(PVP/PVE) MOST OVERPOWERED DragonKnight Build

Check out my build video for what I'm currently running.

Incredibly tanky, strong, and sustainy.

Lol nice build and tricks. Definitely gonna try some
Thanks for sharing

EDIT: Really thanks I am 37 now and failed at the freaking bosses from the fighters guild questline (43 bosses) all the time (died at least 5 times). Now with a few tricks from you I finished the boss off with ease

Very cool, although lots of different things can be done with DKs. Your commentary of "I don't know why you'd roll a DK" means you're only thinking of it as a tank.

I'm running a DK caster, and the aoe it can put out is stupid (but exchanges some squishiness). In the time it took you to kill a single mob, my DK would've killed a group of 5, and if I did it right, not taken any damage. Waltz in, elemental barrier, burning talons (aoe root + dot), fire breath a couple times, done. As many mobs as you can put in there, all dead. He could put up the armor spell just in case, too, and be overcharged on armor for 20 sec.

You showed a great trick on bosses, though, and thanks for that! I also use sword & board, and am going to try it out. Will test out the passive bashing talent, but I don't have any points in stamina so not sure how well it'll work.

Very helpful

Hi,

Thanks Sparky - having just started playing and starting with a DK this was very helpful, I was wondering if you wouldn't mind posting a few other particulars / help / guide in building the right skill tree

thanks

As I was reading this thread I was thinking of the exact same thing. I am only lvl10 but here is my setup, light armour + 2h using Cleave + talons + fire breath for AOE dmg then when I hit lvl15 my switch will be sword and board. However I am thinking of switching the 2h to destro staff. Too many choices, I think DK are really Op.

Edit: oh yeah my ultimate is the standard because if I am fighting a boss I can drop the standard + talons + Cleave and walk away to gain my stam / magicka. I feel stupid OP with this build.

I play a light armor DK, currently VR2. I use the Warlock set for the ~650 magika whenever I get below 33% and the Sun set for the 5% bonus to fire damage. I used Destro staff and either sword/board or resto staff. This video is interesting, I may respec tonight and try it out. My currently spec has insane AoE damage but it is all pretty short range and I am not very thrilled with it in PvP. For PvE I pull with Fire Rune, Burning Talons, Unstable Wall of Fire, Fire Ring a few times and Draw Essence. This will destroy groups of 7+ mobs in the VR quest areas or dungeons sometimes without even getting hit. My 2nd bar is all utility skills.

Anyone know a good light armor caster type DK build for PvP?

Your bash is realy low for vet 2
Mine ins 390 and 520 crit (vet 1). Stack shildbash glyphes on your rings and neck they are buged currently and do more dmg then indeed. (they are going to fix this in the next patch thougt).
Also make shure Molten Armaments is up to do about + 30 dmg with shildbash.
Also think you have to less magika and too much stamina/heath. You can't use the heal often enough to let the stamina reg stay up.

It's over a year old, so I wouldn't bother. Far too much has changed.

Hey sparky.

I noticed this thread and was wondering since you're videos are no longer available, I'm going to be making a DK tank myself soon and would like you to message me your youtube with advice on how to make the build.

A build from 3 years ago will not even be moderately relevant.
