The Elder Scrolls Online and Obtaining Item Sets in Tamriel
In the Elder Scrolls Online players can obtain specialized item sets that will grant certain bonuses depending on the number of set items collected – complete sets offer the greatest bonuses.
These item sets can be far better than their counterparts in normal equipment and the bonuses for multiple items increase significantly.
The ESO realm has many different sets available as well. There are crafted sets, some that will only be dropped by mobs as well as sets to be bought with Alliance Points and Tel Var Stones, or found in the Imperial City. Then other sets must be obtained as a reward for participating in a PVP matches as trails or dungeons.
All You Need to Know About Crafted Sets
Players can craft these sets at certain crafting stations. In order to accomplish this task, the player must possess specific traits pertaining to the item slot in question. Any of the traits will be fine, what matters is that the right number of traits have been researched by a crafter.
For example, if you wanted to craft a helmet of heavy armor from the set “Hunding’s Rage”, the player will need to research 6 traits for heavy armor helmets. How many traits a specific crafted set will require on the item itself. You can refer to our previous article which explain all of current crafted sets in Elder Scroll Online.
Researching a whole slew of traits on each of the slots can be a time consuming task, therefore the items that require 6 trait points or more can be expected to be far more valuable and offer considerably superior bonuses.
Of course, some very popular and powerful sets only require three skill points to craft, an example of this is the Seducers Set.
To craft such a set, you will need to head out into the wild Tamriel countryside and locate each of the correct crafting station for the item set you are attempting to craft. The crafted sets can all be found scattered across the Alliances situated in similar level areas. More stations can be found in Craglorn, Coldharbour, Orsinium and Imperial City.
The values that can be expected will be determined by the level of the crafted sets. Higher stats can be expected from higher levels.
