ESO PVP Builds

Update 37 (Firesong) has launched on the live servers! New sets & builds need to be tested before I can update the site. This will take 2-3 weeks so that a decent build will be posted, and in case some early patch changes occur. Visit my Patreon to see the work in progress on the new builds!

The website has been fully updated. If you find any bugs or mistakes, please let me know (see Contact). Thank you for your patience and support!

Warden

Build 1: Frost

Wardens have increased damage with frost builds, due to the Piercing Cold passive and the increased Chilled status effect proc chance and damage. Next to that they have a lot of healing at their disposal, making this class an excellent choice for an area-controlling frost build.

With the high amount of healing tankiness of this class, Wardens are one of the prime examples of strandbrawler-type builds.
