ROTATION - ONE BAR DRAGONKNIGHT BUILD

This solo Magicka Dragonknight Rotation is dynamic, but don't let that scare you! Essentially, what we've done is put our long-lasting dots on the back bar. We apply them all, then move to the front bar and use our spammable.

Any time all dots are ticking we are using our spammable aka Molten Whip or Elemental
ESO Skills Molten Whip

Swap to back bar to reapply all your dots back there when they start dropping.

In other Words

  • Step 1: Prebuff/debuff with
