).
    For trials, TBS outputs more dps, for single target boss fights you'd ideally switch out two VO pieces for Velindreth (for AOE too but that could be quite hard to sustain but you're a Redguard, so just try it out).

    Their no point of you using VO right now @Ch4mpTW minor slayer is broken on both PS4 and Xbox so your 3 piece is useless.

    I know, but I'm talking about once it's fixed (in however many weeks or months that may be from now)...

    I run it with Black Rose in PvP and with TBS in PvE. Mostly because of the additional health and stamina.

    NMG seems like to much of a compromise (no health or stamina) for the extra DPS. Agility seems like a better set to pair NMG with.

    I wouldn't pair with alkosh because of the redundant slayer bonuses.

    Minor slayer is working in vMA, I usually run TBS, but tried NMG yesterday seems just as good if not better, hard to tell though as it was a very laggy run

    The 5 piece set bonus is downright game-changing.

    But it doesn't proc on boss adds. If you get no xp you get no stam return or speed buff. It's actually quote useless that 5th perk in trials. I swap out for boss fights and go from 5vo+5tbs to 3vo,5tbs, 1pc Kena and 1pc blood spawn.

    Prime example is overfiend. You'll be out of stam within 30s. No xp from any add.

    I'd say that it depends very much on what your group is running. Every "ideal" trials group should include a healthy war horn rotation, Infallible Aether, SPC, Alkosh, Sunderflame, Night Mother, and potentially a couple others, but those are the core buff/debuff sets. Of those, the only ones that you would consider running as a stam build would be Alkosh, Sunderflame, and Night Mother. If all three of these are already present in your trials group, then wear TBS with your VO. If any of them are missing, then be the hero that runs it!

    TBS for trials if no one is running NMG. Thief and Shadow mundus.

    Hundings for solo (I use TBS anyway though)
