Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Stamina Dragonknight Build PvE, Noxious, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for all content – general PvE, vDungeons, vTrials and Maelstrom Arena. The Stamina Dragonknight is a really good introduction class for beginners and people looking to move into end-game as it’s easy to play and the rotation is easy to follow. Stamina Dragonknights are very flexible, you can experiment with different gear sets, abilities and bar setups without losing a ton of DPS as long as you follow the foundations that we’re building upon.

Other Important Info

Buff Food

Braised Rabbit with Spring Vegetables (Max Health & Stamina)
Redguard and Bosmer can comfortably sustain the rotations I provide whilst using bi-stat food.

Artaeum Takeaway Broth / Dubious Camoran Throne (Max Stat and Recovery)
If you are having trouble sustaining due to your group support, race and champion points go with this food instead.
Races with no inherent stamina sustain such as Orc, Khajiit and Dark Elf should run this food.

Mundus

Shadow – Increases Critical Chance

Race

  1. Orc
  2. Khajiit / Dark Elf
  3. Redguard / Bosmer

Potions/Poisons

Potion: Weapon Power Potions (Weapon Damage, Weapon Critical and Stamina.)
Requires Blessed Thistle, Dragonthorn and Wormwood to create.

Poison: Damage Health Poisons IX
Requires Nightshade, Nirnroot and Fleshfly Larva to create.

Passives

  • Ardent Flame – ALL
  • Draconic Power – ALL
  • Earthen Heart – ALL
  • Dual Wield – ALL
  • Bow – ALL
  • Medium Armour – ALL
  • Heavy Armor – ALL
  • Fighters Guild – Intimidating Presence, Slayer, Banish the Wicked, Skilled Tracker
  • Undaunted – ALL
  • Racial – ALL
  • Alchemy – Medicinal Use

Resource Management & Rotation

  • Barbed Trap, BS Flames of Oblivion, Deadly Cloak, Rending Slashes, BS Noxious Breath, Venom Claw, Stone Giant x6, BS Deadly Cloak, Rending Slash
  • Prioritize keeping 100% uptime on Stone Giant. This skill is going to increase every single damage input on the target. This will also help boost your group’s damage as well. 
  • Stone Giant will be your spammable until 75%, from here you will only activate it to keep uptime on Stagger. Under 75% use Shrouded Dagger.
  • Do not use Molten Whip, this skill is slotted puring for Seething Fury.
  • Aim for 100% uptime on Barbed Trap, this will ensure we are getting the most out of our critical strikes.
  • Because we are using the BRP DW we need to make sure we have a high uptime on Deadly Cloak.
  • Look to cast your ultimate on cooldown during each boss fight, unless you should be saving your ult, cast it!
  • Activate your potions on cooldown, this will ensure you have zero sustain issues, and you will have high uptimes on your buffs!
