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 and Executioner. 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.

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 Streak.

bewitched sugar skills food

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

Food buff

Mundus Stone

The Warrior (Increased Weapon Damage)

Race

All stamina based races work. More about each race can be found on the racial overview page.

Orc
Redguard
Imperial
Wood Elf
Khajiit
Nord
Argonian
High Elf

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)

Essence of Health Potion ESO

Crown Tri-Restoration Potion 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 , we are going to swap out one of the Weapon Damage glyphs with a Stamina Recovery glyph.
