Category: Best Warden Builds
This beginner build for the Magicka Warden class in The Elder Scrolls Online is a great place to get started in your journey. This build focuses on frost-based damage, self-healing and crowd control, making for a very fun play style in both group and solo content all the way from level 1 to level 50 and possibly beyond.
Winter’s Respite is a great all-around Magicka-focused set which includes Magicka Recovery and Max Magicka while also healing you and any group members any time you apply a ground-based effect.
The Frostbite set is another great frost-damage-oriented set that works very well on the Magicka Warden since most of our magic-based skills are frost-based.
For alternatives, I also recommend Mother’s Sorrow or Crafty Alfiq. Remember that your armor pieces can go into any gear slot, meaning you only need to use 10 slots total for this build. I recommend using the Level Up Rewards weapons (Prophet’s Staff) to make up the remaining 2 open gear slots.
Sample Gear Loadout
|Armor Of The Trainee Lightning Staff
|Armor Of The Trainee Frost Staff
Most of our skills cost Magicka to cast, so putting all Attribute Points into Magicka will be the most effective.
Consumables, Race, Mundus
I prefer High Elf for this build thanks to the Spell Damage and Max Magicka. Dark Elf also has similar stats but includes Max Stamina. Breton is another solid option for beginners, having the best cost reduction for Magicka abilities in the game.
