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.

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.

If you are new to ESO, please make sure to also read the New Player Beginners Guide and the Magicka Necromancer Beginners Guide.

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

Changes to the previous version

This build was added with the Elsweyr Chapter.

Resource Management

This setup has a lot of built in sustain through the Atronach Mundus Stone which gives Magicka Recovery, two Magicka Recovery Glyphs and we also run the Witchmother’s Potent Brew which also increases our Magicka Recovery. Now 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


In addition to the setups below, here is a list with other very good Healer sets that you can use:

  • Resistant Flesh: This ability is your burst heal, it also gives resistance to the player that receives the heal.
  • Combat Prayer: This needs to be on the group members all the time to heal them and increase their damage by 8%.
  • Healing Springs: This is your main healing tool, its pretty cheap and heals a lot over time.
  • Expunge and Modify: You can cleanse debuffs and regain resources with this ability. For example you can cleanse the debuff you get from Resistant Flesh
  • Energy Orb: Make sure to spam these from time to time so your group members can use the Synergy to regain resources.
  • 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.

Other useful skills:

  • Mutagen: Can be a nice heal over time.
  • Harness Magicka: If you do need a shield to bolster incoming damage, then use this skill.

There is also a few more, in the end make sure you feel comfortable with your build so you can do your best keeping your group alive!

Important Info for Magicka Necromancer Healer Build PvE


Ideally you want to use the Clockwork Citrus Filet as it provides you with a little bit extra Magicka and Health. However, that food is quite expensive, the other option is Witchmother’s Potent Brew that has similar stats.
