ESO Builds: Solo Magicka Warden – Deadlands

This post originally appeared on MmoGah.

Welcome to Hack The Minotaur's Magicka Warden solo build for Deadlands and Update 32 of The Elder Scrolls Online. This build allows you to have a huge amount of AoE damage and sustain with just one skill, making this setup perfect for grinding XP, Champion Points, and ESO money. With Update 32, this build is now stronger than ever. This video shows you everything you need to make it work, so please make sure to watch the video for more details:

Build Stats

Attribute Points: Put 64 points into Magicka.

 

Consumables, Mundus, and Race

Food: for XP grind, blue food will be fine. I recommend blue Max Health/Max Magicka. You can also use something with more recovery, especially if you're doing group content or Bosses.

 

Mundus: The Thief

 

Potions: Basic Magicka potions will be fine.

 

Race: High Elf/Khajiit/Dark Elf

 

Gear Sets

 

Mother's Sorrow

Mother's Sorrow is an all-around 5-piece set to run. Using this set, you will get extra Critical chance and Max Magicka. Since you are focusing on Ice damage, you'll want to use an Ice Staff of a Mother's Sorrow.

 

Frostbite

Frostbite gives you more Weapon and Spell Damage and Critical Chance. The set also increases your damage done with Frost abilities by 8%, and the number can go up to 14%, based on status effects you can apply as a Warden.

 

Iceheart

For many players, Iceheart will also be very helpful on this build. Iceheart is a Monster set. It gives you 657 Critical Chance and a free damage shield, plus some bonus Frost Damage to all enemies for six seconds. However, you don't need a Monster set to make this build work. You could run two mismatched pieces or even run a Mythic item and then move one of your other set pieces around.

 

Alternate Sets

You can also use any offense-focused set on this build, such as New Moon Acolyte and Medusa. New Moon Acolyte gives you extra Spell Damage and Spell Penetration. Medusa gives you more Critical Chance and the Minor Force buff for free.

 

Skills

Inner Light: It gives you tons of Max Magicka for free, plus the Major Prophecy buff.

 

Bird of Prey: This skill increases your Movement Speed. While slotted, it gives you Minor Berserk and increases your damage done by 5%.

 

Arctic Blast: This skill gives you a burst heal and some passive healing over time. With this skill, you can deal Frost Damage every 1 second to nearby enemies, and enemies will be stunned for 4 seconds if you hit them three times with this effect. You can cast this multiple times, and every time you recast it, you will get the heal. 

 

Unstable Wall of Elements: This is your spammable DPS skill. It does Frost Damage every time the effect ends. You will also get a free projectile damage shield, which will shield you from ranged attacks. 

 

Blue Betty: This restores your Magicka and grants you Major Brutality and Sorcery, increasing your Weapon and Spell Damage by 20%. You can also remove one negative effect from yourself. 

 

Eternal Guardian (Ultimate skill): This skill rouses a bear to fight by your side. Your bear will kill off any enemy that is remaining after you've spammed your Wall a couple of times. It is an easy Ultimate skill to put on your bar. 

 

Alternative Ultimate Skills

You can also choose Northern Storm. It gives you tons of AoE Frost Damage and Major Protection, and it increases your Max Magicka by 15% for 30 seconds. This is a good option if you are soloing some more difficult content or Bosses. Another good option is Elemental Rage, which can will be powerful with the Ice staff. 

 

Combat Tips

The one-bar setup is extremely easy to blow things up with. Simply cast any buffs you have first, including Blue Betty and Arctic Blast, then approach a group of enemies and spam Unstable Wall of Elements. That's it.
