Hi all,

So I decided last night to rebuild my DK for solely PVP focus. He is my highest level (201 CP's) and most seasoned PVP rank. I am using the following guide as a simple road map to build him. I went from Stamina DK with DW and Bow to Stam DK with 2 handed and 1h/shield. Medium armor to heavy and changed my race to Redguard as well.

I am curious if you have any advice or thoughts on the guide or build. Also I am having to piece-meal together my gear since I do not have the recommended gear. Should I focus on +health or +stam with things like rings, necklaces, etc...?

Any help would be most appreciated. My Internet is having latency and packet data issues so I won't be on much this weekend until its fixed so I thought I would get my ESO "fix" by talking builds!

Thanks so much!

huh i think thats an interesting build :)

 

few things i would change,  and well i do understand why he went with infused gear.  but a few more impen piece would bring his crit resist higher.  i try and get mine aroudn the 2k to 2.5k..  that in turn will bring down your over stam stats but that might be something you will want to play with....

 

rings will most likely be the hardest piece to get since you will have to farm that dungeon till you get all of them.... the rest shoudl be much of a problem

Thanks! I am working on the gear now. I got the build where I like it and it works, even in PVE. I am not a DPS machine but I can handle mobs better than before. Not putting a huge amount of emphasis on it as I know the patch may change some stuff up.

well see now that is important part of any build.  you need to like it :0 so if its working for you that's good to hear.  next patch is goingto change a few things.  haven't look into the dks much buts its always good to know what they plan on changing....  and in pvp there are to ways to look at dps.  super high burst where your opponent doesn't have a chance to counter..  or a relentless dps that can out last your opponents resources.  from what i've seen on this build this is a high resource build meant to at least an enemy.... 

 

keep updatign your progress i woudl love to see how thsi build turns otu for you

I will preface this by saying that my expertise is more in MDK, not Stam, but I know a little bit about the green side too... :)

Build is interesting, but lacking. It might be okay if you running with a group with a healer, but it has very low survivability. The crit resist is too low and while Igneous Shield gives a 3 second increased healing, the shield amount is based on HP, so with only 25k HP, you'll only get about a 3,000 point shield which is like half of a hit. This needs way more crit resist. You could use CP, but with only what you have, maybe look at the Impenetrable set.

Shacklebreaker is good, but with that AND the other, that's leaning too much on the DPS end. IMO, you need a damage set and a sustain set. Bloodpawn is meh. There are better because you aren't basing the build on ultis. That stam recovery won't get you through a couple Dizzying Swings, then you'll be screwed. Find a set with stam Regen, or cost reduction. Check out Automaton maybe.

 

This build is really a PVE build that Alcast labels a PVP build. My opinion only, but this is a glass cannon and will lead to a lot of frustration.

Sorry if this isn't a very fluid post... I'm on my phone and the gsch site is mobile-unfriendly... :)

The more I look at his build, I honestly think it's based totally on theory and not actual game play. His CP is wacked. Points in shattering blows and only 11 points in Master-at-Arms?? You would want like 75 points in master at arm's...

You will also want way more crit than he has. This is totally a PVE build, which for that it would do well.

Thanks so much for the info! I have enjoyed the build but its still a work in progress for sure. I do die a lot but I can hold my own pretty good in non-CP PVP. I usually run with a large group and focus on siege mostly. I am just not that good of a face to face PVP'er. :) I have gotten to corporal rank though and enjoying it.
