Stamina Arcanist Bow
Hastur is a Stamina Arcanist Bow DPS Build in ESO. The Arcanist is a Class of Eldritch Horror, that relies on Magic Damage and the Crux system to destroy its enemies! It can deal massive damage to single targets but also groups of enemies thanks to its powerful abilities. A flexible Class with strong offensive skills that use your primary resource. An alternative Stamina Arcanist PVE Build that is using only the bow as its weapon. The build is balanced around both solo and group gameplay. An excellent option if the bow is your favorite ESO weapon.
The Build is designed to use a combination of Arcanist Class skills and Bow abilities in order to help you clear almost every PVE content in ESO. If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Arcanist Beginner Guide. If you are looking for a different setup, you can find more Arcanist Builds in the Arcanist Builds page.
