Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Necromancer Build PvP “Bloodrush” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Bloodrush Build is optimized for Cyrodiil.

The Bloodrush Build features the new Necromancer class for Elder Scrolls Online. Crazy burst damage paired with high resistance and good sustain. We are using a very offensive setup with Warrior's FurySeventh Legion Brute and Balorgh which allows us to get ridiculous Weapon Damage numbers when we are fully buffed! We also use the Titanic Cleave to gain a lot of cleave and AoE damage in general with this setup that helps fight against several targets.

  • Necromancer Class
  • Cyrodiil Group Build
  • Two Hander/ Sword & Board
  • Heavy Armor
  • Strong AoE Damage
  • Strong Healing
  • Powerful Burst

In case you don’t know what what weaving light attacks is, make sure to check out the “Weaving Beginner Guide” which explains how to weave light attacks between abilities, aka animation canceling.


Changes from the previous version

Updated the build and also added a battlegrounds setup.


Resource Management

A lot of our sustain is tied to Heavy Attacks. Because we use Heavy Armor we benefit from the passive Revitalize. You also want to make sure to use Heavy Attacks on the Sword & Board bar, because these Heavy Attacks are slightly faster then the Two Hander ones! The next important thing is that you always keep your Spirit Mender to gain damage mitigation and it also increases your Magicka and Stamina Recovery by 200 because of the Undead Confederate passive. We also run one infused necklace with cost reduction enchantment to make our stamina abilities cheaper. You also want to make sure to use Tri Stat Potions (check here), that way you can always pop a potion when you need it and you will regain all your stats, this can be a life saver! We also use a buff food that gives us more sustain, you can either use Dubious Camoran Throne or the slightly better but way more expensive Artaeum Brooth.

  • Heavy Attacks
  • Undead Confederate
  • Infused Cost Reduction Glyph
  • Tri-Stat Potions
  • Dubious Camoran Throne

Cyrodiil Setup

  • Unbuffed: Out of combat
  • Buffed: Major Brutality, Weapon Damage Enchant, Tri Stat Potion, Seventh Legion, Fury, Balorgh with 250 Ulti.

Gear

Gear Setup

  • 5-2 Setup: We are using a 5-2 setup, 5 pieces heavy and 2 medium.
  • No Master Weapons? If you do not have any Master Weapons, you could also use the Agility to gain some extra stats or simply use a Alchemist Two Hander.
  • Alchemist vs Seventh: You can also use Seventh Legion, it has a lot shorter uptime though keep that in mind.

Battlegrounds

In Battlegrounds Champion Points are deactivated, therefore we need to get our sustain from somewhere else. So we are using Bone Pirate’s Tatters to make up for the sustain loss. Monster Set choice for Battlegrounds is Blood Spawn, it will allow you to push out more ultimates and is also nice for resistances.
