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. You can also find plenty of other Stamina Warden content on the website such as:

Other Stamina Warden Guides:

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

Resource Management

Bull Netch is the Wardens best friend, it restores a lot of Stamina, make sure to keep it up all the time. Artaeum Takeaway Brooth 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 Orbs are used by your healers to activate the synergy for resources.

  • Natures Gift passive
  • Bull Netch
  • Water-Stained Psijic Food (or Dubious Camoran Throne Drink)
  • Vicious Serpent Set (optional)

Trials & Dungeon Setup

5x Perfected Relequen, 5x Tzogvin, 1x Perfected Point Blank Snipe, 1x Maelstrom Bow on a Dark Elf with Lava Foot Soup and Saltrice buff food.

  • Unbuffed: Out of combat, buff food active
  • Buffed: In combat, buff food, Raid Target Dummy buffs, Weapon Power Potion, Weapon Damage Enchantment active.

Gear

You will find 3 different setups here. Setup 1 is the preferred setup. For people that do not have all the gear yet can use the Setup 2 which is easier to obtain and beginners can use Setup 3.

  • Setup 1 is with Trial Gear
  • Setup 2 is without Trial Gear
  • Setup 3 is for Beginners

There are a lot of good Stamina Sets available, you can find more viable stamina dps sets in this Stamina DPS Sets Article. I also elaborate on specific sets that are often used in this article to give you a bit more insight as to why they are used.

Gear Beginner

This gear setup 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.
