Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Dragonkight Healer Build PvE “Obsidian” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Obsidian Healer Build is made for Dungeons.

The Obsidian Build is focusing immensely on group support. We are using Spellpower Cure and Worm Cult to buff our group as much as possible. Keep in mind, there is a huge variety of good Healer Sets, that I will in the gear section. Always adjust your builds to the situation, test things out and you will progress. On top of that we can also support our group with Engulfing Flames, adding an 10% extra fire damage taken to the boss. Resource management is also easier than on most other setups thanks to Battle Roar and Helping Hands.

Changes from the previous version

This build was added with Dragon Bones DLC.

Resource Management

We have more than enough Magicka Recovery to be able to sustain without any issues. Now on this build we are using 2x Spellcost reduction Glyphs in combination with Witchmothers Brew Drink to give us enough sustain. Also do not forget to Heavy Attack as Resto Staves give you 30% more resources back! On top of that we have access to Battle Roar and Helping Hands passives in the Earthen Heart Tree, which make sustain even easier. You get so much resources back for activating an Ultimate.

Gear

Gear Setup 1

As a Dragonknight Healer it is very imporant to talk to your buddy to adjust your gear. In a Dungeon or Raid you should always have Wormcult & Healing Mage set present. So most of the times Healer 1 (Wormcult & Spellpower Cure) and Healer 2 (Mending & Spellpower Cure). In the end it is up to you with what sets you go, I will list a few good sets here that you can choose from.

Skills

Remember, Healers often need to change a few skills out during runs. So this setup is not maced into stone, adjust it to your needs.

  • Healing Ward: This ability only needs to be used if an member takes a lot of damage and drops low on health.
  • Combat Prayer: This needs to be on the group members all the time to heal them and increase their damage by 8%.
  • Healing Springs: This is your main healing tool, its pretty cheap and heals a lot over time.
  • Inner Light: This is a ability that we do not use directly, but offers us an about 3k increase in Max Magicka.
  • Igneous Shield: You want to use this in tricky situations, it gives a small shield to everyone and increases your healing done by 25% for 2.5s.
  • Lights Champion Ulti: Only use this in “oh crap” moments. It is always better to use Warhorn to support your group with more max resources and crit modifier.
  • Engulfing Flames: If you have Magicka Users in your group that use Fire damage, use this to boost the Fire damage by 10%. Otherwise you can swap it out with another skill.
  • Elemental Blockade: Keep this on the ground as much as possible, when that Elemental Shock Blockade is on the ground with your charged trait, concussion and off balance will almost proc on cooldown, increasing group DPS by a lot.
  • Elemental Drain: This ability needs to be on the enemy as much as possible, it debuffs their Spell Resistance and gives Magicka Steal to your whole group, increasing sustain by a lot.
  • Energy Orb: Use this as much as possible, when group members activate the Synergy, they restore a lot of resources.
  • Unrelenting Grip: Use this to pull enemies to you into the group, to kill them faster.
  • Aggressive Warhorn: This is your main Ultimate, it buffs the groups resources and increases the critical damage modifier for 10 seconds.
  • Flex Spot: If you want to add another Skill, you can swap out Inner Light.
