Daggers on magicka

Hey everyone!

I am curious, with so many builds now incorporating daggers into magicka builds, does it even make sense to be magicka or does stam become the new norm. From a few videos that I watched, it was explained that not picking 2 precise daggers is a big dps loss.

Thanks!

    Well, the main reason why daggers become stronger is because of the changes to the "twin balde and blunt" passive. On the live server this passive increases just your weapon crit chance by 5% for each dagger equipped. On the pts it inceases your both your weapon crit chance and your spell crit chance by 3.7% for each dagger.
    So no, the buff that daggers got for magicka builds doesn't help stamina builds at all.

    that's true. also my question is more about range and set selection playstyles. Perhaps i'm being an idiot but i find that Stam DPS have a wider veriety of stam sets that allow for better mobility and higher dps potential. If sotting daggers will put all mag in the same range of the boss as stam, wouldn't it make more sense to just have people roll stam?

    Obvious answer that comes to mind is that some fights require people to be at range, but i feel that's where bow / bow setup would come in. Just saw a warden bow bow build on Youtube parsing 106k.

    Templar was actually fun with dual wield imo
    Raising floors and lower ceilings by zos standards has created an iron maiden.
    No matter how well you played,when the game is over,the king and pawn go back in the same box.
    Be careful what you ask for from zo$, you always get punished.

    Yep it’s a full inversion. Stam now parses highest with bow/bow, while Magicka are forced into melee :D
