Gear and Item Set Info
on thsi build we are running some more unique sets and a common tank set. our forst set will be x5 peice Ebon Armory. Ebon Armory is a great tank sent and will also help out the group. You can replace Ebon with Warrior Poet or Battalion defender if you want. Our monster set will be x1 peice medium and light Iceheart, Iceheart will give us some spell crit and a damage sheild. This set goes well with our second set which i will talk about soon. Some Alternatives are Lord Warden and Bloodspawn. our final set for jewlery and weapons will be Permafrost. This set gives us resources and gives us bonus health recovery with a damge sheild up. that is why you should run it. Alternatives to Permafrost if you can't get it would be Beekeeper becasue thta set is going give you a lot of health recovery. We are running ice staffs with the Permafrost set or Beekeeper set. the traait the staffs should be in is Defending to gives us a damage sheild which then procs permafrost.
With this build obviously comes strengths and weaknesses. a strength and weakness of this build is that you health may be low compared to ther tanks but we will usually have a damage sheild up all the time. With this you will be wanting to run tri stat food and potions. A well Know tri stst food would be Longfin Pasty but there are others exactly the same wth a different name. If you don't own the Summerset chapter of ESO i recommend you then run Natures Gasp. the skill will heal you and your ally. there is no rotation with this build but make sure your buffs are usually up. another is keep a damgae sheild up at ALL TIMES! if your sheild is gone you may as well be dead on the ground as the rest of the team will join you as the boss wipes. my last tip is use enchanted forest when the boss is above 30% health as northern storm is not needed yet.
Champion Point Tips
i am still working onto getting max champion points as Wrathstone came out i need another 40 points. is say put stats into bolstering your defense and recovery and get points into elfborn to and blessed to increase your healing.
the polar wind is actually Gripping shard and winter’s revenge is actually Arctic Blast. it is glitched for some reason and I am looking into it
I have a similar tank, also a Nord Warden… Running Warrior Poet, Shacklebreaker and Blood Spawn. I like running magicka and stamina hybrid. I use Sword&Board on front bar and Frost Staff on back bar. I can taunt on both bars and it’s cool having two resources pools to tank with since blocking with an Ice staff consumes magicka and with a shield stamina.
Running a lot of the same skills as you too.
yes it seems like most warden tanks can run the same skills which makes it seem like copying but in no way i would copy some one. i usually make my builds on a piece of paper and investigate to make sure i’m not copying. i have checked your build and i think it is also pretty good
