Magicka Sorcerer Pet Build “Summoner” Morrowind

Table of Contents

Introduction

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 & Maelstrom Arena.

Magicka Sorcerers are one of the strongest setups in Elder Scrolls Online. This build is using a Heavy Attack rotation. 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! The most difficult thing with this build, is that you need to be able to command your pets correctly! Remember, wheny ou do a Heavy Attack on a enemy the Pet will not directly attack it.

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

Resource Management

Make sure that you have “Drain Magicka Poisons”, they help tremendously with sustain. In the Important Info section you will see how to craft them. They give you about 240 Magicka per second over 5,5 seconds, thats insane! This build here uses Heavy Attacks to sustain, so we do not really need anything else besides this. However, 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

Gear

Gear Best in Slot

  • No Moondancer/Maelstrom Staff? Those Two Staves are very difficult to get. You could get two Necropotence Staves, if you do not have a Moondancer staff. Or use a random sharpened staff.
  • Why a Shock Staff? Heavy Shock Staffs do a ton of damage and it also helps a lot with restoring Magicka. Dealing damage and restoring Magicka? Hell yes!
  • Health: Make sure to have around 17,2k Health, you might need to invest like 6 points into the Health Attribute to reach this!

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. Julianos is craftable and Necropotence can be farmed in Rivenspire. In case you do not have time to farm Necropotence you could also use Twice Born Star! Make sure to ask a friend to craft 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.

Where can I get the gear?

Necropotence: Rivenspire
Moondancer: Maw of Lorkhaj
Ilambris: Crypts of Hearts
Julianos
: Craftable
Willpower: Imperial City Vaults, Guildstore
Twice Born Star: Craftable
Maelstrom Staff: vMaelstrom Arena

Skills

  • Why no Force Pulse and Crystal Frags? Instead of using Force Pulse and Crystal Frags we are doing two Heavy Attacks and then we restart the Rotation again. This way we can have a full damage build and still be able to sustain just fine!
  • Matriarch instead of Bound Aegis? You can do that if you want, I simply prefer the Max Magicka over another Pet that might die at some point in the fight.
