Murkmire DLC, Summerset Chapter

Table of Contents

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.

Warden as a Healer has some pretty strong heals and they make overall really good Healers. It will take time to get used to it but once you know it will work like a charm. You have to make sure to get used to where you direct your heals, because most of your heals are area based, for example like conal heals. It is also very important that you play around with the skills a bit to get used to them and see what kind of stuff the Warden can dish out. Wardens also have really great defensive abilities like Frost Cloak that give damage mitigation to group members. Using Healing Ward makes our Heal over Time abilities even stronger as the shield bolsters your group members health and it can refill back to full.

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

Changes to the previous version

  • Updated Champion Points and improved Passive section.
  • Changed some of the enchantments on weapons and jewelry.
  • Added Blackrose Prison Arena setup

Resource Management

The Blue Netch 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 CP 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

Wardens have really strong heal over time abilities, which help tremendously. Especially if we combine it with Healing Ward that bolster our Health to heal back to full  in no time.

  • Healing Ward: This ability only needs to be used if an member takes a lot of damage and drops low on health.
  • Combat Prayer: This needs to be on the group members all the time to heal them and increase their damage by 8%.
  • Healing Springs: This is your main healing tool, its pretty cheap and heals a lot 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 activatd 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: Use this as much as possible, when group members activate the Synergy, they restore a lot of resources.
  • Lotus Blossom: Adds another small heal over time effect, you could swap this out for another skill if you want.
  • Aggressive Warhorn: This is your main Ultimate, it buffs the groups resources and increases the critical damage modifier for 10 seconds.

Other useful skills:

  • Efficient Purge: Cleanses Negative Effects!
  • Mutagen: Can be a nice heal over time.
  • Harness Magicka: If you do need a shield to bolster incoming damage, then use this skill.

There is also a few more, in the end make sure you feel comfortable with your build so you can do your best keeping your group alive!

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.

Clockwork Citrus Filet (Max Health, Max Magicka, Magicka Recovery, Health Recovery)
or
Witchmothers Brew Drink (Max Health, Max Magicka, Magicka Recovery)

The Atronach gives us a lot of extra Magicka Recovery which we need to keep using abilities, make sure to get it!

Blackrose Prison Arena

This section of the build is dedicated to the Blackrose Prison Arena, it is a bit different compared to the usual Trial and Dungeon setup due to how the Arena works and because you fight such a huge amount of enemies each wave.

  • Gear Setup
  • Alternative Gear Setups
  • Skill Setup

Gear Setup

As a healer it is quite tricky in Blackrose Prison. There is a few good sets that I can recommend. I would always slot Olorime because of Major Courage in combination with Earthgore which heals for a lot when you are in a tough situation. As a second five piece set you have some options. If you are new in the Arena Kagrenac's Hope is a really good option so you can res your buddies faster. Sanctuary is also nice because it boosts the heals of everyone. A more advanced set would be the Infallible Mage where you also focus on keeping up the Minor Vulnerability debuff on big enemies to increase the overall damage.

Skills

In terms of skill setup there is nothing really special. I highly recommend keeping up Blockade of Shock to keep procing Minor Vulnerability and Off-Balance. Also make sure to use enough Orbs because they also heal a lot and provide your group memebers with sustain. Mutagen is also a nice heal in this Arena as small heal over time skills really help and in case someone drops low it gives a small burst heal.

  • Mutagen is also very nice for the arena due to its heal over time and if someone drops low it provides a burst heal in addition of removing a negative effect.
  • Keep up Ice Fortress for you and your group mates, this will increase damage mitigation by a lot.
