Dragonknight’s skill trees let you deal fire damage while going for either a tank or DPS role. Going for a Draconic Power build will give you more health regen and armor buffs for a tanking role. Ardent Flame is a DPS skill line with DOTs. Earthern Heart gives you more support options for your group. It is a favorite of ranged Dragonknights.

High Damage Tank Ranger/PVP Aimed

This build is based around ranged combat, with high defensive capabilities in case you get caught up close and personal. My intended use for me will be mostly roaming in gank squads once my build is complete.

The armour of choice is full medium armour for the bonuses to crit chance, sneak, and overall mobility.

The main weapon is obviously the bow, with one hander and shield in the off hand.

Out of a sneak, you will open with Molten Armaments for the increased weapon damage, and break sneak with a Focused Aim, followed by Venom Arrow to apply the DoT and stun the enemy, then a series of heavy and light attacks, reapplying venom arrow as necessary. Magnum Shot and Green dragon armour or meant to be the support abilities while the bow is out, to keep melees at a distance, and heal when necessary. Being that the Bow ability bar is meant for outright damage, the ultimate, Flawless Dawnbreaker is my choice for the passive increased weapon damage.
To Summarize, Sneak>Molten Armaments>Focused Aim>Venom Arrow
while reapplying venom as necessary, and Magnum Shot and Green Dragon Blood when needed.

The off-hand Slots and weapon choice is for when ranged becomes less of an option. The best scenario I can imagine is fighting multiple melees at once. The abilities in this slot are meant for holding out as long as possible while still dishing out sufficient damage. There is no specific order I have in mind for these abilities, rather they are just meant to be used as necessary. They are meant to apply maximum armour and mobility while in melee combat, in hopes that decent damage and the appropriate passives can ensure the kill and your survival.

In terms of armour and weapon traits, I would have weapon and spell crit for my bow for increased damage, and most likely a fire enchant, although for the enchant I'll most likely mix and match till I find what I like most. For armour traits I would pick up traits in increased armour, and reduced sprinting, favoring sprinting to conserve Stamina, as most damage abilities in this build use stamina as the main resource. For armour enchants I would probably mix and match increased magicka and increased health to make up for the Magicka and Health I lack in attribute points. And I might possibly through in jewelry enchants perhaps with decreased stamina use for abilities.

As for the attribute points, I would likely build 10-9-30. The idea of this build is high damage from a distance, which hopefully ensures that I will often not take significant damage, making my least favored attribute Health. My most favored will obviously be Stamina for the increased pool, and increased damage from Stamina based abilities which do the majority of my damage. Magicka will be used for all defensive and survival abilities more or less, so I couldn't bring myself to completely ignore it.

The only hesitation I have on this build, is that due to the abilities chosen, and no ultimate abilities that do outright damage, there isn't much in terms of a finisher ability, and I would have to rely completely on high criticals and sustained damage.

I feel like I'm most likely leaving something out, but even if I've covered all the bases I'm open to suggestions and critics, as well as overall feedback. I look forward to hearing what you guys have to say, and either way, Thanks in advance for checking out my build!
