2H Stamina Dragonknight PVE

Table of Contents

Description

Baneful is a 2H Stamina Dragonknight PVE Build and an alternative way to play as a Stamina Dragonknight. The build is using a Two Handed weapon instead of Dual Wield.

The Build offers different setups for Solo and Group gameplay as well as different back-bar options! Baneful is a strong and easy 2H Stamina Dragonknight PVE build for almost every content in game.

For a Dual Wield Stamina Dragonknight PVE Build take a look at Venomous.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Dragonknight Beginner Guide.

If you are looking for a Solo PVE Build for Arenas like the Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows, take a look at my Stamina Dragonknight Solo Build.

You can find more Builds in the Dragonknight Builds page.
