Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Warden Healer PvP Build, Vinacious, for the Elder Scrolls Online!

NOTE: The Traits on the armor can be more of a preference. On my own personal setup, i like to have 1 or 2 Well-Fitted traited armor when having to dodge roll out of situations. The main traits for this build you would want are: Impenetrable, Sturdy, and Well-Fitted. Impregnable Armor helps with not having to put as many points into crit resistance when allocating your cp, but be mindful it will change when you’re in non-cp instances. For jewelry traits, use what you feel helps your playstyle best, even if it is Healthy and Robust instead of Arcane for your warden to help manage Stamina a little better and not have your Health as low.

Gear Alternatives

Overland: From what I had tested for this build, other options for Overland sets that seemed to work were: Crafty Alfiq (Northern Elsweyr), Transmutation (Cyrodiil), Stendarr’s Embrace (Eastmarch), Wisdom of Vanus (Summerset), Grace of the Ancients (Cyrodiil)

Crafted: Seducer, Shacklebreaker, Eyes of Mara

Dungeons/Trials: Hanu’s Compassion (March of Sacrifices), Healer’s Habit (Dragonstar Arena), Jorvuld’s Guidance (Scalecaller Peak), Willpower (Dungeon Finder/Guild Traders), Master’s Resto (Veteran Maelstrom Arena), Relics of the Physician Ansur

Monster Sets: Other options for monster set can be: Symphony of Blades (Depths of Malatar), Troll King (Blessed Crucible), Bloodspawn (Spindleclutch 2), Bogdan the Nightflame (Elden Hollow 2)

Attributes

Skills

Blue Betty Bursting Vines Ice Fortress Rapid Regeneration Living Trellis Healing Thicket
Dampen Magic Soothing Spores Deep Fissure Polar Wind Fetcher Infection Permafrost

Front bar – Restoration Staff:

  • Blue Betty
  • Bursting Vines
  • Ice Fortress
  • Rapid Regeneration
  • Living Trellis
  • Healing Thicket

Back bar – 1h/Shield: 

  • Dampen Magicka
  • Soothing Spores
  • Deep Fissure
  • Polar Wind
  • Fetcher Infection
  • Permafrost

NOTE: The reason for running Soothing Spores on 1h bar is to help balance resources when you need to heal yourself and/or an ally. It is not necessary, but it can help if you run low on your Magicka. If you feel like using Enchanted Growth morph, that is alright as well.

NOTE 2:  Because this build can be flexible to fit your personal playstyle in PvP, some other skill options I had were: Screaming Cliff Racer, Corrupting Pollen, Shimmering Shield, Reverberating Bash, Degeneration, Echoing Vigor, Efficient Purge, and Life Giver for an alternative ultimate.

Tips & Misc.

Since this build is for PvP, it does not have a specific rotation to use in battle. The main things you will want to do is keep your Blue Betty and Ice Fortress up at all times, use your heals effectively as needed, cast the ultimate needed depending on what the situation calls for. Because you’ll be using Bursting Vines, you can also move with groups without having to use your mount, which is VERY useful so you are able to keep others and yourself alive when traversing either in cyrodiil, imperial city/sewers, or in battlegrounds.
