Feel free to skip the intro
So I'm fairly new to the game, played for about a month. Almost quit when I reached lvl 50 with my first character (StamSorc), at first I thought the class was just what I wanted but I got bored of it really quickly, I also disliked combat a lot (animations, and overall feel of it) the reliance on weapon abilities to do dmg, etc. I decided to make another character, a warden. Since I got bored of stamina class I decided to go with magicka this time. I had fun, but damage wasn't that great.
I wasn't following any particular builds, but it looked really similar to this one
. I mainly wanted a character that would deal aoe dmg around himself, (Iceheart, Gripping Shards/Winters revenge, Permafrost really fit into that, I also used elemental blockade once I learned how enchants worked) all that while being tanky. It kinda worked, but damage wasn't that great without ult. Eventually I got bored and decided that I want to play stamina warden.
I have SEVERAL questions, about stamina warden. Since PvE seems really boring, with every class using pretty much same abilities to do damage, I mainly want to use this for solo PvP (Battlegrounds mainly, although I want to try Cyro properly at some point) and solo PvE content. And since a lot of builds are similar, I want something a bit different.
Most StamDens seem to use 2h, with Dizzy swing, Execute/Slice and Forward Momentum. It really is great for burst but I really hate dizzy swing, so I plan on using SnB + DW.
I wanted to use reverb bash + heroic slash, but that just got nerfed. Now I'm thinking about Deep Slash (30% snare + minor maim) + Reverb (for stun only since it doesn't give defile anymore maybe invasion could be used here instead?)
Speaking of Invasion, is a charge/gap closer needed in PvP, or I can manage without it? Is Shielded assault also viable?This is something I've been planning to use https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Special:EsoBuildEditor?id=170449
Maybe even Snb + Bow could be viable? Bow kinda fits the Hunter theme I guess (not really aiming for that but I'm fine with it), would it be good in PvP though?
I want it to be tanky hence plate armor, my main burst is definitely gonna come from Shalks + Selene's proc.
I'm really not sure about gear choices, I definitely want Selene's since it fits Warden. I need some help over here, right now I'm using Fury + Seventh Legion.
Deadly cloak got a buff this patch and it seems really nice, + I want that Major Evasion. I also want to apply some debuffs so it's easier to kill enemies, Major Defile would be awesome if they didn't remove it from reverb. bash. I don't seem to have enough space to fit corrupting polen. But I guess Minor Maim and Major Fracture are enough.
Will my Deadly Cloak proc both weapon dmg and weakening enchant?
Is Crushing Weapon morph from Psijic a viable spammable? It has around 10k tooltip with CP enabled.
What are the stats I should be aiming for? Right now that build, fully buffed has 1100 stamina regen (with food and CP) + another 100 or so from Betty. Not sure if that is enough, I seem to have problems with stamina sustain all the time in BGs. (That could be a l2p issue, I find it hard to land heavy attacks) Idk how well this would do in nCP since I don't have any pen + bad regen.
Hopefully I'm not asking too much.
