ESO Cloudrest Trial
Welcome to The Tank Club: ESO Cloudrest Trial Guide for Tanks.
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.
This trial will often have two Main Tanks who alternate doing the portal. Both Main Tanks will also take it in turns Tanking Z’Maja, and there is usually just one of these Tanks who deals with the execute phase of the fight. Sometimes however, the two Main Tanks might switch Z’Maja in execute but this is something you shouldn’t need to do.
This guide will focus on the Tank role and the mechanics and strategies for successfully completing this trial.
