Notes

Main Tank Gear

If you are an experienced group and an experienced Tank who can maintain Alkosh with 80%+ uptime then you could use Alkosh in this Trial if it is needed. This would only be needed if you have more than 2 Damage Dealers who are not Nightblades and Necromancers, or you have Stamina Damage Dealers in the group.

In a Magicka group, you could use Torug’s rather than Alkosh as Torug’s is somewhat more consistent. It only requires an Infused/Crusher Staff with Blockade placed for almost a 1k pen boost and the uptime is completely the responsibility of the Tank who should keep Blockade placed at all times. Torug’s compared to Alkosh which needs a supply of synergies from the group which sometimes may not be available.

 Adds Gear

For adds you run a full debuff setup with Dragon’s Defilement and Alkosh along with an AoE Major Breach skill putting your group at max pen very quickly and efficiently. Lady Thorn is a 360 degree AoE Major Maim which will lower the damage that the adds do to you and your group.

Boss 1 & 2 Gear

Monster Set used would be Tremorscale for a group with Stamina Damage Dealers or 1 Shadowrend and 1 Chokethorn to give you more Magicka Recovery so you can Purge a lot on Boss 1.

You would use Yolnahkriin as your main set and pair it with Alkosh or Torugs for the pen. If you are in a group with no Necro Support then you could use Galenwe here as your group stays close enough for this fight to gain the Empower buff.

There are a lot of Blocking phases involved in this trial so Infused/big and Sturdy/small pieces are good to have. Using Prismatic enchants on all slots is good for resource balance as you have a very varied trial where you’ll need Magicka for Purging and supporting your group, blocking, bashing and maintaining buffs.

Triune Jewellery offers more balanced resources again, and 1 Bracing/2 Magicka Recovery assists with sustain.

Boss 3 Gear

Typically you’ll take the adds but won’t always be close enough to the main boss to debuff it fully at all times.

For this reason you use 2 aura sets, so Yolnhakriin because you’ll always be taunting adds and when there are no adds you can taunt the main boss. This is paired with Worm for Magicka groups or Hircine’s for Stamina groups.

The best Monster Set would be Bloodspawn for generating Ultimate faster but you could use Tremorscale for Stamina DDs also.

Boss 4 Gear

For most groups you will pull out the bosses on this fight and be split into 2 groups.

For this reason we can use Powerful Assault on both tanks so they can provide that buff to both groups of DDs. If it’s a Stamina group then you may need to use Alkosh still unless a DD is using it.

Lady Thorn is a good set to use for when the bosses are pulled together in the middle as the damage coming from them is quite high and this will debuff everything in the nearby area.

Last Boss Gear

There are 2 ways this fight is done, either with the group stacked on the bosses foot or stacked up on the wall.

If the group is in front of the boss, you will need to use Alkosh or Torugs for sure as Nightblades cannot flank from this position. If the group is up on the wall then Galenwe is an effective set to use for this situation, or Torugs if your group is still missing some pen.

If your group stands on the foot then Lord Warden is a good Monster Set to use as it will cover all the DDs and help them survive when they take damage. If you have Stamina DDs then Tremorscale is also an option.

For this fight it can be a good idea to use Infused/Potion Cooldown because sometimes it will be hard to use synergies as they will float under the floor or above your head so managing resources can become difficult, especially after the “Punch” mechanic.

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, there is a lot of Magicka casting for the Tanks in this trial so this is important to help with sustain.

Attributes

We go with 64 Health since we are using full Pristmatic enchants. As an Argonian you may need some points into Stamina to make sure your Max Stamina is higher than your Max Magicka

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.
