ESO PVP Builds

Update 37 (Firesong) 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!

The website has been fully updated. If you find any bugs or mistakes, please let me know (see Contact). Thank you for your patience and support!

Cyrodiil Angler

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.

These builds are intended to not only be tanky, but also super accessible and easy to play. Currently, one of the sets of the classic verion of this build (Battalion Defender) no longer drops, making that build hard to get. This is why an alternative version based on Mist Form can be found on the bottom of the page.

  • This build survives through the healing from Blood Mist and the shields generated by the Hardening Enchant. The enchantment is procced by the Cutting Defense champion point star. This means that for both shields and heals it’s important to remain in melee range of the enemy, so stacking up your enemies by using LoS or the pull from Beckoning Armor is important. 
  • Watch out for Negates, as this is the main counter for this build. When a player or a guard casts it on you, a roll dodge and a jump to keep momentum is the easiest way to get out of the Negate and into mistform again.
