On a really sweet note, going to be teaming up with friend l-LeGiT_PsYcHo-l to post more videos and builds. Legit runs a sweet tank among other things, and is upping his stream game once again – check him out on Twitch, YouTube and on Facebook!

Eternum (ESO Guild PS4-NA) has begun to step up its game with progression raid (trials) runs. Our goal is to first get used to playing with one another, second to get mechanics down, and third to begin getting stage/boss completion. The team has awesome leadership and members, and once we get our team completely organized with one another, Legit and I will both start streaming our runs.

If you are in need of a wonderful end game PvE guild with a little PvP thrown in, check out Eternum on Facebook. The guild has excellent leadership staff who are very knowledgeable towards end game ESO goals.


The Dragonknight Tank build has been updated – will post some videos once I have the time to make them. Currently working on updating the Stamina Templar build for both personal PvE as well as trial orientation. In the same vein, I am also working on stamina builds for Dragonknight and Nightblade, both focused on end game PvE and trials. Shout out to my fellow stamina gurus in Eternum for all of their help so far!

Stamina Templar

Additional for tanking, Legit_Psycho will also be posting a build soon – I will post my build and his together and we will discuss the difference – both advantages and disadvantages to both.

On the magika side of things – Templar and Dragonknight DPS builds are planned, but are still in need of a lot of work. I still have no love for healing – not really, just don’t have the time or the character space at the moment, but come the next update, I will also have a healer build.


My current schedule is pretty straight forward… trials, then trials and trials again! During the week its mostly farming runs in Maw of Lorkhaj and Sanctum Ophidia. Thursdays and Saturdays are taken up with progression runs, and Fridays are PvP nights. I will post a tentative streaming schedule soon once I get permission for the others involved. In the meantime, I will be posting video clips on YouTube to show some highlights.




Update & News – 6/22/16

With the release of Dark Brotherhood on ESO now for all platforms, it is time for what has become a quarterly update. Coming soon are two updates to builds, one for tanking – specifically tanking as a Dragonknight and one for Stamina Templar DPS.

Some New Pages:

Best in Slot Gear for Trials
– This covers all builds (except Stam sorc…) and has been compiled by some great minds with a lot of research on PS4 and PC. Though the list and page will continue to evolve and be updated, this is essentially what people will expect you to have if you are running vMoL or vSanctum

Sorcerer Tank
– Two videos by my friend StarFireLeo on tanking with a sorcerer. I will be going through the videos and picking out the information for an actual write up soon, but until then, the videos are worth watching if you want to tank with a sorc!

Playing ESO News

– I have joined two wonderful end game focused PvE guilds, which are connected together by members. Both University and Eternum (PS4-NA) are excellent guilds with many knowledgeable members who are in the top tier players on PS4-NA.  Both links go to their Facebook pages.

– I have gotten to where i want to be with my tanking and stamina DPS, now its on to magika dps and healing. Healing will take a back seat at the moment. First up I will be getting my magika Dragonknight vMoL ready, then getting my magika Nightblade there as well. Once that is done I will be focusing on my healer. If I get any free time, I will be leveling up  a new stamina DK (khajite this time) as well as a magika Templar for DPS.

Coming Soon
– Totally revamped page dedicated to tanking. My plan is obviously to have a Dragonknight focus, but also I want to have space for sorcs, templars and even nightblades (some of the most cool and pain in the ass tanking ever).
– New leveling guide – with the new training trait, leveling has become a breeze. In reality, the gist of leveling is put on all training and run to a good grind spot with a few friends, but I want to go into a little more depth to make sure you get on the right track with leveling what you need, for each class.
– More videos – The JZH Gaming Youtube has been quiet of late. Some of that is I have been real busy, some of that has been not having too much to stream. I promise there will be more streaming coming soon!

ESO – Best in Slot (Trials)

Note: I will be updating all the builds I have that are done by me very soon

With vMoL now getting completions across all platforms, the scaling of Sanctum to our current level – with both veteran and normal modes, as well as a new DLC drop in Dark Brotherhood, we now have a new meta/BiS gear list for trials and serious group PvE content.

Please note, if you are playing solo, other sets maybe more viable for you – this applies to group dungeons as well where you don’t know what gear the tanks, dps and healers have on. However, for trials, everyone should be wearing the gear listed below to provide optimal damage output.

