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 (more than once per second) it will see a big boost from this set.

Mother’s Sorrow is another great set for maxing out our Critical Strike Chance, helping us do as much damage and healing as possible.

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

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.
