BLADE STORM

Stamina Sorcerer Solo PVE Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The BLADE STORM Build is a Solo Stamina Sorcerer build for ESO that utilizes powerful summoned creatures AND weapons to do your bidding! Amazing damage, survivability and healing for solo and group play.


Primary Sets


Aegis Caller provides both amazing damage and a fun thematic feel for the build. This set summons a literal Air Atronach to fight for you!

New Moon Acolyte ramps up the damage even further with tons of great stats for the Stamina Sorcerer including Weapon Critical and Physical Penetration.

Finally, Shadowrend provides a debuff that the Sorcerer class does not have in Minor Main, plus it adds to our summoned army!

Aegis Caller

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 129 Weapon Damage
(3 items) Adds 129 Stamina Recovery
(4 items) Adds 129 Weapon Damage
(5 items) When you deal critical damage with a melee ability, summon a Lesser Aegis for 11 seconds. After 2.5 seconds, the Lesser Aegis spins its blades, dealing 3730 Bleed Damage every 1 second. This effect can occur once every 12 seconds.

New Moon Acolyte

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 833 Weapon Critical, Adds 833 Spell Critical
(3 items) Adds 129 Weapon Damage and Spell Damage
(4 items) Adds 1487 Physical Penetration, Adds 1487 Spell Penetration
(5 items) Adds 401 Weapon Damage and Spell Damage. Increases the cost of your active abilities by 5%.

Shadowrend

Set bonus
(1 item) Adds 129 Magicka Recovery
(2 items) When you take damage, you have a 15% chance to summon a shadowy Clannfear for 15 seconds. The Clannfear's basic attacks deal 3440 Magic Damage and apply Minor Maim to any enemy hit for 3 seconds, reducing their damage done by 5%. This effect can occur once every 15 seconds.


Alternative Sets


Both Aegis Caller and New Moon Acolyte can be challenging to get (or craft, in the case of NMA), so you can replace these with more generic damage sets including: Briarheart or Spriggan’s Thorns. A standard damage-based monster set like Velidreth or Selene can also be used.

Briarheart

Set bonus

(2 items) Adds 833 Weapon Critical
(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Stamina
(4 items) Adds 833 Weapon Critical
(5 items) When you deal Critical Damage, you increase your Weapon 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.

Consumables, Race, Mundus


Race

Redguard is my favorite race for this build because the sustain passives are incredibly strong and sustain is one of the stamina sorcerer’s weakest areas. Orc will provide the best damage overall, plus extra health which is a great bonus - this will be the best option for group play if someone is helping you with sustain.

Mundus
