This beginner build for the Stamina Sorcerer class in The Elder Scrolls Online is a great place to get started. This build focuses on Dual Wield and Two-Handed skills and includes lots of Damage Over Time!
Our main 5 piece set on this build is Hexos Ward, a medium armor set from the Deadlands zone which provides a lot of great survivability, especially if you want to play solo. Wretched Vitality is also especially good on the Stamina Sorcerer as it allows us to EASILY maintain both Stamina and Magicka skills by providing plenty of sustain. Armor Of The Trainee can also be used in any remaining two slots for some nice stat bonuses.
For alternatives players can also take advantage of basic damage sets like Spriggan’s Thorns or Briarheart as well basic sustain sets like Eternal Vigor. I recommend using the Level Up Rewards weapons (Prophet’s Bow, Prohpet’s Dagger, etc.) to make up the remaining 2 open gear slots.
Sample Gear Loadout
|Main Hand||Armor Of The Trainee Daggers||Precise / Sharpened||NA||Damage Poisons|
|Backup||Armor Of The Trainee Two Hander||Infused||NA||Weapon/Spell Damage|
|Necklace||Hexos Ward||Robust||NA||Weapon Damage|
|Ring 1||Hexos Ward||Robust||NA||Stamina Recovery|
|Ring 2||Hexos Ward||Robust||NA||Stamina Recovery|
Most of our skills cost Stamina to cast, so putting all Attribute Points into Stamina will be the most effective.
Consumables, Race, Mundus
Orc or Dark Elf will be a strong choice for this set up if you want as much damage as possible. If you are considering doing some PVP I also recommend Nord for the extra resistances and ultimate generation.
