PERFECT STORM

Solo Stamina Sorcerer PVE Arena Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The PERFECT STORM is a fantastic option for completing Solo Arenas in the Elder Scrolls Online such as VMA and Vateshran Hollows. This build combines amazing speed, powerful damage and easy sustain and healing tools that make it the perfect option for completing Solo content in ESO!


Primary Sets


The PERFECT STORM Stamina Sorcerer build focuses on sets that increase Critical Chance and Damage Over Time Damage.

The first and most important set on this build is Deadly Strike, which increases all Damage Over Time effects by a whopping 18 percent!

Next, the Leviathan set helps this build maintain nearly 60% Critical Chance at all times which is an important to increase overall damage as well as healing through Critical Surge.

Next, the Iceheart monster set is utilized here for an easy passive damage shield that greatly helps improve the build’s survivability.

Finally, though not required, the Thunderous Volley bow from Maelstrom Arena will be a powerful option to increase this build’s overall damage.

Thunderous Volley

For alternatives, a very powerful set if you have access to Trials gear is Vicious Serpent - this would make a great replacement for Leviathan.

To make this build literally unkillable you can also add the Ring Of The Pale Order mythic item.
