Champion points allocationsWant to know the latest & proper Champion Points allocation for all of the hardest PvE content? Want to know the general mitigation allocations for PvP? Look below! Everything will always be up to date! Last Updated: Stonethorn/Update 27
You'll need 5850 additional Penetration with all debuffs in the context of Trials. The Update 27 change to how Alkosh functions in conjunction with damage modifiers means that the uptime of Alkosh's Linebreaker debuff is even more critical and will have an effect on your weapon traits or Champion Points allocation group by group.
Courtesy of the Tank Club, Alkosh Blue Champion Point allocations for Magicka & Stamina DPS compositions have been introduced.
Traits, the usage of Malacath's Band of Brutality and CP allocation can vary tank to tank depending on how far they want to go in terms of penetration for both trash and boss fights such as forsaking a source of Minor Breach for Magicka DPS or even retaining/taking on sources of penetration such as Minor Fracture and Sorcerer's Crystal Weapon for Stamina DPS.
Note that pre-Stonethorn Alkosh is in effect on the Raid Dummy meaning that you will still run 9-10 Spell Erosion on Magicka and ~56 Piercing on Stamina (assuming you do Nirnhoned/Sharpened just for dummy testing as a non-Necro Trial setup will mean you lose DPS now on the dummy), Stamina Necromancers will have ~30 points into Piercing with 1x Sharpened, ~55 without.
In optimized groups, DPS classes will run 0 points into Spell Erosion/Piercing. Stam DPS will rely on penetration sets such as New Moon Acolyte and Master's Two Hander for trash.
