2H Stamina Warden DPS PVE

Claymore is a 2h Stamina Warden DPS PVE Build in ESO and an alternative way to play as a Stamina Warden, since it is using a Two Handed weapon on front bar instead of Dual Wield. The Build offers different setups, depending on the type of gear you wish to wear and the difficulty of the content! Claymore is a strong and easy 2h Stamina Warden PVE build, perfect for almost every content in the game.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Warden Beginner Guide. For a Dual Wield Stamina Warden PVE Build you can take a look at Force of Nature. If you are looking for a Solo PVE Build for Arenas like the Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows, take a look at my Stamina Warden Solo Build. You can find more Builds in the Warden Builds page.
