Gear and Item Set Info
3 Pieces Shadow Dancer set (3 body + weapons(sharpened inferno ideally and defending resto)) Infused, can only be light. 4 Pieces Elegance Set (body) Infused, can only be light. 1 Piece Heavy Kena, Infused ideally but whatever you can get your hands on will do. 3 Willpower Jewellery (Im comfortable with 3 spell damage enchants but feel free to change it up with regen/cost reduction) EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE ENCHANTED WITH MAGICKA RUNES. Magicka - 64 Health - 0 Stamina - 0
Pretty cookie cutter in terms of skills that are used but the gear is different to what is usually used. I like to switch out Harness Magicka for Lightning Form every so often but the 20k+ Shields are too good to pass up. Structured Entropy can be changed out for Inner Light to stack up EVEN MORE maximum Magicka but you will lose out on the 20% extra spell power from Entropy but you can compensate for this with Essence of Spell Power potions. I recommend the potions that give Detection, Major Sorcery and Restore Magicka since the Spell Critical chance increase of the other major Spell Power potion is wasted because of Inner Light. I recommend Blue food (Max HP + Magicka) but if you are comfortable with the Green food (Max Magicka) go for it! Purple food is useful if you feel like you can't manage your lack of Stamina very well or you are lacking in Champion Points to level Tumbling. I also use Tri-Potions since I lack the extra Stamina given by Purple food.
Champion Point Tips
Green tree: Magician - 48, Arcanist - 80, Tumbling - 39. Blue tree: Elemental Expert - 100, Spell Erosion - 67. Red tree: Bastion - 100, Hardy - 60, Elemental Defender - 7. I've played around with maxing out Hardy and Elemental Defender instead of Bastion but it feels weaker than having 20k+ shields.
I’ve made a typo with the Shadow Dancer pieces. I meant to have 2 body pieces + weapons not 3 body pieces.
As far as attributes go every point goes I to magicka? I feel like this build would be pretty hard early leveling solo
64 points into magicka. Most important attribute to sorcs.
Can you show also pasives in builders like this one ? http://www.eso-skillfactory.com/en/build-planer/
All Sorc passives except Expert Summoner and Rebate. All Destro and Resto Passives. All Light Armor passives. Slayer, Banish the Wicked and Skilled Tracker in Fighters Guild tree. All Mages Guild passives. All Racial passives. All Alliance War Assault tree passives and whatever Support tree passives you want. Maxed Undaunted Mettle passive, max Undaunted Command if you feel like it.
Vamp or ww? I’m having a lot of fun with it on my Argonion currently 39k mag and 3k damage.I went a lot into cost reduction too. Thanks
Vampire. Werewolf offers nothing to magicka sorcs. Glad you enjoy it!
Great info, I can’t wait to try this build. Mundus stone?
I prefer Atronach since I have no regen.
What about the 5 piece bonus from Necropotence? Having a pet active boosts max magicka by about 3600. How could that be worked in here?
