Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Magicka Necromancer build PvP, Horror, 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!

This is a non-harmony based Magcro build, with strong range, solid sustain, survivability, and plenty of damage!

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.

Main Bar – Destruction Staff: Elemental Drain, Inner Light, Race Against Time, Stalking Blastbones, Crushing Shock, Glacial Colossus

Back Bar – Restoration Staff: Summoner’s Armor, Deaden Pain, Spirit Guardian, Resistant Flesh, Hexproof, Life Giver

NOTE: When Life Giver casts the additional restoration staff skills, it can cast the morphed forms, so be sure to grab Rapid Regeneration, Blessing of Restoration, and Healing Ward in your restoration staff skill tree! Also, if you’re in no-proc cyro, swap Hexproof for RaT on your backbar, and using destructive Clench on your front bar.

Vampire vs. Mortal

For this patch, I am playing as a mortal. Neither vampire or werewolf give this build anything it needs.

Champion Points

Champion points were updated in the recent Flames of Ambition patch. The list below showcases the order in which the points should be acquired, the number of points you need to place into that perk and whether or not it needs to be slotted in the new CP bar. The Warfare CP perks increase your damage and mitigation and are the most important, the Fitness tree has some miscellaneous sustain and defensive perks and the Craft tree has crafting and non-combat bonuses. The Craft CP points are entirely customizable to however you want.

Resource Management & Rotation

Since this is a PvP build, your main “rotation” is going to be buff maintenance and getting your burst ready. Keep up Summoner’s Armor and Spirit Guardian for your major resolve, cheaper pets, a passive heal, and a passive 10% damage reduction. Keep Elemental Drain up on your target at all times to strip their major defense buff and provide you with some extra magicka recovery. Use RaT mainly to get out of snares, roots, etc and to give yourself some mobility; however it can also be very useful in our burst because of the minor force buff it gives us. If you’re in danger, stay on the backbar and cleanse with Hexproof and heal up with Resistant Flesh while maintaining your other defensive buffs and use Life Giver if you’re really in danger. Your main burst is going to be getting your Nightmare stun and then hitting them with a BB and (when available) your ult.
