Comments: Alkosh is no longer needed on Boss fights in Magicka groups from the Flames of Ambition DLC. Due to the CP and Armor changes, it would not do anything for a Magicka group. Within a Stamina group it can be useful still but is likely going to be used by a Damage Dealer since the armor shred now scales with Weapon Damage.
This set was again updated with the Waking Flame patch essentially turning it into a Damage Dealer set combined with the addition of the new Crimson Oath’s Rive set being a better Tank set that is replacing it.
If needed, a Off Tank could stack some Weapon Damage to achieve a decent Alkosh armor shred for a Stamina group.
