Best Beginner Gear Sets for End Game

Best Beginner Gear Sets for End Game

This guide for the Elder Scrolls Online covers the best beginner gear sets for end game (CP 160+). The reason I refer to these setups as “beginner setups” is because they’re very easy to acquire.  With that being said, just because they’re easy to get does not mean they lack power. This guide will show you the best combination of crafted and overlands gear paired with easy-to-get monster sets that will allow you to perform well in dungeons (vet & normal), normal trials, and even some of the easier vet trials.
