Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Necromancer Vampire Build “VampCro” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. This Magicka Necromancer Build is made for Trials, Dungeons and Maelstrom. You can also find other Magicka Necromancer content on the website such as:

This build is focused on a true Vampire experience. Necromancer in combination with Vampire make up for good stealth like gameplay in addition with health draining mechanics!

Vampires have the drawback of a huge cost increase on all non-Vampire abilities, therefore the False God's Devotion set can really make a huge difference to help with sustain. We also use the set Caluurion's Legacy that will constantly proc and summon elemental crystals that shoot at the enemy. In addition, we use the Grothdarr Monster Set for more AoE damage.

  • Vampire
  • Magicka Necromancer
  • Double Destro
  • Vampire Lord & Goliath
  • Stealth

Resource Management

Undead Confederate gives us 200 extra Magicka Recovery as long as we keep up our Skeletal Arcanist.

Potions should always be used on cooldown to gain the maximum benefit from them.

Heavy Attacks help you restore Magicka, if you drop low on resources do a few Heavy Attacks between skills to refill your Magicka.

  • Undead Confederate Passive
  • Potions
  • Heavy Attacks

Vampire Setup

5x Perfect False God, 5x Caluurion’s Legacy, 2x Grothdarr on a High Elf with Solitude Salmon Millet Soup buff food (Screenshot is from the Greymoor Chapter).

Important Info for Vampire Necromancer Build PvE

Here you can find information about what race, buff-food, potions & poisons you want to use. I also do list all the passives that you need for this setup.

Buff-food

Solitude Salmon Millet Soup
(Max Health, Max Magicka)

Food buff

If you want more sustain you could also use Witchmother’s Potent Brew that can be bought for a low price in the Guildstores.

Food buff

Mundus Stone

The Lover Mundus Stone is the best choice for this setup, it increases our overall spell penetration, which boost our overall damage.

Lover Mundus Stone (Increased Spell Penetration)

Race

Any Magicka based race works.

High Elf
Breton
Dark Elf
Khajiit
Argonian

Potions

Spell-Power Potions
(Spell-crit, Spell Damage, Magicka)
(Cornflower, Ladys Smock, Water Hyacinth)

Spell Power Potions

You can also simply use Essence of Magicka, they barely cost anything in the Guildstore and they drop from monsters. Please make sure to use Degeneration and Inner Light to get the Major Sorcery and Prophecy buff, which you usually get from the expensive Spell Power Potions.
