ESO Asylum Sanctorium Off Tank Build

Updated: Flames of Ambition (March 2021)

Information

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

These builds are suitable for Veteran Asylum Sanctorium +1 and +2 Hardmode. For the standard Veteran mode you do not need an Off Tank, although you can use one for safety if doing this trial with an inexperienced Main Tank.

The Off Tank role in this trial is one of the more difficult out of all of the trials. The Off Tank is extremely busy throughout this trial in +1 and +2 as you have to manage dealing with all of the mechanics while also dealing with the mini bosses and perfecting the timing and stacking of those bosses with the Main Boss.

To make this trial easier you want to stack faster movement speed so you are able to manoeuvre around the arena quickly and efficiently. This helps you to survive, not conflict with team mates, and most importantly, stack the mini bosses faster.

Tank Guides for this Trial will be available soon in the Tank Guide section and on our YouTube channel.

Notes

Generally this trial is done with a full Magicka Group composition so the most optimal class for this trial would be anything other than a Nightblade. You should try to be whatever class is needed based on what buffs your group is missing. Some advanced groups play a full Stamina composition which is where the NB becomes useful.

In vAS you can run pretty much any Race, things such as Orc become good here due to the Stamina, Health and Speed Boost. A lot of incoming damage is Magicka and you’ll cast a lot of Magicka abilities so Breton can work. If you are going to run the advanced build with 5 Medium you will want to be a Nord to benefit from the extra resistances. Argonian and Imperial can be nice for managing resources if you find it problematic.

The best 2 options for Mundus Stone are The Steed and The Atronach. If you decide to use a Bow you will use the Hasty Retreat passive so use The Atronach. If you use a Shock Staff then The Steed will be helpful for both the Health Recovery and the additional speed to stack the Mini Bosses quicker.

For the gear setup you don’t need Sturdy gear here as you are not hit very often and you spend more time running and roll dodging around the room. The majority of the trial can be done without blocking anything. There is also a lot of time and opportunity to heavy attack so this is how you should sustain your Stamina. Well-Fitted will reduce your Sprint and Roll Dodge cost which you will be doing a lot of, or you can use Divines to boost the benefit from your Mundus Stone. You’ll want the large pieces to be Infused to benefit from the extra max resources.

Jewellery 3x Swift/Magicka Recovery is the most beneficial and there isn’t really much else worth using. Bracing is not needed for the same reason as not using Sturdy. You need to be moving around the room extremely quickly as the Off Tank to stack the Mini Bosses so Swift if the best trait to use.
