“Deathstroke”

Elsweyr Chapter

Table of Contents

Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Sorcerer 2H Build PvE “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 & Trials.

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.

  • 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 & Trial Build

Changes from the previous version

  • Changed gear and skill setup layout of the build.
  • Carve is now used because it got buffed and deals a lot of damage. Therefore I moved the Hurricane to the backbar.
  • Swapped back to Wrecking Blow, got changed to 1s channel and that way you do not have to get Psijic Skills.
  • I changed the Mundus Stone to Shadow to adhere the Trial setup.

Resource Management

Artaeum Takeaway Brooth is the new buff food that we use, to gain a lot of recovery to be able to do a light attack rotation. You also want to make sure that Spears or Orbs are used by your healers to activate the synergy for resources. I recommend being a Redguard because you will get the best sustain. You have more options, you can also use Stormfist as main Monster Set to gain another Stamina Recovery bonus or Vicious Serpent set. And you can be a Vampire stage 2 for the 10% extra Stamina Recovery.

  • Artaeum Takeaway Brooth
  • Orbs or Spears from Healers
  • Heavy Attacks resource return (optional)
  • Vicious Serpent Set (optional)
  • Redguard (if available)

Dungeons & Trial Setup

Gear

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

This setup is for new players. You want to craft 5x Hundings Rage with the weapon that you can later on use again, 4x Night Mother’s because it has nice stats and then Agility set for more max stamina and weapon damage, all of those are either craftable or cheap to find in the guildstores.
