2H Stamina Necromancer PVE

Table of Contents

Description

Devourer is a Stamina Necromancer PVE Build that is using Two Handed weapons instead of Dual Wield.

The Build offers different setups for Solo and Group gameplay as well as different back-bar options! Devourer is a strong 2h Stamina Warden PVE build, perfect for almost every content in the game.

Devourer is a fun and easy 2H Stamina Necromancer PVE build, viable for almost every PVE content ESO has to offer. For a Dual Wield Stamina Necromancer PVE Build take a look at Harbinger.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Necromancer 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 Necromancer Solo Build.

You can find more Builds in the Necromancer Builds page.
