Updated the Build for the Markarth changes.

Build Guide - For the First Time Ever I Narrate



The sets have changed for Markarth:

Engine Guardian x2
Clever Alchemist x4/x5
Way of Fire x3/x5
Malacath
Trainee Shield

Way of Fire replaces Sheer Venom.
Way of Fire procs on LA and Weapon abilities (I.e. poison injection)

Way of Fire is a Heavy Armor set and because of this I had to switch away from EV. That meant I needed a new source of sustain and that is Engine Guardian. The best choice for a backbar set to me is Clever Alchemist; it's craftable and therefore can be medium armor and it's buff carries over to the front bar.

Trainee goes from armor piece to shield to have clever's 4th bonus on the front bar and continue to buff defensive posture.

Running sharpened over Nirnhoned now to buff procs, enchantments, and elemental damage.

The video will give more details as well.

If you have any questions or comments please let me know!

**** Old Build ****

I wanted to step away from the tank builds Ive been making as of late and move towards more traditional burst builds.
This is one of my more "unique" builds, as I have not seen a similar one in game nor posted on the forums.

I use the build in BGs, however I have been in OW a few times with it and ganked a few peeps that wandered into my quest areas.
With CP the build looks even better; but I primarily BG.

Circuit Breaker (BG Gameplay)


The Build:
Sheer Venom x3/x5 (most likely not after update) front bar
Eternal Vigor x3/x5 back bar
Trainee x1
Malacath's Band x1
Bloodspawn x2

Bow Front; SnB Back

Traits: Preferably well fitted then impregnable (I have a whole mix mash)
Jewelry traits: Healthy x2 Bloodthirsty x1

All max stamina glyphs on armor
Weapon damage jewelry x2 stamina regen x1

Nirnhoned on Bow (wanted to help heals because of malacath)
Poison Damage Glyph (over poisons for upfront burst)

Defensive 1h Well fitted shield; max health on shield

The Serpent Mundus

Braised Rabbit with Spring Vegetables Food (Max Health and Max Stamina)

For more offensive choices (because I went with a more defensive set decisions) you can easily exchange BS for Balorgh and/or EV for Clever Alchemist (and go with something other than healthy on jewelry)

The Skills:

Bow Bar: Crystal Weapon, Bound Armaments, Crushing Weapon, Resolving Vigor, Poison Injection, Ult: Summoned Atronach
SnB Bar: Dark Deal, Critical Surge, Hurricane, Defensive Stance, Streak, Ult: Spell Wall

The Combo:
Crystal Weapon, Crushing Weapon, LA, Injection (Canceling for all hitting at once)
If you want a quick follow up; after combo, LA, Crystal Weapon, (Cancel for an immediate follow up hit while arrow is in the air)

It takes a bit to get use to, but the burst is there even without dedicating a whole lot to damage. Im currently running sheer because the pressure it provides after the burst is too good to pass up; however after the Nerf im leaning towards New Moon.

Hope you enjoy! Thanks for taking the time, if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions please feel free to post :)

Special thanks to all the xbox players, and @MurderMostFoul @EtTuBrutus @Beardimus and all forum goers!

    Cool stuff, I tried Crushing/Crystal combos for a minute, was pretty fun but can be tough to set up vs some enemies.

    Maybe try Infused Torug once Sheer Venom is nerfed? Edit: with Magnum and Bombard to maximize the salt flow.

    I made a build inspired by this thread. I've been wanting to put together a burst Stamsorc but couldn't really find the right combo. I ended up with this:

    https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Special:EsoBuildData?id=276863

    Your burst is basically: Activate Overload, cast Crystal Weapon, cast Crushing Weapon then LA > Bombard > Streak > LA > Rending Slashes

    Essentially, you're landing Overload, Crystal Weapon, Crushing Weapon, Flame enchant, Bombard and beginning the Red Mountain proc with the LA/Bombard. Then as you land Streak and Rending Slashes, the Red Mountain proc should hit and a second Overload LA plus Shock/Foulness enchants.

    It's actually some pretty insane burst. It requires a lot of set up and it's honestly not enough to burst a tanky player but it's still pretty crazy. I think this works best in no CP because you're doing a mixture of Flame, Shock and Physical damage so the CP allocation is a little all over the place.

    Honestly, it's not the easiest or most effective build I've ever made but it's pretty funny when it all lands.

    Infused bow, psn dmg glyph

    Inject just to get the dots rolling but don't light attack, Crushing, crystal, light attack magnum shot, into crit rush execute. All hits within a second or so.

    Your bar would look like:
    Injection, Crushing, Crystal, Magnum, Bound (gotta have bound as it buffs crystal, crushing and LA, + passives)

    Crit, Execute ...

    Leaving 3 slots for... Rally, Vigor, and streak? You sacrifice Conversion or drop something I listed.

    You're also slotting Bow/2h

    It would work, but holy cow you're giving up a ton of defense and having to get into melee.

    It also is a...5/6 GCD combo.

    As is it's a 2 GCD combo with SnB back bar , conversion, reflect, streak, and vigor.

    @EtTuBrutus I prefer builds that can be defensive if necessary, this build could easily run more offense (hell healthy traits can be infused or serpent becomes lover with full divines or BS becomes Balorgh)

    Im already working on the version for next dlc.

    Funny Sheer got nerfed when you can just work somethings around and get very comparable proc elsewhere

    @MirkoZ not exactly sure what you mean, like over all or are you saying you shouldn't run even one proc set?

    (Which btw is seriously gimping yourself mathematically)

    Have you been to a BG? It's mostly procsorcs abusing Bombard and Streak.

    You can't do crit damage so not really unless using it for just major brutality. You can use power surge because you can still crit heal, but it is much less, every 3s instead of 1s, and the heal amount is less. It does heal your clannfear if using that.

    Now wait just a minute, I thought bgs were full of DK's abusing Sergeants Mail. No wait, Stamdens abusing Syvarra's, no wait, stamcros abusing unleashed, no wait, health tanks abusing harbinger....now its "mostly" procsorcs?

    jk

    Granted Stamsorc makes a great proc class...decent damage passives, massive mobility, and next patch some extra speed and ungodly regens. They have a good health based heal, 8% more health and can leverage health/proc builds pretty well. Warden is still way, way better for proc builds.

    Once they put aoe cooldowns in game, won't see sorcs no more.

    @katorga By my count high MMR PCNA it's 1 boss mode Sergeant Dk, 1 Syvarra stamden, 1 Unleashed stamcro, and at least 30 Bombstreak[snip] procsorcs. XD
