Stamina Warden Bow Build PvE “Racer” – Summerset Chapter

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 but can also be run in trials.

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. Bow builds are still quite the under dog as they are not widely accepted due to the smaller damage output and they are harder to play. However, with this setup you can pull off good numbers and survivability should also not be a problem.

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

Changes from the previous version

Updated and optimized CP. We now use 3x Infused Jewelry Traits over Robust, this drops our stamina low but will increase overall DPS. If you prefer more stamina, use Robust. The difference is not that big.

Resource Management

Bull Netch is the Wardens best friend, it restores a lot of Stamina, make sure to keep it up all the time. Water-Stained Psijic Food (Or Dubious Camoran Throne Drink) is the new buff food that we use, to gain a lot of recovery to be able to do a light attack rotation. You also want to make sure that Spears or Orbs are used by your healers to activate the synergy for resources. I recommend being a Redguard because you will get the best sustain. And you can be a Vampire stage 2 for the 10% extra Stamina Recovery.

Dungeon Setup

Weapon Damage Enchantment, Weapon Crit Potions were active when I took the Screenshot. Gear setup 1 with two Health Glyphs.



Gear

There is a lot of good Stamina Sets available, the Gear Setup 1 will represent the best setup for most situations. I also have a list with a huge variety of combos here in the Stamina Optimization Article. Here are some good Stamina Sets:

Gear Setup 1

This is the most advanced setup that you can get and you will deal a lot more damage than with the other two setups, but the gear is quite difficult to get.

  • 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.

Weapon 1 The Maelstrom's Bow Bow Infused Weapon Damage Enchantment
Weapon 2 The Master's Bow Bow Nirnhoned Damage Health Poisons

Gear Setup 2

With this setup make sure to use Dubious Camoran Throne Drink to benefit greatly from the 5 piece bonus of Bone Pirate. Stormfist can be activated from range and it again increases our sustain.

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. I also do recommend using Dubious Camoran Throne Drink with this setup to get good sustain.
