Notes

Class

Dragonknight are typically the best class here purely because of their chain skill and the fact it costs Magicka meaning its very easy to chain and sustain. Any class can Main Tank this trial the DK is just very superior from a sustain point of view.

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.

As standard we use the Bewitched Sugar Skulls which gives us Max Health, Magicka and Stamina plus more Health Recovery.
