Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Sorcerer Build PvE Two Hander “Deathstroke” 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 Sorcerer DPS 2H Build “Deathstroke” is optimized for Dungeons.

Stamina Sorcerers have insane passives which synergies very well with 2H setups. Sorcerers get 5% extra physical damage and they also have access to Implosion, which is basically an auto execute. On top of that they also have access to cheaper ultimates due to the passive Power Stone. You also have access to a powerful shield for trashfights, everytime you use the skill Brawler you get a 2500 shield and this increases for each enemy hit. The Master 2H and the Asylum 2H make this build even stronger, so I do recommend at least having one of those two weapons ready to go!

  • Two Hander & Bow setup
  • High single target (ST) damage
  • High area of effect (AoE) damage
  • Crazy splash damage
  • Master & Asylum 2H
  • Shield on trashfights
  • Dungeon Build

Changes from the previous version

Mechanical Acuity is now used as main set, Two Hander setups suffer from very low crit rating due to not having access to daggers like Dualwield that gives them 10% more crit. Mechanical Acuity solves this problem in some sort of way, giving us access to a way higher crit rating. Either frontbaring Acuity, so we are guaranteed crits when we use our strong abilities like Wrecking Blow or Reverse Slice, or put it on body and run a Master or Asylum 2H. Also optimized and added new CP, improved the Passive section. We also now use Greater Storm Atronach, he does more damage than Ballista, given that he can hit the target for the full duration. Also has a very powerful Synergy attached to it.

Resource Management

I prefer using Heavy Attacks on the frontbar combined with Wrecking Blow because those two boost each others damage quite well plus you get insanely strong splash damage on top. On the backbar I usually use light attacks to get back to the frontbar as fast as possible. You can also run Vicious Serpent set which helps a lot in terms of resource management. I recommend being a Redguard because you will get the best sustain. If you are using another Race then I recommend using one or two Stamina Recovery Glyphs to help out with the sustain. If you want you could use Dark Deal, which gives back a ton of stamina. The Camoran Throne Drink is also an option

  • Heavy Attacks resource return
  • Recovery Glyph
  • Dark Deal
  • Redguard (if available)
  • Dubious Cameron Throne Drink
  • Vicious Serpent set

Gear

There is a lot of good Stamina Sets available, the Gear Setup 1 will represent the best setup for most situations. I also have a list with a huge variety of combos here in the Stamina Optimization Article. Here are some good Stamina Sets:

Gear Setup 1

  • Master 2H vs Asylum 2H: Master 2H is a beast on trash, the damage the inital hit does on several mobs is insane. Asylum is really good during execute phase. I recommend using both in different situations.
  • Vicious Serpent vs Agility: If you only run 3 Vicious Serpent pieces on jewelry, it is better to swap to Agility, does slightly more damage.

Rotation

Rotation is quite simple. We only have Hurricane that does not really fit into the rotation perfectly. Reapply Hurricane whenever it runs out, it is important to let it run out, because the longer it lasts the more damage it does. If you need to reapply Hurricane, make sure to use Hurricane instead of a Wrecking Blow, this prevents you from loosing uptime on your backbar DoTs.

Rearming Trap > Light Attack > Endless Hail > Light Attack > Poison Injection > Light Attack > Razor Caltrops > Weapon Swap
Wrecking Blow > Heavy Attack > Wrecking Blow > Heavy Attack > Wrecking Blow > Light Attack > Brawler > Weapon Swap
Restart

Execute: Once you reach 25-30% Boss HP make sure to use Reverse Slice instead of Wrecking Blow.
