General Info

 

This is a full stamina tank build, for sustain and resource management as well as overall effectiveness versus what you'd normally see from people who usually make builds. For potions I suggest either going the basic Tripots, or using Immoveable/Health/Stamina potions. You could also use trash potions as well, though they're not as effective. The only weakness is one shots and not being able to put up your shields in time to absorb some hits, otherwise your sustain is going to outlast your enemies.

 

I chose this skill setup specifically to work with stamina since stamina is easier to sustain than magicka in terms of tanking, looking at you potion spamming argonians. ;P

 You're more than welcome to use the Heavy armor skill to provide your resistances or Mighty Chudan, but that takes a bit away from your self healing intake from Dragonknight passives, as well as another damage shield.

    Side note: If you’re using dual sword and board (I would be but didn’t have another Alkosh sword and shield), you can change Carve to Heroic slash

    Hey Mikael, I want to start this build, but as of now my health is like 14k, stam 21k and magicka 10.6k . Im level 50 champion points 90. Is it the sets that give you a lot of health?

    The health comes from several sources; Health bonus from racial passives, health enchantments on armor, bonus health passives from armor sets, heavy armor passives and bonus from Undaunted mettle

    Ah I see, well I’m a Red guard stamina build. Would this build be suitable for me? Thanks for replying by the way!

    Redguards are really only good for dps tbh. It would still work, but wonxt be as sturdy. The build might work for pvp but it’s a pve setup
