Elder Scroll Online Mastery Guide

Best Warden Build

Here’s the brutal truth about finding or creating a high-performing Warden character build:

There are WAY too many ESO players posting suboptimal builds on forums that they haven’t extensively tested and optimized.

They think their build is good just because they picked some good stats and items that they hear are good.

If only it were that easy…

If you’re serious about maximizing your characters full potential, you will need to spend hours testing and tweaking your build until you perfect it.

Well, today I’m going to give you a few shortcuts that will allow you to greatly improve the effectiveness of your build by showing you the important things we have learned by doing hundreds of hours of testing for our ESO character builds guide. (More info & link at the end of this post)

I. Best Race Choices for a Warden

What_Race_Should_I_Choose

Race Choices For Stamina Builds:

  • Stamina DPS: The best choice at the moment is Redguard for PvE DPS. Since the Khajiit critical passive was fixed they have become a top contender for maximum Stam DPS.
  • Tank: Nord is the best race for tanking because of their reduction to incoming damage and increase to stamina and health.
  • Balanced: If you want a more well-rounded race so you can switch between multiple roles, you can pick Imperial.

Race Choices For Magicka Builds:

  • Magicka DPS & PvP: We recommend picking an Altmer because of the 4% total damage increase. Dunmer and Breton are second and third options.

II. Prioritize The Right Stats/Attribute Points

Stats For Stamina Builds: To do end game content you will want around 18k HP (for non-tanks) so you don’t get one shot. After you make sure you have 18k HP you should dump all your extra stats from attribute points and enchants into stamina. If you are still leveling up just make sure you keep putting some points into health, if you start getting one or two shot that means you are putting too many points into stamina.

You should prioritize your stats in this order for optimal Stamina DPS Builds:

  • Armor Penetration
  • Weapon Damage
  • Weapon Critical
  • Max Stamina
  • Reduced Stamina Cost
  • Stamina Recovery

You should prioritize your stats in this order for optimal Stamina Tanking Builds:

  • 28k to 30k Health (Fully Buffed)
  • Dodge Chance
  • Reduced Cost of Blocking
  • Reduced Stamina Cost
  • Stamina Recovery
  • Physical/Spell Resistance
  • Maximum Stamina

Stats For Magicka Builds: You will also want about 18k HP for magicka builds if you are planning to do end game content and if you are still leveling just make sure you are putting enough points into health so you don’t get one or two shot by packs of mobs.

You should prioritize your stats in this order for optimal Magicka DPS Builds:

  • Spell Damage
  • Spell Critical
  • Spell Penetration
  • Max Magicka
  • Reduced Magicka Cost
  • Magicka Recovery

You should prioritize your stats in this order for optimal Healing Builds:

  • Max Magicka
  • Reduced Magicka Cost
  • Magicka Recovery
  • Spell Damage
  • Spell Critical

III. Pick The Right Mundus Stone

Stamina Based Mundus Stones:

  • Maximum DPS: Most characters should run the Thief mundus stone for maximum DPS but Khajiit Wardens with a high critical strike chance should run Shadow.
  • Optimal Tanking: The Lord is the best stone for tanking unless you have almost 30k HP fully buffed without it, then you should switch to the Tower for the extra stamina.

Magicka Based Mundus Stones:

  • Maximum DPS: The Thief is defiantly the way to go for magicka DPS builds, the Thief increases your critical chance which boosts your damage more than any other stone and allows you to use your ultimate more often.
  • Optimal Healing: For healing builds you should swap mundus stones to the Atronach, the ability to consistently heal is way more important than your damage output.
