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+). I’ll show you the best combination of crafted gear, and then show you how to upgrade your gear using overland and monster sets. Healer upgrades though do require grinding dungeons.

NIGHTBLADE

  • MAG DPS
    • 5 Julianos, 3 Seducers, 3 Willpower
    • 5 Juli or TBS, 2 Grothdarr or Skoria (adventurous), 3 willpower+random staff or 4 mother’s sorrow
  • STAM DPS
    • 5 Hundings Rage, 4 Night Mothers Gaze 3 Agility
    • 5 Spriggan’s Thorns (if you dont want spriggans, run TBS with 2 offensive mundus stones but spriggans is the goal), 5 Nightmothers Gaze, 2 Krag’h
  • TANK
    • 4 Hist Bark, 5 Song of Lamae, 3 Endurance
      • The nightblade tank gear is slightly wrong in the video. I would recommend running 5 Lamae and 4 Hist bark (just to keep with the theme of the gear). Nightblade tanks don’t need the major evasion while blocking from hist bark because they have it baked into their kit.
    • 5 Hist Bark, 5 Plague Doctor, 2 Bloodspawn or 1 pirate skeleton + 1 Skoria
  • HEALER:
    • 5 Julianos, 3 Seducers OR 5 Seducers, 3 Julianos & 3 Willpower
