Introduction

Welcome to the Necromancer Healer Build PvE “Scourge” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Scourge Necromancer build is created for Trials & Dungeons. If you are new to ESO, please make sure to also check out:

The Necromancer healer functions similar to the other healer specs. Like always healers have to adjust depending on the situation and the group they play with. There are a few very viable set combos that you can choose from, so the one you see below is just one possible option.

  • Necromancer Class
  • Dungeon, Arena & Trial Build
  • Insane Healing
  • Insane Sustain
  • Light Armor
  • Group Support

Resource Management

This setup has a lot of built in sustain through the Atronach Mundus Stone which gives Magicka Recovery, one Magicka Recovery Glyph and we also run the Clockwork Citrus Filet (or Witchmother’s Potent Brew) which also increases our Magicka Recovery.

You want to make sure to keep up your Spirit Guardian because of your Undead Confederate passive. The Spirit Guardian has a 16 seconds duration, so it should be fairly easy to keep up.


Trials & Dungeons Setup

Gear

You can find more good sets for healing in the “Must Have Healer Sets” Article. To be fully ready I recommend trying to get most of these sets and confirm with your raid leader what combinations you need them in.

Skill explanation:

  • Resistant Flesh: This ability is your burst heal, it also gives resistance to the player that receives the heal.
  • Combat Prayer: This is your main spammable as a healer, it needs to be on the group members all the time to heal them and increase their damage by 5%.
  • Illustrious Healing: Very strong heal over time.
  • Radiating Regeneration: Very strong heal over time that you have to keep up all the time.
  • Energy Orb: Always make sure that one orb floats around, that way your group members can synergize the bubble and get resources back.
  • Renewing Animation: This is one of the strongest ultimates, if you are the last standing member, make sure to activate this to resurrect them all at the same time!
  • Elemental Blockade: Keep this on the ground as much as possible, when that Elemental Shock Blockade is on the ground with your charged trait, concussion and off balance will almost proc on cooldown, increasing group DPS by a lot.
  • Unnerving Boneyard: Allies can use a Synergy when this is active, and this is also used to proc Olorime on the backbar.
  • Elemental Drain: This ability needs to be on the enemy as much as possible, it debuffs their Spell Resistance and gives Magicka Steal to your whole group, increasing sustain by a lot.
  • Spirit Guardian: Keep this up at all times, this heals for a lot and also activates the passive so you gain 200 Magica Recovery all the time.
  • Summoner’s Armor: You also must keep this up all the time, gives you more resistances and also keeps the passive active so you receive 10% less damage from DoTs.
  • Aggressive Warhorn: This is your main Ultimate, it buffs the groups resources and increases the critical damage modifier for 10 seconds.
