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.

Leveling Gear options:

Other good sets I have used to level are as follows:

    • Worm’s Rainment
    • Julianos
    • Magnus’ Gift
    • Willpower

Monster sets alternatives:

  • Chokethorn
  • Earthgore
  • Sentinel of Rkugamz

Attributes

All points into magicka.  Put into health as needed if you are lower than about 18k-20k HP.

Skills

Front bar – Restoration Staff:

  • Cauterize – Hit this once every 15 seconds for a fire and forget heal.
  • Healing Springs – The go-to 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 – Life Giver– With the low ultimate cost, use when multiple people are low. Make sure that you have the Healing Ward and Mutagen morphs as well so that Life Giver will cast the morphed forms instead of just the base skill.

Back bar – Destruction Staff:

  • Crushing Shock – Ranged interrupt that comes in handy in many situations.
  • Cinder Storm – Recently remodeled to a heal and slow, use this to Proc Olorime’s right where you need to. Long lasting ground targeted heal over time.
  • 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.
  • Igneous Weapon – Buffs the group with Major Sorcery and Major Brutality for 33 seconds. Keep this up always.
  • Ultimate – 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

Draconic Power (Burning Heart, Elder Dragon, Scaled Armor), Earthen Heart (all), Light Armor (all), Restoration Staff (all), Destruction Staff (all), Fighters Guild (Banish the Wicked), Undaunted (all), Racial (all), Alchemy (Medicinal Use)

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 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.
