Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Werewolf vMA Build PvE, Berserker, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for completing Veteran Maelstrom as easily as possible! Werewolves are incredibly strong for vMA, and this build is designed for a safe playthrough! Even though it’s tanky and has a ton of healing, it does NOT lack in the damage department! You will be taking things down incredibly quickly, making things that much easier. Best part about this build? Since it’s a werewolf build, it can be used on any class.

Gear Set Explanation

Mighty Chudan: Amazing monster set for a werewolf build. Since we cant activate a major resistance buff inside of werewolf form, using Chudan allows us to cap our resists by giving us the major resistance buffs passively, making us as tanky as possible (resistance wise) in vMA!

Shacklebreaker: Really good set for werewolves due to the amazing stat spread it offers. The boost to our stamina and weapon damage is of course welcomed, but having that extra magicka pool allows us to heal ourselves more frequently. This can be extremely crucial in certain points during the arena – you never want to not have enough resources for your heal!

Vengeance Lech: Amazing set for resource sustain in vMA – this just keeps all your pools topped off as you kill everything. I know some people wonder why I use this on a werewolf since the primary damage is light attacks, but I like to weave in Howl of Agony when I need to burst something, so that extra sustain is welcome!

Agility: The two piece set bonus for this weapon got buffed in Dragonhold and it makes it a strong and easy to acquire set to act as a filler for when we have a 3-piece jewelry set bonus.


All points into Stamina.


Brutal Pounce Hircine's Rage Deafening Roar Howl of Agony Claws of Life Werewolf Berserker

Werewolf Form: Brutal Pounce, Hircine’s Rage, Deafening Roar, Howl of Agony, Claws of Life, Werewolf Berserker

Note: Make sure to put werewolf form on your build’s primary bar. In terms of class skills, it’s entirely up to you what you choose. Theoretically, you should never need them, since you can maintain werewolf through the entirety of vMA!

Resource Management & Rotation

Rotation for werewolf is incredibly simple: use your fear, howl of agony, and light attack to your heart’s content. You can also weave Light Attack > Howl of Agony when you need to burst something down quickly. Use feral pounce to get to mobs in a hurry, and use your heal as needed. Very, very straightforward.
