ESO PVP Builds

High Isle has launched on the live servers! New sets & builds need to be tested before I can update the site. This will take 2-3 weeks so that a decent build will be posted, and in case some early patch changes occur. Visit my Patreon to see the work in progress on the new builds!

Cyrodiil Angler

Updated for High Isle

Not feeling like PVP? Want to relax and embrace Cyrodiil questing? Complete fishing achievements? Visit dolmens and delves? Well, this multiclass build is for you! It utilizes an insane amount of damage mitigation, making you an un-gankable mountain of health™, a PVP repellent for those times when you just want the tryhards to leave you alone.

As it has only 1 skillbar, this build is as easy as it can get: simply block, cast a heal or ult every now and then and let the sets do the work for you. Both 5 piece sets are very easy to get as well in guild stores.

Stats (Unbuffed)

Note: this gives an estimate of what kind of stats this build ends up with. Since this build is for all classes, there can be a number of offsets. These stats are on an Imperial Templar. Small differences can occur due to a different item quality, missing traits etc.

  • It’s better to go with Prismatic armor enchants instead of Health, but they cost a lot more and both work anyway. 
  • This build can be made tankier by using Ironblood instead of Cyrodiil’s Crest and by using the second skillbar as well, but that’s beyond the scope of this page. The single bar and the heals from those two sets are the core of this build, and perfectly fulfil the aim of staying alive forever for a minimal effort.
