Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Magicka Sorcerer PvE DPS Build, the Summoner, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This is, in my opinion, the best sorcerer build for getting max dps with zero trials gear nor a VMA staff.  This build has enough damage to get you into trials (including vet), the AOE to rip though all the trash in dungeons, and the survivability to carry you through any solo content such as VMA. This build can also easily hit 30k DPS on a target dummy.

NOTE: You can use a VMA staff with this build if you have it. You just want it set up exactly as I have our staff on the back bar. I have seen people using a gearing setup with IA or with Moondancer or Master Architect, and you will get better results, maybe 3-4k DPS. I personally get 32k DPS on dummies and I have sat down and trained people and helped them get their dps to better levels.

Gear Explanation

Our gear is very straightforward, 2-Piece Ilambris, 5-piece Necropotence and 4-piece Julianos. We get tons of max magicka from Necropotence, this is a staple for any pet sorc build. All our abilities scale off max magicka, so this set is very self-explanatory. Julianos is also a staple for magicka DPS builds, so it should make a lot of sense why we are using the sets we are using. 4-Piece Julianos and 2-piece Ilambris will give better DPS results almost all the time when compared to 5-piece Julianos and 1-piece Ilambris.

Ilambris is our monster set of choice. As a sorcerer, we have tons of shock damage in our kit, so it just makes sense why we use this set. One thing we need to think about however, is where to get our fire damage from. We are using an infused shock staff on our front bar, so we need to have a fire enchant there or else we won’t have the fire portion of Ilambris going.
