Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Stamina Sorcerer PVP Build, Strain, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is meant for dueling, open world, small group play, as well as battlegrounds. This build highlights pressure as your main source of dps that turns into high burst when your window of opportunity presents itself for a surprise most people wouldn’t see coming from a tanky pressure build. This build combines high damage and high mitigation in a unique way that is sure to take you and the enemy off guard.

Other Important Info

Buff Food

I use Capon Tomato Beet Caserole (Max Health, Max Stamina, Max Magicka) to tune my 3 resource pools since I use them all and sustain is mostly done through heavy attacks and dark deal/sprinting. You could also use Dubious Camoran Throne (Max Heatlh, Stamina and Stamina Recovery) if you need more sustain.

Mundus

Warrior – Increased Weapon Damage (Recommended)

Serpent – Increased Stamina Recovery

Race

Orc

Potions

Immovable + Health + Stam

Tips & Misc.

This build is incredibly tanky and still deals a ton of damage, though in order to do so, healing can feel lack luster. Use Deep Thoughts and Dark deal to make up for that when you have breathing room. Despite it’s tankiness, you are not a god, you can shrug off immense amount of damage but your lack of healing during a fight will catch up to you eventually without some help. Your bleeds and enchants will deal a ton of unavoidable damage that you need to use to bring the enemy to a lower threshold of health in order to use your db/reverse slice combo at max effect. The flex spots in this build are listed in order of which I find more important but feel free to substitute them for more sustain or healing as need be.
