Magicka Warden Solo PVE Build Elder Scrolls Online

Magicka Warden Solo

Table of Contents


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 and Vateshran Hollows.

The build relies mostly on the Warden’s strong skills and passives to defeat every enemy.

For an all around Magicka Warden PVE Build take a look at Ice Queen.

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.
