Magicka Dragonknight Build “Valakas”

Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Dragonknight Build “Valakas” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.

The “Valakas” build is made for PvE Trials & Dungeons.

General Information

Magicka Dragonknights are currently one of the strongest class setups in Elder Scrolls Online. They unleash their maximum potential in melee range. Magicka Dragonknights have both crazy strong Single Target & AoE damage output. To make up for the danger in melee fights, we do have a shield at our disposal, which makes surviving very easy.

High single target (ST) damage
Insane melee damage
High area of effect (AoE) Damage
Decent sustain
Easy survivability due to magicka shield
Made for Trials & Dungeons

 

Gear [Best in Slot]

No Moondancer Staff? In case you do not have a Moondancer Staff, use a random sharpened staff. It is the next best solution and you barely loose any damage.
Moondancer vs Infallible Aether: Both sets do about the same damage. So.. if you do have Infalliable Aether but not Moondancer, just use the Infallible Aether set!

Gear [Beginner]

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential for this Magicka Dragonknight build. All the gear here is either craftable or cheap to get in a guildstore. Make sure to ask a friend to craft Twice Born Star and Julianos gear for you. I do recommend that you are aiming for 17k health. To achieve this you can buy one or two Willpower rings with a healthy trait.

Infallible Aether: Aetherian Archive/ Hel Ra Citadel

Skills

Magicka Dragonknight Build pve

Fire Staff Mainbar Fire Staff bar
Slot 1: Blockade of Fire Slot 1: Blockade of Fire
Slot 2: Burning Embers Slot 2: Rearming Trap
Slot 3 Molten Whip Slot 3: Eruption
Slot 4: Engulfing Flames Slot 4: Flames of Oblivion
Slot 5: Inner Light Slot 5: Harness Magicka
Ultimate: Shooting Star Ultimate: Standard of Might

Why double bar Blockade of Fire? This allows us to only barswap every 16 seconds to our backbar because Eruption and Flames of Oblivion both have a 16s timer. So we do not loose any damage by barswapping every 8 seconds to reapply Blockade of Fire. This of course only applies if you do have a Maelstrom Staff. If you do play without a Maelstrom staff you can use another skill on the backbar. Make sure to put Fiery Rage on your first bar if you do remove Blockade of Fire from the main bar, otherwise you will loose the Destruction staff passive with the 8% extra single target damage.
