Stamina Warden Solo PVE ONE BAR Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The BEAST MASTER Build is a Solo Build for The Elder Scrolls Online that only requires one bar to be effective! No fancy bar swaps or trials gear needed! Bring TWO Bears to the Battle Field, plus a big 2-Handed Maul for maximum impact!


Primary Sets


The Essence Thief set provides a great mix of healing, damage and stamina sustain, and is a staple for any stamina-based solo build.

The Briarheart Set also provides a lot of additional Weapon Damage, Critical Chance and bonus healing.

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

Essence Thief

(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Stamina

Alternative Sets


Essence Thief can be challenging to acquire but can be replaced with several other sustain sets, including Hunt Leader or Witchman’s Armor. For damage, you can also consider running New Moon Acolyte or Spriggan’s Thorns. Other good alternative Monster Sets to Selene include Velidreth and Sellistrix.

Skills Discussion & Rotation


One Bar Rotation

Buff with Bull Netch and Green Lotus. Then Cast Subterranean Assault followed by Growing Swarm and 2 Brawlers. Light attack between each ability. Then Cast Subterranean Assault followed by 3 Brawlers.

Replace 1 Brawler with the Wild Guardian Ultimate or Bull Netch and Green Lotus as needed.

Two Bar Rotation

Buff with Bull Netch, Ice Fortress and Green Lotus on the back bar. Then cast Arrow Barrage and Razor Caltrops, Bar Swap ->

Then cast One Subterranean Assault, Growing Swarm and 2 Brawlers as before, making sure to light attack between each ability. Next, cast Subterranean Assault, Brawler -> Bar Swap back and recast Razor Caltrops and Arrow Barrage. Rebuff as needed.

When the enemy enters Execute Range (roughly 30-35% health is what I recommend) replace one or two Brawler casts with Reverse Slice. You may still need to cast Brawler at least once each rotation to maintain your damage shield.


Companions


This Solo Build can benefit greatly from using Companions which are releasing with the Blackwood Chapter in 2021. While any Companion set up can be helpful, a Companion Healer will be ideal. I recommend Mirri Elendis for Companion Healing on this build.

Recommended Gear

  • All Light Armor - Quickened Trait

  • Restoration Staff
