Gear for the Stamina Warden Build

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 Setup 1 – Stamina Warden Build

This is the tier 1 setup for the Stamina Warden Build that you should try to get, this is the most optimal setup to achieve high damage.

Gear Setup 2 – Stamina Warden Build

This setup is for those that did not have the chances yet to step into a trial. You will deal slightly less damage than with the tier 1 setup, but not by much. Overall, the gear here is easier to get because you aren’t required to enter a trial.

  • Briarheart Dagger: There is an unique Dagger “Materre’s Bodkin” that you can get fairly easy, instead of buying it expensive in the store.

Gear Setup 3 Beginner – Stamina Warden Build

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential. 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 if you want.

Important Info for Stamina Warden Build PvE

In this section of the ESO Stamina Warden Build we are going to take a look at Buff-food, Mundus Stone, Potions, Poisons, Passives and Attributes you should use.

All these things are important, I will give you one example to showcase how fast you can lose power. Often players forget to use/activate the Medicinal Use passive. Therefore the player won’t be able to have a 100% uptime on his potions, which means he will lose a lot of weapon damage, weapon critical and resources.

Buff-food

If you do not have the money for Artaeum Takeaway Brooth, then you can also use Dubious Camoran Throne Drink.

Artaeum Takeaway Brooth (Max Health+Max Stamina+Stamina Recovery+Health Recovery)
or
Dubious Camoran Throne (2nd option if Artaeum is too expensive)

Artaeum buff food ESO Stamina Dragonknight Build Group DPS Meta

Food buff dubious camoran throne

Mundus Stone

The Thief Mundus Stone increases our overall Weapon Critical Rating which boosts our damage. For more information on Mundus Stones please visit the Mundus Stone Overview Page.

The Thief Mundus Stone (Increased Weapon Critical)

Race

Any race with stamina based perks works for this setup. If you want a complete overview of all races and racial passives, then I recommend checking out the ESO Races Overview page.

Khajiit
Dark Elf
Nord
Redguard
Wood Elf
Imperial

Passives for the Stamina Warden Build

Below you can find a full list of all the recommended passives for the Stamina Warden Build.

Attributes

All into Stamina


Resource Management

Bull Netch is the Wardens best friend, it restores a lot of Stamina, make sure to keep it up all the time.

Energy Orb will always be present in a good group. When you get close to the Orb you can activate its synergy to regain resources.

Potions should always be used on cooldown to gain the maximum benefit from them.

Heavy Attacks help you restore Stamina, if you drop low on resources do a few Heavy Attacks between skills to refill your Stamina.

  • Bull Netch
  • Potions
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Orb Synergy

Rotation for the Stamina Warden Build

Please check out the “Weaving Beginner Guide” which explains how to weave light attacks between abilities, aka animation canceling. This is important to reach the maximum damage potential.

Endless Hail > Barbed Trap > Weapon Swap

LA > SA > LA > Growing Swarm > LA > 4x Shrouded Daggers (with LA) > SA > LA > 5x Shrouded Daggers (with LA) > Weapon Swap

Restart


Area of Effect Setup

This setup here is focusing on an AoE setup, this way you can be more effective when fighting trash packs or just a large amount of monsters.
