ESO – Sanctum Ophidia – The Serpent

Off-Tank PoV

The Serpent fight.


ESO – Hel Ra Citadel

Tank PoV

First run for me as a tank (first period). Besides forgetting before the raid started to put Pierce Armor back on after running Maw of Lorkhaj, it went pretty smooth. Thanks again for the members of Conviction (ESO Guild – PS4/NA) for running this last night, especially Jennylynnrn for putting this together. This is the “last” trial I needed completion wise – now on to hard mode!

ESO – Aetherian Archive – 14:07 Run

The weekly trial this week on PS4 / NA is Aetherian Archive. Yesterday I posted a video of a run that for many of us was a first time. Yesterday we ran for a second time so that a couple of people who missed it the day before could get a score for the weekly lead boards. This run was much better! In fact, the 14:07 time is currently the best time for Conviction (ESO Guild PS4 / NA)!

Thanks to everyone who was able to come out for the trial, and excellent job!

ESO – Aetherian Archive – Normal

Speed run on normal – first actual run for several of us (myself included). One glaring mistake (by me) on the Wispmother (3rd Boss) and one disconnect. Both hurt our final score, but overall a great run, especially for us first timers.

Thanks again to all the members of Conviction (ESO Guild PS4 / NA) for the run!

Stay tuned tonight at 8pm EST for another run (promise to get the Wispmother right this time!)

Note: Video edited for time during disconnect


ESO – Lord Warden (Hard Mode) – vICP

Thanks to all who ran vICP last night for the Gold Pledge run:

J4LYFE (Healer) and KujoAlpha1 (DPS) who unfortunately had to leave early.

ODBUnlimited (DPS) who was there from the beginning, MightyHus007 (DPS) and Vaultamour (Healer) who came in to help finish the dungeon off.

This video is from the Tank PoV (jzhnutz). The idea, from the tanking perspective, is to keep the aggro of Lord Warden on the tank at all times – especially in hard mode where there are a lot of other factors that can hurt the other players in the group. With this particular fight, jzhnutz decided to tank mainly from his back bar. The tank is wearing 5 piece Tava’s favor, 5 piece Footman and 2 piece Blood Spawn. The idea behind this build is to gain as much ultimate as possible quickly for two reasons – a) for resource managment and b) for Warhorn. The tank uses a ranged taunt instead of pierce armor because Lord Warden teleports himself frequently. For this fight Aggressive Warhorn is chosen as the ultimate for two reasons – a) high ultimate cost = more resource return and b) for the Major Force passive, granting 30%increase in critical strike damage for allies.

The build itself is based off of Deltias Gaming’s Talon Tank with some slighr modifications.
