Stamina Necromancer PVE DPS ONE BAR Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The DEFILER Build is an EASY One Bar set up for the Stamina Necromancer class in The Elder Scrolls Online focused on Disease and Poison Damage for big DPS numbers! Most gear sets for this build can be easily obtained and no Trials gear is required! Plus, you can add a second skill bar for even more damage!

Primary Sets

Our main damage sets on this build buff BOTH poison and disease damage, starting with the Swamp Raider set which gives a massive 600 weapon damage bonus to each damage type.

The Morag Tong set adds an additional 10% bonus to poison and disease effects on top of this which also helps your group.

Velidreth fits the Defiler theme for this build by adding on yet another source of Disease damage for a very consistent source of extra passive DPS.

Finally, the Thunderous Volley set is another easy source of increased DPS, buffing your Volley skill automatically every time you cast.
