Overview



Attributes



Stamina: 64



Maximum Magicka: 13021

Maximum Health: 30702

Maximum Stamina: 29860



Magicka Recovery: 767

Health Recovery: 1020

Stamina Recovery: 2249



Spell Damage: 4984

Spell Critical: 16.4%

Spell Penetration: 7694



Weapon Damage: 7816

Weapon Critical: 36.4%

Physical Penetration: 7694



Spell Resistance: 27493

Critical Resistance: 2869



Physical Resistance: 24853



Race: Wood Elf



Wood Elf brings a lot to the table for most Stamina characters, giving you a nice balance between damage, sustain, and mobility. As a Wood Elf, you get 950 extra Penetration on top of 2K Stamina, which is an excellent addition to your damage output. You also get 5% movement speed and 258 Stamina recovery for your mobility and resource management, along with some extra Disease and Poison Resistance and detection radius.



Dark Elf and Orc also work well for this build, but neither has the sustain options a Wood Elf does.



Mundus Stone: The Lover



The Lover gives extra Penetration, boosting your overall damage output by a lot.



You can also run The Warrior for even more Weapon Damage, and it will boost both your damage output and healing power from Resolving Vigor. But The Lover gives the most overall boost to your raw damage.



Food: Artaeum Takeaway Broth



Although a little pricy, Artaeum Takeaway Broth is the most versatile option that gives you great stats with extra Health, Stamina, Health Recovery, and Stamina recovery. If it's too expensive for you, you could use the Dubious Camoran Throne, which would work perfectly fine.



Potion: Essence of Speed

Essence of Speed gives Major Expedition, Major Brutality, and Stamina along with Major Endurance. It is fantastic for running circles around your opponent and keeping your resources high.



If you want to run immovable potions for survivability, that's fine. But you'll have to find another source of Major Brutality.




Gear Setup



Head: Gaze of Sithis

Type: Heavy

Trait: Impenetrable

Enchantment: Prismatic Defence



In the head piece slot, you can use Gaze of Sithis, the new Mythic item that came in with Blackwood. This piece does not work with some builds. But high-damage and high-mobility builds such as this one will be powerful with this item. With Gaze of Sithis, you will get a ton of extra Health, Resistances, and Health Recovery at the cost of zero Blocking Mitigation. But don't worry, it's the opponent who will need to worry about Blocking. Your job is to dish out the damage and stay alive through mobility means, such as your speed, environment, dodging, and out-DPSing the enemy.



Shoulders: Clever Alchemist

Type: Medium

Trait: Impenetrable

Enchantment: Max Stamina



Chest: Armor of the Trainee

Type: Heavy

Trait: Impenetrable

Enchantment: Prismatic Defence



Waist: Clever Alchemist

Type: Medium

Trait: Impenetrable

Enchantment: Max Stamina



Hands: Relequen or Briarheart

Type: Medium

Trait: Divines

Enchantment: Max Stamina



Legs: Clever Alchemist

Type: Medium

Trait: Impenetrable

Enchantment: Prismatic Defence



Feet: Clever Alchemist

Type: Medium

Trait: Impenetrable

Enchantment: Max Stamina



On the body pieces, you are running five Clever Alchemist pieces. Clever Alchemist gives you a huge boost to your Health and one line of Weapon and Spell damage. Whenever you use a potion, you get 675 Weapon and Spell Damage for 20 seconds, which allows you to tear your opponents apart completely.



You also need one Armor of Trainee piece on the body, and that gives you 1.4K Health, which is slightly bigger than most other Health bonuses, boosting your survivability a little more.



Necklace: Deadly Strike

Type: Jewelry

Trait: Infused

Enchantment: Weapon Damage



Ring 1: Deadly Strike

Type: Jewelry

Trait: Infused

Enchantment: Weapon Damage



Ring 2: Deadly Strike

Type: Jewelry

Trait: Infused

Enchantment: Weapon Damage



Deadly Strike gives you two lines of Weapon Damage, some crit, and it boosts the power of your Martial damage over time and channeled abilities by 20%. The fifth-piece bonus is a fantastic boost made for Biting Jabs, so you will want to run this for some nasty damage.



Weapon 1: Deadly Strike

Type: Mace

Trait: Nirnhoned

Enchantment: Flame Damage



Weapon 2: Deadly Strike

Type: Mace

Trait: Nirnhoned

Enchantment: Poison Damage



Weapon 1 (Back Bar): Perfected Caustic Arrow

Type: Bow

Trait: Infused

Enchantment: Weapon Damage



You can use the Perfected Caustic Arrow on the Back bar, which passively gives you a little boost to your damage. But, more importantly, it grants you 330 extra Weapon Damage against opponents affected by your Poison Injection skill, which you use before you close the distance and start bursting them down.





Skill Setup



Front Bar



Biting Jabs, Toppling Charge, Resolving Vigour, Extended Ritual, Repentance, Dawnbreaker of Smiting



Biting Jabs is your main spammable, and this is what you will be using to hammer your opponents hard, dealing a great amount of damage. It also gives you Minor Protection, Major Savagery, 10% extra crit damage, and 10% damage against blocking enemies, along with a snare through the Aedric Spear passives and the skill's extra effects.



Biting Jabs also deals damage in a large cone and can keep enemies out of Stealth. So, Biting Jabs is a super versatile skill designed to shred your opponents efficiently.



Toppling Charge is a nice gap closer that stuns enemies. If the opponent can't be stunned, they'll still be interrupted if they're casting, and you also set them off balance. It costs and scales with Magicka, but you don't use it much or use it for the damage.



Resolving Vigor is an excellent and simple big heal over a short duration. Keep this up as much as possible during combat to maintain your survivability.



Extended Ritual is essential on this build. It gives you and your allies a massive AoE heal that scales with the max stats. Also, allies in the area can activate the Purify synergy, cleansing all harmful effects from themselves and healing for 1886 Health.



Repentance gives you a ton of all of your recoveries, allowing for burst heal and Stamina restore when corpses are around. If you choose to run immovable potions instead of potions that give Major Brutality, though, you'll need to slot Hircine's Fortitude here to get the Major Brutality passively.



Dawnbreaker of Smiting is your main Ultimate skill. It is nice and simple burst damage in a cone in front of you, synergizing with Biting Jabs. It provides an AoE stun and gives you passive extra Weapon Damage and damage to Vampires and Werewolves from the Fighters Guild passives.



Back Bar



Power of the Light, Poison Injection, Turn Evil, Restoring Focus, Repentance, Solar Disturbance



Power of the Light provides a massive burst of damage at the end of its duration, as long as you keep damaging the opponent. If you can apply this before starting your onslaught, then the stacking damage it provides will hit the maximum value.



Poison Injection works as a ranged Execute and a scaling DoT, and it also procs your Master's Bow damage boost. So, be sure to open combat with this...Please read more about this post on MmoGah: ESO Builds: Stamina Templar PvP Build – Blackwood
