MAGICKA WARDEN BUILD - MAGDEN META DPS

This ESO Magicka Warden DSP Build is one with nature and uses animal companions to aid them in their quest to destroy their enemies! The warden is fantastic for its unique ability to provide minor brittle to the group, which causes the team to do more crit damage!

  • Kilt - Here is how you get the Harpooner's Wading Kilt

Yes you are wearing one piece Relequen, one piece Nirn on the front bar so you can maintain the 4 piece bonus of both sets at all times. Yes, that means you have 6 pieces of Nirn on in total. Yes this is the optimal loadout this patch ūüôā
