Stamina Sorcerer 2H Build PvE “Deathstroke” – Summerset Chapter

Table of Contents


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.

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

  • Optimized the Champion Points. We now use 5 Relequen, 5 Berserking Warrior and two Monster set pieces (Velidreth, Stormfist or Selene). Relequen is a new set that drops in Cloudrest. Berserking is a old set that drops in Hel Ra Citadel, it is a Heavy Armor set, so you need to run it on Jewelry + Weapons. Berserking Warrior gives us an permanent 9% extra Weapon Critical on the front bar and we can keep this up as long as we damage the enemy.
  • In addition, we now use a Light Attack rotation now that Light Attacks got buffed and Heavy Attacks got nerfed. This speeds up the pace of the rotation, which is a good thing! We also use a new buff food called Water-Stained Psijic Food, which is basically the counterpart to Clockwork Citrus Filet.
  • We use Crushing Weapon instead of Wrecking Blow on the frontbar. You can still run Wrecking Blow if you do not have access to Summerset.
  • Instead of the Warrior, we now use the Lover Mundus Stone in raids, due to the nerfs to NMG and Sunder we had to find another way to get penetration.
  • We now also use 2 Infused and 1 Bloodthristy Jewelry trait instead of Robust. The difference between Robust and Infused is very small but Infused is slightyl better.
  • Rotation also changed, because Berserking Warrior has a 5s duration, we only want to stay on the backbar for tops 4,5s. So we moved as many skills tho the frontbar as possible, to increase uptime there.
  • Instead of a Nirnhoned Weapon we now use Infused Weapon with a Weapon Damage Enchantment, gave a bit better results.

Resource Management

Water-Stained Psijic Food (Or Dubious Camoran Throne Drink) 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.

Dungeons & Trial Setup

Weapon Power Potion, Berserking Warrior and Weapon Damage Enchantment were active when I took the screenshot. Gearsetup 1 with Stormfist


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.

(Blessed Thistle, Dragonthorn, Wormwood)


Damage Health Posion
(Damage Poison, Damage Poison)

In case you are still unsure on how to mix the ingredients together, you can check out a alchemy simulator here: Alchemy Simulator.


  • Dark Magic: All passives
  • Daedric Summoning: All passives
  • Storm Calling: All passives
  • Two Hander: All passives
  • Bow: All passives
  • Heavy Armor: Juggernaunt Passive
  • Medium Armor: All Passives
  • Fighters Guild: All
  • Undaunted: All
  • Racial: All
  • Alchemy: Medicinal Use
  • Psijic Order: All


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.

> Endless Hail > Light Attack > Razor Caltrops > Light Attack > Poison Injection > Weapon Swap
> Light Attack > Rearming Trap > Light Attack > 6x Crushing Weapon (with Light Attack) > Weapon Swap
> Restart

  • If you have to reapply Hurricane, use 5x instead of 6x Crushing Weapon.
  • Execute: Once you reach 25-30% Boss HP make sure to use Reverse Slice instead of Crushing Weapon.

Skeleton Parse

Keep in mind, the build may slightly differ, the parse is from the PTS Summerset.
