Gear and Item Set Info
The setup I used to test this is Zaan head and shoulders + Scathing Mage armor and precise/nirnhoned dual swords + Master Architect jewelry and armor with a sharpened Maelstrom lightning staff.
Valkyn Skoria + Julianos + Scathing Mage is an alternate setup I can see working for this if you are not able to get Zaan and Master Architect.
From what I can see, the playstyle is very similar to that of a magicka templar or magicka dragonknight in terms of how the attacks are put out.
You could use Witchmother's potent brew for the regen at the cost of health and magicka, making you susceptible to being one shot, or go with the Health + Magicka food since Wardens are already adept at sustaining their resources.

What about rotation? Would love to see a video.
As soon as I am able i will record a video and post it!
Since i’m kind of new to magicka dps i’ll only get up to 30k with this setup but i’m sure others with practice can get higher.
Still no video?
Sorry, not yet. Recording software got messed up and working on fixing it asap
Just got the video up, go check it out!
This is everything I love playing all rolled up into one build! Thank you so much for making this, I’m new at the game and learning the different ways everything stacks and interacts has been kinda hard and trying to find something that fits into what I think is the most fun to do has been even harder.
You are very welcome! I try doing stuff like this for all classes and specs and enjoy seeing people who improve from using my setups. If you have any questions, let me know.
What about Passives taken?
When i build my characters, i usually go for the same passives setup.
All class, all weapon (not including dual wield for magicka builds, only the last two passives are needed for that), all guild (mages guild for magicka, fighters guild for stamina. A few points into the ultimate gain passive from fighters isn’t bad for magicka either), all armor depending on spec (full light with first three passives in heavy), full racial, and if i can max out alchemy for the bonus to the potion timer, i try to do that as much as possible.
Can I change the race? I mean I rather use a pre-existing character I have which is a Breton instead of the Altmer or is the race essential to this build?
Willie Lee, yes you can change the race of an already existing character. That’s entirely up to you, Bretons have the magicka passives but Altmer give damage bonuses where bretons do not.
