Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Sorcerer Werewolf Build PvP “Rage” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.

This Stamina Werewolf build is designed to be very tanky and have a lot of burst potential. We are using Warrior's Fury, Impregnable Armor and The Troll King. Because we are a Werewolf, we will get a lot of attention from the enemies, we are bigger than most characters and therefore an easy target to pick out of the crowd. People also focus Werwolfes because they can apply a lot of damage in a short duration, so players want to get rid of them as fast as possible. With our setup, we are very tanky due to crazy high crit resistance and a high health pool. In addition, having Troll King and a lot of extra base health recovery makes it even harder to kill us.

  • Dual Wield & Two Hander
  • Crazy Burst Damage
  • High Damage Mitigation
  • Good Heals
  • Good Sustain

Changes from the previous version

  • Bound Armaments: Reworked this ability into an offensive skill. Activating the ability no longer grants Block Mitigation for 3 seconds, but instead puts a 40 second duration effect on you that summons a Bound dagger any time you deal damage with a Light or Heavy Attack, with a maximum of 4 weapons being able to be active at any given time. Reactivating the ability causes the weapons to prime and quickly seek your target after a short delay. The ability continues to passively increase your Maximum Stamina and damage dealt with Light Attacks.
  • Infectious Claws:
    • This ability and its morphs now immediately apply the Diseased status effect to enemies hit, and do Disease Damage rather than a hybrid of Physical and Disease Damage.
    • Decreased the damage per tick of these abilities by approximately 10%.
      • Claws of Life (morph): This morph now heals for 100% of the damage caused, instead of 50%. This will still result in an overall reduction, since the base damage has been reduced.
  • Werewolf Transformation: Fixed many issues where this ability could persist without meeting the proper requirements.
    • Werewolf Berserker (morph): Decreased the damage per tick of the bleed applied from this morph by approximately 24%.

Resource Management

We have already built in sustain with Artaeum Food and one stamina cost reduction 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.

  • Artaeum Food
  • Cost Reduction Glyph
  • Dark Deal
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Potions

PvP Setup

  • Unbuffed: Out of combat
  • Buffed: Werewolf, Major Brutality, Major Savagery, Fury procs, Potion and Troll King were active, Orc with Artaeum food.

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 races work with this build.

Orc (Recommended)
Redguard
Imperial
Woodelf
Khajiit

Potions

Because we get Major Brutality from Hircine's Rage we can actually use these potions here, to gain an extra 10% weapon crit from Major Savagery.

Essence of Weapon Critical Potion
(Speedbuff ,Stamina, CC Immunity)
(Water Hyacinth, Columbine, Dragonthorn)

If you want the extra magicka, I recommend using Tri-Stat Potions.

(Health, Stamina, Magicka)
(Bugloss, Columbine, Dragonthorn)

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

In Battlegrounds Champion Points are deactivated, therefore we will have lower max resources and less sustain. We are changing one of the sets + buff food to get higher stamina recovery and also change the Mundus Stone.
