Introduction

Welcome to the Werewolf Build PvE “Solo Werewolf” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. This build is designed for Solo Overland, Dungeons and the Maelstrom Arena.

If you want a group focused max DPS Werewolf build please check out the “Claws” Werewolf Build! You can also find all Class setups in the Claws build, whereas here we just focus on the Werewolf part of things! If you are looking for an introduction into Werewolf, I recommend checking out the very detailed Werewolf, everything you need to know guide!

The focus of this build is to give you easy accessible gear choices that are very effective in Werewolf form, which will make it fairly difficult to kill you because you have constant healing going on. We can achieve really high health recovery with this setup, which will always give you constant healing even if you forget to activate your healing ability.

  • Solo Werewolf Build
  • One Bar Build
  • Any Class, Any Race
  • Optimized for Maelstrom Arena
  • Advanced & Easy to get Gear (Non-DLC, Orsinium)
  • Good DPS
  • Good Survivability
  • Built-in Healing

IMPORTANT

This build works well because we have higher health recovery and higher health than other setups. Therefore the chance to get one shot is way smaller and even if you forget to heal yourself, the health recovery will carry you for a while! So make sure to get as close to my health recovery values and health as my character. Most important are the Artaeum Food, Alessian Set and the Potions that we use.


Solo Setup

Gear Setups

If you are on a budget:

  • Alessian & Briarheart: You can actually buy both Alessian and Briarheart from the store for a fairly cheap price as long as you don’t pick the perfect trait.
  • Blue Quality Jewelry: Blue Briarheart jewelry is very cheap. You really only need to make sure to gold out your weapons for the extra damage on this setup.

Why Heavy Armor?

  • It provides higher resistances and therefore increases our health recovery because of the Alessian set.
  • It provides increased healing, which is very helpful for our setup.
  • It also restores small amounts of resources when we get hit.

Setup 1 with Mythic Item

Ring of the Pale Order is the most powerful healing item set in the game, if you have access to it, I recommend always using it in solo content.

Where can I get the gear?

Troll King: vet Blessed Crucible
Ring of the Pale Order: Antiquities System
Briarheart: Wrothgar or Guildstores
Alessian Order: Cyrodiil, Vlastarus Elite Gear Vendor or Guildstore

There is an unique Dagger for Briarheart that you can acquire from a quest in Wrothgar. Next to the Icy Shore Wayshrine talk to a guy called Eshir and follow his questline. If you do this on two characters, you will get two daggers. You will have to re-trait them though with the transmute station.

Slot 1: Brutal Pounce
Slot 2: Hircine’s Rage
Slot 3: Howl of Agony
Slot 4: Deafening Roar
Slot 5: Claws of Life
Ultimate: Werewolf Berserker

Skill Explanation

  • Light Attacks: Light Attacks are your main damage tool as a Werewolf, they do immense damage and also apply bleeding on the target.
  • Heavy Attacks: If you drop low on Stamina, use Heavy Attacks to restore huge amounts of Stamina. This is possible thanks to the Pursuit passive.
  • Brutal Pounce: Gap closer and applies Brutal Carnage, increasing your Weapon Damage.
  • Hircine’s Rage: This is your primary heal that you can activate when needed. If you are at max Health and you use this, you regain Stamina and get a damage boost.
  • Howl of Agony: Your main spammable.
  • Deafening Roar: This ability fears up to 6 targets and also applies Major Fracture to the enemy.
  • Claws of Life: This is your main active healing tool. Make sure it stays on all the enemies to keep the healing effect up.
  • Berserker: The bleed does a lot of damage in addition to the light attack damage.

IMPORTANT

Always keep Claws of Life on the enemy. That is your most reliable heal over time.

Important Info for Solo Stamina Werewolf Build PvE

Buff-food

For this build to truly work in more difficult content such as the veteran Maelstrom, you have to run a fairly expensive buff food called Artaeum Takeaway Broth, you need this one because it gives you A LOT of health recovery that you really need. You can buy it in the guildstores.

For less difficult content you can also use Dubious Camoran Throne.

Food buff dubious camoran throne

Mundus Stone

The Lover Mundus Stone provides us with extra penetration, which increases our damage. For more information on Mundus Stones please visit the Mundus Stone Overview Page.

Race

All stamina based races work with this setup. More about each race can be found on the racial overview page.

Khajiit
Orc
Redguard
Imperial
Wood Elf
Nord
Argonian
High Elf

Potions

You can either use the Essence of Health or the Crown Store potions that provide you with all 3 stats. We are using tri-stat potions because we need the stamina, magicka and health. The stamina is used for our damage abilities, block and dodge roll. Magicka is used for support abilities such as Hircine’s Rage.

Resource Management

Heavy Attack is our main resources tool, each heavy attack restores around 4500 stamina, 3000 is base and we also get an extra 50% from the Pursuit passive. Heavy Attacks also deal crazy damage, therefore you won’t even lose damage.

Potions also make a huge difference, if you use the recommended tri-stat potions and you activate them, you regain 9122 Health and 7582 Stamina and Magicka with out button press. Please make sure to have the Medicinal Use passive, that way the recovery buff will last for the full duration of the potion.

Hircine’s Rage can be used at full health to also restore another 3000 Stamina.


Rotation

Your main damage source are light attacks. Most enemies die within a few light attack hits. You can also charge a heavy attack if you are swapping a target. Other than that you could use Deafening Roar to FEAR enemies, so they get stunned for a short duration.


Gameplay

Here you can find a full run with the build in the veteran Maelstrom Arena. If you want to learn more about the Maelstrom Arena you can check out the Maelstrom Guide or the Maelstrom overview page.
