Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Beginner Tank Build for The Elder Scrolls Online!
The main objective of these builds are to find easy to obtain, useful Tank gear that will help you on the road while you learn how to Tank.
These builds focus entirely on the Tank and have minimal group benefit. This is an absolutely fine situation when you are a beginner going into content for the first time. It’s much more important that you are alive, have enemies taunted, and have sustain to perform your Tank duties.
Sets like Leeching Plate have not been included here since I believe they hinder your ability to develop as a Tank so we have opted for gear sets that don’t completely carry you through content and give you the opportunity to develop as a Tank and learn all of the fundamentals required for Tank progression.
Once you have developed some experience within the content you are doing it is highly advised to follow the builds we have in the Main Tank Builds, Off Tank Builds and Dungeon Tank sections of the site.
As a Tank it is your responsibility to assist your group by using group buff and enemy debuff gear but you need to obtain the required experience before you need to worry about that!
