Table of Contents

Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Sorcerer Build PvE “Mystic” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. You can also find a Magicka Sorcerer Pet Build on my website if you prefer pets!

The Magicka Sorcerer Build PvE “Mystic” is made for Trials, Dungeons & Maelstrom Arena. You can also play this for all the Solo content with some minor adjustments. This build is made for people that do not like to run pets, if you want max damage output I recommend running the Summoner Magicka Sorcerer Pet Build.

Shock abilities give you a huge advantage in terms of damage output due to concussion, as all enemies will take 8% more damage once concussion is applied, this build gives you a lot of uptime on concussion so you will help your group out a lot with extra damage. Once an enemy is concussed our Blockade of Shock will apply Off-Balance on the enemy, giving us another 10% more damage! On top of that you can get a huge amount of magicka, which makes your shields stronger and makes survivability pretty easy. And with Heavy Attacks from Shock staves you will have an easy time sustaining in trashfights and deal a ton of damage at the same time!

  • Good single target (ST) damage
  • Insane ranged & melee damage
  • High area of effect (AoE) Damage
  • Shock Themed Build
  • Good sustain
  • Easy survivability due to magicka shield
  • Trials, Dungeons & Maelstrom Arena

Changes from the previous version

I added the most common Setup to the list, Julianos, Moondancer and Monster Set. I already talked about this in an Article about Gear Setups. Both setups will give you similar results in DPS. I also swapped out Clench for Crystal Fragments again, makes the rotation definitely more interesting and engaging.

Resource Management

If you feel like that you need more sustain, you can always use a Cost Reduction Glyph/Recovery Glyph if you want. If you want you can also run Witchmothers Brew which will give you a lot of recovery, your health will drop a bit but because you have Pets you still should be good to go, otherwise invest some points into Health attribute!

Trials & Dungeons Setup

*Spell Power Potion and Spelldmg Enchant were active, using Witchmothers Brew Drink.




Gear

Rotation

Before the fight starts drink a potion and then wait a few seconds, drop Ultimate whenever it is ready. If you drop low on Magicka you can always do a Heavy Attack instead of a Force Pulse.

> Light Attack > Force Pulse >  Light Attack > Force Pulse  > Light Attack > Force Pulse > Light Attack > Weapon Swap
> Liquid Lightning > Light Attack > Blockade of Storms > Weapon Swap
