Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Stamina Sorcerer Build PvP, Strain, for the Elder Scrolls Online! 

The BG setup of this build is what I found to be the most fun and practical for myself during this proc meta. Of course I felt forced into using one here but it’s far too satisfying to put aside. I did however refrain from the use of Malacath, but, I can’t stop you from using it. This setup has very high stamina regen and good magicka regen. It offers alot of damage through your monster set and proc all while giving you a ton of survival and recovery with your set bonuses. It’s what I’ve found the most fun for this go around.

The Cyrodiil version of this build is far more bland this patch due to the ongoing tests that only allow non-proc sets to work. So, I chose to go the more damage oriented direction with less resource sustain but a good amount of tankiness and high penetration and weapon damage. This build is pretty lackluster of flavour but it’s what I enjoyed the most out on the battlefield. Impreg gives us a nice resource pool boost alongside shrugging off more crits. Spriggan’s is the way to go for stam damage in cyro atm, thiing hits like a truck. This build will not bring anything new and exciting, but it will definitely work for those looking for a good medium build with good survivability and high damage.

Vampire vs. Werewolf vs. Mortal

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

Champion Points

Champion points were updated in the recent Flames of Ambition patch. The list below showcases the order in which the 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 new CP bar. The Warfare CP perks increase your damage and mitigation and are the most important, the Fitness tree has some miscellaneous sustain and defensive perks and the Craft tree has crafting and non-combat bonuses.
