Introduction

Welcome to the Warden Healer Build PvE “Blossom” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Blossom build is created for Trials & Dungeons. If you are new to ESO, please make sure to also check out:

Wardens can be really good healers as they have a dedicated healing skill-tree. They also have access to Minor Vulnerability through Fetcher Infection which can be a good boost to damage for the whole group.

  • Dungeons, Arenas & Trials Build
  • Insane Healing
  • Insane Sustain
  • Light Armor
  • Group Support

Changes to the previous Version

Updated the Gear setup and added character screenshots.


Resource Management

The Blue Betty helps quite a lot with sustain, that is the first thing you need to remember and keep up 100% of the time. Restoration Staff heavy attacks return also a lot of resources, combine that with Tenacity Champion Points Perk that increases resource return on heavy attacks and another 30% from the Restoration Staff Passives and you get insane numbers! I also recommend using potions on cooldown.

  • Blue Betty
  • Clockwork Citrus Filet (Witchmothers Brew Drink)
  • Magicka Recovery Glyph
  • Potions
  • Heavy Attacks

Trials & Dungeons Setup

5x Perf. Olorime, 5x Hollowfang, 2x Symphony of Blades on a Breton with Clockwork buff food.

  • Unbuffed: Out of combat
  • Buffed: Spell Power Potion and Major Courage and Minor Toughness were active when I took the screenshot.

Gear

You can find more good sets for healing in the “Must Have Healer Sets” Article. To be fully ready I recommend trying to get most of these sets and confirm with your raid leader what combinations you need them in.

Ultimate: Aggressive HornUltimate: Enchanted Forest

Skill Explanation:

  • Radiating Regeneration: Very strong heal over time that you have to keep up all the time.
  • Combat Prayer: This is your main spammable as a healer, it needs to be on the group members all the time to heal them and increase their damage by 8%.
  • Illustrious healing: Very strong heal over time.
  • Enchanted Growth: This is mainly here to apply Minor Intellect and Minor Endurance to the group and it also can apply Minor Toughness.
  • Blue Betty: Keep this up as its your most effective resource management tool.
  • Enchanted Forest: Only use this in “oh crap” moments. It is always better to use Warhorn to support your group with more max resources and crit modifier.
  • Budding Seeds: Summon a field of flowers which blooms after 6 seconds, healing you and your allies in the area. The ability can be activated a second time to instantly trigger the heal.
  • Elemental Blockade: Keep this on the ground as much as possible, when that Elemental Shock Blockade is on the ground with your charged trait, concussion and off balance will almost proc on cooldown, increasing group DPS by a lot.
  • Elemental Drain: This ability needs to be on the enemy as much as possible, it debuffs their Spell Resistance and gives Magicka Steal to your whole group, increasing sustain by a lot.
  • Energy Orb: Always make sure that an Orb is present so your group members can activate the synergy for resources.
  • Fetcher Infection: Keep this debuff on the enemy, applies Minor Vulnerability, increase damage taken on enemies by 8%
  • Expansive Frost Cloak: (Optional instead of Fetcher Infection) Gives your group Major Resistance buffs, that way they will take less damage if hit by an enemy.
  • Aggressive Warhorn: This is your main Ultimate, it buffs the groups resources and increases the critical damage modifier for 10 seconds.

Important Info for Magicka Warden Healer Build PvE

Buff-food

Ideally you want to use the Clockwork Citrus Filet as it provides you with a little bit extra Magicka and Health. However, that food is quite expensive, the other option is Witchmother’s Potent Brew that has similar stats.
