Stamina Warden Build PvE “Guardian”
Welcome to the Stamina Warden Build PvE “Guardian” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.
The Guardian Build is a medium armor build optimized for Dungeons & Trials.
This is a prototype build, it has to be further tested and optimized. The Warden class has yet to be released to find the full potential of the build. However, with this here you will kind of be able to see the basics of the class and where you want to build it towards! So lets get started!
Also keep in mind, once PTS goes live I will add a specific Single Target & AoE setup.
The Guardian is focused on Dungeons & Trials. We are running a full medium armor set to benefit from as much skill cost reduction as possible. The Warden has quite strong aoe damage as they have a few extra abilities that help them boost it compared to other setups. Subterarrean Assault and Impaling Shards both help boost our AoE damage by quite a bit. Single Target wise we are also using the new Bear Ultimate which will deal crazy damage, this makes the class not rely on Maelstrom Weapons at all.
- Warden Class
- Medium Armor build

Gear [Best in Slot]
Why 7x medium? 7x medium gives us more overall cost reduction and a higher weapon critical rating. If you prefer a 511 setup you can also use it.
Vicious Ophidian: This set will help tremendously with sustain both in Single Target and AoE fights! It is a must have.
Weapons: It does not matter whether you use Twice Fanged Serpent or Vicious Serpent weapons. If you do not have any of those you could also use Hundings Rage as a replacement.

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential of the Guardian build. All the gear here is either craftable or cheap to get in a guildstore. Make sure to ask a friend to craft Hunding’s Rage and Night Mother’s Gaze. Agility jewelry can be obtained in the Guildstores. I do recommend having around 17k health (with buff-food). You can buy cheap Agility jewelry with healthy trait to reach this value.
