Elder Scrolls Online: Harrowstorm Gear Sets Guide

With the release of the Harrowstorm DLC, Elder Scrolls Online players can now collect a whole bunch of new gear from two brand new dungeons. These gear sets come with their own stats, abilities, and perks, allowing you to customize your loadout perfectly for your playstyle. Additionally, the dungeons where you find the gear sets are easier to complete than other dungeons like the ones from Wrathstone, allowing you to have them for tougher missions later on.

Getting the Gear

The new gear sets are obtained by farming the Icereach and Unhallowed Grave dungeons; Icereach is in northern Wrothgar, and Unhallowed Grave is in the Hollow Wastes of Bangkoral. It’s not as gruelling as it sounds – any boss from these dungeons has a chance to drop multiple items from the same set, making collecting them much easier. You can also trade pieces with other players to collect the sets faster.

We recommend being at least Level 50 and CP160 before attempting to farm the dungeons.

The Sets

5 When you heal yourself or an ally with an ability, you begin to emit a Warming Aura for 10 seconds. While inside this aura, you and any allies within range restore 1020 Health every second. The Aura also reduces the cost of Sprint, Block, and Roll Dodge by 5%. You can trigger this effect once every 12 seconds.

This set is best for healers, allowing them to recover their magical abilities faster and adding the Health Recovery benefit of Warming Aura when wearing the whole set.

This set is ideal for players that like occupying the role of a tank; it boosts your Healing Taken to make your allies’ assistance more effective. The set’s 5-piece perk also improves the chance of survivability against enemies that you’ve taunted.

2 When you deal damage to an enemy with a Light Attack, it places a Bone Stack on your enemy for 5 seconds. You can apply 1 stack every second. When an enemy has 5 stacks, a skeletal hand will attack them after 1 second. The attack cannot be dodged, and it will knock an enemy into the air and stun them for 3 seconds. If the enemy cannot be stunned, the attack deals 14500 Magic Damage instead. An enemy that has reached 5 stacks can’t gain any more for 3 seconds.
