Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Dragon Knight Healer PvE Build, the Dentist, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for PvE of all kinds: trials, veteran dungeons and general PvE. With the Summerset expansion Dragon Knights got a nice buff to thier healing abilities. This included more range (28m) on Cauterize, a new heal in the form of Cinder Storm, as well as a 25% increase in healing from Obsidian Shard.  For leveling, there were many variations of skills, attributes, and equipment used in the leveling process.  I will present what I used mostly, but feel free to change things to suit your needs.

Front bar – Restoration Staff:

  • Obsidian Shard – Recently buffed with 25% more healing and a 28 meter healing range from the target of the spell.  Very strong burst heal with a stun.
  • Healing Springs – The goto for aoe healing. When you get 3 people standing together, you can spam this for days.  Use this to proc your Olorime’s set bonus
  • Healing Ward – The big save, use this as your emergency heal as Earthgore will save most people every 30 seconds automatically.
  • Energy Orbs – Decent heal, gives party resources, what’s not to like? Try not to spam them too much, you will run out of mana quickly.  Three at a time is all that is needed in dungeons.
  • Combat Prayer – Use this to buff your groups damage 8%. Best to use this once on cooldown.
  • ULT – Light’s Champion – With the low ultimate cost, use when multiple people are low. Anyone healed with this will get Major Protection and Major Force, which is buffed by your Jorvuld’s set.

Back bar – Restoration Staff:

  • Cauterize – Hit this once every 15 seconds for free healing on your allies.
  • Elemental Blockade – For the Off-balance debuff. Will proc your Olorime’s so make sure you keep an eye on placement.
  • Elemental Drain – Giving Major Breach and restores group Magicka.
  • Sanguine Altar – A ground target effect that will proc Olorime’s and stays around a long time.  Great for procing Bogdan’s.
  • Igneous Weapons – Used to buff, giving Major Brutality and Major Sorcery. With Jorvald’s the uptime can be over 50 seconds.
  • ULT – Aggressive Horn – It’s all about the buffs.

Potions

I’m an alchemist.  Since I provide all the Spell power bonuses I need, I like the lingering health recovery potions or tri-stat potions.

Passives

Tips & Misc.

  1. DK healing can be challenging until you get Cauterize, focus on using your resto staff skills. Using Healing Springs and Obsidian Shard and Healing Ward you will have the basic tools you need to heal through any normal dungeon.
  2. Make sure to keep Igneous Weapons up at all times.
  3. If using the Combat Physician set, and your mana regen can support it, switch to the Thief mundus for a better chance at proccing that awesome shield.
  4. If you cannot see the target you need to heal for some reason, spam Cauterize. It is multidirectional and will fire behind you.

Remember, this is a build guide to help others.  Using these strategies work for ME.  Please use what works for you as you see fit.  ESO is a game about choices.
