At first I thought that'd be cool, but then I realized that fighter mage has no dual pierce like a real UHM (who can get away with just stacking both spell dmg types) and that set has zero pierce. He also can't take advantage of all the vitality bonuses from the set so it's pretty much a waste on him. Aura looks cool though.
