ESO Halls of Fabrications Main Tank Build

Updated: Blackwood (June 2021)

Halls of Fabrications Information

Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Halls of Fabrication Main Tank Build.

Halls of Fabrications is a DLC 12-person trial located in Vvardenfell. It was the fifth trial that was introduced into The Elder Scrolls Online with the Morrowind Chapter in June 2017.

This trial has the most main bosses of any trial with 5 different bosses and many add pulls in between.

You will see a lot of new and interesting mechanics in this trial and it is a very Tank heavy trial. It can be initially quite difficult for beginner groups due to the length of the trial and the varying mechanics on every boss.

This Main Tank builds are tried and tested for Veteran and Hardmode Halls of Fabrications.

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

  • You are responsible for the adds here so you frequently move away from the boss and group.
  • Because of this you need range based support sets. Drake’s is great here to burn the boss faster by having more Ultimates each beam phase.

  • Due to the nature of this fight you drop Elemental Catalyst for Powerful Assault.
  • You have to move too much and switch bosses, you also separate into 2 groups so it makes sense to have PA on each group by having both Tanks using it.

Halls of Fabrications Notes

Main Tank Gear

The bosses in this trial vary so much that to optimise each fight both Tanks require quite a few different skill and gear switches to reach maximum efficiency.

Class

This is a very old trial that was created for players of around 300CP on the old Champion Point system. It’s a mechanical trial with low damage so it’s possible to Tank it comfortably with all classes.

Race

Race won’t make a huge difference in this trial, Imperial or Nord would be the best options for the Ultimate benefits.

Mundus

The best Mundus Stone to use here is The Atronach for the extra Magicka Recovery. This is especially important for the first boss when you need to Purge a lot.

Attributes

Use whatever you need to survive and sustain. 64 Heath works great alongside full Tri-Stat & Triune gear.

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, there are no special requirements.
