ARCANE ARCHER

Stamina Sorcerer SOLO PVE Bow / Pet Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The ARCANE ARCHER Build combines the Daedric Summoning skills of the Sorcerer Class, letting your pets tank and absorb damage for you while you fire off Bow Skills from a distance!


Primary Sets


Since we are letting our Clannfear pet tank for us we are able to run 3 full offensive sets, maximizing our damage potential on this solo build.

First, Deadly Strike buffs the majority of our damaging abilities by a whopping 20%. This is actually a strong set for bow builds as so many bow abilities are actually damage over time focused.

We combine this with Kvatch Gladiator, which also adds nearly 1500 weapon damage to all of our offensive abilities when an enemies drops into execute range.

Finally, Maw Of The Infernal does great damage while also adding to the summoned pet theme of this build.

The Daedroth's attacks deal 3865 Flame Damage, and alternate between Fiery Breath, Fiery Jaws, and Jagged Claw, which alternate once every 2 seconds. The Daedroth can only be summoned once every 15 seconds.


Alternate Sets


For alternatives, anything else that focuses on damage will do nicely, including Spriggan’s Thorns or New Moon Acolyte.

Consumables, Race, Mundus


Race

I prefer Redguard for this build, due to the cost reduction of weapon abilities (reduces all bow skill costs) and the Adrenaline Rush passive which helps with sustain. Still, other stamina-based races should also work well, including Orc, Dark Elf, Wood Elf and Khajiit.

Mundus

The Thief

Food/Drink Buff

Bewitched Sugar Skulls or Tri-Stat Food

Potions

Tri-Stat Potion
