OVERVIEW

  • Race: High Elf
    • I choose High Elf for its high damage, Magicka sustain was just improved so there really isn’t a need to go Breton. For other great alternatives visit our race guide here!
  • Mundus: Shadow
  • Attributes:
    • Magicka: 64
    • Health: 0
    • Stamina: 0
  • Consumables
    • Food: Artaeum Pickled Fish Bowl
      • Less Expensive alternative: Solitude Salmon-Millet Soup
    • Potion: Essence of Spell Power
  • Vampire
    • you can go Vampire if you would like to use the Blood for Blood ability in the vampire skill line as your spammable. This deals very effective amounts of damage and is fantastic for your sustain, but you will need a healer behind you any time you are using it as it does cost health to cast.

ROTATION

Explanation: The core of Necromancer rotations looks like this:

  • Stalking Blastbones > Spammable > Spammable > Stalking Blastbones > Spammable >Spammable
    ESO Skills Stalking Blastbones > S > S > ESO Skills Stalking Blastbones > S > S
    -repeat-

  • For this build, the spammable is Ricochet Skull
    ESO Sills Ricochet Skull

  • Stalking Blastbones is your highest DPS ability, therefore the idea here is that you are casting it every time its off cooldown, which means you are casting it every third ability.
    ESO Skills Stalking Blastbones

  • *You will replace the spammable (Ricochet Skull), with whichever dot is falling off at the time, but you will always cast Stalking Blastbones every third ability. If all dots are up, you cast Ricochet Skull between Stalking Blastbones. Enjoy!
