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!

Stamina Necromancer

Updated for Ascending Tide

Build 1: CP & Battlegrounds

Stamcro remains a good stamina spec for PvP. This is largely thanks to its natural tankiness (which even allows it to run medium armor and still brawl with ease) and access to one of the strongest healing toolkits in the game.

  • Even though it’s a full medium armor build, it remains important to heavy attack frequently to keep up the sustain.
  • An alternative ult setup is Goliath + Temporal Guard, this is interesting when you frequently deal with heavily outnumbered situations.

  • On races other than Imperial it’s better to use 1pc Trainee instead of Magma Incarnate and an additional Stamina Regeneration jewelry glyph.
  • Even though it’s a full medium armor build, it remains important to heavy attack frequently to keep up the sustain.
  • An alternative ult setup is Goliath + Temporal Guard, this is interesting when you frequently deal with heavily outnumbered situations.
