Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Magicka Dragonknight Healer Build PvP, Reanimator, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for PvP of all kinds: battlegrounds, Cyrodiil, and Imperial City. This build can be played in both CP and no-CP pvp without any changes to the build!

Necromancers make fantastic healers for PvP! They’re very tanky, bring tons of utility, and the unique ability to instantly combat resurrect several allies, allowing your group to quickly recover from any deaths it may suffer and turn the tide of battle back in your favor! This build focuses on bringing out the strengths of the necromancer healing kit, while also bringing the utility for a large raid group via its gear sets.

Gear Choices

Earthgore: This monster set is incredibly powerful, and the healing proc from this can be the difference between living or dying. This is strong for not only keeping yourself alive, but keeping groups of players alive as well. It received a pretty hefty nerf in Elsweyr, but the set is still absolutely worth using for PvP. It’ll save the person with the lowest HP in the AoE at each tick, so it can save multiple people from certain death over its duration.

Transmutation: Gives a massive amount of critical resistance by healing someone with a HoT, which helps prevent sudden influxes of damage from being put on yourself and others. If someone in your group is already running this, Wizard’s Riposte is another option.

Shacklebreaker: Helps give us strong resource pools as well as sustain them. This is one of my personal favorite sets because of how well balanced of a stat spread it gives your character, and it helps round out the stat pools of this build incredibly well.

Attributes

All points into Magicka.

Front bar – Restoration Staff: Healing Springs, Radiating Regeneration, Resistant Flesh, Renewing Undeath, Braided Tether, Glacial Colossus

Vampire vs. Werewolf vs. Mortal

For this build we are going to be playing as a Mortal. Unfortunately with the changes to vampirism in Greymoor, I feel our sustain as a healer takes too much of a hit running mist form.

Other Important Info

  2. Argonian – Great race for a healer in PvP. You get bonus magicka, bonus health, bonus healing and an absolutely amazing form of sustain from their potion passive.

All class passives, all one hand and shield passives, all restoration staff passives, all light armor passives, all medium armor passives, all heavy armor passives, all undaunted passives, all assault passives, all support passives, all racial passives, alchemy (medicinal use).

Tips & Misc.

  • You want to apply Healing Springs and Radiating Regeneration onto your allies, as well as maintaining Braided Tether, to maximize your HoTs on your teammates. After that, you’ll primarily be using Resistant Flesh for a burst heal and Renewing Undeath whenever you want to purge. Use Energy Orb whenever your group needs resources restored!
  • Maintain your personal buffs and debuffs to maximize the build’s tankiness and healing capability.
  • Use Empowering Grasp on groups of enemies to snare and stun them, grant your allies empower and make your mender stronger!
  • Animate Blastbones is your primary defensive ult for when teammates go down, while Glacial Colossus is going to be your primary offensive ult. Use whichever ult is required in each situation.