Magika –

Currently still the bread and butter for trials, especially vMoL and vSanctum. It does not mean a stamina based DPS cannot be effective, but with the “ease of use” on magika builds, on top of the shear damage output, magika DPS is still currently the preferred go to for trials.

Templar DPS > Twice Born Star, Willpower Jewelry, Skoria DW/Destro
Nightblade DPS > TBS/Aether (ONE person), Kena/Nerienth, Willpower jewelry, Destro/DW
Dragon Knight DPS >TBS, Skoria, Willpower Jewelry Double Destro
Sorcerer DPS > TBS Kena Willpower Destro/DW (Scathing is good on a sorc ONLY in maelstrom and for solo play.)

Utility – Tanks and Healers

Tanking is my favorite role, and since the release of the Thieves Guild DLC, it has taken a MAJOR turn for the better. With Dark Brotherhood it has changed slightly, but more so with resource management over gear usage. Healing hasn’t changed all that much, but you will need to grind for all of the gear

DK Tank > Tava’s w/Footmen or Alkosh OR Tava’s with Ebon w/Bloodspawn set
Templar Healers > SPC w/ Aether/Twilight Remedy/Worm Resto/Destro

Stamina –

Lastly, we come to stamina DPS. The most complicated damage dealing to play rotation wise. Some would say an average magika user is not a problem, however if you are only an average stamina user you will not succeed. That being said, with practice and gear, you can become one of the hardest hitting players in a dungeon or trial.

Dragonknight #1 > 5 TBS, 5 Morag Tong, Maelstrom Axe & Dagger with Master Bow
Dragonknight #2 or Templar > Night Mothers and Twice Born are all comparable. (Twice born will benefit MOST from Warhorn) (Also: Mephalas) w/ Maelstrom Axe & Dagger with Master Bow, Agility Jewelry.

Some Notes:

Tanks –

On my Dragonknight tank, i currently run Tava’s Favor with Ebon, both 5 pieces, with Blod Spawn Helmet. The reasoning is I gain huge amounts of ultimate, and ultimate equals both Warhorn and resource regeneration/management. Footman’s can give you more mitigation, even at at CP140, however, running all armor with reinforced and made legendary, your resistances should be at or close to cap with buffs. Alkosh is another great utility set for tanks. An optimal setup where there are two tanks is for both to be wearing Tava’s, one wear Alkosh and one wear Ebon.

Stamina DPS –

On my stamplar, I currently run 5 piece TBS and 4 piece Night Mothers Gaze, with Agility Jewelry (with weapon damage enchantments). As long as my rotation is good in group play, I have no issues, and I see a huge boost from Warhorn.

Twice Born Star –

I see a lot of people fight this, but honestly in a trial situation, or even a dungeon where a tank is running Tava’s and Bloodspawn (and throwing Warhorn), the damage output is nuts. Short of maybe vMaelstrom, even running solo, this set works fantastic. Couple this with both the Thief and Shadow mundus stones, its awesome.

Morag Tong –

A set made for stamina Dragonknights before poison was the thing, and now that it is, as well as scaled to CP160, it works extremely well for them. The 5 piece bonus fives stamina and weapon damage, plus a buff to poison damage. Couple this with TBS and you have the potential to rock.

Traits and Enchantments –

Though it should be obvious, you want Divines on gear unless you are a tank (and maybe healer – my expertise for healers is simply I know they heal 🙂 ). For tanking, reinforced or sturdy – personally I prefer reinforced for the mitigation. For enchantments, depending on whether you are a magika or stamina DPS, go with one or the other. Same goes for weapon/spell damage on jewelry. Traits on weapons for DPS should be sharpened or precise.

Final Thoughts –

The truth is this list will evolve, with both the current content and as we get future content with changes from Zenimax. We all know that once a meta exists, ZOS always intends to shake it up and have it change. I will be making this post into a separate page – found here – that i will update as things change. I want to note that this list is not something I created, but is from an effort from groups of both PC and console players that have tested extensively and to their own in game financial detriment.  Though this is not my list, I stand behind it because I have seen from observation, and by playing with people that use these sets, and I know it works. I would like to thank the guild leaders on Eternum and University (PS4-NA) for compiling this list, and for all those involved in testing.

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!
