Magicka DK in Heavy + shield PvP Questions

Hi,

I'm preparing a magicka DK for pvp and I'm pretending to use in both bars one hand and shield, and I need some help with the traits and enchants/ poisons. I have really no idea what I should use with the news changes they did.

Armor I think I will use Sun + Shacklebreaker + Skoria. With all impenetrable since I will not relay in shields.

    Not a very good magdk PvP player, but in nocp I also used heavy with double s&b - heavy seducer +lich+skoria+willpower s&b. If you use mist - change lich for warlock

    P.S. it us useless to use shields on heavy armor as shields have 0 resistance

    No sustain. Shackle+DR is your bread and butter. Damage from shackle and skoria. Sustain from desert rose. Survivability from heavy.

    If you want to go your build. Try a couple of tri glyphs and witchmothers brew, or the slightly better clockwork citrus fillet.

    But what about traits and enchants or poisons?

    Personally I like running 3 Infused on my Head, Body, Legs for tri-glyphs, then 4 Impen on the small bits.

    Weapon trait wise, honestly it is personal preference. Nirnhoned is probably the best all around trait, but sharpened and precise are just as good in most cases

    As for enchants, on weapons, Berserker is strong, as is Flame damage. I've ran Infused Oblivion to pretty good effect as well.

    Poisons are for scumbags.

    You will need quite a few pieces sturdy. 3 on the body and 1 on each sheild.

    Sun Shackle Skoria is a great combo. I try different gear all the time but I keep coming back to that armor combo in 5 light with apprentice mundus and witchmothers; 1 block cost reduction, 1 mag regen, 1 spell damage. All triglyphs.

    You'll need sturdy + impen traits. Sharp or nirn on your front bar weapons; back bar is less important. I wouldn't bother with poisons; it's very difficult to light attack weave consistently in pvp if you run S&B; people kite out of range easily.

    I want s&b in both... because one bar will be offensive and the other defensive. The idea is not go full light with destro staff like a Firemage, but like a tanky dps.

    It works well in light. Less so in heavy.

    Here’s a good build if your willing to use different sets. Other than that it might give you info on traits, glyphs, etc

    i don't like this build too much... he is using BSW instead SUN... but yes it has some similitudes with what i want and yes it helps me as orientation.
