Magicka Warden Solo

Welcome to my Magicka Warden Solo PVE Build for The Elder Scrolls Online. The Build is designed for players that prefer to play Solo, challenging themselves in any type of PVE content. You can use it to defeat Overworld Bosses, farm Public Dungeons, complete 4-man Dungeons in Normal or Veteran Difficulty and Solo Arenas like Maelstrom Arena, Vateshran Hollows and Infinite Archive.

The Warden is a Class with good Frost damage and powerful abilities. We can combine those to create a strong Solo Build and complete almost every PVE content alone! If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Warden Beginner Guide. For an all around Magicka Warden PVE Build take a look at Ice Queen. You can find more Builds in the Warden Builds page.

You can use the Law of Julianos set for a starter, more beginner approach, or the (Perfect)False God’s Devotion for better sustain. Frostbite is another good alternative Set. The Ring of the Pale Order is a great Mythic Item you can use for better healing.
