I start by saying that the gear update in Flame of Ambition and the sets to be used for the magicka DD have generally remained unchanged.
The substantial change is the use of the gear head and shoulder, which can now be used "light" to take advantage of all the armor bonuses and maybe in the future use them as well for combinations with special weapons/gear (which is already the case for veteran arenas), however in my opinion exploiting the undaunted mettle is still possible.


SIRORIA SETUP - Head Heavy, Shoulder medium for the undaunted mettle, otherwise all light gear.

  • Head - Zaan set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Shoulder - Zaan set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Chest - Siroria set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Hands - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Belt - Siroria set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Legs - Siroria set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Shoes - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Necklace- Mother's Sorrow set - Infused/Bloodthirsty Trait - Spell dmg Enchant
  • Rings - Mother's Sorrow - Infused/Bloodthirsty Trait - Spell dmg Enchant
  • Fire Staff - Siroria set - Precise Trait - Fire dmg/Absorb Magicka Enchant
  • Fire Staff - Maelstrom - Infused Trait - Spell dmg Enchant

-First bar enchant obviously depend on your ability to support magicka during rotation
-Traits on jewerly can depend on the choice of race, for example as Breton you could even try to use 2 infused in the rings and 1 bloodthirsty in the necklace, most of the dps you can obtain with bloodthirsty anyway;
-In order not to lose the spell critical in the swap of the weapon, the Mother's Sorrow set is used as a body set and the Siroria (for static fight) or Spell Strategist, Burning Spellweave as a front set.


-Still using this set combination is 100% valid in fact the famous Liko did most of its tests with this build.
p.s. it is not recommended for NB Magicka.


MEDUSA SETUP - Head Heavy, Shoulder medium for the undaunted mettle, otherwise all light gear.

  • Head - Zaan set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Shoulder - Zaan set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Chest - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Hands - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Belt - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Legs - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Shoes - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Necklace- Medusa set - Infused/Bloodthirsty Trait - Spell dmg Enchant
  • Rings - Medusa set - Infused/Bloodthirsty Trait - Spell dmg Enchant
  • Fire Staff - Medusa set - Precise Trait - Fire dmg/Absorb Magicka Enchant
  • Fire Staff - Maelstrom - Infused Trait - Spell dmg Enchant

-This is the combination of sets that Alcast currently uses with all its magicka DDs, the biggest problem is due to the lack of buff for the dmg spell -> so a set to test with the dummy, I'll let you know.

MECHANICAL ACUITY SETUP - Head Heavy, Shoulder medium for the undaunted mettle, otherwise all light gear.

  • Head - Zaan set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Shoulder - Zaan set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Chest - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Hands - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Belt - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Legs - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Shoes - Mother's Sorrow - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Necklace- Mechanical Acuity - Infused/Bloodthirsty Trait - Spell dmg Enchant
  • Rings - Mechanical Acuity - Infused/Bloodthirsty Trait - Spell dmg Enchant
  • Fire Staff - Mechanical Acuity - Precise Trait - Fire dmg/Absorb Magicka Enchant
  • Fire Staff - Maelstrom - Infused Trait - Spell dmg Enchant

-Tests have been done with this build with the Templar and the NB, and it seems to work, let's say that it can be a valid alternative to the medusa set to get + spell dmg.

Open in a new window
Siroria - Cloudrest trial
Mother's Sorrow - zone set Deshaan

Kjalnar's Nightmare - vet Unhallowed Grave
Ilambris - vet Crypts of Hearts
Nerien'eth - vet Crypts of Hearths 2
Maw of Infernal - vet Banished Cells 2

-The Valkyn Skoria is no longer a good set for the magicka DDs, I left it here because maybe there will be an update in the future.

ALTERNATIVE SET:
BODY SET:
Open in a new window
False God's Devotion - trial Sunspire
Julianos - craft set Wrothgar

Spinner - zone set Malabal Tor

If you like using the Force Pulse skill, for example for all those who do not use Psijic Order skills, you can use:
Scathing Mage - dungeon Imperial City Prison

STARTER SET 160 CPs - EXAMPLE - Head Heavy, Shoulder medium. the rest all light gear

  • Head - Grothdarr set - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant

-If you don't want to spend gold to get the craft sets, you just need to farm the dungeons to get sets for your role, so you can reach an adequate dps for normal trials -> 15-20k dps

ARENA SETUP - Head Medium, Shoulder Heavy for the undaunted mettle, otherwise all light gear

  • Head - Swarm Mother - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant
  • Shoulder - Mother's Sorrow/Medusa - Divine Trait - Magicka Enchant

  • Lightning Staff - Mother's Sorrow/Medusa - Precise Trait - Flame dmg Enchant
  • Inferno Staff - Maelstrom/any - Infused Trait - Spell dmg Enchant

-With Medusa set you can use medium head for the undaunted mettle passive;
-If you don't have the False God set, you can use the Crafty Alfiq set to get more magicka, or the Bright-Throat's Boast set
