Important Info for Magicka Niecromancer Build PvP


I highly recommend using the Clockwork Citrus Filet food, it will give you overall better stats. However, if you do not have the money you can also use the Witchmother drink which gives similar stats.

Clockwork Citrus Filet (Max Health, Max Magicka, Magicka Recovery, Health Recovery)
Witchmothers Brew (Max Health, Max Magicka, Magicka Recovery)

Mundus Stone

We need the extra magicka recovery from the Atronach to sustain this setup.

The Atronach (Increased Magicka Recovery)


All magicka based races work for this setup. If you want to know more about races you can also check out my racial guide for ESO that showcases all the benefits of the different races.
