ESO Dragonknight Stamina DPS Build


Who doesn’t want to experience having a ton of damage in ESO? Well, in the PvE combat, the more damage you deal, the more dangerous you will be, as you have someone there to keep you alive. Here we have an ESO Dragonknight Stamina DPS Build you are a primary damage dealer of the team and your main focus is Damage Per Second.

This Build is made for people who are looking to add something extra to their Dragonknight Class that can buff you up for both Single and PvE combat. So, without any further delay, let's hop into the Build itself.

Background for Dragonknight Stamina DPS Build


We are using the Dragonknight class because of abilities associated with both the dual wield and the bow. The reason for using this Class is that in the typical Stamina DPS case, we need a ton of damage as a buff and Dragonknight is just what you need here. It is not direct damage, but rather something like a scaling that deals extra damage to enemies with a specific percentage of health also referred to as DPS or Damage per Second.

This build works on the concept of scaling when enemies are under the 25 or 50 percent mark of health, therefore we will use mostly the DoT abilities to deal damage in this build. For this reason, the more your enemies are low on health, the more dangerous you will become.

The amount of damage you deal is around 60k minimum DPS to a trial dummy (Iron Atronach) and around 40k minimum damage to a typical dummy with health around 3M. Therefore, you are a beast when it comes to delivering damage in PVE, as you rely on your allies for survivability.

Race Selection for Dragonknight Stamina DPS Build


For the selection of Race, there are quite a lot of choices you can go for like;

Redguard Race: This Race lessens the weapon ability cost by around 8 percent, enhances the stamina to around 2k and when dealing damage directly, you restore 950 Stamina after five seconds.

Orc Race: This Race also enhances the damage of your weapon to around 258 and enhances the overall Stamina to around 2k, which is the same as the Redguard.

If you don’t like these two races, you can go for the Imperial Race as well.

Point Division for Dragonknight Stamina DPS Build


The good aspect of this build is that you don’t have to focus on the Magicka, at all. So, your focus is shifted towards more on the Stamina, while the second focus here is your Health.

DPS might be great for damage but it surely does take a hit on your Stamina and it drains quickly. Being a PvE recommended build, you do have someone in the team to help you out in surviving. In case you are going solo, you can put some points into the Health Segment as well, which can increase your chances of surviving alone.

Final Verdict for Dragonknight Stamina DPS Build

In the PvE Scenario, you need to have something that deals lethal damage to enemies. The Dragonknight Stamina DPS Build in ESO surely covers this up by providing you with a set of abilities to do DPS damage while also covering both the aspects of Melee and Ranged combat.

Even if you want to use this Build for Solo Gameplay, you can do so by using the abilities mentioned in this Build Guide. Further, the Build works on two scenarios; one for the 50 percent health of enemies and one for the 25 percent health of enemies to deal burst damage to them. There is nothing too complex here, but rather a Build that takes a lot of Stamina, so you need to keep that in check.
