ESO Dungeon Tank Build

Updated: Blackwood (May 2021)

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Dungeon Tank Build.

These builds have been designed for optimal group support within 4-person content, most specifically in Veteran and Hardmode Dungeons. If you are looking for a more Beginner friendly Dungeon build then check out the Beginner Tank Builds page or check out our YouTube page.

When it comes to an optimised build for 4-person content there are a few different options to consider depending on your group such as what classes the other people are and if you are with 3 Damage Dealers or 2 Damage Dealers and 1 Healer.

When setting up an optimised Dungeon build for Tanking you basically have multiple gear set options where all of them are similar in how they perform. Just pick whichever sets you want that also doesn’t conflict with other people in your group.

  1. Claw of Yolnhakriin
  2. Drake’s Rush
  3. Vestment of Olorime (If you have a Healer you shouldn’t need this)
  4. Powerful Assault (Remember to slot an Assault ability)

You then have a choice of Monster Set depending on your group situation.

  1. Encratis’s Behemoth (Magicka Group)
  2. Tremorscale (Stamina/Mixed Group)
  3. Symphony of Blades (No Healer/Group Sustain)

Finally all of the 4 main sets are able to be used on just 1 bar so you have the option of using a weapon set.

  1. Puncturing Remedy (Master’s 1 Hand and Shield)
  2. Void Bash (Vateshran 1 Hand and Shield)
