Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Stamina Dragonknight DPS PvP Build, Dragonborn, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for PvP of all kinds: battlegrounds, Cyrodiil, dueling, and Imperial City. This build can be played in both CP and no-CP pvp!

The previous iteration of this build was unfortunately killed with Dragonhold with the removal of the stun from Dizzying Swing, so we are going back to a similar setup to what we ran during the Elsweyr patch. If you liked my old StamDen Nature’s Wrath build, than you’ll love the updated version of this build because it uses the exact same gear loadout, and honestly I think it will work better on StamDK than it did on the Warden. This build focuses on high ultimate generation as well as high weapon damage while in heavy armor. This is a recipe for success for stamDK, giving us a ton of damage, healing, tankiness and sustain. This build is extremely well rounded and strong in every area in my opinion with the exception of movement. This build is on the slower side, so your positioning in certain fights is going to be very important to make sure you’re not caught out in a place you dont want to be.

Overall, this build is incredibly well rounded, really fun, and I recommend giving it a try on your stamina dragonknight!

Keep in mind that PvP builds are very personal. This is what worked for ME. If you don’t like something about it, change it to fit your playstyle.

Gear Choices

Clever Alchemist: This set is perfect for a back bar set on a burst build. You get an insane amount of weapon damage when you drink your potion on your back bar; combined with Fury you can hit really high weapon damage numbers and absolutely crush your opponents with your ultimate combo!

Warrior’s Fury: This set got a change in the Scalebreaker update that not only made it more consistent, but viable in no-CP. This set gives a solid amount of weapon damage, and we can proc it with relative ease since this is a brawling focused build.

Blood Spawn: Amazing all-around set; gives us stamina recovery, resistance and ultimate generation. Not much more we can ask for from our monster set! In my opinion it is the best monster set for StamDK.

Disciplined Slash: Works as a great front bar set since we have clever alchemist on our back bar. This set allows us to generate ultimate incredibly quickly while executing our opponents, allowing us to get to our burst much faster!

Tips & Misc.

  • Maintain your buffs and debuffs at all times to maximize the amount of damage, tankiness and healing the build has to offer.
  • Offensively, your goal is to throw up all your DOTs, use Reverberating Bash into Take Flight, and executioner if they arent already dead.
  • Try to use Fragmented Shield at least every 20 seconds to keep minor brutality up.
  • Use Fragmented Shield before you use Resolving Vigor/Rally to buff the entire heal by 25% with Major Mending.
