Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Magicka Dragonknight Healer Build PvP, Cinderflame, 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 without any changes to the build!

While dragonknight’s arent the most meta healing class, they can still offer a ton to a PvP raid group! This build focuses around bringing the most out of the dragonknight kit for PvP healing, while bringing the utility for a large raid group via its gear sets.

Gear Choices

Earthgore: This monster set is incredibly powerful, and the healing proc from this can be the difference between living or dying. This is strong for not only keeping yourself alive, but keeping groups of players alive as well. It received a pretty hefty nerf in Elsweyr, but the set is still absolutely worth using for PvP. It’ll save the person with the lowest HP in the AoE at each tick, so it can save multiple people from certain death over its duration.

Transmutation: Gives a massive amount of critical resistance by healing someone with a HoT, which helps prevent sudden influxes of damage from being put on yourself and others. If someone in your group is already running this, Wizard’s Riposte is another option.

Shacklebreaker: Helps give us strong resource pools as well as sustain them. This is one of my personal favorite sets because of how well balanced of a stat spread it gives your character, and it helps round out the stat pools of this build incredibly well.


All points into Magicka.

Vampire vs. Werewolf vs. Mortal

For this build we are going to be playing as a Mortal. Unfortunately with the changes to vampirism in Greymoor, I feel our sustain as a healer takes too much of a hit running mist form.

Other Important Info

Buff Food

Bewitched Sugar Skulls – Max Health, Magicka and Stamina


Atronach – Increased Magicka Recovery


  1. Breton – Grants a TON of magicka sustain and a lot of extra tankiness. They’re a fantastic race choice for all magicka units in PvP.
  2. Argonian – Great race for a healer in PvP. You get bonus magicka, bonus health, bonus healing and an absolutely amazing form of sustain from their potion passive.


Essence of Health (Restore Magicka, Health and Stamina)
(Bugloss, Columbine and Mountain Flower)


All class passives, all one hand and shield passives, all restoration staff passives, light armor (recovery, evocation, spell warding), medium armor (dexterity, wind walker, improved sneak, athletics), all heavy armor passives, all undaunted passives, all assault passives, all support passives, all racial passives, alchemy (medicinal use).

Tips & Misc.

  • You want to apply Healing Springs and Radiating Regeneration onto your allies to maximize your HoTs on your teammates. After that, you’ll primarily be using Obsidian Shard should anyone get bursted. Also, use Fragmented Shield when you want your heals to get powered up by Major Mending!
  • Maintain Cauterize on yourself at all times so it can always heal your lowest health ally ever time it procs.
  • Barrier is your primary defensive ult, while Aggressive Horn is going to be your primary offensive ult. Use whichever ult is required in each situation.
