Stamina Sorcerer Build PvE “Windwalker” – Dragon Bones DLC

Table of Contents

Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Sorcerer Build PvE “Windwalker” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Stam Sorc Windwalker build is optimized for Trials, Dungeons & Maelstrom Arena.

Stamina Sorcerers have very strong AoE and Single Target damage. Combining Redguard with Bound Armaments skill also gives us a huge stamina pool compared to other setups. We are doing a few heavy attacks each rotation, as we really want to be able to sustain, plus we also gain some extra damage from Bound Armaments on our Heavy Attacks. The rotation is pretty fast paced and most skills have different durations so its pretty difficult to keep up all the DoTs.

  • Medium Armor
  • Dualwield & Bow setup
  • Highe Single Target (ST) damage
  • High Area of Effect (AoE) damage
  • Heavy Attack/ Light Attack rotation
  • Good sustain
  • Maximum damage
  • Trials, Dungeon & Maelstrom

Changes from the previous version

Optimized the CP for this setup and added the new extra CP. Changed the mainsetup to Strength of the Automaton & Vicious Serpent combo, changed traits and type of Weapons and added a huge variety of good Stamina sets, also updated passive Section and Maelstrom Section.

Resource Management

Your main source of sustain is Heavy Attacks which are done on the front bar. I recommend being a Redguard because you will get the best sustain. Other than that make sure to use Vicious Serpent in Dungeons and Raids to help with sustain.

  • Heavy Attacks resource return
  • Vicious Serpent Set
  • Redguard (if available)

Trials & Dungeons Setup

Weapon Power Potion, Weapon Damage Enchantments and Hurricane were active when I took the screenshot. I was wearing an Outfit here, that is why you cannot see Velidreth Monster 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 beginner

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential of the Windwalker build. All the gear here is either craftable or cheap to get in a guildstore. Make sure to ask a friend to craft Hunding’s Rage and Night Mother’s Gaze. Agility jewelry can be obtained in the Guildstores. I do recommend having around 18k health (with buff-food). You can buy cheap Agility jewelry with healthy trait to reach this value.

Rotation & Skeleton Parse

Apply Hurricane on cooldown, so when its about to run out. If you reapply Hurricane, I only do 1 Heavy Attack > Shrouded Dagger instead of two times in the rotation.

Endless Hail > Light Attack > Rearming Trap > Light Attack > Poison Injection > Light Attack > Razor Caltrops > Weapon Swap
Heavy Attack > Rending Slashes > Heavy Attack > Shrouded Dagger > Heavy Attack > Shrouded Dagger > Light Attack > Deadly Cloak > Weapon Swap
Restart

Skeleton Parse

Keep in mind, I adjusted the setup slighty, I used the Lover Mundus instead of the Warrior Mundus to increase dps on Skeleton.

Maelstrom Arena

Gear

  • No Vicious Weapons? What you can do is run Vicious Serpent full on Jewelry & Body and use Hundings Rage with Weapons.
