Welcome to the Magicka Sorcerer Build PvE Caluurion, for Elder Scrolls Online. This build is part of the Sheogorath’s Corner, thus it uses very specific themed sets and is here to bring fun and entertaining gameplay! If you want a more maximized dps setup I recommend checking out my Magicka Sorcerer Pet Build & my Magicka Sorcerer Non Pet Build which both are optimized for end game Trials & Dungeons!
This Build is based on the Boss “Caluurion” from the Fang Lair Dungeon and features sets like Caluurion’s Legacy which launches a Fire, Ice, Shock, or Disease ball at your target when you deal Critical Damage with a single target magicka ability. The Nerien’eth monster set which summons a Lich Crystal that explodes after 2 seconds when you deal direct damage, this can also be activated by Caluurion’s proc. Caluurion’s Legacy requires a critical hit to get activated and Nerien’eth has a 10% chance to proc on direct damage attacks. Having Force Pulse and Crystal Fragments will guarantee that those two sets activate on cooldown. The five piece sets can be aquired in normal and veteran mode of the dungeons. The Nerien’eth monster set has to be aquired in veteran mode. We are using a full light attack rotation with this build, I made sure you have enough sustain with this build. Also, I do recommend getting hold of the Imperfect Asylum Destruction Staff for this build as it will make the build more efficient, it is not necessarily required tho. The Imperfect Staff is very easy to get as you are only required to do normal Asylum Sanctorium.
- Caluurion themed build
- Caluurion’s Legacy Set & Nerien’eth Monster Set
- Good Singletarget damage
- Good sustain
- Easy survivability due to magicka shield
- Solo & Dungeons
The Caluurion’s Legacy set five piece bonus is: “ When you deal Critical Damage with a single target Magicka ability, you launch a Fire, Ice, Shock, or Disease ball at your target that deals 12900 damage and applies a status effect. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds”. The set is quite easy to activate because we are using Force Pulse and Crystal Fragments, which both are single target abilities and can crit. Caluurion’s set can also activate Nerien’eth, because it counts as direct damage.
The Nerien’eth monster set five piece bonus is: “When you deal direct damage, you have a 10% chance to summon a Lich crystal that explodes after 2 seconds, dealing 8800 Magic Damage to all enemies within 4 meters. This effect can occur once every 3 seconds”. So this can proc from Force Pulse, Crystal Fragments and the Caluurion’s set. It does good AoE damage in a medium sized circle. Once it activates, it takes two seconds till it explodes.
Imperfect Asylum Destruction Staff
The Imperfect Asylum Destruction Staff is a very good option for all ranged magicka builds. “Every third cast (second cast with perfect) of Force Shock will always apply the Burning, Concussion, and Chilled status effects. The Force Shock casts must be made within 10 seconds of each other for this effect to occur.” This will cause the enemy to take 8% more damage from concussion, enemy will do 15% less damage to you while chilled status effect is active. Burning status effect will apply a strong flame damage over time effect on the enemy. If you want to learn more about status effects in ESO you can check out my Status Effects Article.
On our first gearsetup this is used to give us some extra stats in combination with the Caluurion set, Nerien’eth and the Asylum Staff.
On the alternative setup we use four pices of this set, jewelry and the weapons. This gives us some nice extra stats in combination with the other sets.
We are using Witchmother’s Brew and one Magicka Recovery Glyph for this setup which provides us with more than enough sustain. I also recommend being a Vampire (Stage 2) to increase your magicka recovery by another 10%. However, if you still have sustain issues I recommend using a second Recovery Glyph. I also recommend using Potions on cooldown and you should also make sure that Elemental Drain is applied in dungeons to get Minor Magickasteal. You can also do Heavy Attacks to restore Magicka.
- Magicka Recovery Glyph
- Heavy Attacks
- Witchmothers Brew
Solo & Dungeons Setup
- Maelstrom Weapon: If you do have a Maelstrom Staff use it. I simply do not list it up here because I do not expect all people to have it for those setups.
- Asylum Staff: If you do have an Asylum Staff, I do recommend using it because it will increase damage tremendously, you can easily aquire the Staff in normal Asylum Sanctorium.
