Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Stamina Warden Build PvP, Nature’s Wrath, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for PvP of all kinds: battlegrounds, Cyrodiil, dueling, and Imperial City. This build can be played in both CP and no-CP pvp without any changes to the build!
This build is a brawling style stamina warden build that can take a hit! With a ton of healing augmentation and a boatload of health, we are able to get a lot of healing over time from the skills we have in our kit. I decided to combine this with the staple Dizzying Swing burst combo on the stamden to make a build that can not only take a hit, but pack a big punch with a massive AoE burst!
Keep in mind that PvP builds are very personal. This is what worked for ME. If you don’t like something about it, change it to fit your playstyle.

Scourge Harvester: Personally, I have found this monster set necessary to run on both of my wardens. The major vitality that is granted by this monster set gives us the healing augmentation we need to help give our heals some respectable throughput! On top of that, the extra health helps make us tankier and pads our arctic blast!
Black Rose: This is a set that will probably surprise a lot of people, but I personally love it for my stamina warden. On top of giving us a line of each max stat, along with some weapon damage, this set gives us 60% increased restoration on the magicka and stamina portion of our constitution passive from heavy armor. Since we are wearing 6 pieces of heavy, we get a LOT of benefit out of the increase to this passive, making it comparable to (or even better than) some of the other common sustain sets you see out there. Since Stamina Warden liberally spends both stamina and magicka, this is the perfect set to help give us a sustain boost. On top of that, Stamden benefits greatly from the 2-4 piece set bonuses, and we can very much make use out of the increased health from all the heavy armor combined with the bonus healing to push our healing numbers even higher!
Warrior’s Fury: Since this build is a heavy armor build that is made to brawl it out, a set like Warrior’s Fury is perfect. This allows us to stack our weapon damage up the longer we fight, augmenting our offensive and defensive capabilities!
Main Bar – Two Handed: Dizzying Swing, Subterranean Assault, Executioner, Bird of Prey, Forward Momentum, Dawnbreaker of Smiting
Back Bar – 1h and Shield: Leeching Vines, Resolving Vigor, Arctic Blast, Ice Fortress, Bull Netch, Healing Thicket
Vampire vs. Werewolf vs. Mortal
For this build you play as stage 3 vampire to gain access to the undeath passive. This passive is needed to achieve a level of tankiness that the build needs to brawl it out and stay in combat as long as possible.
The list below showcases the order in which champion points should be acquired, the number of points you need to place into that perk and whether or not it needs to be slotted in the CP bar. The Warfare CP perks increase your damage and mitigation and are the most important, the Fitness tree has some miscellaneous sustain and defensive perks and the Craft tree has crafting and non-combat bonuses. The Craft CP points are entirely customizable to however you want, or you can follow the list below.

Other Important Info
Lava Foot Soup and Saltrice: Maximum Stamina and Stamina Recovery
Lover – Increased Penetration
Imperial: My favorite race for this build. This race gives you a big boost to your health and stamina, and a massive 6% cost reduction on all of your skills and core combat abilities, giving us a very big sustain boost across the board.

Tips & Misc.
- Maintaining your Ice Fortress, Bull Netch and Forward Momentum is going to be key to maximizing your tankiness, damage and sustain.
- When you need to go defensive, use your Arctic Blast, Resolving Vigor and Leeching Vines! These 3 skills give you a ton of healing over time, and will allow you to continually brawl with your opponents while these skills passively heal you. If you feel you need mitigation for them to do their job, simply block on your sword and shield bar!
- Your primary combo is simple: sub assault, Dizzying Swing, medium weave, Dawnbreaker, Executioner!
