[PvP + DPS] Magicka / Sorcerer – Black Beard’s Cannoneer

| Builder: @PathwayM | Class: Sorcerer | Race: Altmer | Style: PvP DPS | DiGX: Yes |


Black Beard’s Cannoneer was designed to provide a massive amount of AOE burst DPS. This build works by activating clever alchemist on its restoration staff bar, with a potion that grants immunity to disabling effects, and jumping into the middle of a group of enemies to annihilate them with the combination of proximity detonation, eye of the storm, and vicious death! Rest assured, this build is no one-trick pony; Pirate Skeleton, shields and a decent amount of stamina recovery provide enough staying power while surrounded by enemies to continue the blood bath!

Main Hand: Crystal Fragments, Crushing Shock, Endless Fury, Streak, Hardened Ward    Eye of the Storm

Offhand: Proximity Detonation, Healing Ward, Haunting Curse, Harness Magicka, Power Surge    Energy Overload

Overload: Dark Conversion, Volcanic Rune, Retreating Maneuver, Streak, Hardened Ward    Energy Overload

Potions & Food

This build’s primary potion, Essence of Immovability, provides us with both immunity to disabling effects and 10% spell critical rating which we lack elsewhere in this build. The second potion, Essence of Detection, provides us Stealth Detection which is primarily used to prevent nightblades from escaping. The food of choice is the Witchmother’s Potent Brew which is this build’s primary source of magicka recovery.


  • A charged restoration staff provides our lightning glyph a 65% chance to proc concussed with a single light attack; causing our opponent to take 8% more damage from all sources. The charged trait on our restoration staff also affects our destruction staff bar so all of the elemental damage on that bar will have a 220% higher chance to apply status effects… yeah… I know… crazy!
  • This build uses Vicious Death, Clever Alchemist, and Pirate Skeleton (2 pieces).
