Magicka Necromancer VAMPIRE Solo PVE Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The BLOODMANCER Build is a Solo Magicka Necromancer build that is nearly unkillable! Our combination of Vampire and Necromancer abilities provide great Damage Reduction, Healing and AOE Damage all within the Vampire theme for ESO.


Primary Sets


The focus of this Unkillable Solo Necromancer build is on maintaining as much Magicka sustain as possible while in Mistform. There are several ways we can do this, but the best tends to be from sets that can give us a unique magicka boosting proc since Magicka cannot regenerate on it’s own during Mistform.

First, Mother’s Sorrow provides great damage for this build thanks to its insanely high critical stat boosts. On a vampire build this is great because it maximizes our damage and healing at the same time. This set is also extremely easy to get on your own or purchase from Guild Vendors.

Hollowfang Thirst is important to this build because the magicka it provides can sustain your character, even while in Mistform where normal magicka recovery does not work. This set provides a big boost to our Magicka pool every 9 seconds.

Wrath Of Elements is an ability altering staff from Vateshran Hollows that creates another free AOE DOT when we use Elemental Drain. This actually adds a lot of overall damage to this build as Necromancers do exceptionally well with damage over time effects.

Finally, this build uses Wall Of Elements on the backbar which means the Crushing Wall set (Maelstrom Arena Destruction Staff) can be used for even more passive, free damage.

Mother’s Sorrow

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(3 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical
(4 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical
(5 items) Adds 1924 Spell Critical

Hollowfang Thirst

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical
(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(4 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical
(5 items) Whenever you critically heal or critically damage a target, spawn a ball of Hemoglobin at their location. After 2 seconds the ball explodes, restoring 3000 Magicka and applying Minor Vitality to you and your allies within 6 meters of the ball for 9 seconds, increasing their healing received by 8%. This effect can occur once every 9 seconds.

Wrath Of Elements

Set bonus
(2 items) Casting Weakness to Elements on a target within 15 meters of you causes a surge of elemental energy to tether between you for 10 seconds. While the tether persists and you remain in range, enemies touching the tether take 2371 Flame Damage, 2371 Shock Damage, or 2371 Frost Damage every 1 second, which increases by 1% each time it deals damage, up to 20%. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds.

Crushing Wall

Set bonus
(2 items) Your Light and Heavy Attacks deal an additional 1353 damage to enemies in your Wall of Elements.


Alternative Sets


Hollowfang Thirst can be difficult to get and requires access to the Scalebreaker DLC, which means not everyone will be able to obtain it. Another great alternative from the base game that has a similar kind of magicka restoring effect is Magicka Furnace from Direfrost Keep.

Magicka Furnace

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 1487 Armor
(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(4 items) Adds 129 Spell Damage
(5 items) When you take damage while you are under 50% Magicka, you restore 7590 Magicka. This effect can occur once every 30 seconds.

High Elf is great for this build thanks to the extra spell damage and damage done while channeling abilities. Breton will also be very helpful to deal with the Vampire skill cost increases.
