Category: Best Warden Builds
This beginner build for the Stamina Warden class in The Elder Scrolls Online is a great place to get started. This build focuses on Bow Skills and Animal Companions for a very fun play style and will serve you well all the way from level 1 to level 50 and possibly beyond.
Armor Of The Trainee provides great bonuses to stamina, magicka and health. Even though this is a stamina-focused build, the Warden class has many magicka based buffs so Trainee will help with sustaining all of those, plus the extra health is always good when starting out, especially if you plan to play solo.
Shadow Of The Red Mountain is a great damage oriented set, but remember, this only procs the 5 piece bonus on weapon attacks, so keep those bow abilities firing as much as possible! Since Trainee potentially drops in light, medium or heavy, try to get at least 5 pieces of medium armor total (both sets count towards this) to unlock the ideal medium armor passives.
For alternatives, I also recommend Spriggan’s Thorns and Venomous Smite. 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 Bow) to make up the remaining 2 open gear slots.
Most of our skills cost Stamina to cast, so putting all Attribute Points into Stamina will be the most effective.
Consumables, Race, Mundus
I prefer Wood Elf for this build thanks to the extra stamina and recovery. Redguard can also be a very good option thanks to the reduced cost of weapon abilities (great for bow builds) and extra stamina sustain.
