Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Solo Magicka Necromancer Build PvE, The Conjuror, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for playing solo PvE content, such as questing, public dungeons, Maelstrom Arena, etc.! This build focuses on summoning a ton of fire-and-forget pets, allowing you to build your own personal army while exploring the world! My goal with this build was to create a magicka necromancer build that could play solo effectively, but had strong thematic ties to the class’s identity!

Gear Set Explanation

Maw of the Infernal: This monster set plays perfectly into the goal of trying to summoning as many fire-and-forget pets as we can! The Infernal summon gives a targetable pet that deals solid AoE damage and adds another body to the battlefield and another soldier in your army!

Coldharbour’s Favorite: Another summon focused set, you summon Honor to either heal or deal damage based on your actions. This versatile summon can help you based on your needs at the time, and plays perfectly into the build’s theme!

Burning Spellweave: An amazing damage set for for Magicka DPS, giving us a big spell damage boost whenever we deal flame damage. Since we deal fire damage with blastbones, we are able to use that to proc this set to give us a massive boost to our offensive prowess!

NOTE: If you want to run ring of the pale order, move one of your BSW pieces to your shoulder and replace your ring with the Ring of the Pale Order.


All points into Magicka.

Resource Management & Rotation

  • Maintain Degeneration, Unstable Wall of Elements, Unnerving Boneyard, and Skeletal Arcanist.
  • Maintain Summoner’s Armor at all times to help keep you tanky.
  • Use Deaden Pain every time there are corpses near you to generate ultimate, give you a HoT and major protection!
  • If none of your DoTs need to be refreshed, you want to light attack weave with Death Scythe or heavy attack if you need magicka.
  • If you know a boss/mob is going to deal a big amount of damage, use your Harness Magicka to defend yourself and use Deaden Pain. Also, making sure to have the Mender pet up in case your shield goes down will help alot to get a nice big heal!
