    I am warden breton and have purple sets: iceheart 2\2, mother sorrow 5\5 and spell strategist 5\5. Mundus stone - Shadow.
    Without any bunuses and food I have about 30k magic, 1900 spell damage and 58% crit chance.
    I want to ask why my spell damage is so small?
    And maybe I have to transmute arcane to infusion in all my jewelery to encrease DPS?

    You will technically have an additional 500 spell damage as soon as Spell Strat procs bringing your up to 2400. In addition, check the glyphs on your jewelry, to ensure that they are all spell damage. Aside from those two things, Mother's Sorrow and Iceheart both are primarily crit sets, resulting in lower overall spell damage. Also check what your spell damage becomes when using a spell potion.


    Also, I personally do not recommend Iceheart inside my guide ~

    All glyphs on my jewelery with spell damage. Iceheart I use in Claudrest to stay alive when doing quests.
    I have about 20k DPS without food and poitions. And I dont understand how to encrease it to 50k at least.

    "The focus of this guide is to demonstrate the role of the Magicka Warden in vDLC Trials and Dungeons."

    I have no interest in doing a non trial gear section, mainly because if you're not doing trials or vdlc dungeons there's no need for any of the advice given in the guide. As it stands, normal content doesn't require anything special.

    For those wondering; I will be updating the magden guide in around 2 weeks from now to be up to date with the new patch. Until then!
