Endless Infinite Archive Solo Build Setup

The Build is designed to offer a combination of defense, survivability and fire damage! The Magicka Dragonknight is the perfect Class for the Build, since it can offer all three with skills, Ultimates and Archive upgrades. The False God’s Devotion is an excellent set that will reduce the cost of your abilities and assist with speed and sustain. For a No Trial Gear Setup you can replace it with Order’s Wrath. Gaze of Sithis is a strong defensive Mythic Set that can help you survive stronger enemies. You can replace it with Ring of the Pale order for better heals. Another Set you can use is the Iceheart Monster Set, for its shield!
