ESO Build: The Tank Mage with Heavy Armor and a Shield

ShareThis Google + LinkedIn Reddit

There are lots of skills in The Elder Scrolls Online. But many of those skills have similar or conflicting attributes. How to make your character more powerful or purposeful? The key is whether skills can supplement each other. Then you have your own strategies and know about opponents’.

As you know from the title, this is about fighting Tank build.

What is Tank? It can get hatred, resist hit and add chances to survival, which is good for classes in a wild war. A Tank class can gain hatred so that you can stick enemies to avoid them attacking other weak teammates and stopping them escaping. It is Black Mage that can do all. Mage is often weak in general online games. But you will experience different Mage in ESO. As a Mage, you are on heavy armor first and hold a shield to improve your defense. Meanwhile, you can cast various control spells to attack enemies.

There are two sets of weapons skills, Target Control and Survival.

The combination of Lightning Form and Immovable is capable of greatly enhancing defense and causing damage over time.

The skill is not used by me. If it likes lightning shield, battle mage with buff is terrible character whether it attacks or not. What’s worse, it can not fix, nor flee. But Battle mage can greatly attract hatred. When it is not attacked, Battle mage can also use a wand, to rush forward, interrupt targets' skills and suppress the opposite mage and healer. The capability of Mage is not able to reflect in large-scale battles but in small-scale battles as Tank.

In addition, Mage with heavy armor and a shield play a good Tank in PVP .

It is early time to gain Lightning Form to complement the shortage of defense. The attack focus is great.

Mage with a wand can adventure in dungeons too. The destruction skills secures to output heavy damage,

Finally, there may be some unreasonable and inappropriate assumption, for I experience the game beta for a short time and get builds through thinking about news. And I sincerely invite the experienced players to help me improve my character build.
