Solo Warden HYBRID PVE Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The Winter’s Revenge Build is a Unique HYBRID Solo build for The Elder Scrolls Online, mixing Two-Handed and Bow Abilities with the Warden’s strong Ice Magic! This build is equally amazing in terms of both offensive and defensive power and just as much fun to play!!

Primary Sets

As a hybrid build for The Elder Scrolls Online we need to invest into both Weapon and Spell damage as well as Stamina and Magicka. Two great options for this are New Moon Acolyte and Shacklebreaker which fully buffed will give us lots of raw stats and damage.

For the Monster Set, Iceheart will be a great option for increasing the overall survival of this build as well fitting in with the Ice Warden theme.

New Moon Acolyte

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 833 Weapon Critical, Adds 833 Spell Critical
(3 items) Adds 129 Weapon Damage and Spell Damage
(4 items) Adds 1487 Physical Penetration, Adds 1487 Spell Penetration
(5 items) Adds 401 Weapon Damage and Spell Damage. Increases the cost of your active abilities by 5%.

(3 items) Adds 129 Spell Damage
(4 items) Adds 129 Stamina Recovery, Adds 129 Magicka Recovery

Set bonus
(1 item) Adds 657 Spell Critical
(2 items) When you deal Critical Damage, you have a 20% chance to gain a damage shield that absorbs 5000 damage for 6 seconds. While the damage shield holds, you deal 500 Frost Damage to all enemies within 5 meters of you every 1 second. This effect can occur once every 6 seconds.

Sets Discussion & Alternatives

For alternatives, sets like Mechanical Acuity will be decent options as these also increase hybrid build stats fairly well.

Consumables, Race, Mundus


The best race for any Hybrid build in The Elder Scrolls Online is going to be Dark Elf, due to their passive weapon AND spell damage as well as magicka and stamina bonuses. On this build, Nord is also a nice option for the extra Damage Resistance and Ultimate Generation.
