  • This set is bind-on-equip
  • This set has Weapons of every type
  • Since both damaging Magicka abilites and healing Magicka abilites share Spell Critical, this set is both good for DPS and Healing, as ALL heals over time can crit, not only increasing your healing output, but also increasing your damage at the same time. Templars and Wardens can utilize this set better than other classes because they both have healing class abilities that scale off Magicka.
  • As of Update 15 - Horns of the Reach: 5 piece bonus increased from 1643 to 1924

      while not my primary armor set, i do enjoy wearing 5 piece mother's sorrow set with 5 piece treasure hunter set and alternate weapons the amount of damage you can put out is nice add with this being a dark elf, maybe even a templar or sorcerer with proper champion points placement and skill you can have 80% spell crit

          I stand Corrected! After 90 minutes of Grinding and filling 2 sets of bags from Dolmen loot, I received one Green Ring of Night Mother's Sorrow as the sole item. It appears that having the Treasure Hunter Passive does not help grind for this set. I received a full Purple set of Jewelry of the Night Mother and a full Blue set of the Plague Doctor.
