ESO Blackrose Prison Tank Build

Updated: Blackwood (June 2021)

Information

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Blackrose Prison Tank Build.

This build is designed for completing Veteran Blackrose Prison and there are options for both experienced Tanks who have completed vBRP before and for Tanks who are attempting this for the very first time.

vBRP is quite a challenge for Tanks and this is not designed for inexperienced Tanks. You should make sure you have enough knowledge of basic Tanking, how to stack and crowd control, and how to survive and sustain before you attempt this content.

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

Notes

Tank Gear

The gear here is the same as the Optimised Dungeon Tank Build.

Choose any 2 of the 4 sets they are all pretty similar levels of group buffing – if you have a Healer then don’t use Olorime.

For the monster set its a simple Encratis’s Behemoth for Magicka or Tremorscale for Stamina as these both buff DPS.

If you are new to BRP then you could use Leeching Plate but make sure to use at least 1 group buff set with this, any of the previous mentioned sets or Worm Cult but ideally Yolnahkriin.

Class

The Dragonknight is easily the most well equipped for this due to the skill Deep Breath and Unrelenting Grip being a Magicka chain.

All classes can do vBRP but it will just be slightly harder on certain classes and difficult to sustain.

Race

Pretty much any race is playable here. The common races are Nord for Resistances and Argonian or Imperial for sustaining.

Mundus

The best Mundus Stone to use here is: The Atronach for the extra Magicka Recovery.

Attributes

Using 64 Health combined with the Triune and Tri-Stat gives you huge amounts of all 3 stats.

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.
