Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Sorcerer PvP Build “Streak” for the 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. We are using Crafty Alfiq and Bright-Throat’s Boast in combination with the Maw of the Infernal Monster Set. Our total shield size is also over 20k thanks to Hardened Ward and Harness Magicka.

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

Resource Management

The setup already has a lot of Magicka Recovery built in through Magicka Recovery glyphs on the jewelry.

Dark Conversion will allow you to trade Stamina for Health and Magicka, this is your main resource management tool.

Heavy Attacks are always a good way to restore resources, if you are doing a Heavy Attack on the Restoration Staff bar, you will even get 30% more Magicka back due to the Cycle of Life passive.

Potions are a must have with every build, by activating a potion you will get a lot of buffs and a huge return on all your three resources, more about that in the potion section of the build.

  • Magicka Recovery
  • Dark Conversion
  • Heavy Attacks

Skill explanation:

  • Hardened Ward: This is your main defense, applies a huge shield to you that can absorb a lot of incoming damage.
  • Crystal Fragments: Only activate this when instant proc happens. The proc can happen if you press any of the other abilities on the front bar.
  • Crushing Shock: Your main spammable, that has to be weaved with light attacks.
  • Streak: Very powerful stun, can not be blocked or dodged, also deals decent damage. Can be used to escape tough situations.
  • Haunting Curse: Very strong damage on one enemy, takes a while to explode but you can time your burst very well with this.
  • Shooting Star: use this ultimate on an enemy and streak towards him, that way he can not block the impact hit.
  • Dark Conversion: Restores Health and returns Magicka in trade for Stamina.
  • Radiating Regeneration: Your main heal over time, keep this up all the times to get constant healing.
  • Harness Magicka: Applies a big shield and also returns magicka when you get hit by a spell.
  • Boundless Storm: Applies Major Resistances, deals a bit of damage and gives you speed buff for a short duration.
  • Critical Surge: Every time you crit, you gain a lot of health, must be activated all the time.
  • Greater Storm Atronach: Can be used if you are fighting a single enemy, very strong continuous attack.
