Magicka Necromancer Solo PVE ONE BAR Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The DRAUGR KIN Build is a Solo Magicka Necromancer build for ESO that can easily solo most content in the game while still maintaining the feel of class specific necromancer skills. Summoned Skeletons and Ice Magic will put a fearsome chill into your enemies!

Primary Sets

The Draugrkin’s Grip set provides the namesake for this build, and provides a great damage synergy with our DOT abilities, especially Shocking Siphon. Since this ability does damage so quickly it will see a big boost from this set.

Order’s Wrath is another great set for maxing out our Critical Strike Chance, as well as boosting our Critical Damage and Critical Healing, plus it’s crafted!

Finally, Iceheart is an excellent monster set for this building, giving us a free damage shield, more critical chance and extra AOE ice damage.

Consumables, Race, Mundus

Race

My favorite race for this build is High Elf thanks to the extra spell damage, max magicka and Spell Recharge passive. Breton, Khajiit and Dark Elf are also strong choices. For more details on all ESO Races and passive bonuses be sure to check out our Full ESO Race Guide.

Companions

If you like playing Solo, this build can benefit greatly from using Companions! This Solo build will benefit the most from the additional healing and buff options a healer focused Companion can offer, so if you are going to use a Companion I would suggest a full healer build for them. I recommend Mirri Elendis for Companion on this build with the set up below. More information on Companions Builds and Skills can be found in our detailed Companion Guides section.


Recommended Gear

  • All Light Armor - Quickened Traits

  • Restoration Staff


Recommended Skills

  1. Blood Transfusion

  2. Crimson Font

  3. Rejuvenation

  4. Mystic Fortress

  5. Reverse Entropy

  6. ULT. Impeccable Shot

Additional Skills

The skills below may also be helpful in other situations such as trash pulls.
