Introduction

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 Stamina Warden Guardian Build is optimized for Trials, Dungeons & Maelstrom Arena.

Stamina Wardens have really good sustain with the right setup and thanks to passives like Natures Gift & the Netch. Their Single Target and AoE damage is also very strong. On this setup here we are utilizing a Dualwield & Bow setup, as this provides us with insane damage and really good damage mitigation! The gameplay with this build is very fast paced and it might take some time to get used to the rotation!

  • Warden Class
  • Medium Armor build
  • Dualwield & Bow setup
  • High Stamina resource pool
  • 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.

Gear

Gear Best in Slot

This setup is pretty difficult to get, because it requires you to have either Vicious Serpent or Twice Fanged Serpent weapons with a sharpened trait and we all know that those are pretty rare. On top of that we utilize Maelstrom Bow which also needs to be in sharpened.

  • 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!
  • What pieces? It does not matter how you allocate the pieces, as long as you manage to get 5x Twice Fanged Serpent/Spriggan, 5x Vicious Serpent, 2x Velidreth  with a Maelstrom Bow on the backbar.
  • Infused Weapon? With the new CP we can get quite a lot Penetration through Piercing with only a few points and make up for it on the Weapon. This boosts the Weapon Damage enchantment by a lot and reduces the cooldown of it, its worth it! Also it reduces the chance of overpenetrating the target.

Not enough sustain? In case you do think you lack sustain, make sure to use 1x Glyph of reduced skillcost on your jewelry. That should be enough to gain enough sustain.

Gear beginner

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 18k health (with buff-food). You can buy cheap Agility jewelry with healthy trait to reach this value.

  • Why a Heavy Chest? This will give you some extra protection, so you will take less damage and when you already have undaunted passive, then you will also gain slightly more health.

Where can I get the gear?

Twice Fanged Serpent: Sanctum Ophidia
Hunding’s Rage: Craftable
Night Mothers Gaze: Craftable
Agility: Guildstore
Spriggans Thorn: Bangkorai
Velidreth: Cradle of Shadows

Skills

  • Why this particular setup? As you can see, we have most of our DoTs on our bowbar, so every 8 seconds we can swap to our bowbar and reapply all DoTs and then keep doing what we did in the frontbar!
  • Why Permafrost on backbar? I found this to be a very useful ultimate when a lot of damage is going to hit your group. In other situations I used Flawless Dawnbreaker
  • Why no Bear? You can give it a go, I found that the bear has one big issue, it is not doing enough AoE damage to be good, which is especially important on trashfights or bosses with a lot of minions.
