One Bar Magicka Warden DPS
A flexible One Bar Magicka Warden DPS Build for Solo and Group PVE! The Build offers different setups for a Trial and a no Trial gear approach. It is also using the Oakensoul Ring Mythic Item to boost its damage and capabilities! Thanks to the buffs from this ring, we can focus only on offensive skills and achieve great damage with this one bar build!
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 Magicka Warden Solo Build.

No Trial Gear Setup
For a No Trial Gear Setup that you can use in both Solo or Group PVE, replace Whorl of the Depths with Frostbite. For a weapon use a Frost Staff with the Precise Trait and a Frost Damage enchantment, so you can have Frost Reach as your spammable and benefit from the armor Set. This setup also turns the build into an One Bar Frost DPS PVE Build!
