ESO Cloudrest Main Tank Build

Cloudrest Information

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Cloudrest Main Tank Build.

Cloudrest is a DLC 12-person trial located in Summerset. It was the seventh trial that was introduced into The Elder Scrolls Online with the Summerset Chapter in May 2018. This was the second mini trial created where there are not really any adds between bosses, it’s just a trial with 4 bosses and the Hardmode is a combination of all the bosses together.

The builds listed here are designed for standard vCR but also the +1, +2 and +3 Hardmodes. These builds are most suited to Magicka group compositions, this is because almost every group uses Magicka exclusively in this trial as it is much easier when doing so.

We have included a range of build options here for Beginners, Optimised Groups, Execute and Portal Tanking and the side Gryphons and Mini Bosses.

This trial will often have two Main Tanks who alternate doing the portal. Both Main Tanks will also take it in turns Tanking Z’Maja, and there is usually just one of these Tanks who deals with the execute phase of the fight. Sometimes however, the two Main Tanks might switch Z’Maja in execute but this is something you shouldn’t need to do.

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

  • The Off Tank should be using sets to compensate the Main Tank – Powerful Assault or Elemental Catalyst with Turning Tide and Encratis’s Behemoth.
  • Use Troll King if you are stacking health recovery. Otherwise use Engine Guardian as it’s the best Tank healing monster set in the game.
  • Use Powerful Assault if your group stack well on the bosses tail. Use Worm if you/your group need resources. Use Saxhleel Champion if you are barrier rotating for an easy clear.
  • When using PA or Sax, just back bar it so you can use Puncturing Remedy for an easier execute phase.
  • Divines/Infused is good here because you almost never need to block and the extra speed/health recovery is great when combined with The Steed as health recovery is strong for the execute and portal phases.
  • Harmony Jewellery is helpful for execute to boost the Overflowing Altar synergy heal but not essential, use Infused for better sustain if you heal up easily.

  • Use Tava’s here because it’s crafted and you want to run Medium/Well Fitted so it’s easiest to just craft a set for this 1 situation.
  • All gear is Medium/Well Fitted so you can roll dodge EVERY light attack from the Gryphon and when it’s in the air, you want to be kiting the Gryphon away from the group.
