ESO Dragonknight One Bar PvE Healer Build Playstyle

The ESO Dragonknight One Bar PvE Healer Build is a versatile and strong healer build. Oakensoul makes the one bar healer effective because you aren’t required to maintain as many buffs, which gives players breathing room on ability timers and allows you to focus more on mechanics and team health bars. Dragonknights are more readily used as tanks in ESO, but they make viable healers, as well! While they are mostly reliant on healing abilities provided in the resto staff skill line, they are very survivable and have a strong ultimate.


restoration staff

we use restoration staff for main healing abilities.

Illustrious Healing (Morph of Grand Healing | Skill Line : Restoration Staff) – Main AoE heal over time ability with a big radius. Keep this heal up, especially when stationary, also used to proc sets requiring a ground cast ability. This also helps keep high up time on Spell Power Cure or proc Olorime 5pc set.

Energy Orb (Morph of Necrotic Orb | Skill Line : Undaunted) – A great heal over time with burst heal synergy. It’s a slow traveler but does everything for you as a healer. Keeps people’s resources flowing via undaunted synergy passive, huge burst healing anyone can activate and massive heals over time. Only downside is it’s not mobile and doesn’t have great range.

Combat Prayer (Morph of Blessing of Protection | Skill Line : Restoration Staff) – Very important AoE heal that applies Minor Berserk and Minor Resolve, increasing damage output and resistances for you and your allies. Apply these buffs up as much as possible, so use ability as your main spammable.

Overflowing Altar (Morph of Blood Altar | Skill Line : Undaunted) – Altar in a trial is exceptional because the healing it provides during prolonged stationary fights. Moreover, added synergies means more resource sustain for your group. However, I do flex this ability in and out depending on the situation, gear set and mobility of the encounter. Swap to Combat Pray in high mobility fights, from the resto skill line.

Radiating Regeneration (Morph of Regeneration | Skill Line : Restoration Staff) – Great multi-targeting heal over time ability, especially for mobile encounters, also helps to proc specific healer sets. Spam ability to cover more targets if needed. This helps proc our gear sets along with decent healing in high mobility fights, plus you can pre-cast before going into a pull for HoTs.

Aggressive Horn (Morph of War Horn | Skill Line : Assault) – TWO CHOICES 1x for increasing damage Aggressive Horn or 1x for Survival and that’s Reviving Barrier for Alliance War Support. Horn = One of the most important ultimate abilities for a support role. Grants Major Force increasing critical damage by 20%, also increases Max Magicka and Stamina by 10% for you and your group members. Prioritize use of this ultimate, it provides a huge damage boost to your group, coordinate with other support roles if possible to keep a high uptime. Reviving Barrier = An ultimate that applies massive damage shields to group members, and those shielded also receive healing over time. Provides extra Magicka Recovery through Support skill line passive when slotting this ultimate ability.
