Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Warden Build “Ice & Fire” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Ice & Fire build is created for Trials, Dungeons & Maelstrom Arena. It features the new Warden Class and it will take some time to figure out the best possible setups for this class.

Wardens focus a lot on pet abilities and elemental damage. Both ranged and melee playstyle are very viable and can deal a lot of damage. Unlike Sorcerers, most of their “pets” are abilities and do not require to be double slotted, which is a huge advantage! Only the Bear Ultimate and the Belly Netch count towards “summonable pets”.We are using the Necropotence set which will give us an insane magicka pool, together with the Sleet Storm Ultimate that gives us an extra 8% extra Magicka! It might take a while to get used to the Warden class, as it is a new class and we need to get used to the new skills first!

  • Warden Class
  • Double Destruction staff setup
  • High Magicka resource pool
  • Good AoE damage
  • Good Single Target damage
  • Good sustain
  • Ice & Fire skill setup

Changes from the previous version

I changed quite a few things in terms of gear and skills, so make sure to check that out. I got pretty good dps on Target Dummies, have yet to see if it also works well in Trials and Dungeons. You can decide whether you want to run a heavy attack build with Max HP and Max Magicka Food, or a more Light Attack focused build but then you need to use Witchmothers Brew to be able to sustain and adjust your Health a bit. I also recommend reading the thread where I show various gear setups for all classes that work very good.

Resource Management

The Blue Netch helps quite a lot already with sustain, so thats the first thing you need to remember to keep up.  Depending on what buff food you are using, make sure to have at least 17,2k Health for Trials and Dungeons. Witchmothers Brew can be very helpful as well with sustain, but you need to invest a few points into Health to reach around 17k HP again. If you think you need more sustain, you can always add more Magicka Recovery Glyphs. Heavy Attacks are also a great tool to restore resources and basically a must have for every build.

  • Blue Betty
  • Drain Magicka Poisons
  • Magicka Recovery Glyph
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Witchmothers Brew

Skills

There is only a few changes necessary, make sure to use Elemental Drain as it helps a lot of sustain and keep Harness Magicka up all the time so you do not get any damage to your health! Bursting Vines heal is only hear for a panic heal, if you do not drop your shield a lot then the Lotus Blossum should be enough.Skills
