Master of Time

Table of Contents


Master of Time is a crowd control, group support Magicka Warden PVP build, balanced around Battlegrounds and in general group vs group gameplay. The Build is focusing on Frost Damage and Crowd Control Abilities to slow down enemies and protect your group.

For a different approach to Magicka Warden PVP you can take a look at Frozen.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Warden Beginner Guide.

You can find more Builds in the Warden Builds page.
