Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Magicka Warden PVP build, The Blizzard, 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!

The main idea around the build is to stack as many hitpoints as possible without sacrificing too many other stats. Getting 44k+ hitpoint pool so your Artic Blast has a powerful burst heal. The build will shine at being a damaging support with swapping Artic Blast for the other morph Polar wind as it will give a burst heal to another player in addition to healing you. If you’re looking for a strong and well-balanced magden build, this is the one for you.

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.

NOTE: Clever alchemist is the premier damage set of choice for the Warden, give the ever valuable additional 2 lines of hitpoints as well has the staggering nearly 700 spell damage on a back bar set, allowing the use of the very powerful Master’s Destruction Staves to hit a very high amount of spell damage. There are also some alternatives for choice in monster sets, like Magma Incarnate if you want to provide more group utility or Bloodspawn if you want defense with more Ultimates.
