    Hey Alcast, thanks for sharing all of those builds. First, wish you all the best for the upcoming exams.

    As on consoles we don't have so much possibilities to get a detailed combat log, may I ask why you're slotting mages light instead of mages wrath on your Magsorc pet build?
    Does it work out better to have the higher crit chance instead of a execute skill?

    Edit: No way I got more dps using Mages wrath. So I keep slotting Mages light as well. Giving a whole bunch of extra magicka from the mages guild passive (around 3k).

    Ye the reason I slot Inner LIght is because of the extra 7% max magicka you get from it. Mages wrath is kinda weak and not worth using, especially because yo only really use it in execute. At least that is my experience with it hehe


    I just uploaded the Magicka DK build

    First time with new style build videos, changing the focus more on rotation and Combat metrics parses :) You can find Combat Metrics Parse and Rotation on my website. I hope you guys like it!

    Hi I'm at 450 cp and I've set a fair few of my Champ points as suggested from the beamplar listed on Alcast site, my issue is while I'm melting mobs in game my single target DPS on dummies is falling very short of what people say is a good DPS, yet in game things are still dying fairly fast, I'm squishy as hell so require self heals or a damn good healer in end game content

    Why are my single target numbers so pathetic ?

    A while back they changed it. Everything bleeds now.

    Because the bleed dot from Twin Blade & Blunt passive + dagger (crit bonus) gives better dps than just two bleed dots stacked.

    Ye the extra damage mitigation from Dualwield is insane. Feels more like 50% instead of the 25% haha.

    I will start working on Builds for Horns of the Reach now.

    I am planning on dooing a Templar Tank. Still havent had the chance to create one tho. Hope soon.


    Just finished the Stamina DK Heavy Armor PvP Build for Horns of the Reach, looking good! Buildvideo will come once update goes live, as some things still might change.

    Might I add a request to an update to the bow/bow warden build for hotr?

    I have currently been running 5 hundings/5 hircines veneer but essentially your build, and I have found it to be pretty versatile.
    On WBs and in vet dungeons i started slotting resolving vigor on the front bar, just for some added utility, but overall I have found it to be a really great build.
    HotR changes a lot of stuff though, and im curious what alterations you might suggest.

    Petless Build is actually performing pretty well. Still unsure which one will do better, in the end maybe a mix of both haha. I will wait for todays Patch Notes and then do a video about it really quickly so people are informed and I can adjust my builds if needed.
    If the enchantment damage stays the same on non MSA staves, then MSA Staves are not THAT good anymore. Like you actually will loose 1-2k dps from them. But we will see after todays patch.

    Interesting.
    Looks like I'll be seeing more of Darkshade Caverns for a while getting the Netch's Touch stuff. And Direfrost Keep for the Iceheart helm.
    My healer will be seeing a lot of action for a while. :D
