Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Sorcerer PvP Build “Streak” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The “Streak” build is made for PvP and works in Cyrodiil and Battlegrounds. If you are new to the game I recommend reading the Sorcerer Beginner Guide first alongside with a lot of other beginner guides.

The Mag Sorc Streak build has a lot of burst potential while maintaining defense through shields and healing. Resource management will be easy to maintain because there is a lot of sustain already built into the setup. To reach our 45k Magicka, 25k Health, 14k Stamina and 2,2k Magicka Recovery & 1200 Stamina Recovery we are using Shacklebreaker, Bright-Throat's Boast and Bloodspawn. This is one of the strongest combination for a Magicka Sorcerer in PvP plus the gear is very easily accessible. Bloodspawn is a key component to the build giving us the needed stamina recovery for more dodge rolls and blocking and the extra ultimate regeneration is nice to give our burst damage the extra juice it needs.

  • Cyrodiil & Battlegrounds
  • Light Armor Destr & Resto
  • High Burst Damage
  • High Mobility
  • Big Shields
  • Good Healing

Changes from the previous version

This build was added with the Scalebreaker DLC, Elsweyr Chapter. The Storm build got archived.

Resource Management

The setup has a lot of sustain already built in so you do not have to actively worry about it too much. Two Magicka Recovery Glyphs on the jewelry and Bright Throats regen boost in combination with a drink is already a huge part of the whole package. In addition you have another 2 Magicka Recovery stats from Shacklebreaker and Shacklebreaker set bonuses. Occasionally you can also use Restoration or Fire Staff heavy attacks to regain a lot of resources if needed.

Your key component to control your resources is the Tri-Stat Potion that you should use, it gives so much overall stats and can be a life saver in though situation.

  • Bright Throats regen
  • Heavy Attacks

Gear Setup

Shacklebreaker in combination with Bright Throats is a great combo, if you want you can use different Monster Set options but Blood Spawn is pretty much top notch.
