Magicka Sorcerer Beginner Pet Build

ESO Magicka Sorcerer Beginner Pet Build

by Hack The Minotaur

This Magicka Sorcerer Pet build for The Elder Scrolls Online is very easy to play and has access to amazing heals, defense, and damage! This build will do great in both PVE and PVP.

More details including game play of the Magicka Sorcerer Beginner Pet Build can be found in the video below.

Primary Sets

Our main 5 piece set on this build is Mother’s Sorrow, a light armor set from the base game zone Deshaan. This set provides a substantial bonus to our build’s spell critical, which is important both for dealing damage and healing on the sorcerer class.

The second set on this build, Necropotence is a pet-specific set that pushes our max magicka through the roof when any pet is active! Remember that max magicka increases both damage and healing for magicka-based skills.


Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(4 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(5 items) While you have a pet active, your Maximum Magicka is increased by 3150.

Mother’s Sorrow

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka

Alternative Sets

For alternatives I also recommend sets such as Spinner’s Garments and Winter’s Respite. I recommend using the Level Up Rewards weapons (Prophet’s Staff) to make up the remaining 2 open gear slots.
