With all the "talk" around the changes for each Mag class/build has anyone tested say like Magblades, and if so are things looking good or no? Myself no pts so just curious, granted whatever is tested can all change in a heartbeat but still wondering the direction things are going...

    Magblade has always been a strong pve dd and maybe the best build for vma and they got some serious buffs.

    In PvP magblades kinda suck compared to other classes. However they are getting some minor buffs this patch so that's good. Also they are buffing war maiden by a lot and it will be very very good on magblades since all of their magicka abilities deal magic damage.

    Best for vMA? No, not for me. I'm a PvP magblade main, but I mostly take my magplar into vMA. I'd probably also take a stamsorc or pet sorc before magblade or even my stam DK personally. I can't speak to what's best at a very high level of proficiency, but in terms of ease of use I find magblade surprisingly lacklustre. That's despite a bunch of favorable factors, such as healing while attacking (Swallow Soul, Sap Essence, Siphoning Attacks) having a decent ground DOT (Twisting Path) and being ranged. I go into vMA with PvE gear and PvE skills, though as a PvPer the one thing I haven't tried is Dark Cloak. Then again I'd argue that Shadowy Disguise is a useful skill in vMA. Though I don't normally slot it, you can use it to shed aggro from "Taking Aim" archers, if you get caught in a position where you can't interrupt or kill them immediately.

    A friend got 2-3k dps boost on magblade thanks to changes, which is 3% dmg? (No vamp nor stranglers) but it might be because PTS is less laggy.

    And I agree with people saying magblade is ez vMA, I don't play mine & when the update was incoming (perfected weapons) I got no death on him.
