Poison / Disease Damage

Sunderflame's unique penetration bonus got changed for Minor Breach & Minor Fracture, which is sort of a nerf if you have a stamina Templar in your group. But the bonus flame damage from heavy attacks got buffed from 700 to 4000 damage. Without any cooldown. This is a huge buff for stamina DKs.

If you want to go all-poison, you can use Viper's Sting instead of Sunderflame, but the theorical DPS from both set is in favor of Sunderflame.

 

Concerning what gear to use into which slot, it really depends on what you can loot first. However :

  • To get a heavy chest piece, you'll obviously need to craft it in Hunding's Rage set.
  • Jewelry will be much easier to get in Sunderflame set until the jewelry crafting economy stabilize itself at lower costs (and vet City of Ash I is really easy, don't be afraid to give it a try).

For the weapons, they all need to be of the same set, starting from that point :

  • You have a vMA/Master bow, then you need to get Sunderflame melee weapons ; or
  • You don't have a vMA/Master bow, then it's doesn't matter which set are melee weapons and bow ; or
  • Last option would be to use an Agility bow and Sunderflame melee weapons until you can get a vMA/Master bow, but I would only recommand the Agility bow as a temporary placeholder

 

General Info

 

***DISCLAIMER***
This build is intended to provide a reliable way to have fun with a SnB DPS build while still being able to deal decent damage output. It will obviously never outperform a DW/Bow or 2H/Bow build of the same kind. But if you're like me and like to add a bit of roleplay in your playstyle, this is the kind of build you can use.

Dummy Parse

25k+ DPS with purple gear and non-optimal traits and non-optimal player.

Skills

You can use Resolving Vigor instead of Flames of Oblivion if playing solo, or if the healer is struggling.

Races

Orc > Khajiit > Redguard > Imperial > Any other races
I'm playing as a Nord, because roleplay. Redguard isn't the best race for this specific stamina build, because we have no need of extra sustain due to the heavy attack rotation.

Rotation

Apply Molten Armaments & Flames of Oblivion before fight and keep them up (do a Light Attack>Molten Armaments on each even rotation, and a Light Attack>Flames of Oblivion on each odd rotation, this will allow you to never lack the Magicka to cast them)

Evolutions, Improvements

As you progress through the game and get more gold and better performance, you can consider the following.

Poisons

You can use poison on you bow, instead of disease glyph, especially this one :

Corn Flower

Fleshfly Larva

Nightshade

Which deals more DPS than a poison/disease glyph alone.

Weapons

A Maelstrom bow (or Master bow, in a lesser extend) will of course be a big boost to your damage output. In that case make sur you have it Nirnhoned, and use Sunderflame (heavy attacks on frontbar) or Viper's Sting (melee attacks on frontbar) weapons, to keep the 5 pieces bonus from Hunding's Rage.

Monster Set

Velidreth can be a good improvement over Spawn of Mephala, especially against bosses with large hitboxes, allowing 2 or 3 spores to hit them, effectively doubling or tripling the damage it deals.
