Build Idea :

Our role will be Tank in Group PvE with 1HS and Sustained DD in Solo PvE with 2H.

 

General Tanking in Group PvE : (Use AlphaGear addon to switch your gear+skill presets)

 

Against bosses without adds :

 

Explanation :

Single Target Bar

1) Pierce Armor - Taunt + Resistance Debuff. Keep it up on bosses all the times.

2) Heroic Slash - Damage Debuff + Ultimate Generation. Keep it up on bosses all the times.

3) Igneous Shield - Spam this shield every 6 seconds in fight.

4) Resolving Vigor - Spam this heal every time you lose your healh in fight. Be self sustained.

5) Absorb Spell - For in-slot bonus and occasional spell absorbs.

R) Aggresive Warhorn - Use this whenever its off cooldown while killing bosses. However if you have someone with this same skill then co-ordinate with them instead.

 

Multi Target Bar

1) Ring of Preservation - 10% Stamina Recovery + 8% damage reduction + 20% roll dodge cost reduction.

2) Invirogating Drain - Generates 5 ultimate per second. Whenever boss is not hitting you or isnt hitting you hard enough then SPAM this every 3 seconds.

3) Shuffle - 20% evade chance + ult regain via our armor procs. Use it before every fight. Keep this up everytime.

4) Volatile Armor - Gives 10% damage reduction + 12% healing recieved + resistances. Keep this up everytime. The AOE damage also helps while killing trash mobs.

5) Inner Rage - Ranged taunt hard hitting mob / boss is at range and hitting your teammates instead of you.

R) Magma Shell - Our oh fk button.

 

Against bosses with adds OR against normal mobs :

 

Explanation :

Noxious Breath - Area Resistance Debuff + Slow.

Unrelenting Grip - Pulls distant targets near you, refunds the magicka cost if pull fails. Useful to gather  mobs in one place.

 

Alternative Skills & Skills Of Interest :

Igneous Weapons - Gives 20% weapon damage and spell damage boost. Considering not many classes have easy access to major brutality buff and you will be using this while leveling before you have access to Rally from 2H line.

Cinder Storm - AOE Slow. You can use this skill instead of Invirogating Drain. However, the radius is very low.

Mystic Orb - Useful in arena and trials on trash fights.

Retreating Maneuver - You may use this skill while on mount/running from one area to another.

Reviving Barrier - For inslot bonus of 10% magicka recovery.

Mystic / Stalwart Guard - For offtanking in trials.

There are other max health scaling skills which are only useful in full health builds so do not go for them if you are going for stamina build.

 

Mundus Stone

Atronach

 

Consumable

Max Stamina + Max Magicka CP 150-160 food.

 

General Damage Dealing in Solo PvE

Explanation :

Single Target Bar

1) Wrecking Blow - High damaging skill. We will be using this most of the times against single targets followed by fully charged heavy attack.

2) Executioner - High damaging skill. We will be spamming this as soon as target goes down below 50% HP.

3) Igneous Shield - 25% healing done + shield. Basically increases Rally's HOT.

4) Rally - 20% weapon damage buff + HOT + instant heal. Use Igneous Weapons till you get this.

5) Molten Armaments - 40% heavy attack damage increase, 20% spell damage increase. Respec your Igneous Weapons once you unlock Momentum.

R) Standard Of Might - Long DOT + 20% damage increase + 20% incoming damage decrease + heal.

 

Multi Target Bar

1) Noxious Breath - AOE Damage + DOT + Slow Debuff + Armor Debuf. Our opening skill. Consider using Axe for additional DOT damage.

2) Brawler - AOE Damage + DOT + Shield.

3) Draw Essense - AOE Damage + Heal + Magicka Recovery. Despite being elemental damage skill, this will save your life every time. You can use Reverse Slice before you unlock this.

4) Volatile Armor - AOE Damage + DOT + 10% damage reduction + 12% healing recieved + resistances.

5) Flames Of Oblivion - 10% spell and weapon crit chance which will benefit both physical and elemental damage.

R) Shooting Star - AOE damage ultimate which restores ultimate based on number of enemies hit.

 

Alternative Skills & Skills Of Interest :

Green Dragon Blood - Burst heal + 20% stamina recovery + 20% health recovery.

Venomous Claw - Does damage and applies 30% slow. Useful in early levels, burning phase of bosses and in PvP..

Critical Rush/Stampade - Useful with crit builds and in PVP.

Reverse Slice - Use this before you unlock Draw Essense.

Dawnbreaker Of Smiting - AOE Damage + DOT + CC + heal + inslot damage increase. Useful mostly in PvP. I havent used this much in PvE so i have replaced this with Shooting Star.

 

Mundus Stone

Thief

 

Passives

All 3 class passives, All 2H passives, All 1HS passives, All race passives, All heavy armor passives, All Undaunted Passives. Dexterity, Wind Walker, Agility if you are going to use Medium Armor for solo play, Intimidating Presence, Persuasive Will for hastened questing while leveling. Vampire passives Supernatural Recovery, Undeath.

 

Attributes

All points into Stamina. Idea here is to use Attribute Points to boost stamina so we can tank as well as do some damage for our solo purposes, using our gear to boost health and using consumables to boost magicka and stamina.

 

Champion Point Tips

 

Not going to put numbers here. Instead prioirities them as you level.

1) The Shadow - Shadow Ward

2) The Lady - Hardy, Elemental Defender

3) The Tower - Warlord, Magician

4) The Lover - Arcanist, Tenacity (specially after update 13)

5) The Lord - Quick Recovery, Heavy Armor Focus, Bastion
