We have two setups here. Setup one is more damage and uses a crafted set while setup two is the more Tanky build with an additional group buff but less DPS.
Firstly we use Powerful Assault. The reason why is because this is a Tank set already so it’s likely you already have these pieces of gear. It’s a decent set because it gives us Max Health, Max Stamina, Weapon Damage and with one of our skills, we’ll get an additional Weapon Damage proc for both ourselves and our group.
The next set you’ll use is either Order’s Wrath which is a crafted set that will provide us with some increased damage or if you are looking to provide better group support and while sacrificing some person damage then you can use Crimson Oath’s Rive.
We are not using a Monster Set for this build because we use a Mythic item instead. This means you can use any 1 piece of gear that you like. I have gone with Valkyn Skoria since we’ll be missing some penetration and therefore doing less DPS.
Finally we’re using the Oakensoul Ring. This is a strong Mythic item that will give us 10 Major Buffs and 3 Minor Buffs but means we can only use one bar. That is no problem for this build, since it increases the DPS compared to past versions by 10-20k DPS.
In this build we use One Heavy on the Chest, one Light Armor piece and the rest in Medium. You could also use Heavy Legs and Helmet if you want to go Tankier but this will sacrifice damage.
Because we are using a lot of Medium Armor, we already have quite low Block Cost so we use Divines on all the gear with Prismatic Defence enchants this is so we can maximise our Magicka and Health without sacrificing any Stamina. The Shield is Sturdy just to bring our Block Cost down to a similar amount that we would have from going full Sturdy in a Heavy Armor setup.
The Jewellery Traits are Infused with Weapon Damage to push our damage higher. One of these could be sacrificed for a Magicka Recovery if you have trouble sustain in group content.
The One Handed Weapon we use is Sharpened with a Weapon Damage enchant.
