ESO Magicka Dragonknight Fire DPS Build

ESO Fire DPS Build

A Fire based DPS PVE Build for The Elder Scrolls Online! The Build is focusing on Fire damage effects, skills and Armor Sets to provide the maximum Fire damage possible and create a fun gameplay!

Pyromancer” is designed to complete both Solo and Group PVE content, as it is! Our Class of choice is the Magicka Dragonknight because of the strong Fire damage skills it offers. Combining those skills with more from Weapon and Guild lines, gives us a strong core of Fire skills to use in the Build!

The Armor Sets we are using also boost the Fire damage of our skills and overall effects!

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Dragonknight Beginner Guide. You can find more Builds in the Dragonknight Builds page.

For more Elemental and Status Effects Builds you can take a look at ESO Elemental Builds!
