The Slayer – Build by Caassaa
This build is designed to complete all solo content in the game. You can take up almost all the world bosses in ESO and even solo most of the non-dlc veteran dungeon.
The build is focused on the Maelstrom Arena, since there are a lot of people who have a hard time beating it. Follow this build and you will farm the new perfecter weapons in no time.
- Great for tanking veteran dungeons with good damage output
- Great for soloing overland content
- Great for completing VMA
- Very good sustain
- Good damage output
- Great survivability
This Is you primary heal and it also does decent damage. This will also heal your pets and in groups, your allies. In this build it will burst heal for 12k!!
This is a very good dot. This runs for 9 seconds and when it runs out it will stun all enemies that are close to it. This will really help you out a lot in VMA. Make sure that you don’t reapply this before it runs out.
This Is your acces to major breach and also boost your magicka sustain. The nicest thing about this ability though, is that it is free to cast!! So if you are in trouble with sustain, get your dots out and spam elemental drain. That way you get a lot of magicka back while also dealing a lot of damage.
Make sure this is always on the bosses and reapply on cool down.
I pick this shield over harness magicka because it will also provide a shield for your pets and it is capped ad 60% of your max health. This is really the best pick for this build, if you feel like harness magicka is better because of the sustain, go for it! Just remember that the shield is a little less effective too.
This will be your main spammable for mobs you need to burn down fast. Also very convenient because of the interrupt, which is the biggest reason why this is slotted.
This is your acces to major resolve. This will give you a big resistance and also puts out some damage. An ability you really want to use. Especially when tanking.
This is your heal over time ability. As long as this is on and you land a crit, you will get a big amount of healing from it. It will proc every second when you crit. But more importantly, you get major sorcery from it! Which will boost your damage output by a lot.
This is the most important skill on this build. As long as this is on the ground, you will proc a lot of mechanics. You get the weapon damage from the maelstrom staff, your light and heavy attacks deal additional damage because of it, you proc crit surge, you set enemies off-balance so you deal much more damage to them
When you are tanking a dungeon or even normal trials I tanked with this build, just swap crushing shock with inner rage for the taunt. Easy as that.

I play this build on a Dark elf because it boosts your stamina a little bit and also gives you flame resistance and immunity to the burning status effect which will really save your ass in VMA, but Breton and High elf will also do just fine.
