Introduction

Welcome to the Necromancer Tank Build PvE “Colossus” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Necromancer Tank Build PvE “Colossus” is optimized for Dungeons & Trials. Keep in mind there is a huge variety of different tank builds out there that synergize well depending on your group setup. Remember, each Dungeon or Trial needs some small adjustments to the build. So if you for example feel that you need more health, then go for it!

  • Necromancer Class
  • Trial, Dungeon & Arena
  • Tank/ Support Build
  • Heavy Armor
  • Great sustain
  • Great survivability
  • Great self healing

Beginner Gear Setup

This beginner setup is here for people that do not have access to the other setup now. You can ask a friend to craft Fortified Brass and Torug’s Pact for you. You could also use Plague Doctor instead of Torug’s Pact as it is very cheap available in the Guild Stores.

Important Info for Necromancer Tank Build PvE

Buff-food

Longfin pasty with Melon Sauce (Max Health+Max Stamina+Max Magicka)

Longfin pasty with melon sauce

Mundus Stone

The Lord (Max Health)

Race

Nords: Please keep in mind, if you are a Nord you have more resistances than on other races because of your passives.

Nord (Recommended, fastest ultimate generation)
Argonian (Recommended, best sustain)
Imperial
Orc
Redguard

Potions

Tri-Stat Potion
(Health, Stamina, Magicka)
(Bugloss, Columbine, Mountain Flower)

Tri Stat Potion

Passives

Note: Make sure to NOT activate the Tri-Focus passive from the Destruction Staff, because we want blocking to cost stamina and not magicka. And that passive would convert blocking to magicka on the Destruction Staff bar.

Attributes

You have to make sure to have a bit more Stamina than Magicka. Because of the Synergies you pick up give you back whatever stat is higher. You can change this to your liking, if you do not need that much health, get more stamina.

24 Magicka, 0 Health, 40 Stamina
