Fury - Stamina Dragonknight PVP Build
This particular build wasn’t set for release, more of a personal set-up BUT during the Midyear mayhem event in the live streams, this was so popular and i had so many requests that I HAD to release a video. The build is a full berserker!!!
The fury is incredible for PVP as you would expect of course with it being a PVP set but this is where it excels..
The more damage you take the more weapon damage you start to add to yourself. You buff by 30 weapon damage stacking 20 times lasting 5 seconds. Of course 5 seconds doesn’t sound a lot but like many other sets in the game, that 5 second timer resets every time you are hit within that time limit, meaning so long as you keep getting hit your weapon damage will go up and up. When it gets to top stacks, the duration lasts for 10 seconds! That is your kill zone, if you can track it!
The only time you loose this is when you stop taking damage or when you hit max stacks for the doubled duration. This effectively gives you an increased 600 weapon damage when you are right in there!
Damage wise, there is something very important to running down your targets. Poison Injection of course is a massive poison DOT which must always be on the target not just for the damage itself but for the execute power…the lower the target’s health the stronger it gets!
HOWEVER above all, and this is VERY important…Lethal Arrow MUST be on the target. If you don’t hit them with it, you will not hit them with minor defile reduces their healing received by 15% (pre champion point buffs).
If you don’t have defile on them you are probably wasting your time. So many people in pvp have ridiculous healing and you will run out of juice way before they do and you will loose. You must de-buff them and then go nuts on the damage!
Lethal Arrow, Poison Injection, switch bars, Stampede then smash them in the back of the face!
The methods to this depend on the target of course, some require some dizzying swing spamming, but above all you must make sure that your Lethal Arrow connects. It makes a huge difference between winning and loosing that kill!
Now to Heem-jas…A very unusual set and rarely used by most. This set contributes nicely to our base stats for sure but its main perk is that if any enemy (yes trash/npcs too) dies within 28meters, YOU gain major berserk for 5 seconds increasing your damage by 25%!!
This is crazy damage and to take down multiple targets is very strong, the more death around you, the more you cause. So, you can add some tactical play to this especially when near enemy npcs. If you kill a guard while someone is slapping you about, the second the body hits the ground you get a massive boost and the person pressuring you with their damage just received a nasty surprise! 🙂
Finally, Malacath’s Band…O.M.G… THIS one piece set is the game changer! MOST targets in PVP pack impen traits, meaning they protect to hell and back against crits. So when you do crit, you hit like a feather duster attacking a brick wall. However with THIS set piece, crits are 100% removed from your build for ALL damage (not heals) meaning you cannot physically hit that resistance wall EVER!
You have 25% extra damage to ALL damage and 0 crits. Win WIN! Stack this with heem jas and Fury and your are a force to be reckoned with!
Finally the ultimates…if you have enough ultimate (200) Corrosive Armour will grant you “god mode” basically you only take 3% of your max health in damage per hit no matter what hits you, and you ignore all resistances on the targets you hit for 10.8 seconds. However if you are in fast paced brawls, nothing is better than a Batman moment!! Take flight is amazing, high damage, huge gap closer, and mass aoe knock downs. Do not leave home without it, and take FULL advantage of the heem-jas proc if you can before casting it! 25% increased damage from batman is insane! Not to mention our bloodspawn set is now a full set due to Summerset making 2hander weapons count as two pieces, so our ultimate gain is now HUGE!
Risk for reward berserker type playstyle

The more damage you take the harder you hit BACK!
BLOODTHIRSTY! If things die, you get stronger!

Lower Champion Points
If you are lower than maximum champion points do NOT worry! This will work no matter what and of course the more cps you get the more effective it will be, however some hints on what to do at lower cps. I get questions about 300cps, 401 cps, 12 cps? we could be here all day but here are somethings i personally would recommend to prioritize in your damage areas..
Firstly be sure to get 30 points into Mighty, this will allow you access to the 9% critical chance passive and give you a good base for physical/poison/disease damage across the board. Then get 40 points into Thaumaturge to start getting that dot bonus for your skills bonus before then pushing for master at arms and physical weapons expert. . After that push for piercing while evening out your cps until you hit maximum.
As far as the resists are concerned (red trees) get 11 points into quick recovery asap for the res bonus passive and then from there push your critical Ironclad and Resistant bonuses up while balancing your resists between hardy, elemental defender and thick skinned until you have a good even base. Remember in PVP you get hit with a LOT of direct damage, so Ironclad is essential!
For the green trees be sure to spread your cc and survivability first! So Warlord, Tumbling and Shadow Ward are very important. In the mean time balance your cps for Tenacity and Mooncalf until you are comfortable. Recovery is of course key but so is your ability to break and get out of trouble, so get those costs down fast.
Poisons, Potions & Food
Potions really are up to you but they DO offer immunity to cc and recovery bonus while give a burst of stamina/health back at the same time.
Food is very simple, the highest level food you can consume with 2 stats only, MAX health and MAX stamina. There are 3 variations of recipes but all are the same in the stats they give so your choice which one you use.
Immovable Potions – Mountain Flower + Columbine + wormwood + Lorkhan’s Tears
Drain Heath Poisons – Nightshade + Nirnroot + Fleshfly Larvae + Alkehest
Food – Sticky Pork And Radish Noodles – White Meat(1) + Radish(2) + Flour(3)
Garlic Cod with Potato Crust – Fish(1) + Potato(2) + Garlic(3)
Braised Rabbit with Spring Vegetables – Small Game(1) + Greens(2) + Seasoning(3)
Dubious Camoran Throne – White Meat(1) + Insect Parts(1) + Guts(1) + Beetle Scuttle(3
Below is a chart showing the overall gear set-up, noting the optimal set requirements in terms of weight, enchants & traits!
We are using the Lover mundus stone but you can use warrior or serpent if you prefer, this along side passives, skills and bonuses gives us around 20k penetration on a 18200 target and MUCH higher on a tanky resistance target!.
We are an Orc but other races are also usable. Redguard or Imperial are good substitutes, also some people like the khajiit.
If you really want to pusha tiny bit of resistance you CAN go with a medium shoulder (heem -jas) and go with a CHEST of fury (heavy) instead for a minor resistance increase. But it’s not the end of the world if you do not have it.
