BEAST MASTER

Stamina Warden Solo And Group PVE Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The BEAST MASTER Build is a Powerful Stamina Warden Build for The Elder Scrolls Online that is focused around summoned Pets and Animal Companions! Bring TWO Bears to the Battle Field, plus swarming insects and a Gryphon!

Both a Dual Wield version and Two-Handed version of this build are provided.

Primary Sets

The Deadly Strike set provides a TON of damage for this build as we use primarily DOTs and Channeled Abilities.

The Gryphon’s Reprisal Set also provides a lot of additional Critical Chance, Penetration and bonus damage over time.

Finally, Selene is one of the hardest-hitting Monster Sets in the game, while also fitting into our animal-themed build.

Though not completely necessary, the Maelstrom Bow will also help increase the overall DPS of this build.

Consumables, Race, Mundus

Race

I recommend Imperial for this build as it includes a nice mix of Stamina, Health and cost reduction. For more defense, Nord is a great option, while you could also get more damage using Orc or Khajiit.

Companions

If you like playing Solo, this build can benefit greatly from using Companions! This Solo build will benefit the most from the additional healing and defensive options a tank focused Companion can offer, so if you are going to use a Companion I would suggest a full tank build for them. I recommend Bastian Hallix for Companion on this build with the set up below. More information on Companions Builds and Skills can be found in our detailed Companion Guides section.


Recommended Gear

  • All Heavy Armor - Mixed Vigorous and Quickened Traits

  • One Handed Weapon and Shield


Recommended Skills

1. Provoke

2. Drake’s Blood

3. Kindle

4. On Guard

5. Ritual Of Salvation

6 ULT. Unleashed Rage


Additional Skills

The skills below may also be helpful in other situations such as trash pulls.
