ESO Beginner Tank Build

ESO Beginner Tank Build Information

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Beginner Tank Build for The Elder Scrolls Online!

This is a beginner Tank setup for players who are new to The Elder Scrolls Online.

This is a very good, affordable build to get into Tanking dungeons and content, with the main objective being to use easy to obtain, useful Tank gear that will help you on the road while you learn how to Tank.

This builds focus entirely on the Tank and has minimal group benefit or support. This is absolutely fine 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.

This build would be used so you can begin farming other useful Tank sets from dungeons and start doing daily pledges for Undaunted Keys. This setup is capable of doing Normal Dungeons, Normal Trials and none-DLC Vet Dungeons.

The strengths of this build is sustain and survival, both are vital components to Tanking. Sets like Leeching Plate have not been included here since we 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 you’ll want to collect the important gear listed in the Tank Gear and Monster Set pages and combine them for more useful builds such as the Dungeon Tank Build.

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!
