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 good overall damage. However, sustaining it is a bit difficult compared to other setups. But with the right setup this will also be no problem! Combining Redguard together 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 paces and most skills have different durations so its pretty difficult to keep up all the DoTs. If you want some extra healing you could use Critical Surge which heals for crazy amounts!

  • Medium armor
  • Dualwield & Bow setup
  • Highest single target (ST) damage
  • High area of effect (AoE) damage
  • Heavy Attack/ Light Attack rotation
  • Good sustain
  • Maximum damage
  • Trials, Dungeon & Maelstrom

Resource Management

There is a few things that help with sustain. I found it useful to use the Dubious Camoran Throne drink to get some decent Stamina Recovery and mix it up with a few Heavy Attacks in our rotation,just make sure to adjust your Health to about 17,2k. 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.

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

Trials & Dungeons Setup

Stamina Sorcerer Build PvE


Gear

Gear Setup 1

  • Twice Fanged vs Spriggan: In case you do not have access to Twice Fanged Serpent set, you could also run Spriggan, all the armor and weapon pieces can be bought via Guildstore, so it is easier to get, especially the weapons!
  • What pieces? It does not matter how you allocate the pieces, as long as you manage to get 5x Twice Fanged Serpent, 5x Vicious Serpent, 2x Mephala or Velidreth with a Maelstrom Bow on the backbar.
  • Infused Weapon? With the new CP we can get quite a lot Penetration through Piercing with only a few points and make up for it on the Weapon. This boosts the Weapon Damage enchantment by a lot and reduces the cooldown of it, its worth it! Also it reduces the chance of overpenetrating the target.
  • Vicious ophidian? If you want better sustain, you could use Vicious Serpent set.
  • Briarheart vs Hundings? Briarheart might actually be slightly stronger then Hundings Rage if you are using those sets on Weapon pieces. Very small difference tho so Hundings Rage is definitely easier accessible due to it being craftable.
  • Maelstrom Bow what trait? I found that Infused performed best, but the difference between Infused, Precise or Nirnhoned is less then 1-2%, so use what you have.
  • Stormfist? I like to run Stormfist on Stamina Sorcerer because it gives us some extra stamina recovery and the damage proc also deals pretty good damage plus it can also proc the shock implosion on Sorcerer which is even more damage.

Gear alt

  • Not enough sustain? In case you do think you lack sustain, make sure to use 1x Glyph of reduced skillcost on your jewelry. That should be enough to gain enough sustain.
  • Damage? This setup gets very close to the damage of the Best in Slot setup. The only thing is that you will not boost your group members dps.

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 Venom 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.

  • Why a Heavy Chest? This will give you some extra protection, so you will take less damage and when you already have undaunted passive, then you will also gain slightly more health.
