Gear and Item Set Info

 

Hunding' Rage

Helm, Chest, Shoulders, Legs and Feet - All Medium, Stamina enchantments and Divines Trait

Two daggers - All Nirnhoned, 1x dagger and 1x Bow with damage increase 1x Dagger with Crusher Enchant.

For the two handed build go weapon damage increase on the sword just like the bow.

Hundings is a mad damage set with the added bonus of being craftable in any weight and style.

Spiggan's Thorn's

Waist, Hands, Necklace, x2 Rings and 1x Bow (can be any set actually, good place to put the Master Bow if you have it)

Enchant all Armour with Stamina Enchants and the Jewels with Weapon Damage.

I picked Spriggan's Thorns as this build is all about base damage, making every shot count and all skills amplify this.

 

 

General Info

 

Alt Skills for Bow.

Bombard, and Magnum Shot, when hanging out with the trial crowd this is a good switch out for the other two bow abilities.

Alt Ulimate

Eternal GuardianThis BearPlay Style

on a solid hit can crit for 48k! But he is good for companionship on those lonely moore trecks.

Play Style

The Huntress Hits with the Bow for base of 12k and can crit for up to 32k, in what I think of as 'single target mode can bring down most pve enemies in one hit, just start with the Focused Aim and finish up if they need the nudge with one more of anything. 

The Huntress with the Daggers is a damage resistant 2000 watt blender, just keep your buffs up and let your arctic abilities eat the enemies that try to take a lick.

Because the crafted set is made however you like you should be able to convert this build to PvP just with a switch of armor to Impenatrible.

It's a low cost build in skill points so you could make it a crafter as well.

You can make it a Vampire, it will gain resource management bonuses.

You can make it a Werewolf but I would drop the Health points and move them to Stamina.

    Im curious as to why you chose orc for this build?

      Only reason I was asking is because Orc get heavy armor bonuses and a build like a Kahjiit would be better suited for stam recovery and medium armor bonuses..

        Sasek you are right, a Kahjiit would be a superior choice, however I had a character slot free and decided to make an Orc as I had never had one before. All my published builds are accurate to builds I play and test, I will leave hypothetical and paper builds to other people.
        Since then I have built the Kahjiit version, it does about 500 dps more and when those little incremental increases count as you try to wring every last ounce of effect out a Kahjiit would be the only way to go. Consider however the other side of the coin, as a player who enjoys performance and role play it is nice to know that a non optimized race can produce a good quality bunch of stats as such I present to you my Orc Warden…’The Huntress’

        If you desire to communicate further I have a website where I have published the results of over 50 experimental, hybrid and cancer builds for your viewing pleasure.

    I really like the looks of this build and I am going to give it a try as an Imperial. One thing that caught my attention was no skills were required from the Alliance line. For me, that’s great as I dislike PvP.

    Two ?s I do have, is how have you distributed your skill points for this build and are you using the Warrior of Thief mundus?

        Thank you very much. That is awesome. And this character is a blast. I haven’t had this much fun with a bow as my primary weapon before. It rocks.

          I am glad you are enjoying it, there is one further addition that you might like to consider…..
          Put a set of ‘ice heart’ monster into your inventory, sometimes you end up with a group of players that are a little weak for the situation and you need a damage shield to help keep things on the level. Switch to daggers full time and put on the monster set, being a warden you get the ice damage bonus too.

    As a solo player that struggles, I love this build, thank you. I first came here for a decent bow build as I almost always play solo ranged, and now I am addicted to the dual wield. It was difficult for me at first but I’m starting to like it better than my bow and bear combo. I wish this class existed from the beginning. It’s every class I was missing from a certain mmo. (hunter, shaman, druid)

      Feel free to contact me here, I love making ‘prescriptions’ (you tell me the effects you want, I work out how it’s done and post it to you.)

    Is it possible to use as a levelling build? And could I swap in the other dagger ability, the one that opens at level 20? (sorry forgot the name)

    Here is a link to a ‘mouse over’ version where you can click on all the different parts and even the champion point categories and get answers

      The champion points are different than on here in the link. Any reason why?

    The Link is the most up to date as it allows me to do more in the way of calculations and details, I find Eso Academy allows me to generate interest and explain my thoughts but it lacks detail.

    The link you posted now uses 2-handers in the off bar as opposed to the dual wield this build had originally… is that accurate?

    Oh wow, yeah I guess I better update it here. or…people could see the options you could do. I might come back an update it after the Sommerset update as that will change the sets too.

    Final Update for this build today.

    Two versions both links up to date below.

    http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Special:EsoBuildData?id=62314

    http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Special:EsoBuildData?id=25266

    Both versions use the same sets, including the split monster set.

    I have now seen the Bear crit for 90k but only once, I frequently see 70k

    Why is this build clearly a Red Guard Now?
    Good question…when I first made it, it was an Orc on Xbox, I play on PC now and I remade it a Red Guard. Still goes to show that the stats regardless of race are good enough as since I had a chance to do a ‘do over’ I still chose a non optimal race.
