Welcome to the Stamina Dragonknight Tank Build PvP “Gladiator” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.

The Stamina Dragonknight Build PvP “Gladiator” is a Heavy Armor focused build. It is very tanky and focuses on Ultimate regeneration. Basically impossible to kill if you fight versus only one or two enemies as we can easily permablock and heal. The trick here is that we are using Blood Spawn Monster Set, Hide of the Werewolf Set, Heroic Slash for Minor Heroism and Mountains Blessing passive help us all with gaining Ultimate faster then usual. In defensive situations you want to use the Spell Wall Sword & Board Ultimate. It basically makes you invincible, for offensive situations we are using Take Flight which deals a ton of damage. I recommend playing in a small group with this build. Seventh Legion Brute makes us a lot tankier as we both get weapon damage to increase our heals and every time someone hits us we also receive healing.

  • Heavy Armor
  • Very tanky build
  • Good Damage output
  • Sword and Shield & Two Hander
  • Playable in CP Campaign and NO CP Campaign
  • Decent Resource Pool
  • Strong Healing
  • Crazy Sustain

Changes from the previous version

Updated and added new CP. Updated Passive section. This build received a small buff because block cost is cheaper now!

Resource Management

There is quite a few things that factor into resource management. First off, we have one of the most powerful tools called Battle Roar, which is a great passive that restores resources when we activate an ultimate. Then We als do use Blood Spawn Monster set which helps indirectly with sustain, because it has a chance to give us 14 Ultimate points back, believe me it will almost always proc on cooldown in pvp because we get hit by so much things. Helping Hands is another passive that helps with our sustain, every time we activate an Earthen Heart ability this passive procs and returns almost 1k Stamina. Heavy Attacks are one of the most effective ways to constantly return Stamina, plus they also deal a huge amount of damage. Having so fast Ultimate regeneration combined with all those Dragonknight passives, allows us to basically permablock and still not run out of stamina, this is even easier if you have an Argonian with the Resourceful passive.

If you are planning on running on the NO CP Campaign you can change a Weapon Damage Glyph to Block Cost reduction and the second one to Stamina Skill cost reduction, otherwise you might run into sustain issues.
