Welcome to the Stamina Necromancer Build PvE “Reaper” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Reaper Build is optimized for Trials, Dungeons, Arena and Overland.

Necromancers have access to a lot of stamina abilities which is great. The gear that we are using will also allow us to pull crazy high numbers and there are also several gear setups in case you don’t have all the gear. There are nice Stamina based Necromancer abilities that we use such as: Detonating Siphon, Blighted Blastbones, Skeletal Archer and the Ultimate Pestilent Colossus.

It is the first class to have that many Stamina abilities built in which makes it quite unique to play compared to most other Stamina based setups. It is currently also one of the strongest setups that you can play in the game!

  • Necromancer Class
  • High Burst Damage
  • High Single Target damage
  • High AoE Damage
  • Good Sustain
  • Dual Wield & Bow Setup
  • Trials, Dungeon & Arenas

Gear for the Stamina Necromancer Build

You will find 3 different setups here. Setup 1 is the preferred setup. For people that do not have all the gear yet can use the Setup 2 which is easier to obtain and beginners can use Setup 3.

  • Setup 1 is with Trial Gear
  • Setup 2 is without Trial Gear
  • Setup 3 is for Beginners

There are a lot of good Stamina Sets available, you can find more viable stamina dps sets in this Stamina DPS Sets Article. I also elaborate on specific sets that are often used in this article to give you a bit more insight as to why they are used.

Gear Setup 3 Beginner – Stamina Necromancer Build

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential. All the gear here is either craftable or cheap to get in a guildstore.

Make sure to ask a friend to craft Hunding’s Rage and Night Mother’s Gaze. Agility jewelry can be obtained in the Guildstores. I do recommend having around 18k health (with buff-food). You can buy cheap Agility jewelry with healthy trait to reach this value if you want.

Important Info for Stamina Necromancer Build PvE

In this section of the ESO Stamina Necromancer Build we are going to take a look at Buff-food, Mundus Stone, Potions, Poisons, Passives and Attributes you should use.

All these things are important, I will give you one example to showcase how fast you can lose power. Often players forget to use/activate the Medicinal Use passive. Therefore the player won’t be able to have a 100% uptime on his potions, which means he will lose a lot of weapon damage, weapon critical and resources.

Buff-food

On Necromancer you can either use full pare food (Lava Foot Soup) or the more balanced ones such as Artaeum or Dubious.

Artaeum Takeaway Brooth (Max Health+Max Stamina+Stamina Recovery+Health Recovery)
or
Dubious Camoran Throne (2nd option if Artaeum is too expensive)

Artaeum buff food ESO Stamina Dragonknight Build Group DPS Meta

Food buff dubious camoran throne

Lava Foot Soup and Saltrice
(Saltrice, Flour, Potato, Scrib Jelly)

Food buff for Stamina Necromancer Build ESO

Mundus Stone

The Shadow (Increased Critical Damage)

Race

Any race with stamina based perks works for this setup. If you want a complete overview of all races and racial passives, then I recommend checking out the ESO Races Overview page.

Orc
Khajiit
Dark Elf
Nord
Redguard
Wood Elf
Imperial
High Elf

Potions

Weapon Crit Potions 
(Weap dmg, Weap Crit, Stamina)
(Blessed Thistle, Dragonthorn, Wormwood)

Poisons

Damage Health Poison
(Damage Poison, Damage Poison)
(Fleshfly Larva, Nightshade, Nirnroot)

double health poisons

Passives for the Stamina Necromancer Build

Below you can find a full list of all the recommended passives for the Stamina Necromancer Build.

Attributes

0 Health, 64 Stamina, 0 Magicka


Resource Management

Keeping up the Skeletal Archer will allow you to have the Undead Confederate passive up a 100% of the time to benefit from the 200 Stamina Recovery.

Thanks to the Last Gasp passive we can use Lava Foot Soup and Saltrice Food and put 20 points into our Health attribute. That way we loose a little bit of health and stamina but gain around 200 extra Stamina Recovery, which we really need.

Energy Orb will always be present in a good group. When you get close to the Orb you can activate its synergy to regain resources.

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

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

  • Undead Confederate
  • Lava Foot Soup and Saltrice Food
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Potions

Rotation for the Stamina Necromancer Build

Prebuff with: Skeletal Archer and Blighted Blastbones

Deadly Cloak: Always keep this up a 100% of the time.

Main rotation:

Barbed Trap > LA > Endless Hail > LA > Skeletal Archer > Weapon Swap

LA > BB > LA > 2x Shrouded Daggers > LA > BB > LA > 2x Shrouded Daggers (with LA)  > LA > BB > LA > 2x Shrouded Daggers (with LA) > LA > BB > 2x Shrouded Daggers (with LA) > Weapon Swap
