Question about Halls of Fabrication gear sets

Because of the Morrowind event, I did nHoF several times last week, and got a full set of War Machine, plus other pieces of the Master Architect set.

On "paper" these sets look quite good, I mean some classes have cheap ultimates which can be used often to get the major slayer buff. They also look awesome, especially the medium and heavy armour variants.

My question is, why aren't these sets used more often in builds? Are they a bad choice? Or the reason behind this is the availability of better/newer sets like Relequen or Siroria?

Thanks

    Master architect is used a lot on mag nightblades. War machine can be used too.. but with stam dmg so high you are better off with mag wearing master architect and buffing the stam (if that makes sense). Both sets give the same buff.

    For my magblade I have several sets to chose from, Siroria, Inf Aether, Mother's Sorrow, Spell Strategist, BSW, so I was wondering if it is worth gathering the missing pieces for Master Architect, and if so, which combo would work best. My stamina char is my 3rd alt which I rarely play.

    Yes it’s good to have ma for mnb. Best combo would be spell strat and ma

    Before some changes and the introduction of the Relequen Set, it was one of the top PvE DPS sets. It’s still good.

    Both the major slayer sets are good, but if a dps if wearing it, they're gonna hit lower than someone going full damage but the trade off is, its gonna be higher group dps.

    A small sacrifice for the greater good

    MA is a nice set. But I prefer more of the sets you mentioned. The limitation is the 5th piece buff only triggering with an Ulti use. I’d rather have the constant damage I get from pairing IA with Spell Strategist (or IA plus Mothers Sorrow in AoE centered content). Siroria is great, but only in content where you stay stationary enough to take advantage of that 5th piece bonus.
