Need help with Solo PVP build

I'm bored of ganking and being squishy on my nb so what are some good builds for solo pvp? I'm thinking of trying out a heavy fury/werewolf hide stam dk, but I think dizzying swing is going to be hard to land on good players. I think heavy stamplar would be easier to use with jabs being a single target and aoe. I'm not sure what sets I should choose though, maybe hundings/cowards gear?

    There are literally so many choices for you!

    Heavy Stam dk
    LA or heavy mag dk
    La, HA, or Med Templar
    Ha Sorc

    Warden (go heavy like me!)

    But you have so much to choose from.

    And you can also add procs (boo! Lol)

    Good start for gear, I'm sure you'll mix it up though by the time you find what you like

    I disagree to fair amount, it's probably not really viable on the one CP campaign though. Plus duels.

    I solo entirely in Cyrodiil and have a blast while I'm at it. I roam Cropsford, Bruma etc doing quests until someone shows up. Plus the reward boxes can give some very valuable drops.

    Well people at the towns are usually pve'ers so its not much of a fight :neutral:

    Duelings kind of terrible, its more countering their class and build than skill.

    You can't really solo too well anymore, too many zergs, too high burst from bad players via procs,, sustain etc..

    Not in the AP towns, they're usually top leaderboards trying to farm free AP

    Edit: Remember I said no CP, there are no zergs in no CP, there are not enough players to make a Zerg there. There is no one defending towns (except players like me) so they flip them for the AP.

    I only run into a duo or 3 people flipping flags. They don't do quests

    Edit edit: aren't you also the one whom pointed out all the low levels incorrectly go to the CP campaign? I very rarely run into low levels.

    Xbox NA sounds like a magical place.

    The top leaderboards here run around in a 24 man taking empty keep for 6k ap then resources 1 by 1 for 1.5k ap for 10.5k ap per empty keep. Top players.

    I play about 1 hour per night in Cyrodiil, usually just quests, had 3 encounters last night as an example, making approximately 10k in that night... And I'm ranked 50th... So you can see how empty it is here...

    @leem1988 , I don't recommend Fury. Despite a lot of streamers advocating for it I think it's a pretty suboptimal choice when compared to Ravager. But honestly, if I were to be running a heavy armor stamDK (especially for no-CP), I would run 5x Tava's Blessing, 5x Viper, 2x Blood Spawn with 5 heavy, 2 medium and dubious camoran throne drink. Play around with how much recovery you need, but running the thief is going to serve you best. DPS off of your S&B bar because 2h and dizzying swing don't scale great (IMO) in 1vX situations because of targeting issues and a lot of the burst from that depends on poor and glitchy design right now - plus, it's harder to land on competent players.

    What'd you run besides 5 ravager on a HA DK? Been looking for some nice sets to run it with (CP). I prefer running S&B on my damage bar.

    I'd use fury/ 7th legion over ravager on a stam dk.

    I'm still running my stamblade with Spriggan/Eternal Hunt/Veli/Kena

    It's not tanky at all, but has lots of recovery and great damage plus I can dodge roll 10 times if I have to then stealth for enough time to recover half my stamina. Depends on your playstyle. I like to kite someone away from the zerg and kill them.

    3500 damage + Spriggan penetration
    2500 stam recovery, 1100 magicka recovery with Orzogas food.

    Probably not a good solo build for everyone but I find it works for me. Plus it's way easier to work someone out of stamina now.
