Liko with the help of Rosskag goes over Stamina Sorcerer PvE DPS'ing in the video below. Make sure to support Liko at his Patreon! And check out his website,, a friend of the ESO University website!

Two parses will also be shown below - one with the new Sorcerer spammable skill, Crystal Weapon and one with Rapid Strikes from the Dual Wield skill-line.

Crystal Weapon is an interesting one, it provides a group debuff that reduces enemy armour by 1,000.

On the dummy, Rapid Strikes proves to be slightly stronger, but with Crystal Weapon looks to be a winner if the debuff ends up impacting Blue CP allocation, and also due to the fact that instant cast abilities are generally more favourable than channeled skills, such as Rapid Strikes, in a multitude of encounters. 


Typical rotation is a 10-second rotation because Arrow Barrage, Poison Injection, Rending Slashes and Consuming Trap are each 10 seconds long.

The minimum back bar rotation is: Arrow Barrage - Poison Injection. You should also cast Hurricane roughly on cooldown if possible, otherwise, every other rotation is fine.

The minimum front bar rotation is Rending Slashes - Consuming Trap and with 4 stacks use Bound Armaments.

If Barbed Trap needs to be reapplied, then you can do so on cooldown or roughly every other rotation.

Rest of time you can cast your spammable and use Bound Armaments when there are 4 stacks.

During execute, the rotation remains unchanged, although if you find a way to slot Whirling Blades, you can use this as the main spammable.

Spam = Rapid Strikes or Crystal Weapon

Start: - Summon Unstable Clannfear - Bound Armaments - Ulti
