Magicka Sorcerer PVP Build ESO

Magicka Sorcerer PVP

Table of Contents


Nemesis is a lethal burst damage Magicka Sorcerer PVP Build, designed for Battlegrounds and open world PVP.

The build offers insane burst damage that can destroy your targets in a moment and great survivability. Our Armor Sets and skills strengthen our damage potential and offer options to replenish our Magicka so we can keep fighting.

The goal of Nemesis is to kill enemies as fast as possible but also to survive attacks from multiple enemies. If things start going south you can always escape and reset the fight.

For a Pet Magicka Sorcerer PVP Build you can take a look at Legion.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Sorcerer Beginner Guide.

You can find more Builds in the Sorcerer Builds page.

Armor Sets

One piece of Balorgh for the extra Spell Damage. If you are not using Gaze of Sithis, you can wear a full Monster Set, Balorgh, Engine Guardian or Iceheart.

Shacklebreaker: An excellent sustain set that helps us use our skills for longer.

Spinner’s Garments: An excellent Magicka offensive Armor Set that increases our total Magicka and boosts our damage.

Gaze of Sithis: Mythic Item that boosts Maximum Health, Health Recovery and Armor at the cost of zero Block Mitigation.

(Perfected)Precise Regeneration: Great option for better sustain.

Destructive Impact/Perfected Destructive Impact is a great Ability Altering set you can combine with this build thanks to the Destructive Clench skill we are using.

Destructive Clench: Our “opener” skill. We use it to knock back enemies.

Endless Fury: Our most lethal skill. Most of our kills will come by using Endless Fury.

Crystal Fragments: A skill with insane burst damage that also helps with our sustain. Basically our “finisher” when combined with Endless Fury.

Hardened Ward: Our shield ability. Very important for our survival.

Inner Light: Placed here to increase our total Magicka and Spell Critical rating.

Greater Storm Atronach: Summons another strong Pet that stuns enemies and deals shock damage. Ice Comet as an alternative.

Streak: Our escape method. We can use this skill offensively as well, to stun enemies. Try not to spam it too much.

Radiating Regeneration: Essential for our survival.

Boundless Storm: Great boost to our resistances and good AOE damage.

Critical Surge: Boosts Spell Damage and provides passive heals. Power Surge as an alternative for group heals.

Dark Conversion: We use Dark Conversion to replenish our magicka but also as a heal ability.

Light’s Champion: Our defensive Ultimate. Massive heal and a boost to Critical Damage.
