ESO Cloudrest Off Tank Build

Cloudrest Information

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Cloudrest Off 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 an Off Tank who is responsible for holding the Mini bosses, dealing with their mechanics, buffing and debuffing and chaining in adds that appear from the portal. In progression groups you may need to go into the portal if one of the Main Tanks make a mistake.

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

  • This trial will vary depending on your group so it’s very difficult to provide one setup that works for vCR since there are about 6 you could use.
  • Saxhleel is not really needed here since you have 5 supports generally with 3 Tanks and 2 Healers.
  • To proc Turning Tide you walk in front of the boss if you have no Mini Bosses.
  • Main Tank using PA is generally more useful since you can then have PA & Yolnahkriin in the portal and the main room where as other sets will be a waste in the portal.
  • Alternative sets that can be used: Crimson Oath, Martial Knowledge, Alkosh.

  • This is not a high damage environment and can be easily Tanked in Medium armor, even as a DD/Tank Hybrid setup if needed. All you need to do is roll dodge the heavy attacks from the mini bosses.
  • This setup is used with the assumption that the Main Tank is not using Powerful Assault.
  • Elemental Catalyst will work with a Necromancer, Sorcerer and Warden Tank but will perform poorly as a Dragonknight, Nightblade or Templar due to the lack of availability of Shock DoTs.
