Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Solo Magicka Dragonknight Build PvE, The Wyvern, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for playing solo PvE content, such as questing, public dungeons, Maelstrom Arena, etc.! This build has extremely strong Single Target and AoE pressure with the abilities we have at our disposal, as well as plenty of sustain and healing to keep ourselves alive reliably. My goal with this build was to create a magicka dragonknight build that could play solo effectively, but had strong thematic ties to the class’s identity!

Gear Set Explanation

Iceheart: This set is one of the strongest sets for solo PvE. We get a strong damage shield every time we deal critical damage (which adds a ton of survivability) and a solid frost damage AoE while that shield holds.

Burning Spellweave: Staple magicka dragon knight set, this set offers us a ton of damage and helps keep the burning status effect active, which is important to DK’s not only for damage, but burning ticks help grant us magicka back via the new combustion passive!

Seducer: An amazing damage set for sustain. Magicka Dragonknights do not have the best sustain, so wearing a set like Seducer helps a lot by making our very expensive skills significantly cheaper, allowing us to sustain our magicka pool while soloing.


All points into Magicka.

Resource Management & Rotation

  • Maintain Elemental Drain, Mystic Orb, Elemental Blockade, Engulfing Flames, and Burning Embers on your target.
  • Maintain Volatile Armor & Igneous Weapons at all times to help keep you tanky and keep  your damage high.
  • If none of your DoTs need to be refreshed, you want to light attack weave with Molten Whip.
  • If you know a boss/mob is going to deal a big amount of damage, use your Harness Magicka to defend yourself. If you need to heal yourself in a pinch, reapply burning embers. If you still need more healing, Coagulating Blood is there for emergencies!
  • When you’re low on magicka, use a heavy attack to restore resources!
