Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Stamina Warden Build PvE, Nature’s Commander, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for general PvE, vDungeons and Trials.

The Stamina Warden is a great all around class providing both high AoE and single target damage all while sustaining really well thanks to the passives and skills that the warden offers such as the bull netch.  The class offers a ton of healing through the Green Balance tree and for that reason is one of the more forgiving stamina classes for a beginner to start with.

Other Important Info

  • Artaeum Takeaway Broth / Dubious Camoran Throne (Max Stat and Recovery)
    • If you are having trouble sustaining due to your group support, race and champion points go with this food instead.
    • Races with no inherent stamina sustain such as Orc, Khajiit and Dark Elf should run this food.

Mundus

Shadow – Increases Critical Chance

Race

  1. Orc
  2. Khajiit / Dark Elf
  3. Redguard / Bosmer

Potions/Poisons

  • Essence of Weapon Power (Weapon Critical, Weapon Damage, and Stamina Restoration)
    • Blessed Thistle, Dragonthorn & Wormwood
  • Damage Health Poison IX (Ravage Health and Gradual Ravage Health)
    • (Fleshfly larvae, Nightshade and Emetic Russula)

Passives

Animal Companion (ALL), Winter’s Embrace (ALL), Green Balance (ALL), Dual Wield (ALL), Bow (ALL), Medium Armor (ALL), Heavy Armor (ALL), Fighters Guild (Intimidating Presence, Slayer, Banish the Wicked, Skilled Tracker), Undaunted (ALL), Racial (ALL), Alchemy (Medicinal Use).

Resource Management & Rotation

  • Sub Assault, Barbed Trap, BS Bull Netch, Deadly Cloak, Rending Slashes, Soul Splitting Trap, BS Growing Swarm, Sub Assault, Cutting Dive x6
  • Prioritize hitting Sub Assault every 6 seconds. Make sure to let this ability go off before you activate it, otherwise it will not deal damage.
  • Aim for 100% uptime on Barbed Trap, this will ensure we are getting the most out of our critical strikes.
  • Because we are using the BRP DW we need to make sure we have a high uptime on Deadly Cloak.
  • Look to cast your ultimate on cooldown during each boss fight, unless you should be saving your ult, cast it!
  • Activate your potions on cooldown, this will ensure you have zero sustain issues, and you will have high uptimes on your buffs!

Tips & Misc.

If you’re having trouble surviving feel free to replace Rending Slashes with the alternative morph Blood Craze for added healing.
