Stamina Sorcerer PvP Build “Dot-Doc” Horns of the Reach
Table of Contents
Welcome to the Stamina Sorcerer PvP Build “Dot-Doc” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.
The Stamina Sorcerer PvP Build “Dot-Doc” is made for CP and No-CP Campaigns. It is a Heavy Armor Build focused on high pressure on the enemies with Damage over Time Effects. We have a lot of Damage over Time Effects like Blood Craze, Bloodthrist, Deadly Cloak, Hurricane, Endless Hail, Rearming Trap and Poison Injection that keep the enemy busy and then we can finish them off with Draining Shot, Ballista or Dawnbreaker of Smithing. Rearming Trap helps a lot, most people can then not move out of our AoE damage and they have to take all the damage in their faces. Even the most tanky characters will have troubles keeping up with all the DoTs you put on them.
Abilities like Blood Craze, Critical Surge and Bloodthrist also heal you while you deal damage, sometimes I do not even use Vigor as those abilities already provide enough healing so I swap Vigor out for Dark Deal, which also heals when you activate the skill. We are using Dubious Camoran Thone with Bone Pirate (3 Jewelry 2 Body Pieces). This allows us to be in Heavy Armor, the second five piece set is Kvatch Gladiator, I really like the extra Heavy Attack damage on low Health Targets. For most targets its quite difficult to keep up with all the DoTs so you will get into execute range very fast. You can also utilize other sets like Ravager or Seventh Legion. Remember, the second five piece set is only active on our frontbar.

We are using Dubious Camoran Thone with Bone Pirate (3 Jewelry 2 Body Pieces). This allows us to still be in Heavy Armor so we benefit from Constitution and are we are also more tanky. I always use Heavy Attacks on this build. Dualwield Heavy Attacks are almost twice as fast as other Weapon Type Heavy Attacks. So we have insanely fast Heavy Attacks which also restore a lot of resources. On top of that you can also use Potions which will help a lot. If you like you could also use Dark Deal on your bars to gain some more sustain.
I recommend being a Redguard as it helps tremendously with sustain. I am currently using the Warrior Mundus Stone. However, if you want you could also use the Serpent Mundus Stone for more Stamina Recovery. You can also place Cost Reduction or Recovery Glyphs on your Jewelry if you feel like you do not have enough sustain. Experiement around and find your sweet spot!

Gear Setup 1 – 5x Bonepirate, 2x Valkyn, 5x Kvatch Gladiator (or Ravager/ Seventh Legion)
- Kvatch Gladiator worth it? I really like the extra Heavy Attack damage on low Health Targets. For most targets its quite difficult to keep up with all the DoTs so you will get into execute range very fast. You can also utilize other sets like Ravager or Seventh Legion. Remember, the second five piece set is only active on our frontbar.
- Valkyn Skoria? Combined with all the Damage over Time effects this set procs a lot, also this set does insane damage and helps killing off targets with eaze.
- Infused vs Impenetrable? I like to run Infused on the big pieces as it gives us way more resources. In No-CP PvP most people do not have a lot of crit so it does not really matter whether we use Infused or Impen. In the CP Campaign it we have Championpoints that help us with more critical resistance. If you want more Impenetrable, go for it.
- Full Weap Damage on Jewelry? Adjust this to your liking, if you think you benefit more from a Cost Reduction or Recovery Glyph, go for it. You need to feel comfortable with your sustain.
- Maelstrom Bow? If you do not have access to a Mealstrom bow, then you can use a Kvatch Gladiator Bow Infused with a Forst Damage Enchantment to damage and debuff the enemy.
- Heavy Armor: Make sure to have 5 Heavy Armor pieces. You need to have 2 Bone Pirate Medium Armor Pieces, so everything else needs to be in Heavy Armor, Monster Set included.

Skills for PvP
- Overload Bar? You could use Overload on the 3rd bar if you want. I usually do not use it because it makes you vulnerable. Plus I like to burst down enemies so no time for barswapping a hundred times.
- Draining Shot: Apply all your Other DoTs and then use this, most people will amost die immediately as they get CCed and all the DoTs hit them, plus it gives you a huge heal.
- Vigor vs Dark Deal: Depeneding on whether you run with a healer or not, you can swap out Vigor with Dark Deal for more sustain. You could also slot Dark Deal instead of Rearming Trap for example.
