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.

Kjalnar’s Nightmare: Gives the build a CC via the monster set, and a massive damage proc when the set is unable to stun!
Crafty Alfiq: Gives a huge boost to our magicka pool, giving us a ton more damage and more magicka to work with to cast our skills!
New Moon Acolyte: This set is one of the strongest offensive sets in the game for PvP. This huge amount of damage does come with a drawback though in the form of a 5% cost increase to our skills.
Potentates: One of the best back-bar defensive sets in the game. Being able to get 5% damage mitigation against players is an extremely beneficial thing to have, especially in a high-damage meta like what we are seeing with Greymoor.
All points into Magicka.
Main Bar – Destruction Staff: Elemental Drain, Inner Light, Destructive Clench, Stalking Blastbones, Ricochet Skulls, Glacial Colossus
Back Bar – Restoration Staff: Summoner’s Armor, Necrotic Potency, Spirit Guardian, Resistant Flesh, Degeneration, 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, Combat Prayer, and Healing Ward in your restoration staff skill tree!
Vampire vs. Mortal
For this patch, I am playing as a mortal. Neither vampire or werewolf give this build anything it needs.

Resource Management & Rotation
The only real “rotation” is making sure you keep your buffs up (Degen for major sorcery, Summoner’s Armor for Major Resolve, ele drain for breach and magicka steal) as well as keeping up your Spirit Guardian for heals and damage mitigation. Use Necrotic Potency as much as possible for a nice chunk of ultimate. For your combo, try to land your Clench, Blastbones, Colossus, and optimally your 3rd Skull cast and Nightmare proc all at once. This is ideal however, but primarily make sure you keep up your buffs and debuffs, weave your light attacks, and land your combo. Even without your ult being available, Nightmare going off, or it being the 3rd skull, you’ll get some solid kills. That’s just the most optimal (and satisfying) combo.
