Table of Contents

Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Warden Bow Build PvE “Racer” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Stamina Warden Bow Build is optimized for Dungeons. It has yet to be tested first in Trials & Maelstrom Arena to figure out the best combos.

Stamina Wardens have pretty good ranged abilities like the Cliffracer and the Subt. Assault, combined with the bow skill-line you can set off some really good ranged damage. I will also make sure to show you a bow melee and a ranged setup. Because sometimes in dungeons its necessary to stay in melee because if you are far away you do not get any healing because you are outside of the group, so be careful where you stand and talk to your healer!

  • Warden Class
  • Medium Armor build
  • Double Bow setup
  • Good sustain
  • Crazy AoE damage
  • Good Single Target damage

Resource Management

Wardens have a few things like Natures Gift Passive and the Bull Netch that both provide a lot of resources when you need them! On top of that we are using the Cameron Throne Drink which provides us with a lot of Stamina Recovery on its own, just make sure to set your health to about 17,2k if possible. If you do think you still do not have enough sustain, then I recommend using one Stamina Recovery Glyph. In the end it is up to you, if you think your sustain is too good you could place 3 Weapon damage glyphs on your jewelry or vice versa.

Dungeon Setup


Gear

Gear Setup 1

  • Twice Fanged vs Spriggan: In case you do not have access to Twice Fanged Serpent set, you could also run Spriggan, all the armor and weapon pieces can be bought via Guildstore, so it is easier to get, especially the weapons!
  • Gear Allocation: It does not matter what pieces you wear where, so use what you have.

Gear beginner

This gearsetup is pretty easy to get, you need to ask a guildmate to craft you Hundings Rage and Night Mothers Gaze. You can buy Agility in Guildstores, if you want really cheap pieces just buy the Healthy Trait ones, then you can actually invest all points into Stamina and you should get to a decent Health level.

Skills

  • Why Shimmering Shield? If you are in a dungeon where you have enemy Mages or Archers, this ability will proc and increase your Ultimate regeneration by a lot.
  • Ultimate? You can also use the Ballista Bow Ultimate and slot Flawless Dawngbreaker on the frontbar if you do not want the Bear!
  • Skill Allocation: If you use a Maelstrom and a Master Bow, then you need to have Endless Hail on your Maelstrom bar and the Poison Injection on the Master bar, to get the special effects.
  • Lightweight vs Rearming Trap: If you want to stay in melee range then you can use Rearming Trap over Lightweight Trap.
  • Green Lotus: This gives you a small Heal over Time, more importantly you also get resources back because you will proc the Natures Gift passive!
