Combat Prayer: One of our heal/buff spells. Use it to buff your group’s damage and resistances.

Illustrious Healing: Our main heal spell. A direct and over time heal that you should always have up.

Radiating Regeneration: Another good heal/support spell that you should always have up.

Blood Sacrifice: Our emergency heal.

Braided Tether: Potent AOE heal ability that also boosts our Healing Done.

Aggressive Horn: Our main Ultimate. We use this mostly against strong enemies, Bosses, to help our team with more damage.

Unstable Wall of Elements: Great Fire AOE damage skill to assist our group.

Renewing Undeath: Another AOE heal skill that can consume a corpse to remove negative effects.

Elemental Drain: A very important skill for our sustain. Debuffs the enemies with Major Breach and returns magicka to us thanks to its minor magickasteal effect.

Spirit Guardian: Assist with healing and takes some part of our damage. We use this skill to generate corpses.

Energy Orb: Super helpful when dealing with strong enemies. Works as a synergy for your tank as well.

Renewing Animation: Emergency Resurrection Ultimate. Can bring back to life up to 3 of your allies.

Build Difficulty Rating – 3,5

Shaman is a relatively easy Necromancer Healer PVE Build. The Necromancer skills we are using are potent and can heal/buff your group but they require a corpse to work or provide an additional effect.

Timing the creation of a corpse with your Spirit Guardian in order to use these skills will be your major concern at first and will require some practice.

The Magicka Recovery is already great but if you find yourself low on that resource you can quickly replenish it with a potion or a heavy attack.


Apply Elemental Drain and summon your Spirit Guardian to assist with heals and mitigate incoming damage.

Place Illustrious Healing and Renewing Undeath to constantly heal your group and throw an Energy Orb.

Illustrious Healing and Energy Orb can be used once only so let them run their life and renew.

Heal/buff with Combat Prayer, Radiating Regeneration and assist with Unstable Wall of Elements. Use Braided Tether on corpses and Blood Sacrifice if you have to.

Finally use your Aggressive Horn in Boss fights.
