Werewolf Solo PVE Build

Table of Contents


Bloodlust is a powerful Werewolf Solo PVE Build for The Elder Scrolls Online. The Build is designed for players that prefer to play Solo, challenging themselves in any type of PVE content. You can use it to defeat Overworld Bosses, farm Public Dungeons, complete 4-man Dungeons in Normal or Veteran Difficulty and Solo Arenas like the Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows.

The Build is using strong Werewolf Skills to survive and complete every Solo content in the game with ease. The base build for Bloodlust is a Stamina Sorcerer Solo PVE Build, but you can use the Werewolf setup with every Class and Stamina Build.

For an all around Werewolf PVE Build you can take a look at The Beast.

If you are a new player, take a look at my Vampire vs Werewolf Guide to understand the differences between the two skill lines. If you would like to learn more about the Sorcerer Class, please take a look at my Sorcerer Beginner Guide.

Bloodlust is a powerful Werewolf PVE Build for pure Solo Gameplay. It can complete with ease the hardest Solo content in ESO, Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows. You can use it for Overworld Bosses, Public Dungeons and 4-man Dungeons solo as well.

The build offers great survivability and strong damage. Thanks to the armor sets we are using, Stamina sustain is great as well.


Your goal when playing as a Stamina Sorcerer is to generate enough Ultimate and transform into a Werewolf. You can however stay like this to defeat enemies and clear content.
