Stamina Necromancer PVE Build ESO

Stamina Necromancer PVE

Table of Contents

Description

Harbinger is a Stamina Necromancer PVE Build with strong Disease, Poison attacks and the ability to summon undead minions to assist you in fight. The build is balanced around solo and group gameplay, allowing you to experience every PVE content ESO has to offer.

The idea behind Harbinger is to use your Undead minions to deal damage but also as a source of corpses for you to exploit. Many Necromancer skills use corpses as fuel to boost your DPS and create specific effects.

The many strong disease and poison damage skills of the Stamina Necromancer can weaken your enemies and help you kill them faster.

Harbinger is a perfect PVE Build for new players but also ESO veterans.

If you are looking for a Magicka Necromancer PVE Build take a look at Hades.

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.
