Gear and Item Set Info
warrior poet set
sword- warrior poet
shield warrior poet
back bar same setup as front
all warrior poet
warrior poet set- a lot of people underestimate this set due to fact that war horns also give you the same result, well war horn also gives you resources which is why it is still useful to us. Additionally this set gives you resistances which is really nice, and yes, I know the warden can produce minor toughness as well for a passive but having 100% uptime on it while still getting strong resists and getting resources from war horn. Now this set is really op.
Ebon- a great health set that is better than plague doctor, yes it gives you less health overall but you’re helping the group in a big way.
malubath- this set will heal you up so fast if you see the beam. The passive 6k heal is really nice but keep in mind that whenever it’s active you heal 30% more. I’ve gone from almost no health to full health with this set because I healed for like 30k with my abilities.
Enchants put Magicka recovery glyphs on your jewellery for sustain and health on gear
traits reinforced sturdy and nirnhoned are your main ones.
We are using Atronach stone for mundus
This build has a lot of healing packed in alongside huge health makes this build impossible to kill. You don’t need a healer in most situations because your fine.
gripping shards is for crowd control and trash fights
bone surge is a great shield
mist form can instaly prevent damage from you just don’t switch bars while this is active.
Enchanted forest is amazing for 90 ultimate you can almost insta heal yourself. In tough fights spam this.
The rest of your buffs reset every 20 seconds so you can reset them together.
vampire is essential to this build Magicka recovery and at 50% health you take very little damage you’ll not notice the fire.
red frothgar for Magicka recovery and health but if you think you don’t need extra recovery then go with health and Stam or if you want a bit of everything go tri food.
ESSENTIAL- whenever you pop a potion on top of the potions effect you restore about 4.6k health Stam and mag. This means that from 0 mag we restore about 13k from popping a potion and restore stam and health as well. Invest in alchemy so you can have 100% uptime on recovery and try to use msg pots for the recovery bonus
we have about 2k mag recovery from glyphs and mundus not counting food you Magicka will Regen super fast so not counting popping a potion. For stamina HEAVEY ATTACK is essential and with about two heavies you restore all your stam. So Magicka regenerates passively and by doing a couple of heavey attacks you get full sustain.
Champion Point Tips
elemental resist 64
damage over time one 64
57 into block reduction
Presumably, Frost Cloak, Frozen Gate and Mist Form are supposed to be Ice Fortress, Frozen Device and Elusive Mist. That aside I think this is a pretty decent build.
The down votes are likely from people who prefer more resources as most won’t accept anything less than 20k. People also hate Warrior Poet, they hate it even more on a Warden – for reasons you have covered in the description. A lot of people can’t fathom the usefulness of Bone Shield and it’s morphs too, despite the synergy granting a longer lasting shield to group members it’s the perfect compliment to Ebon and your heals are going to proc maturation on group members – you have a lot going on to help your group stay alive.
I agree with you, a lot of people don’t understand the usefulness of warrior poet and the fact that extra stam isn’t important. I forgot to mention that if you struggle with resists in certain situations (vmol especially) then use mighty Chudan and pirate skeleton instead.
And yes I got the morphs wrong. Sorry 🙂
I am new to warden but i like your build. I was just wondering is the race have to be argonian or could it be something else?? And if so which do you prefer in the other 2 factions??
The reason argonian is strong is because it has great sustain, whenever you use a potion you restore all your resources as well. For example if you pop a Magicka potion you’ll get health and stamina back on top. A race in the covenant is the orc, he’s going to give you good health and stamina. Another is the imperial, I don’t have the race but he gives you the largest health boost in the game and lots of stamina. Those are the main three and if you want a particular alliance like dominion then you can just travel there now because of one Tamriel. What I mean is that when you start at wherever, just travel to vuhkel guard and experience it.
Do you know combat metrics? it’s a nice add-on that show you your buff, and at the end of the fight you can see uptime. and i pretty sure that in ALL the fight you have an uptime above 95% of minor toughness only with the passive. It duration is 10 secondes and proc every time you heal yourself (every 2 secondes with polar wind). You also should use the taunt from Undaunted skill. And look how works the CP points (and how much you gain from 78 elfborn and 100 elfborn for example)
I’ve got a new build, the simple tank out.
Have a look at it!
The skill rotations normally how would they go like?
