Welcome to my Dragonknight Tank build for Dragon Bones patch. This build is aimed at End-Game PvE content but works as it is on basic overland content.
Here you can find info on how to setup your attributes, what gear you should use, how to set your skill bars and champion points.
Max Magicka: 15000 – 20000
Max Health: 30000 – 45000
Max Stamina: 16000 – 22000
Magicka Recovery: 800 – 1100
10 Magicka, 40 Health, 14 Stamina
Don’t have access to some of the recommended gear or want to use something else? Here’s other options you can go with such as:
You can switch Bloodspawn to Lord Warden’s Dusk or The Engine Guardian.
You can use Torug’s Pact instead of Roar Of Alkosh.
For possible panic situations, it’s recommended to use Earthgore as your monster set.
Ebon Armory can be switched to Plague Doctor or Akaviri Dragonguard.
If you need to be as tanky as possible, you can run Plague Doctor paired with Green Pact.
Item Set Info:
Igneous Shield, Heroic Slash, Green Dragon Blood, Pierce Armor, Balance, Aggressive War Horn
Unrelenting Grip, Engulfing Flames, Choking Talons, Inner Rage, Hardened Armor, Magma Shell

If you’re new to the game or Dragonknight class in general, I suggest you to read carefully what the different abilities do, how much they cost, whats their duration, cast time etc. so you understand how you should rotate your abilities and how they work.
Food: Max Health & Stamina & Magicka Food: Longfin Pasty With Melon Sauce
Potions: Essence Of Health (Tri-Stat), Essence Of Health, Essence Of Magicka, Essence Of Stamina
Increases your Magicka Recovery
As a tank, we don’t have a specific skill rotation, but there’s a few things you need to keep up doing over:
Before you enter combat, apply Hardened Armor and Igneous Shield to gain little damage mitigation and group shields.
Apply Pierce Armor to larger mobs (+200 K Health) and on bosses. Refresh approx. 12 seconds per target. It reduces target’s spell and physical resistance by 5280 for 12 seconds and keeps them taunted to you.
Use Igneous Shield whenever you need to absorb some damage or your group needs shielding.
Green Dragon Blood is your panic heal, when thing’s get tough and you need an instant heal, use it.
Heroic Slash is your damage reduction and ultimate generation tool, use it whenever it runs out.
Unrelenting Grip is one of your Crowd Control tools, when enemy is too far from you, use this to pull it to you. This doesn’t work on all enemies like bosses.
Choking Talons is one of your Crowd Control tools, when you face a pack of enemies, use this to root them to the ground, allowing players to use a high damage synergy to damage them.
Inner Rage is your ranged taunt, use this when you can’t run to the enemy to taunt it with your Pierce Armor or you need more stamina than magicka.
Engulfing Flames makes the enemy take 10% more fire damage, resulting in huge damage boost for your group. Try to keep this up
Hardened Armor is your damage mitigation buff and also one of your flex spots. Keep it up whenever you can, but if you need to find room for something else on your bars, this is the ability you want to replace first.
Magma Shell is your panic ultimate, when you’re facing tough situation and you just need to survive, use this ultimate.
Aggressive War Horn is your main ultimate, use it on cooldown to buff group’s resources and damage.
