I'm an arcane warrior and currently whooping ass. I usually whip out a few damaging or slowly draining spells out then go all out with my sword. So what would be the best "ultimate armor" for the arcane warrior? I currently have Alistair with the Warden Commander set (since I bought the warden base) and me with the Juggernaut armor. The Juggernaut armor takes ALOT of stamina. Almost 90% incumbered I am. But since I am an arcane warrior it doesn't matter since I don't use a lick of stamina for my spells. So to me that's the perfect set, as it would be too draining on a warrior.
Any other opinions on what I should wear? So for I don't thing anything beats the juggernaut set.

My arcane warrior uses Varathorns armor with the boots and gloves of diligence. The armor is an option for the dalish vendor Varathorn to craft when you bring him Ironbark during the dalish quest. The best armor is arguably the dragonbone set that Wade makes for you when you bring him a dragonscale( not a drakescale) All the sets he makes are pretty decent. You get a dragonscale if you bang the gong and defeat the high dragon during the urn of sacred ashes quest. With these sets your fatigue is very low or non existent. Perfect for an arcane warrior. I use top siders sword with Branka's shield and/or the Magister lords staff.

The reapers vestments are good, they add no additional fatigue, the boots that add 10% dodge are nice (forgot name). And some gloves that add to your favorite elemantal damage, crit chance, or elven for the armor boost.
If you arent planning on maximizing casting as much the legion set is nice.
Or to really increase stamina go warden boots/the armor the elf makes (valdereth??)/fade wall/executioner helm for a 125 pt boost to stamina(works for magic). Maximize by ditching the fade wall and 2handing the chasind great maul for total 175 stamina boost, although 2h weapons are slow (but pack a wallop and kinda looks cool for a mage to have a big ol hammer).
