And also make a V14 version...

Why on earth does the Stygian set give maximum stamina? The set should remove the current 3 piece bonus of Max Stamina. The set should do the following:

(2 items) Adds Spell Damage
(3 items) - Take your pick of (Max Magicka, Magicka Regen, Spell Critical, or even additional spell damage)
(4 items) Adds Max Magicka
(5 items) Stygian: While Sneaking or invisible, spells do an additional 20% damage.

    Question about the set: is sneaking only considered stealthed or could you be crouched, still discovered and still get the bonus?

    I do this too, but I would rather be rolling a 5 piece set of light Stygian with the 3 piece bonuses fixed. It would be more beneficial than my current 5 piece Magnus’ Gift...

    And on a Hybrid Dual Wield Nightblade who could use Shadow Cloak to activate the 5 piece bonus, it was stellar.

    Now it just sits on my stash alt.

    Because it existed prior to 1.6 when it was just about the best set for a NB

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    With the removal of soft caps also came the removal of hybrids. There is not a single set for Magicka Melee users

    DING! DING! DING!

    This is the answer. There are so many sets that mix stamina and magicka attributes. Almost all of these are useless now.

    Thanks to the health attribute nerf and enchantement nerf, Hybrid builds are dead. You simply cannot get enough resources to get decent damage out of two resource pools. You have to stack one to be competitive.

    I used to run 2H sorc with light armor and rely on two weapon damage enchants for weapon damage but NOPE! enchants are nerfed and a weapon damage enchant gives HALF or less of what a set bonus would give you.

    Where it really hurts is the crafted sets. So many crafting sets are useless now. Here are a few examples.
    • Torug's Pact Why would you want spell and weapon damage anymore?
    • Night Mother This one is a double nerf. Not only are crit set's useless now but trying to stack weapon crit AND spell crit is ludicrous.

    Crafted sets should let you pick the 2,3, and 4 piece bonuses. What makes a set unique is the 5 piece anyway. That way crafting would actually be useful.

    My buddy has been complaining about crafting being useless as well. That would be interesting to allow crafters to set the bonuses, with some restraints (like you can't just do spell damage fro 2, 3, and 4).
