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

Changes from the previous version

We are now using a Nirnhoned Dagger on the Mainhand instead of Infused because it will give us overall a bit more damage, very small difference tho. On the backbar we are now using a Nirnhoned or Precise Bow with Double Drain Health Poisons as they give us the most DPS. Gear otherwise stays the same, I also recommend checking out the Article about Stamina Optimization in Raids, so you can see what kind of gear you have available.

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.

Trials & Dungeons Setup

Weapon Crit Pot and Weapon Damage Enchantment active. used VO+Briarheart+ 1 Kena+ 1 Velidreth in this picture.



Gear

Gear Setup 1

  • 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, 5x Vicious Serpent, 2x Mephala or Velidreth with a Maelstrom Bow on the backbar.
  • Vicious ophidian? If you want better sustain, you could use Vicious Serpent set.
  • Briarheart vs Hundings? Briarheart might actually be slightly stronger then Hundings Rage if you are using those sets on Weapon pieces. Very small difference tho so Hundings Rage is definitely easier accessible due to it being craftable.

Gear Setup 2

  • 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.
  • Damage? This setup gets very close to the damage of the Best in Slot setup. The only thing is that you will not boost your group members dps.

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 Venom 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.

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 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.
  • Cutting Dive vs Shrouded Daggers: I recommend using Shrouded Daggers as it can damage multiple enemies, whereas Cutting Dive is pure Single Target.

Rotation

Make sure to keep up Lotus Blossom and Bull Netch at all times.

Endless Hail > Light Attack > Rearming Trap > Light Attack > Poison Injection > Light Attack > Razor Caltrops > Weapon Swap

Restart

Maelstrom Arena

We have to adjust some things to be able to successfully complete veteran Maelstrom Arena. I highly recommend farming Vicious Serpent as it gives the best sustain in Maelstrom arena. I also recommend being at least 500+ CP, if you are lower it will get pretty difficult for stamina setups.
