Stamina Sorcerer Build PvE “Windwalker” – 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

  • 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 Shrouded Dagger on the frontbar. You can still run Shrouded dagger if yo do not have access to Psijic Order or you want some AoE splash damage.
  • 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 3 Infused 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.
  • Bound Armaments now inreaeses Light Attack damage instead of Heavy Attack damage. And it is no more a toggle, therefore it can be slotted on one bar only.

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.

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. 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.

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.

Maelstrom Arena

Gear

Skills

The only thing we really need to change is that we add Critical Surge and Dark Deal.
