What is the Best Stamina DPS Class in ESO
Classes in ESO are always changing! A Stamina Class that is powerful now, might lose its power in an update or two. This creates a dynamic “meta” when it comes to DPS and in general Damage Dealers in the game. However each Class has its own unique skills and characteristics, that will help it stand out and help you in the role of DPS.
Below you can see how each Stamina Class fares at the moment and what makes them unique.
The Stamina Dragonknight is the strongest Stamina DPS Class in ESO right now. This is mainly because of the new Molten Whip spammable, that allows the Class to use half stamina and half magicka to cast it! The Stamina Dragonknight is a strong, poison-based DPS Class that can deal massive damage in melee range.
Stamina Dragonknight Builds & Guides:
The Stamina Sorcerer remains a great DPS Class, despite the nerfs to some of its most iconic skills. It has always being a more Weapon Skills focused Class which helps it to retain its good DPS. Spammables like Rapid Strikes along with Daedric Prey, Volatile Familiar and Greater Storm Atronach will allow you to deal massive damage and reach higher numbers of DPS in ESO!
Stamina Sorcerer Builds & Guides:
A flexible and potent Stamina DPS Class. The Stamina Templar can use its iconic Biting Jabs spammable to deal damage or replace it with another skill like Rapid Strikes and still be amongst the top DPS Classes!
Several utility skills and heals, make it one of the most new player friendly Classes in the game! A solid option for every type of PVE content!
Stamina Templar Builds & Guides:
A quite hard to master Class and arguably the least new player friendly option in ESO. The Stamina Nightblade can be powerful when you know what you are doing but requires great Light Attack Weaving and good timing to achieve the best results.
Surprise Attack is one of the best Class spammables in the game and when combined with abilities like Twisting Path and Killer’s Blade, it can destroy even the toughest opponent! This Class requires practice to master but is one of the most satisfying to play with!
Stamina Nightblade Builds & Guides:
A very interesting and fun Class to play in ESO. The Stamina Necromancer relies a lot on Stalking Blastbones or Blighted Blastbones to deal damage, which you have to fire every third cast for the best results. Pestilent Colossus and Venom Skull are a few more strong DPS skills you can use as a Necromancer.
This Class can also use weapon abilities with success, which makes it flexible as well.
Stamina Necromancer Builds & Guides:
Finally the Stamina Warden, although a potent and quite flexible Class, cannot achieve as high damage as the other five Stamina Classes. This is because of the rework to its core Passive abilities like Advanced Species, in the latest update.
Despite this change the Class remains fun and strong to use, thanks to abilities like Subterranean Assault, Deep Fissure, Fetcher Infection and Wild Guardian. Overall, the Stamina Warden is an easy class to play with a simple rotation and several helpful skills. Which makes it perfect for new players.
