Anyone have any sword and board Stamsorc PvP dps builds? The sword and board being the primary dps, 2h as backbar preferably? Mostly just need info such as skills, armor/weapon sets and traits. Ty

    Ask @CasNation I think he runs a full on dps s+b build. I sometimes run s+b but I run a more tanky build than pure dps.

    Ransack, heroic slash, reverberating bash and maybe invasion for a gap closer. If you have a maelstrom 2h crit rush may be better though.

    I recently started using s&s on a stam sorc and am using black rose (obviously it's really hard to not) the fury pvp set on jewels and weapons and then switch between maulabeth, bloodspawn and veldrith monster helms depending what I'm doing. (I try to avoid maulabeth but when there is a Zerg of opposition players with it on you need to fight fire with fire)

    Skills I use are ransack/heroic slash(prefer ransack as cheaper and debuffs their armor) shielded assault, bound armour stam morph, dark deal and reverb bash with dawnbreaker ult I have tried both morphs and prefer smiting but both reverb and shielded assault are cc so if you can live without the aoe cc and bigger initial burst you may prefer flawless

    Back bar I switch between dual wield and sword and board but I don't use 2h as I want fury bonus at all times and skills are hurricane, vigor, bound armor, crit surge and a flex slot. Depending on what I'm doing flex slot can be low slash, steel tornado, blood craze, defensive stance, immovable, caltrops or anything else you want there

    It's not for everyone but if you soak up a bit of damage and let your wrath passive and fury 5pc build you can hit way harder than people were expecting. Only things that cost magic are the 33 second long surge and dark deal so the deal is pretty much always available to help with sustain. I wear 7 heavy impen which helps black rose passive and gives me enough defence I can stroll around making people mad while blocking, vigor, dark deal and then when the passives are up burst someone out of nowhere.

    Final note I run tripots if you do as well empty your mag pool with dark deal first as a pot fills it back up so its just free stam

    @FENGRUSH has a pretty cool s&b Sorc build. You're not going to do a lot of damage, as it's more of a support build made for running in small groups, but it's a fun build and really effective. Dragon Disruptor, I believe, is the name of it.

    In full impen heavy armor + minor maim from heroic slash Your defensive is high enough to not have defensive posture and if You'll be ambushed by buch of players You'll die anyways so reflecting spell projectiles will not save You.Also there is much less magic projectile users now then before due to stamina FotM. Ransack is main dps skill due to cheap cost and major fracture debuff , heroic slash is used to apply debuffs to target anf buff to You ulti regen. I was running bloodspawn/black rose/2 agility 3 endurance and it was working good. Bloodspawn allows to charge dawnbreaker really fast and additional resists are also nice. My gap closer was crit rush on back bar. For now i would reccomned to not create final build for stam sorc on PvP because update that is coming will change setups so spending gold to improve gear to gold is waste of moneys if You'll need to change it in 2 weeks.

    Nah, most build are stam now. I don't have room for it on my bar in all honesty.

    Gap close > light atrack, ransack, bash > light attack, reverb, bash > light attack, heroic slash, bash.

    Repeat that basically

    I don't have a SnB stam sorc dps for pvp actually. I don't think I ever ran one except in pve cadwells gold for fun.

    I do however have a snb/bow nb dps/ganker for pvp. A few disclaimers in that one though: it's a BWB toon, so I can afford to be a bit weird with my setups. For example, I don't have major brutality. I can afford to do this because blackwater fights are a bit more about sustain anyways. I also only slot snb for reflect, because it offers a great defense against inexperienced players. I can't tell you how many times I have baited an overload spammer into killing themselves on me.

    That said, I THINK you could make it work. I am not a super experienced PvPer though, so I am probably not the one to ask for a lot of advice on. My limited advice is this though: practice the skill ->LA ->bash combo endlessly. It adds so much more damage. Also, figure out whether you want to run ransack or heroic slash as a spam. As a nb, I just use surprise attack. Ransack is probably best.

    So no critical surge, you mean no self heal on critical hits? Isn't healing basically the most important sustain?

    Well, as I mentioned this is a NB BWB build, so...no. I don't have crit surge :tongue:

    If I were a sorc, then yeah, run that crit surge baby. As a NB I use piercing mark, killers blade and vigor for heals in bwb.

    1 kena
    1bloodspawn
    4 alchemist (5th on 2h bar)
    4 marksman
    2 leki sword and shield

    Fully buffed in 5 heavy 2 medium with stam/hp food serpent stone as an Imperial my stats are:

    3900 WD, 34000stam, 30000Hp, 2000 crit resist, 1800 stam regen. I can get more than 3900 WD as a stam sorc.

    Skill bars for stam sorc

    1H
    Reverb
    Pierce armor
    Dark deal
    Crit surge
    Hurricane

    Search for Buran's build.. here it is:

    http://tamrielfoundry.com/topic/buran-pvp-2-4-stamina-sorcerer-sb2h

    Mine is based very heavily on that - although I've switched 2-hander for bow (to safely build ulti from range when its zergy and for the poison arrow to help with finishing) - and instead of rally use crit-surge, and use the s+b closer.

    Ransack is always there but some other skills I keep switching out depending what I feel like (often re-arming trap of the sorc cc's).

    The weakness seems to be in prolonged fights - either taking sustained damage, or getting carried away trying to beat down a full tank - then running out of resources.. Mine is imperial and I'm only 290-ish CPs - so I think I'm lacking some of the sustain options needed to really make the build shine ( redguard passives and more CP in cost-reduction). But as long as I can get out of immediate trouble enough to dark-deal - its usually ok.

    Yes, I said it.. I use black-rose and have resource issues...

    But I'm enjoying it.. Its a decent front-line brawler - tough enough to take some hits, strong enough to dish out the damage and fast enough (bow dodge-roll passive and hurricane) to get out of dodge when zerg-squad turn around and look your way....
