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 1 – Stamina Sorcerer Build

This is the tier 1 setup for the Stamina Sorcerer Build that you should try to get, this is the most optimal setup to achieve high damage.

Gear Setup 2 – Stamina Sorcerer Build

This setup is for those that did not have the chances yet to step into a trial. You will deal slightly less damage than with the tier 1 setup, but not by much. Overall, the gear here is easier to get because you aren’t required to enter 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 – Stamina Sorcerer Build

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

Important Info for Stamina Sorcerer Build PvE

In this section of the ESO Stamina Sorcerer Build we are going to take a look at Buff-food, Mundus Stone, Potions, Poisons, Passives and Attributes you should use.

All these things are important, I will give you one example to showcase how fast you can lose power. Often players forget to use/activate the Medicinal Use passive. Therefore the player won’t be able to have a 100% uptime on his potions, which means he will lose a lot of weapon damage, weapon critical and resources.

Buff-food

If you do not have the money for Artaeum Takeaway Brooth, then you can also use Dubious Camoran Throne Drink.

Artaeum Takeaway Brooth (Max Health+Max Stamina+Stamina Recovery+Health Recovery)
or
Dubious Camoran Throne (2nd option if Artaeum is too expensive)

Artaeum buff food ESO Stamina Dragonknight Build Group DPS Meta

Food buff dubious camoran throne

Mundus Stone

The Thief Mundus Stone increases our overall Weapon Critical Rating which boosts our damage. For more information on Mundus Stones please visit the Mundus Stone Overview Page.

The Thief Mundus Stone (Increased Weapon Critical)

Race

Any race with stamina based perks works for this setup. If you want a complete overview of all races and racial passives, then I recommend checking out the ESO Races Overview page.

Resource Management for the Stamina Sorcerer Build

Energy Orb will always be present in a good group. When you get close to the Orb you can activate its synergy to regain resources.

Potions should always be used on cooldown to gain the maximum benefit from them.

Heavy Attacks help you restore Stamina, if you drop low on resources do a few Heavy Attacks between skills to refill your Stamina.

  • Orb Synergy
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Potions
  • Dark Deal

Optionally, you can also use Dark Deal to manage your resources better, in most cases that skill is overkill though.


Rotation for the Stamina Sorcerer Build

Please check out the “Weaving Beginner Guide” which explains how to weave light attacks between abilities, aka animation canceling. This is important to reach the maximum damage potential.

Prebuff with: Hurricane and Bound Armaments

Barbed Trap > LA > Endless Hail > LA > Hurricane > Weapon Swap

LA > 10x Shrouded Daggers (with LA) > Weapon Swap

Restart

Keep in mind, that in a real combat situations you might have to adjust your rotation.


Area of Effect Setup

Lets take a look at an AoE setup for the Stamina Sorcerer Build, this way you can be more effective when fighting trash packs or just a large amount of monsters.

Note: Dual Wield is often used for single target, whereas Two Hander is often used for AoE. Therefore, if you want to see an 2H AoE setup, please check out the 2H Stamina Sorcerer Build.
