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 works well together with Vampire thanks to their stealth and 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.

  • Unbuffed: Out of Combat, buff-food active
  • Buffed: In combat, buff-food, Spell Power Potion, Weapon Damage Enchantment, Skeletal Arcanist and Beckoning Armor active.
