Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Stamina Sorcerer Build PvP, Strain, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is mostly meant for open world, small group play, as well as battlegrounds.

This is a highly mobile build with tons of sustained pressure and snares. We get our tankiness from heavy armor, and can pump out some strong AoE burst with Dawnbreaker and Balorgh! Get ready to strain your opponents with this fun stamina sorcerer PvP build!

Vampire vs. Werewolf vs. Mortal

For this build I play as a mortal.  The benefits or playing as a vampire as a werewolf do not out-weigh the drawbacks for this build.
