Stamina Dragonknight PVP

Table of Contents


Unbroken is a sturdy Stamina Dragonknight PVP Build. The build is putting emphasis on defense and survivability, weakening and wearing down opponents before you can finish them with your strong burst damage.

Unbroken is designed for Battlegrounds and open world PVP. You can fight several enemies 1v1 or even survive against multiple targets but the build shines when you cooperate with your team.

Key to Unbroken’s success is your ability to generate Ultimate faster and use your Ultimate skills as soon as they are ready to restore resources.

For a Magicka Dragonknight PVP Build you can take a look at Infernum.

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.

Armor Sets

One piece of Velidreth for the extra Weapon Damage. If you do not have the Mythic Item you can use a full Monster Set. Balorgh, Velidreth or Engine Guardian are great options.

Titanborn Strength: Offensive Armor Set that boosts our Damage and Penetration when low on Health.

Dizzying Swing: A great offensive skill to set the enemy off balance.

Executioner: Our execute ability. Most of your kills will come by using this skill on low health enemies.

Stampede: Our gap closer. Powerful AOE damage skill.

Forward Momentum: We use this skill to remove all snares from us. Important survival skill.

Resolving Vigor: Our healing ability.

Take Flight: Our Ultimate. We are using this skill mainly for its damage, stun and knock back effect but you can also use it as an additional gap closer.

Noxious Breath: Debuffs the enemy and deals great poison direct and DOT damage.

Fossilize: Powerful stun. You can replace it with Venomous Claw for even stronger offense but Stamina Sustain will suffer more.

Heroic Slash: Debuffs our target with Minor Maim but also helps us generate Ultimate faster.

Volatile Armor: One of our defensive abilities. Increases our resistances but also damages nearby enemies.

Cauterize: Good passive healing. Can replace it with Protective Plate to gain immunity to snares and immobilizations.

All points to Stamina

Mundus Stone

The Warrior for the best Weapon Damage possible.


Imperial – Redguard – Dark Elf – Orc

Vampire or Werewolf

Neither is necessary.


Activate your Volatile Armor, Forward Momentum and Cauterize before you start fighting. Close the distance to your target with Stampede, stun them with Fossilize and use Noxious Breath and Heroic Slash to them.

Like this you can debuff enemies, weaken them and make it easier to kill them.

Dizzying Swing is great to hurt enemies and set them off balance. Finally use Executioner on low health enemies to finish them.

If you are in trouble Forward Momentum can help you escape. Heal yourself with Resolving Vigor.

Use your Ultimate when ready to hurt your enemies but also to restore your resources.
