    Instead of 4/5 acuity, 5 architect, 1 kena, 0/1 vMA we can now use this setup with a complete monster set like zaan for example.

    For my mag dk 5 bsw 5 elfbane 2 zaan. You’ll see this be the meta for mag dks with insane numbers. As for my magplar, will likely run a ranged build of 5 julianos 3 IA 1 slime 1 iceheart MA destro back and torugs destro front(will be using dark flare)

    Siroria + X, but definitely siroria. For my magdk siroria with either bsw or elfbane depending on which i prefer when i test it and grothdarr/zaan/valkyn depending on content.
    On my magblade probably either siroria + bsw or juli or if ill manage to get an architect inferno a setup with architect instead of siroria for group utility.

    I havent seen specific testing of this but i stocked up on elfbane for this purpose. Looking forward to improved sustain and dps. Depends how long it will take me to be able to transmute the jewellery to arcane.

    PvE: Some combo of elfbane, siroria, BSW, and zaan/skoria depending on the fight.

    PvP: Shackle, DR, Valkyn. OR CA/Shackle/Valkyn with a potion build

    Depends on the build. Its highly rotation dependent, so 1baring it seems difficult. Meaning with certain sets that need to be 2bar'd it won't be the best.

    Of my piles of magdps BoE equipment, I'm thinking I'd pair Julianos with either Sorrow, Destruction Mastery, or Spinner's. Sorrow looks better for PvE. Spinner's looks better for PvP (where criticals are less effective). Destruction Mastery's somewhere in between, not best for either, but not bad.

    Edit: Mad Tinkerer has my attention too. It's a choice between being ~4-5% stronger in Summerset with two pure dps sets, or being only ~2-3% stronger but randomly stunning every non-boss. It's 2-3 piece bonuses make it kinda awkward though, since procs can't crit, and crits are less helpful in PvP where such a proc is most handy.

    I'm switching to stamblade TBH. Not much reason to play magblade over stamblade for PvP. Especially if I already know how Nightblades work
