ESO Stamina Warden Bleed DPS Build

ESO Bleed DPS Build

A Bleed based DPS PVE Build for ESO! The Build is focusing on Bleed damage effects, skills and Armor Sets to provide the maximum Bleed damage possible and create a fun gameplay! “Bleed” is designed to complete both Solo and Group PVE content, as it is!

Our Class of choice is the Stamina Warden because of the strong Bleed damage skills it offers. Combining those skills with more from Weapon and Guild lines, gives us a strong core of Bleed skills to use in our Build! The Armor Sets we are using also boost the Bleed damage of our skills and overall effects! 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. For more Elemental and Status Effects Builds you can take a look at ESO Elemental Builds!
