Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Stamina Necromancer DPS PvP Build, Plague, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for PvP of all kinds: Cyrodiil, Dueling, Imperial City and Battlegrounds. This build can be played in both CP and no-CP pvp as well!

This build focuses primarily on being an unkillable tank that can still delete most people with a single combo. This build has been viable for several patches now, and this was the same build I used for my Advanced Dizzying Swing Combo Guide video. I highly suggest checking out the video, it has a lot of useful information this build utilizes to maximize its 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.

Gear Explanation

The focus of the build is to catch your opponent off guard with an unexpected burst combo. With that being said, clever alchemist, essence thief and balorgh all synergize very well together to help you secure the kill without having to apply much sustained pressure in the fight. The less your opponent is aware of your damage potentials, the easier it is to catch them off guard so try to focus on refreshing and keeping your defensive abilities. Before going in for the burst combo, I like to make sure the duration left on the defensive abilities have at least 80% duration left so that I can prolong the window in case the opponent survives the wombo combo and I have to use my execute a few more times. I also recommend refreshing the major/minor fracture right before the burst, and making sure to medium weave as the Vateshran 2h proc is very important.


All points into stamina.

Vampire vs. WW vs. Mortal

For this build we are playing as a mortal. Werewolf doesnt have much use to use to the build, and Vampirism doesn’t have any use to us either on this setup since stamcro is tanky enough (making undeath unnecessary and not worth the sustain hit).

Champion Points

Tips & Misc.

  1. Download the addon called “Cooldowns” to help track the essence thief.
  2. Download S’rendarr and blacklist every debuff except for Off-balance and Major Fracture.
  3. Don’t spam d swing, properly weave between d swing using light,medium or heavy attacks and try to maintain blast bones at all cost.
  4. Try to pick up all the essence thief procs unless you physically can’t due to the rune parkouring up a tree, or you have 20 people chasing you. Making your decision on the appropriate time to pick up these runes will come with practice. Also, before going for the full wombo combo, make sure you have a high duration remaining on the essence thief buff.
  5. Practice the combos shown in the video linked in the introduction. Don’t forget about how important it is to maintain buffs and line up the vateshran 2h proc, clever alchemist, essence thief and balogh all together. Sometimes you will come across a tankier folk and you might have to build a bit more ultimate before attempting to blow someone up with a solid amount of balorgh proc.
