General Info

 

Super balanced! Overland solo, dungeon tank, pvp survivability and kills.

Take time to review passives. You get major boosts to your health and damage mitigation from both Warden and Nord passives and abilities. Use at least one weapon damage and one spell damage glyph on your jewelry. Frost staff passives allow you to tank with magicka if your stamina is low, but with Bull Netch and the provisions you should be good on stam. I'd suggest reduce cost of spells enchantment for the amulet.

The Lady or The Steed boon depending on your situation. Run at least 5 divines traits, 2 impen, one sturdy on shield.

Swap to destructive clench on the staff for pvp. The extra CC goes along way. I'm also using Power Bash instead of Reverb for the extra damage and also because I'm using Corrupting Pollen. It has a wide area and distance, hard for enemy players to get away from.

Play around with it and look further into the warden class passives, such as Flourish, to understand the balance of this build! Good stuff!

 

Champion Point Tips

 

75 points in to Shadow Ward. All other points destributed evenly across damage mitigation and output (consider frost damage).

    Also forgot to mention, the combination of heroic slash and shimmering shield are purposefully placed to get your extremely devastating ultimate, Permafrost, up as soon as possible. The Enchanted Forest ultimate is there for emergency use but also gives ult back to help get it up again.

      Not sure how the heck this happened, but I totally missed adding the Ice Fortress skill in there. Crucial damage mitigation skill and needs to be a main one. So basic, I forgot it, haha… Substitute out, Winters Revenge or Power Slam, depending on your style.

      Also, thought that I’d mention that you can taunt with your ice staff from range with a heavy attack once you have the tanking passives unlocked for destructive staves.

    Hi

    Might be a dumb question but can you give me the exact attribute points you did for this?

    Thanks!
