ESO PvE DPS Penetration Optimization

ESO PvE DPS Penetration Optimization

This guide covers how to optimize your penetration as a damage dealer in PvE in The Elder Scrolls Online. Making sure your character has the proper amount of penetration is crucial to make sure you’re pumping out the maximum amount of damage you can be by bypassing your enemies’ defense (aka resistance). If your penetration is too low, you’ll be dealing less damage than your teammates. But, if you have too much, you’ll be wasting stats, and therefore again be dealing less damage than your teammates. The bullet points below shows how to optimize your penetration for PvE content based on common augmentations you’ll get from your own gear as well as your raid/dungeon party. Certain classes like Necromancer have additional penetration bonuses from their passives, so keep that in mind if you play that class as that may change some numbers!

NOTE: Enemies in PvE content in ESO have 18.2k resistance.
