Magicka Warden Solo PVE ONE BAR Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The FIRE AND ICE Build is a Solo Magicka Warden build for ESO designed to easily solo most content in the game. Join the powers of Fire and Ice together for an incredibly powerful Warden build!


Primary Sets


The Ice Furnace set provides the namesake for this build, procing loads of AOE Fire damage any time we do damage with Ice (which is easy enough on a Warden build).

Spinner’s Garments is a nice complement to Ice Furnace, as the additional Spell Penetration it provides will allow our Flame damage to hit ignore more of an enemy’s resistances.

Finally, Valkyn Skoria adds even more Flame damage (single target AND AOE) while easily procing from this build’s multiple DOTs.

Alternative Sets


If you want a basic Ice-themed build, Ysgramor’s Birthright will a good replacement for Ice Furnace. You can also substitute any general damage focused sets like New Moon Acolyte, Law Of Julianos or Mother’s Sorrow. For the monster set, Iceheart and Grothdar will both be great options as well.
