Magicka Sorcerer Pet Build “Summoner”


Welcome to the Magicka Sorcerer Pet Build “Summoner” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.

The “Summoner” build is made for PvE Trials & Dungeons, with some small modification you also can play Solo with the build.

General Information

Magicka Sorcerers are currently one of the strongest setups in Elder Scrolls Online. They are both insane efficient both ranged and melee, plus they have strong shields which makes survival easy. The special Destruction staff passives make Shock staves a powerful tool for Magicka Sorcerers. Shock heavy attacks are one of the strongest Area of Effect (AoE) attacks. On top of that, they are for free and restore Magicka! You will never have any problems with resource management during trashfights. Same thing on bossfights, if you drop low, simplay heavyattack one or two times and you are good to go!

On top of that, we are using Volatile Familiar pet combined with the Necropotence set which gives us a huge magicka resource pool.

  • High single target (ST) damage
  • Insane ranged & melee damage
  • High area of effect (AoE) Damage
  • Pet Build
  • Easy survivability due to magicka shield
  • Trials, Dungeons, Solo & Open World, it works everywhere!


Gear [Best in Slot]

No Moondancer Staff? In case you do not have a Moondancer Staff, use a random sharpened staff. It is the next best solution and you barely loose any damage.

Gear [Beginner]

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential for this Magicka Sorcerer Pet build. All the gear here is either craftable or cheap to get in a guildstore. Make sure to ask a friend to craft Twice Born Star and Julianos gear for you. I do recommend that you are aiming for 17k health. To achieve this you can buy one or two Willpower rings with a healthy trait.

Hardened Ward vs Harness Magicka: You always want to use Hardened Ward for this build, because it shields you and your pet. Harness Magicka on the other hand only shields yourself.

Inner Light vs Bound Aegis: Bound Aegis would give us an additional 1% magicka. However, we would have to double slot it, Inner Light needs to be slotted on one bar only, which opens a slot for a SHIELD (Hardened Ward) which both protects you and your pet!
