The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMORPG, originally released in 2014, which takes place in the universe of the single-player Elder Scrolls games. Having recently put out their Morrowind expansion, the developers have been putting quite a bit of emphasis on the class that came with the new content – the Warden. Today, in another installment of the long-standing series “Battlemaster’s Corner,” players got to take a look at a build for the new Warden class.
The build in question, called the Zookeeper, was submitted by a user named Voxicity. As the name suggests, the Zookeeper build deals quite a bit with the Warden’s Animal Companionship skill line.
The Zookeeper commands an army of loyal minions to fight for them, dealing devastating burst damage to enemy players and monsters.
This is a build for players who prefer the Elder Scrolls Online PvP content, though according to the Battlemaster’s Corner post, it is also serviceable in PvE situations as well. It requires players to focus nearly all of their attribute points in stamina, though it is recommended that you put a few into health if you’re struggling to stay alive.
As far as abilities go, the Zookeeper is mostly concerned with its Wild Guardian Ultimate for 1v1 situations, and abilities that heal for the cost of stamina. Passives in the Animal Companionship skill like should focus on damage and recovery, the Ice Aura passive from Winter’s Embrace can also be useful to reduce snares in PvP.
The Zookeeper’s gear is somewhat varied. For the head and shoulder, Voxicity recommends players use the Tremorscale, Maw of the Infernal, or Selene sets. For the rest of the body, only the Bone Pirate’s Tatters set will do. And for the weapons, shield, and jewelry, players will find that the Viper’s Sting set works best, though Voxicity also says that players could use a Maelstrom weapon as their secondary as well.
