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

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

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

Overview

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.


Notes

  • 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).

[PVP + DPS] Stamina/Nightblade – Doctor Sneaky Poison Hammer Pants

[PVP + DPS] Stamina/Nightblade – Doctor Sneaky Poison Hammer Pants

| Builder: @Gankimus| Class: Nightblade| Race: Khajiit | Style: PvP DPS | DiGX: Yes |

Overview

With a PhD in Rektology, the good Doctor skillfully employs speed with maneuverability on the battlefield to stay alive and finish targets. Focusing on flexibility and stealthy movement, his medium gear is Well-Fitted for peak dodge rolling and running performance, providing Dr. Pants with some very strong escape or ganking options. Maximize damage by stacking abilities and managing procs with timed bar swaps. This build works well in traffic but really shines when surprising some fools out of stealth with all the goodies stacked.

Main Hand: Radiant Mage Light, Poison Injection, Relentless Focus, Razor Caltrops, Piercing Mark    Toxic Barrage

Offhand: Rally, Surprise Attack, Critical Rush, Dark Cloak, Resolving Vigor    Onslaught


Potions & Food

The Doctor carries a full bag filled with all manner of tonics and restoratives to help him cope with life’s difficult circumstances.  Liberal consumption of Immovability potions keeps Dr Pants mobile and having Invisibility handy for a timely escape when the going gets rough ensures that “Sneaky” is  more than just a fancy title.  Keep your resources regenerating with purple drink and you have a versatile build that allows you to get in  and out of a fight quickly with deadly effect.


Notes

  • To maximize results drink potions while on the 2h bar in order to proc your Clever Alchemist buff, and then to switch to the bow bar to proc Sheer Venom.
  • If looking for greater survivability consider flexing in Monster sets such as Troll King (Health Regen) or Pirate Skeleton (Resist).
  • Some possible skills to consider swapping in and out depending on circumstances include the following: Mass Hysteria, Shuffle (Skills), Dawn Breaker of Smiting, Bolstering Darkness, Incapacitating Strike (Ultimates).
  • This build uses Clever Alchemist, Sheer Venom, Molag Kena (1 piece), and Velidreth (1 piece).
  • This work drew inspiration from @onetrvth’s Toxic Avenger build.
[PvP + DPS] Magicka / Sorcerer – The Gladiator

[PvP + DPS] Magicka / Sorcerer – The Gladiator

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

Overview

The Gladiator was designed to provide an incredible amount of staying power by addressing the stamina management weakness Magicka Sorcerers face.  This build’s 1426 stamina recovery provides us with a never ending fountain of stamina that is used for three things: breaking free from crowd control effects, dodge rolling, and casting Dark Conversion to replenish both magicka and health.  Between the gear traits and champion point investment, the Gladiator has the same amount of dodge roll and sprint cost reduction as a player in seven pieces of medium armor, 28%.

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

Offhand: Dark Conversion, Healing Ward, Haunting Curse, Harness Magicka, Power Surge    Absorption Field


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 a champion 150 purple triple-stat food, Longfin Pasty with Melon Sauce for example, which provides us with the necessary stamina for breaking free and dodge rolling.


Notes

  • 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 elemental damage on that bar will have a 220% higher chance to apply status effects… yeah… I know… crazy!.
  • This build uses Amber Plasm, The Willpower Set, and Pirate Skeleton (2 piece).
