Magicka Sorcerer Build PvE “Mystic” – Summerset Chapter

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 a pet build 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 because we are using the Asylum Staff which applies this very often. The second set that we use is Acuity which will give us a huge overall spellcrit boost. Because we use Force Pulse and the Asylum Weapon, Acuity will proc on cooldown as each Force Pulse hit (3 Hits) counts as a direct damage hit and when the status effects go off we get even more direct damage hits. The last set is Siroria, this is a very powerful set, it provides more bonus stats than most other sets and if you learn how to keep up the Siroria buff you can almost permanently get 600 Spell Damage from the five piece bonus.

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

Changes from the previous version

Updated and optimized Champion Points. Updated Champion Points. Now we can use 5x 5x 2x setup thanks to the change of two handed weapons now counting as two pieces. Acuity is still strong on this setup thanks to Force Pulse and the status effects. Our main setup is 5 Acuity, 5 Siroria, 1 Asylum Staff. This gave me the best results, we had to get rid of the Monster Set tho. We still run 3 Arcane for now.

Resource Management

If you feel like that you need more sustain, you can always use a Cost Reduction Glyph/Recovery Glyph if you want. We run Witchmothers Brew which will give you a lot of magicka recovery. That combined with CP and other stuff puts you at quite a high Recovery rate which is enough to sustain a Light attack rotation.

Trials & Dungeons Setup

Spell Power Potion, Weapon Damage Enchantment, Siroria and Mechanical Acuity were active, Gear setup 1.



Gear

Here are several other good Sets that you can use:

  • Perfect vs Imperfect Asylum: I highly recommend getting a Perfect version of the Asylum staff, as you will apply the status effects way more than with the Imperfect one. Make sure to do the Weekly Trial, if it is Asylum, with as much Characters as possible to get a chance for that perfect staff.

Rotation & Skeleton Parse

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.

Skeleton Parse

Keep in mind, I changed to Lover Mundus for this test, in raids I still do recommend running Apprentice Mundus.
