1 Button Magicka Sorcerer 50k DPS Build

This 1 button Magicka Sorcerer DPS build hits 50k DPS in EASY MODE.
If you are just starting out in ESO, and want to play a Magicka Sorcerer, this is the build for you.
It is so easy to use, and you have plenty of time to move around while doing damage.

The Pets are doing around 10k of the damage, if you can learn how to weave attacks between each spell you will do around 10k more, and using your ultimate skill will buff this up even further.
I see no reason you couldn’t hit 65k DPS this way, but then again there are even easier ways to do that, but it involves more than 1 button.

Race, Mundus & Consumables.

Race: Altmer
Altmer (High Elf) will give you the highest DPS in this build, but I play an Argonian for the fun of it and didn’t race change for the video.
The difference is around 20% higher DPS if you play High elf.

  • Highborn:
    Increase your experience gain with Destruction Staffs by 15%
    Increases your experience gained by 1%
  • Spell Recharge:
    When you activate a class ability, you restore 640 Magicka or Stamina, based on whichever is the lowest. This effect can occur every 6 seconds.
    When you are using an ability with a cast or channel time, you take 5% less damage.
  • Syrabane’s Boon:
    Increases your Max Magicka by 2000
  • Elemental Talent:
    Increases your Spell Damage by 258

Mundus: The Shadow.
With all this crit, the best thing we can get is more Critical Damage.
If you Solo a lot you can run The Lover and get more Physical Penetration, but since it’s more or less the same, I would go with The Shadow since you will benefit more from that when you are in a group.

Food/Drink Buff: Artaeum Pickled Fish Bowl.
The best food for Magicka users in eso is this 2-stat food called Artaeum Pickled Fish Bowl.

Artaeum Pickled Fish Bowl

Alternative food buff: Solitude Salmon-Millet Soup
This is the one I use in the video.
Increase Max Health by 5395 and Max Magicka by 4936 for 1 hour.
But this food can’t be used until you are at least Champion Point 150.

Potions: Essence of Spell Power
As Templars do not get a class skill that can buff Spell Damage, we need to do this with potions or the Degeneration skill (morph of Entropy) from the mages skill line.
If you lack gold to drink expensive potions, just use the skill when in groups. (This is actually the better choice for this Magicka Templar PvE Build).

Essence of Spell Power potion.
Grants Major Sorcery which increases your Spell Damage by 20% for 47.6 seconds.
Grants Major Prophecy which gives you 2629 Spell Critical Rating for 47.6 seconds.
Restore 7582 Magicka immediately.
Grants your major intellect which increases your Magicka Recovery by 40% for 47.6 seconds.
(Potions got a 45-second cooldown).
