ESO Asylum Sanctorium Main Tank Build

Updated: Blackwood (June 2021)

Asylum Sanctorium Information

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Asylum Sanctorium Main Tank Build.

Asylum Sanctorium is a DLC 12-person trial located in Clockwork City. It was the sixth trial that was introduced into The Elder Scrolls Online with the Clockwork City DLC in October 2017. This was the first ever mini trial created where there are no adds between bosses, it’s just a trial with 3 bosses and the Hardmode is a combination of all the bosses together.

These builds will work in standard vAS as well as the +1 and +2 Hardmodes. These builds are most suited to a Magicka Group composition, which is generally used by the majority of groups – however with some adjustments you could work this into a score pushing Stamina composition build.

We have included a range of options for Beginners, Optimised Groups, Advanced Groups and also a setup aimed at a Main Tank who wants to maintain Minor Brittle for their group.

From the Main Tank perspective this is possibly one of the easiest trials once you learn the initial mechanics of the trial. The boss attack hit hard but they hit very slowly, and there are times where you are not taking much damage and the boss isn’t hitting you for 20-30 seconds. Upon becoming experienced in this trial, there is very little for you to do other than block/roll dodge the swipes and then and maintain your abilities, buffs and debuffs.

  • Using a setup like this means you are missing Minor Breach from the Pierce Armor skill. Don’t use a double ice staff setup if you don’t have someone who can apply Minor Breach as you will lose too much damage from the missing 3k armor penetration.

Asylum Sanctorium Notes

Class

Any class can Main Tank this trial but the Dragonknight is most useful for it’s unique group buffs or the Necromancer for it’s ability to self synergy.

Race

Pretty much any race is playable here. Imperial for overall sustain and cheaper Ultimate cost. Orc for extra damage and an auto-heal every 4 seconds. Redguard for Stamina sustain. Nord for lower CP players for additional resistances and mitigation.

Mundus

The best Mundus is The Atronach for the extra Magicka Recovery, there is a lot of Magicka casting for the Tanks in this trial so this is important to help with sustain.

Attributes

Typically 64 Health works best for this trial but it’s up to you to use whatever you need to survive and sustain.

Food

As standard we use the Bewitched Sugar Skulls which gives us Max Health, Magicka and Stamina plus more Health Recovery.

Potions

You can use regular Tri-Stat potions here, there are no special requirements.
