Warden Bash - Oakensoul Bash

The Oakensoul Ring has made builds very easy and without the need to buff with the back bar we can stick everything on the front. We've lost some animal companion with this set up on the front bar but it makes up for the sheer amount of extra utility and damage.

You'll have great survivability and a decent amount of damage that will benefit from 11k pen before major and minor breach. This is also a frost based build so expect to slow players down while you bash them to death. There's scope to change the abilities around Frozen device instead of gripping shards will line up more of a combo but will reduce your zoning. 

play around and see how you go.


I'm using a very standard bash set up this build with some flexibility for you personal play style. I'm using Deadlands Demolisher and Wretched Vitality, both of which are crafted sets. You'll need the Oakensoul Mythic Ring for this build to get it follow this guide

Deadlands Demolisher
Type: Craftable
Location: Deadlands
Traits needed to craft: 7
Requires DLC: Deadlands

The best bash damage set. Nothing really comes close to the extra bash damage. Well worth golding out a full set if you're in to your bash builds. I have full gold jewellery and I do not regret it. Again Heavy sets only

Wretched Vitality.jpg

Name: Wretched Vitality
Type: Craftable
Location: Deadlands
Traits needed to craft: 3
Requires DLC: Deadlands

An absolute amazing recovery set. In this build it procs with deep fissure. Tied in with a couple of heavy attacks and you'll not have any recovery issues. The 2 and 3 item bonuses are sub par for a bash build but you'll be in the fight for longer. An easy 3 trait crafting set too. A very solid set!
