Help me with a vma build(MagSorc)

what build would be recommended for a mag sorc on vma im thinking of 5 Twice Born on my body all light, shoulder and helm be a monster set( Molag,Valkyn, Engine, or Nerien im not sure which one to use) and for weapons im not sure what to use all i know is that i want both bars to be staff(preferred) and jewelry being 3 willpower Arcane my race is a high elf and also what should my skills bars be.
Love being an Argonian Tank and Khajiit DPS

    With the current gear set up you mentioned your very limited so it would have to be
    5 TBS
    3 willpower (I prefer IA personally)
    2 Kena
    1 destro (dead set)
    1 resto (dead set and here because you wanted 2 staffs)
    I would advice going 5-1-1 for undaunted passives (5 light) to give extra stat boost,

    Baring in mind your duel staff i would set the bars up like-
    Bound aegis, crystal frag, force pulse/crushing shock(depending on morph you use) , hardened ward, inner light- shooting star

    Bound aegis, crit surge, healing ward, mages wrath, inner light- overload

    Bound aegis, crit surge, liquid lightening, hardened ward, inner light

    I'm not saying this is the best build
    For maelstrom and certainly could be tweaked however I believe this if a good starting place for people just starting out in maelstrom,

    Personally I don't use a resto anymore and I duel
    Wield back bar with only crit surge as a heal
    Good luck!

    Are you open to running dual destro? If so there are a lot of really solid builds out there for you.

    My current mSorc is running 5 TBS, 5 Elegant (on DW bar), 2 Nerieneth, and a sharpened inferno on front bat.

    As a sorc you'll definitely want either Nerieneth or Kena for your monster set. Personally I prefer Nerieneth for the lack of resource drain and extra health. You'll want all divines armor, and sharpened weapons.

    If you do decide on dual destro I advise using 1 inferno, 1 lightning.

    Inferno (Main): aegis, inner light, hardened ward, crushing shock (interrupt is too valuable on vma), c frags, meteor.

    Lightning (Back): aegis, harness magicka, crit surge, elemental blockade, liquid lightning, overload

    Overload: aegis, inner light, hardened ward, endless fury/wrath, dark exchange

    Hard part about this setup is the timing for the dots, but you should be able to keep up quite a bit of damage with this. Also, since your using TBS (with shadow and theif presumably) I would trade mages fury for rearming trap. It's more challenging to use, but it's a substantial increase in damage. Either way, this setup is pretty balanced for resource sustain, survivability, and damage, and should make maelstrom more manageable.
