Werewolf Magicka Warden Hybrid Solo & Group
Werewolf Magicka Warden Hybrid Solo & Group
This build started out as a silly Meme build. I was challenged to make a magicka werewolf which if you play ESO you know is completely ridiculous as werewolves are stamina builds but it turns out that the build is actually really viable in both PVE and PVP content.
So what I've done with this build is to make a character that has both Magicka and Stamina abilities. I have a high weapon damage despite my low stamina pool so I'm still hitting for a decent amount of damage plus I've stacked stamina and health recovery so I'm able to spam attacks.
In Warden form I'm engaging with the maelstrom 2 handed maul which has an amazing synergy with stampede giving me a lot of aoe damage and from there I enter my 2 handed rotation. As I have Stuhn's Favor equipped on my front bar I'm able to get a lot of penetration which works wonders in both PVP and PVE.
For my defensive set I'm running Crimson Twilight which adds another bleed and also give me a huge heal. It's a great set for PVE and can help survivability in PVP. Monster set I'm running Domihaus for extra damage buff and aoe damage or I run one piece Domihaus and the ring of the pale order if I'm soloing more difficult content
Playstyle is to build Ultimate and turn into a werewolf as quickly as possible. Though you'll find you pack a punch in human form too.

Stuhn's Favor Set
This 5 Piece crafted set in my opion is one of the best in game for both PVP and PVE at the moment. Having extra penetration to all your attacks after you hit an off balanced enemy make all your damage hit harder.
The set is avaliable in Western Skyrim
For levelling my character I made a level 20 training set which really helped me in PVP especially in Werewolf as your Roar puts the closest 6 enemies off balance around you which means you can disperse the pain.
This is a great solo and tank set. It gives a lot of health but also offers a large aoe bleed and heal evey 8 seconds when attaking. It's saved my life more than once and provides a fun animation.
If you can get a group together to farm it it's worth getting.
Alternative defensive sets would be Alessian Order and Beekeepers both give you a lot of health recovery which will keep you alive.
The Ring of the Pale Order (optional)
This really is an overpowered ring when it comes to solo content. In group content it's not so desireable as you can't be healed unless you are the one doing the healing.
For this build I only use it for hard PVE content to help with my sustain.
I've chose Domihaus monster set because of the single item bonus of both stamina and magicka.
That being said the two lot item boost damage to your attacks but also does fire or physical attacks.
You're welcome to play around with other sets to suit your play style.
