Stamina Sorcerer Build PvE for Elder Scrolls Online

“Windwalker”

Wolfhunter DLC, Summerset Chapter

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 almost only Light Attacks with this rotation, as we also gain some extra damage from Bound Armaments on our Light Attack. Stamina Sorcerers have overall very high damage and shine in execute thanks to their auto execute.

  • 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

  • Updated Champion Points and optimized passive section.
  • Changed Enchantments & Traits. Due to the changes on how enchant works, we now use backbar Bow with infused poison enchantment, frontbar off-hand with infused weapon damage and main-hand nirnhoned with absorb stamina enchantment.
  • I also made an option to use two Daggers instead of 1 Axe and 1 Dagger, this is to eliminate RNG and higher weapon crit will be more beneficial for example on trash pulls in trials and dungeons.
  • Optimized Gear Setups, it now follows the rule of 1,2,3
    • Setup 1 is with Trial Gear
    • Setup 2 is without Trial Gear
    • Setup 3 is for Beginners
  • Optimized Maelstrom Setup

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.

Trials & Dungeons Setup

Gear

There is a lot of good Stamina Sets available, the Gear Setup 1 will represent the best setup for most situations. Here are some good Stamina Sets:

Gear Setup 1

  • Monster Set: I recommend using Stormfist for the extra Stamina Recovery. However, you can also use Selene or Velidreth.

This setup is for those that did not have the chances yet to step into a trial.

  • Briarheart Dagger: There is an unique Dagger “Materre’s Bodkin” that you can get fairly easy, instead of buying it expensive in the store.

Gear Setup 3 Beginner

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential. 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 if you want.

Passives

Rotation & Skeleton Parse

Apply Hurricane on cooldown, so when its about to run out. If you reapply Hurricane, do one Crushing Weapon less in the rotation. With this rotation here we use Rearming Trap on the frontbar, that way we have more uptime on the frontbar.

> Endless Hail > Light Attack > Rearming Trap > Light Attack > Poison Injection > Light Attack > Razor Caltrops > Weapon Swap

> Light Attack > Rending Slashes > Light Attack > 5x Crushing Weapon (with Light Attacks) > Light Attack > Rearming Trap > Weapon Swap
> Light Attack > > Endless Hail > Light Attack > Poison Injection > Light Attack > Razor Caltrops > Weapon Swap
Restart

Activate Hurricane once it run out. If you want to make the rotation simpler, you could activate hurricane every rotation and do 1 Crushing Weapon less.

Skeleton Parse

I used different food to make up for no Shards/ Bubbles during raids. That is why the health is that low in this video.
