Stamina Dragonknight Bow PVE Build ESO

Stamina Dragonknight Bow PVE

Table of Contents


Venomstrike is a Stamina Dragonknight Bow PVE Build with strong Poison attacks. The Build is taking advantage of Dragonknight’s active and passive skills to debuff and destroy enemies with ease, along with your Bow abilities. A balanced Stamina Dragonknight Bow PVE Build for solo and group gameplay.

For a more traditional StamDK PVE Build take a look at Venomous.

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

If you are looking for a Solo PVE Build for Arenas like the Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows, take a look at my Stamina Dragonknight Solo Build.

You can find more Builds in the Dragonknight Builds page.

Armor Sets

Slimecraw is a great option to boost Critical Chance. Kjalnar’s Nightmare as alternative if you are not using the Harpooner’s Wading Kilt Mythic Item.

(Perfected)Arms of Relequen: Best in Slot Stamina DPS set in ESO at the moment.

Kinras’s Wrath: Great DPS Set. Briarheart and Tzogvin’s Warband are good alternatives.

Harpooner’s Wading Kilt: Boosts Critical Chance and Critical Damage when dealing Direct Damage. Great option for Bow, ranged builds.

Thunderous Volley/Perfected Thunderous Volley: Best option to complete sets that don’t have a bow of their own and to increase our AOE-DOT damage from Endless Hail.
