Stamina Dragonknight Solo PVE One Bar Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The MAULER Build is an absolute BEAST! As a Stamina DK, we have many hard hitting abilities, as well as natural buffs to our HEAVY ATTACK damage. So if you want a heavy-hitting, tough as nails warrior type character, look no further! This guide contains details for a ONE BAR and TWO BAR version of the build.

Primary Sets

The main sets on the Mauler Build revolve around buffing your Heavy Attack damage as much as possible. The Stamina Dragonknight is actually a great option for a Heavy Attack build due to our class skill Molten Armaments which provides even more bonus Heavy Attack damage!

Our first Heavy Attack set for this build is Sergeant’s Mail. This set is obtained in Wayrest Sewers and provides extra damage to our heavy attacks as well as some bonus Weapon Damage, Health and Health Recovery.

We combine this with Storm Master for even more heavy attack damage and weapon critical.

Stone Husk helps to increase our overall damage even further through additional proc damage and weapon damage at the same time! Plus it looks nasty!

Finally, this build can make use of the Crushing Wall set (Maelstrom Arena Destruction Staff) for even more Heavy Attack damage.

Sergeant’s Mail

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 1206 Maximum Health
(3 items) Adds 129 Health Recovery
(4 items) Adds 129 Weapon and Spell Damage
(5 items) Increases the damage of your fully-charged Heavy Attacks by 2257.

Storm Master

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 657 Critical Chance
(3 items) Adds 657 Critical Chance
(4 items) Adds 129 Weapon and Spell Damage
(5 items) When you deal Critical Damage with a fully-charged Heavy Attack, your Light and Heavy Attacks deal an additional 1542 damage for 20 seconds. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds

Stone Husk

Set bonus
(1 item) Adds 657 Critical Chance
(2 items) Your Heavy Attacks tether you to enemies within 10 meters for 5 seconds, as long as you remain within 12 meters. Enemies touching the tether take 998 Physical Damage every 1 second and you gain a stack of Husk Drain, up to 15 stacks. This effect can occur once every 10 seconds and scales off the higher of your Weapon or Spell Damage. When the tether ends, you consume the stacks and gain 30 Weapon and Spell Damage per stack for 5 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

Storm Master can be replaced with other general damage sets like New Moon Acolyte, Hunding’s Rage, or Briarheart. For the monster set, I also recommend Bloodspawn for a nice defensive option.

New Moon Acolyte

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 657 Critical Chance
(3 items) Adds 129 Weapon and Spell Damage
(4 items) Adds 1487 Offensive Penetration
(5 items) Adds 401 Weapon and Spell Damage. Increases the cost of your active abilities by 5%.

Hunding’s Rage

(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Stamina

(5 items) Adds 300 Weapon and Spell Damage

Briarheart

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 657 Critical Chance
(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Stamina
(4 items) Adds 657 Critical Chance
(5 items) When you deal Critical Damage, you increase your Weapon and Spell Damage by 450 for 10 seconds. While this effect is active your Critical Strikes heal you for 349 Health. This effect can occur once every 15 seconds.

Bloodspawn

Set bonus

(1 item) Adds 129 Stamina Recovery
(2 items) When you take damage, you have a 6% chance to generate 13 Ultimate and increase your Physical Resistance and Spell Resistance by 3731 for 5 seconds. This effect can occur once every 5 seconds.

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.

  • All Light Armor - Quickened Traits

  • Restoration Staff


Recommended Skills

  1. Blood Transfusion

  2. Crimson Font

  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.
