I’m going to share with you my super secret build. It’s so good. You’ll be wandering why isn’t anyone talking about this. Ok, it’s because all the cool kids are concerned with getting 100k DPS making sweet Love to some iron Atros and not actually playing the game.
So you’re gonna need that Trials gear. No getting around it. You’ve heard of it. Seen people linking and collecting it. It’s so good. On Every magic character ever. 5 years in the making for the Dev team to give us the Magicka Equivalent of Vicious Ophidian.
False God’s Devotion
This set is perfect in every way even in plain un-Perfected form. It’s a DPS Set, a Crit Set, and a sustain set all rolled into one. You need it in your life like yesterday.
Now what do you pair it with? Julianos? BSW? Spider? Netch? Sun?
This is a grind few are willing to contend with. But it is so good. Ok you caught me. I probably wouldn’t grind this out either, but I so happened to have a, Ice Staff and a couple lightning staves of it lying around. Sure an inferno would be better, but it’s still good and I Love it I’m sure you will too.
So the bad news is You’re gonna need That Scathing Destro Staff to really make it Pop
. But it’s game changing. Just like A BSW Inferno.
Iceheart Monster Set
it gives you some Crit, a Damage shield, and it does a little bit of DPS for you. It procs non stop. Really should be BiS for any magic based character trying to get through VMA and dungeons.
A Few Disclaimers
First off, know that I am bad. Meaning I’ll often set my skills out in the wrong place, have to reposition, roll dodge, heal up, start rotation over again etc. I’ll probably never “get good” in that aspect of things.
Secondly, I strongly detest beating on dummies to perfect a rotation, so some will very well likely do much better than I with the same gear. It is possible also that I’m kind of ok, so some will struggle to get up to my level.
So, sloppy rotation. Probably not the most efficient rotation, definitely not BiS gear combos. Arcane Jewelry. Apprentice Mundus for spell power.
So my results on the Mournful Aegis 6.4mil dummy are:
Warden w/ Scathing ice staff front Maelstrom Inferno back - 31kDPS
Necromancer w/ Scathing Lightning Front Maelstrom Inferno back 34kDPS
Edit to add a little:
Here is a small clip of it in action. Notice how magic sustain is not really an issue. And using tripots instead of spell power pots. And don’t worry about the game puking all over itself because that’s just what it does.
