Stamina Necromancer Bow PVE Build ESO

Stamina Necromancer Bow

Table of Contents


Barrage is a Stamina Necromancer Bow Build PVE. An alternative Stamina Necromancer 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.

Barrage can complete almost every PVE content. For a Dual Wield Stamina Necromancer PVE Build take a look at Harbinger.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Necromancer 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 Necromancer Solo Build.

You can find more Builds in the Necromancer 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.
