Four of my chars are imperials and only templar was made in magicka from start, but I want to try magicka version of dk and warden without making 2 more chars and diving into grind frenzy.
Despite imperial passives are more stam oriented they are obviously have use in pvp, having 2k more stam and health for mag build never hurts, and Red Diamond passive is good too because I'm playing in No-CP campaign only.
Here example of what I want for DK:
Inferno nirn staff with sustain glyph, backbar resto or s&b, for s&b setup rapid regen swaps to meditate, heroic slash, inhale, or maybe even vamp drain – there many choices, need some testing on that. Could also swap to volatile armor and use another monster set. Backbar ulti also could be magma, spell wall or resto ult as emergency button.
Heavy armor 5/1/1 for more defence and stats buff. BTB and Shacklebreaker with all prismatic glyphs. For monster set I'll start with Chudan, it will give more survivability, free slot and permabuff (saves some mag too), also can be changed to Engine guardian, Shadowrend or Stonekeeper for more sustain.
Tri stat pots or lingering health if using s&b. Maybe double dot or magicka and hp drain poisons.
Main combo: cauterize/inferno, ele drain, engulfing, embers, 3x charged whip, leap as finisher.
I'm very curious if anyone played for a long time with imperial mag chars, please share your experiense, its very appreciated. Thanks.
