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!
Stamina Necromancers have been an absolute plague (pun intended) in PvP for a couple of patches now, and so I figured it was time to bring mine out of retirement! The class has absolutely insane healing, damage, tankiness, sustain… basically everything you could want out of a PvP build. With Greymoor we needed to bake a little bit more tankiness into the setup, but because StamCro has so much innate tankiness to begin with, we were able to conserve most of our damage from previous patches!
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.

Selene: Selene adds a free-damage proc to the build that deals massive AoE damage when we deal direct melee martial damage, which we do with much of our kit. This proc further augments our already very potent offensive burst combo, making it very hard for opponents to survive our burst damage!
Spriggan’s Thorns: This set gives us a big boost to our penetration, making our burst chunk down the HP of even the tankiest targets!
Ancient Dragonguard: With how high damage is in PvP, the biggest concern in my opinion when making a build to fight outnumbered is being able to recover when being put on the back foot. To help with this issue, we use Ancient Dragonguard, a set that’s designed perfectly for solving this problem. We get a nice damage boost when our health is high and we want to be offensive, but we get a boost to our resistances when our health is low and our heals need protection.
Puncturing Remedy: Since Spriggan’s only needs to be front-barred and we use Puncture on the build, we are able to utilize the Master’s SnB well! This gives us a heal and extra resistances when we use puncture, promoting good debuff maintenance and giving us some nice defensive bonuses when we reduce the resistances of our opponent! If you dont have this set, you can simply use Death’s Wind for a flat boost to resistances.
Front Bar – Two Handed: Dizzying Swing, Blighted Blastbones, Mortal Coil, Executioner, Rally, Dawnbreaker of Smiting
Back Bar – 1h & Shield: Pierce Armor, Resolving Vigor, Spirit Guardian, Summoner’s Armor, Shuffle, Temporal Guard
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 doesnt have any use to us either on this setup since I dont plan on using any of the skills from it.
The list below showcases the order in which champion 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 CP bar.

Tips & Misc.
- Maintain your buffs & debuffs at all times to maximize the tankiness, sustain and damage that the build has to offer
- When you’re taking a lot of pressure and your Mortal Coil cannot out heal it, refresh your Rally. If you’re still taking a lot of pressure, swap to your back bar and block, kite towards LOS, purge yourself with Hexproof, and heal yourself back up with Resolving Vigor!
- This build has a very straightforward and VERY potent burst combo. Use Blastbones, then Dizzying Swing, and then DBoS. Use Executioner to finish off your target if this combo doesnt kill them.
