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 Necromancer class for Elder Scrolls Online. This build has crazy Single Target damage due to the burst setup we are using. There will also be a few options that you can run in terms of gear if you don’t have access to all of it. Our main setup consists of 5x Clever Alchemist, 5x New Moon Acolyte and Bloodspawn in heavy armor. This combination gives us a lot of resistance, health and burst damage if timed correctly.

  • Necromancer Class
  • Two Hander/ Dual Wield
  • Heavy Armor
  • Strong Single Target Damage
  • Powerful Burst
  • High Mitigation and Healing

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

Revamped the full setup to focus more on Single Target and burst damage.


Resource Management

A lot of our sustain is tied to Heavy Attacks. Because we use Heavy Armor we benefit from the passive Revitalize. The next important thing is that you always keep your Spirit Guardian 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 a Stamina Recovery enchantment to boost our Stamina Recovery numbers. 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! On this setup for the Champion Points campaign we are using the Lava Foot Soup and Saltrice food to give us a big Stamina Recovery and Max Stamina boost.

  • Heavy Attacks
  • Undead Confederate
  • Infused Stamina Recovery Glyph
  • Tri-Stat Potions
  • Lava Foot Soup and Saltrice

  • Executioner: Your execute, if an enemy is close to death, use this.
