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.

This Stamina Sorcerer PvP Build is a heavy armor build that can take quite a few punches before breaking down. We have high mobility, insane burst damage and good resource management. Having Hurricane, Quick Cloak and being an Orc gives us a 50% speed boost if we really need it which is really nice.

Burst damage comes from a combination of Dizzying Swing, Dawnbreaker of Smiting Ultimate, Executioner and our sets such as Clever Alchemist, New Moon Acolyte and Balorgh. Damage mitigation comes from heavy armor, Hurricane and Spectral 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.

  • Cyrodiil & Battlegrounds
  • Heavy Armor 2H + Dual Wield
  • High Mobility
  • Strong Healing

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.

Important Info for Stamina Sorcerer Build PvP

Buff-food

Preferably you want to use the Bewitched Sugar Skulls. They give us overall really nice max resources. Especially Max Magicka is nice because we have a lot of support abilities such as Dark Deal that we constantly use and also An error occurred retrieving the skill data

bewitched sugar skills food

(Optional) If you want more sustain you could also use Artaeum or Dubious Camoran Throne

Food buff

Mundus Stone

The Warrior (Increased Weapon Damage)

Race

All stamina based races work, I prefer an Orc nonetheless due to the extra 258 Weapon Damage, 2000 Stamina, 1000 Health and extra movement speed which works well together with the other speed buffs that we have in this build.

Orc (Recommended)
Redguard
Imperial
Woodelf
Khajiit
Argonian

Potions

Tri-Stat Potions are by far the best option you have for this setup to boost all your primary resources. You can use the crafted or the crown store version.

Tri-Stat Potion
(Health, Stamina, Magicka)
(Bugloss, Columbine, Mountain Flower)

Tri-Stat Potions new ESO

Tri-Stat Crown Potions ESO

Poisons

I highly recommend running Poisons on the Dual Wield bar, those poisons help root the enemy and also drain stamina.

Escapist Poison
(Immobilize, Speed reduction, Drain Stamina)
(Blessed Thistle, Columbine, Namiras Rot)

Passives


Battlegrounds

The only thing we are changing is our jewelry. Instead of 2 Weapon Damage and 1 Stamina Recovery, we are going to run 2 Stamina Recovery and 1 Stamina Cost reduction glyph.

In Battlegrounds you can run The Serpent Mundus Stone, that way you will have some more Stamina Recovery.
