Stamina Warden Bow/Bow PVE Build – Archer

Stamina Warden Bow

Table of Contents


Archer is a Stamina Warden Bow only PVE Build. We are utilizing the Warden’s unique nature and skills to create a pure ranged, Bow only build. A balanced and strong PVE Build, perfect for everyone that enjoys playing with the Bow as their main weapon.

Archer can complete almost every PVE content. For a Dual Wield/Bow Stamina Warden PVE Build you can take a look at Force of Nature.

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

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.

Kinras’s Wrath: Great DPS Set. Briarheart and Tzogvin’s Warband are good alternatives.
