Resource Management

We have already built in sustain with Artaeum Food and one stamina Recovery glyph. In human form Dark Deal is your best friend, you can transfer magicka into stamina. Heavy attacks are also always very powerful, especially in Werewolf because they restore extra resources from the Revitalize and Pursuit passive.

In addition, use your potions whenever you drop low on stamina or health, it can be a huge boost to your stats. But heavy attacks are definitely the number one sustain tool on this build.

Important Info for Stamina Sorcerer Werewolf Build PvP

Buff-food

You can either run Dubious Camoran Throne or the slightly more expensive version Artaeum Takeaway Brooth. Both work for the setup. Just keep in mind that the Artaeum food has nice health recovery which works well together with the Steed Mundus Stone and Troll King!

Race

All stamina based races work with this setup.

Orc (Recommended)
Redguard
Imperial
Woodelf
Khajiit
Argonian

Potions

Werewolf gets Major Brutality from Hiricine's Fortitude and Major Savagery from Ferocious Roar. Thus we can use Tri-Stat potion which will increase our overall sustain the most. You can also use crown Tri-Stat potions if you want.

Poisons

Poisons are important, they add a lot of single target pressure to the enemy.

Werewolf

Werewolf has the strongest burst potential of all setups. However, most people do not correctly utilize Werewolf and end up dead on the ground. I will list up the most important information regarding when and how you should use Werewolf, because that is where most people actually make the mistakes.

You can also find a very detailed Werewolf Guide here. All basics and advanced mechanics and more are explained there.

Burst

Werewolf Form should be used for Burst Damage only. For example if you have a very tanky or almost unkillable target, its time to swap to Werewolf with all your human buffs pre applied and then pull off the right combo and the enemy will die. Once that’s done, do not stay too long in Werewolf Form, people will start focusing you and you also loose your buffs from human form.

Buffing

Always buff yourself up before you transform into a Werewolf. Most People stay too long in Werewolf Form and as a result loose all their Buffs they pre applied in Human form. Make sure not to stay too long in Werewolf Form, because once your buffs, especially Critical Surge, fall off, you will get weaker in terms of survivability.

Combos

Werewolf is strong because you can pull off insane combos. You have Light Attacks that apply bleeds, Claw of Life that applies a DoT and an infection which both deal damage and Claw of Life also heals you at the same time. Your Light Attacks are your main damage source, once you apply Claws of Life keep pressuring him with light attacks. Then when he drops low or you see that you have an opportunity, fear him with Deafening Roar, use Howl of Despair and keep the light attack spam up. That should kill most enemies, if not rinse and repeat.


Battlegrounds

For Battlegrounds we are changing our jewelry glyphs to focus more on sustain.
