Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Sorcerer Build PvP “Creeve” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. This build is made for Cyrodiil and Battlegrounds.

The Stamina Sorcerer PvP Build is a heavy armor build that can take quite a few punches. We have high mobility, insane burst damage and good resource management on this Stamina Sorcerer build. Having Hurricane, Quick Cloak and being an Orc gives us an additional 55% speed boost which will make you the fastest player on the battlefield.

Burst damage comes from a combination of skills like Dizzying Swing, Dawnbreaker of Smiting Ultimate, Executioner and our sets such as Clever AlchemistNew Moon Acolyte and Balorgh. Damage mitigation comes from heavy armor, Hurricane and Quick Cloak. Sustain is mostly tied to Potions, Heavy Attacks and Dark Deal, that is also the reason why we have quite a lot of Max Magicka compared to other pvp builds.

  • Cyrodiil & Battlegrounds
  • Heavy Armor 2H + Dual Wield
  • High Mobility
  • Strong Healing
  • Crazy High Mitigation
  • Good Sustain
  • High Burst Damage

Resource Management

Resource management is fairly easy on this setup once you get used to it. Your main resource tool is Dark Deal which both gives Stamina and Health in exchange for Magicka, we got plenty of Magicka so we will always have resources to trade.

On top of that you can also do Heavy Attacks and use Potions in the right moments to boost your resources.


Cyrodiil PvP Setup

5x Alchemist, 5x New Moon Acolyte, 2x Balorgh on an Orc with Bewitched Sugar Skulls.
