Love it or hate it, Oakensoul is out there and we're seeing some "interesting" effects. I play almost exclusively in Cyrodiil and have noticed that damage is high, ultimate regen is flowing like wine, and I can't kill MagDKs or StamSorcs to save my life, haha. Well if I can't beat em, join em! Now that I have the ring, I'd love to get feedback from solid PvPers about what a great one-bar Oakensoul build might look like for a Magicka Templar in this new meta.
Sets. I used to run a damage set (e.g., War Maiden) and something defensive (e.g., Pariah) or regen-focused (e.g., Wretched Vitality), but I'm not sure those are cutting it anymore. Also, the juicy buffs on Oakensoul have negated certain set benefits (e.g., Olorime) and perhaps made critical chance/dmg more attractive too (e.g., Order's Wrath or Rallying Cry). Lastly, we need to squeeze it all on one bar; I'm having trouble getting damage, defense, and sustain properly balanced. So what sets have you found most effective to pair with Oaken?
Skills. There's a few skills that are probably still staples, but I have been intrigued by what I see some people doing with their one bar. I've been running the following with moderate success: Puncturing Sweeps; Purifying Light; Toppling Charge; Living Dark; Honor the Dead; Flawless Dawnbreaker (ULT). What I feel is lacking is an evasive skill and a cleanse. For example, it would be nice to have Extended Ritual, but I just don't know what could be replaced. So what MagPlar skills have you found most effective to pair with Oaken?
If you have anything else to add, please do! Cheers!
