    In general you can never go wrong with blood spawn. More ult and armour=more damage/resources/survival, the most safe option. More experienced players would go Skoria and give up those things to kill faster.

    Skoria
    Skoria provides much-needed burst.

    Bloodspawn can be a good choice.

    Grothdarr is more useful (imo) for group play or bombing. I've never loved it solo.

    Engine Guardian can be really strong, but I'd play without it first--if you find yourself constantly resource starved, then check it out! On DK, I'd prefer Bloodspawn as a "sustain" set via battle roar, though.

    Pirate skeleton imo is the best for open world 1vX as u are very squishy in LA and bloodspawn will not provide u with enough tankiness to survive all the dmg out there.

    While this is kind of true...the bar swap lag while wearing Pirate Skelly WILL end up killing you at some point. So...I just stick with Bloodspawn.

    Sun, alteration mastery, and skoria with 2 regen / 1 spell dmg glyphs, Atronach, and tri-food sound good in CP campaign?

    I read somewhere that if you wear a costume it stops that I can't remember where I saw it though

    You used to be able to. But ZOS decided to not allow any (quest) appearances in PvP anymore instead of just fixing the stupid button delay. Typical band-aid fix.

    Skoria
    Bloodspawn and Skoria are very interchangeable imo. Solo I would say bloodspawn group play I would say Skoria. I have run both extensively and I find myself using Skoria more. That's just me though.

    I like bloodspawns utility it brings but the much needed dmg that scoria brings seems just to strong in the current meta to pass up

    yeah, the whole light armor thing is a bit of a challenge, have 2 heavy grothdar to go along with silks of the sun and night mother's sorrow...crit and burn, crit and burn...

    I do wear skeleton costume to hide my procs from ps but it does not get rid of the bug. Sometimes i cant get out of mistform, sometimes cant weaponswap. But still best set ever :)

    hmmmm, gotten my attention have you...

    any one know which set might put out more consistent heat:

    Valkyn Skoria Set
    (1 items) Adds 1064 Max Health
    (2 items) When you deal damage with a damage over time effect, you have an 8% chance to summon a meteor that deals 9000 Flame Damage to target and 4000 Flame Damage all other enemies within 5 meters. This effect can occur once every 5 seconds.

    or

    Grothdarr Set
    (1 items) Adds 967 Max Magicka
    (2 items) When you deal damage, you have a 10% chance to create lava pools that swirl around you, dealing 2000 Flame Damage to all enemies within 8 meters of you every 1 second for 5 seconds. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds.

    Running mighty chudan on my small scale setup at the moment and it is just great.... gives a lot of resistance, hp, and frees up a slot for one skill, plus saves some magica since I don't have to run volatile armor
