When to use:
This is mostly used when doing 4-man content without a healer: Dungeon Tank Builds and sometime in certain Trial situations.

Cloudrest Trial (Non Perfected). Veteran Cloudrest Trial (Perfected).
Set Weight: Light Armor.
Which pieces to obtain:
Weapons and Jewellery.
When doing 4-Man content this set provides a buff to help increase your groups damage. You would usually use this if you don’t have a Healer or the Healer is using something different and you try to position it so that it is on top of the DDs if they are inexperienced or you place it somewhere accessible for DDs who know to pick it up.
This is a Light Armor set so you would use Jewellery and Weapons to achieve a 5 piece. You do not want to run this set on 2 bars as its a waste. You would only use this on the back bar with your Staff/Bow as you can only place this buff on the ground by casting a ground AoE ability such as Endless Hail, Elemental Blockade or even Blood Altar. You could combine this set with Powerful Assault or Yolnahkriin and then you could use any front bar 1H & Shield combination such Masters weapons.
There are some Trial situations where you play at range and this set can be a useful way to provide a group buff even when Tanking at range. Thing such as the Off Tank on the 1st boss in vHoF or in vSS on Yolnahkriin, this set can be a good option.
