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 and Trials. Remember, always adjust builds to your needs. If you are new to ESO, please make sure to also check out:

The Magicka Dragonknight Healer Build PvE has very strong class based abilities like Cauterize, Cinder Storm and Fragmented Shield. Those Skills in combination with the Restoration Staff Skill-line makes up for a very strong Healer setup! Overall the Dragonknight Healer can push out a lot of heal over times.

  • Insane Resource Management
  • Insane Healing Output
  • Group Support
  • Buff/Debuff Setup
  • Light Armor
  • Fire Debuff on Enemy
  • Easy Sustain

Resource Management

We have more than enough Magicka Recovery to be able to sustain without any issues. Using Clockwork Citrus Filet (or Witchmother’s Potent Brew) in combination with a Magicka Recovery Glyph and The Atronach Mundus Stone which also boosts our Magicka Recovery, we get to a pretty good high Magicka Recovery.

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.

  • Battle Roar & Helping Hands
  • Magicka Recovery Glyph
  • Potions
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Clockwork Citrus Filet (Witchmothers Brew Drink)

Dungeons & Trial Setup

5x Spell Power Cure, 5x Hollowfang, 2x Sentinel of Rkguamz, 1x Perfected Grand Rejuvenation on a High Elf with Witchmother’s Drink.

Gear

You can find more good sets for healing in the “Must Have Healer Sets” Article. To be fully ready I recommend trying to get most of these sets and confirm with your raid leader what combinations you need them in.

Skill explanation:

  • Radiating Regeneration: Very strong heal over time that you have to keep up all the time.
  • Combat Prayer: This is your main spammable as a healer, it needs to be on the group members all the time to heal them and increase their damage by 8%.
  • Illustrious Healing: Very strong heal over time.
  • Obsidian Shard: Huge Burst Heal with a long range. 28m range to the enemy and then it can travel another 28m to heal a ally.
  • Fragmented Shield: Applies a small shield and gives you Major Mending for 5 seconds.
  • Live Giver Ulti: Heals for a lot and applies several other heals to the low Health Player.
  • Cinder Storm: Strong and long lasting heal over time that can be placed on the ground.
  • 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.
  • Cauterize: Very powerful burst heal, shoots Orbs at allies to heal them.
  • Aggressive Warhorn: This is your main Ultimate, it buffs the groups resources and increases the critical damage modifier for 10 seconds.
