General Info

 

  • Potion of Choice: Tri-Stat Potion

DUNGEONS AND TRIALS SKILL ROTATION:

  • Pre-buff with Leeching Vines, Ice fortress, Bull Netch, and Shimmering Shield.
  • Then Drop Endless Hail and Razor Caltrops. 
  • Then use Pierce Armor to taunt the enemy and Heroic Slash to afflict Maim (reduce enemy damage dealt)
  • Use Polar Winds and Shimmering Shield for Survivability.
  • Use Spell Symmetry too Restore Magicka and to reduce the cost of your next Magicka ability, I recommend to spend it on either Polar Winds or Shimmering Shield. (BUT BEWARE, this ability costs Health to cast)
  • Keep Leeching Vines and Ice Fortress up at all times.
  • Use Reviving Barrier when you are in a tight spot (AKA about to DIE!) or too keep yourself alive while resurrecting another player.

SKILL FLEX OPTION:

  • You can replace Spell Symmetry with Bull Netch if you don't feel comfortable with exchanging Health for Magicka. In that case, keep Bull Netch up at all times

FOR PLAYERS WHO USE WEREWOLF:

  • Replace Permafrost with your Werewolf Ultimate (Pack Leader Morph)
    • Werewolf Skills
      • Brutal Pounce
      • Hircine's Rage
      • Howl of Despair
      • Deafening Roar
      • Claws of Life

RACE SELECTION

  • PLAY WHATEVER YOU WANT TO PLAY! But if you really care about Min-Maxing for races and builds, then Nord or Argonian are the best races for this Build. But honestly, it doesn't really matter for general gameplay.

Thanks to Alcast for the PVE Warden Tank Build, that has been the main inspiration for this one, (recommend you check him out!)

    CONCERNING THE LOW RATING OF THIS BUILD: I made some stats errors that originally broke this build when I first uploaded it. I would appreciate it if the people who originally gave this build a low rating would return and give it another shot since those errors have since been fixed. Thank you.
