    Any build will do. Just use Pale Order.

    1. Pale order ring - farm leads and get it

    2.For Magicka builds i find heavy attack builds extremely useful, as you have good dmg and near infinite sustain. Xynodes “Easy Sorc build” might be a good place to start, he posted a video not long ago of him soloing falkreath hold HM with it.

    For stam i highly suggest a sustain set with a damage set. Brawler skill for shield, pale order heals you and Master 2 handed to cleave Loads of enemies.

    3. Backbar maelstrom weapon really boost your dmg either maelstrom destru staff for mag or bow for stam.

    4. A major resolve skill is highly useful, personly i dont solo vet dungeons with less than 20k resistances

    5. Line of sight is amazing for stacking things so you Can kill everything at once. Just know your limits and how much you can pull.

    6. You will want a source of major breach to debuff the enemy. Universal options are caltrops and ele drain.

    I have no good rotation, use keyboard/mouse adaptor on xbox that makes it more difficult to train muscle memory compared to a controller.

    What I achieved though, just to give you a "rough housenumber", you can optimize with suggestions from above like Pale Order that I don't have yet:

    finished cities of Ash 2, not solo, but together with 1 other player. This dungeon often is classified as the most difficult of the vet basegame dungeons.

    Build 1:
    High elf, magsorc with clannfear pet. Mothers Sorrow, Torugs Pact, Slimecraw, infused jewelry (spell damage), infused lightning staff to recharge, precise flamestaff for higher crit chance. 2 heavy (legs/chest), 5 light armor pieces.
    We died 4 times at the final boss, then made it.

    Build 2:
    Another build I like for such content is magplar, puncturing strikes as main spammable. Solar Barrage to increase the damage of the staff attacks that you need often for recharging.
    Sets: slimecraw, rattlecage and New Moon Accolyte or war maiden, alternatively war maiden and NMA if you have mages guild level 4 and can use entropy to get major sorcery (as it takes many runs to farm rattlecage).

    Notes:
    Food: corrupting bloody mara.

    As others stated above, heavy staff attacks are part of the concept for sustain.

    It also helps, to have a Mighty Chudan Monsterset available, in case you die too often with slimecraw.
    I slot inner light from mages guild for higher crit chance on all.
    I think with a better rotation you might be able to solo all basegame vet dungeons with such builds.
    Myself I get just 24k DPS on a 3 mio dummy with the templar because of my bad rotation.

    Situation where I fail: Shadas Tear in craglorn, the delve that is like a dungeon.
    While I could clear all bosses well with the magplar (even with suboptimal race, redguard), I get 1-shot by the archmages of the final boss, shada. Gave up after trying 5 times.

    Type "ESO Solo Build" in Google, there are a ton of content providers offering builds for each class. Search Google for "ESO Best Solo Class 2021" and get information with builds, gear, etc. Most people here on the forums aren't going to take the time to give you a detailed guide when so many are available online with just a bit of searching. That's how I know the information is out there, as it's where I go for solo build info- even though I rarely end up using their ideas- but it's a good place to start.

    Right now I have a solo Magblade that is awesome at everything... and I'm running 5pc War Maiden, 5 pc New Moon Acolyte, 1 pc Julianos (crafted Bloodthirsty necklace), and 1pc Pale Order Ring (sometimes Wild Hunt if I want speed). I have over 3500 Spell Damage without enchant buff, over 8000 pen, and 59% Crit. It works great for solo, and having Bastian along as a healer helps in difficult content.

    Heavy attack/easy pet sorc. 2 Pets, Noble Duelist, Torugs Pact, Ring of the Pale Order, 1 piece monster helm of choice, and malestrom lightning staff back bar - infused with a shielding glyph. Does good DPS and great survivability. I'm having a ton of fun with it.

    Also another good character would be a magplar. Heals come from jabs and a resto back bar (for the Hots), and sets can basically be whatever you want them to be. I'd suggest Master Architect and spinners to make sure you can get as close as possible to the penetration cap, but could also swap spinners for medusa. Monster helm could be Ring of the Pale Order + 1 piece monster, Earthgore, Domihaus, slime craw, iceheart, or whatever you need to make you more survivable or do more DPS.
