Gear and Item Set Info
I put all my attribute points in Health for maximum survivability, so the main source of stamina for this build lies in armor enchantments. With regular glyphs and the Infused trait on the head, chest, and legs, I kill my enemies before I run out of stamina or magicka.
Since this build focuses on critical damage and stamina, seven pieces of medium armor are a must. To get a high critical rate, you should choose the Shadow Mundus Stone and wear four pieces of the Night Mother’s set along with four pieces of the Hunding’s Rage set for a 16% weapon crit bonus. Make sure to have the Infused trait on the helm, chest, and legs to give you some extra stamina; the rest should use Divines. This combination, along with the Precise trait on both weapons and the bow passive skill, Accuracy, should get your weapon critical rate around 55-60%. With the Exploitation passive from the Dark Magic tree, your critical rate should reach as high as 70-75% against enemies affected by Dark Magic.
My jewelry is made of simple rings/necklaces with the Robust trait, which are enchanted with two stamina recovery glyphs and one armor glyph, granting me a little over 30 stamina recovery and more than 600 armor. It is also viable to switch one of those stamina recovery enchantments for either spell resist or health recovery.
The Thunderous Destroyer is the embodiment of the saying “the best defense is a good offense.” Armed with thunder, steel, and arrows, it is a sturdy fighter capable of inflicting massive amounts of damage while effortlessly staying alive.
The focus of this build is to inflict critical damage to your enemies while keeping Critical Surge up so that every time you crit, you get 65% of the damage as health. Your main source of damage is stamina, but don’t be afraid to increase magicka for some useful Sorcerer skills. The best race selection would be any that is stamina-oriented, such as the Redguard or the Imperial, but choose the race/alliance you’re most comfortable with.
This is a pretty ruthless build made for PvE. You can out-heal whatever damage taken, even from the largest enemies, with no need to stop attacking. You can continue dealing high damage regardless of how hard You’re being hit, so long as You have some stamina—which, thanks to the high regen and easy-to-find stamina potions, is all the time.
