This ESO build is heavily focused on stacking spell damage as much as possible which will pay off with its results giving really nice numbers for end game content(Trials, Vet DSA, Vet Maelstrom Arena, Vet WGT, Vet ICP).

Yes I know there plenty of such builds for Sorcerers around but what I’m gonna show with this post is how to make the most of it. You can achieve crazy stats with it but on the other hand it is heavily dependent on your group (specially your healer) and how are they providing support so you won’t have issues at all.

Resources management is pretty damn hard without your group help, so having Mystic Orbs and Elemental Drain and perhaps siphon spirit running will eliminate this downside and you will have easy time hitting good numbers with no magicka issues.

PS: I recommend everyone interested in elder scrolls online builds should checkout ESO Mastery Guides. Here is one of their best posts: PvE DPS Sorcerer Build For ESO

We gonna go through different aspects as following:

  • Race
  • Attributes
  • Mundus Stone
  • Champion Points

Best Race For Sorcerers

As most of you know, High Elf (altmer) is the ideal race for magicka sorcerers due to the awesome passives they have (Magicka regen + Max Magicka + 4% more elemental damage). But that doesn’t mean the end of the world, this build is still valid for any race and you will still hit really good numbers. Breton orDark Elf (dunmer) are your second choice for the max magicka bonuses.

Best Attributes For Sorcerers

I have all my 64 attribute points into Magicka. and I barely hit the 17k hp on my Destro staff bar. You might gonna need to invest some points into HP if you lack CP. usually 18k is high enough for end game content as a DD with low amount of CP and 17k hp if you have a decent amount of CP.

Best Mundus Stones For Sorcerers

The thief and the shadow mundus stones got buffed in this patch quite a lot, either of these mundus stones should be your choice as DPS. I personally prefer the thief which gives a lot more crit chance over the crit damage buff from the shadow stone. The reason of that is this build is heavily dependent on Overload, so there wont be so much skills to use when overloading which means crit chance will definitely be the main reason to hit good numbers. You gonna need as much crit hits from overload as possible.
