  • Relequen drops in Cloudrest(Trial) (will parse highest)
  • Whorl of the Depths drops in Dreadsail Reef (trial)
    Note: Whorl may feel better than Relequen in content as it will provide more pen/sustain
  • Pillar of Nirn drops in Falkreath Hold (dungeon)
  • Kilt - Here is how you get the Harpooner's Wading Kilt

Yes you are wearing one piece Relequen, one piece Nirn on the front bar so you can maintain the 4 piece bonus of both sets at all times. Yes, that means you have 6 pieces of Nirn on in total. Yes this is the optimal loadout this patch ūüôā

ROTATION - MAGICKA NECROMANCER

Explanation: The core of Necromancer rotations looks like this:

  • Stalking Blastbones > Spammable > Spammable > Stalking Blastbones > Spammable >Spammable
    ESO Skills Stalking Blastbones > S > S > ESO Skills Stalking Blastbones > S > S
    -repeat-

  • For this build, the spammable is Ricochet Skull
    ESO Sills Ricochet Skull

  • Stalking Blastbones is your highest DPS ability, therefore the idea here is that you are casting it every time its off cooldown, which means you are casting it every third ability.
    ESO Skills Stalking Blastbones

  • *You will replace the spammable (Ricochet Skull), with whichever dot is falling off at the time, but you will always cast Stalking Blastbones every third ability. If all dots are up, you cast Ricochet Skull between Stalking Blastbones. Enjoy!
