Armor Skills ESO

Armor Skills

Armor Skills in ESO are active and passive skills that affect your character, based on the type of Armor they are wearing. Some skills will activate with one only piece of Armor while other skills require you to wear up to five pieces before you can activate them.

Armor and related skills affect your character’s performance and the roles you can fulfill. These skills, along with Class Skills, Weapon Skills and Armor Sets, can help you create powerful Builds for PVE or PVP content in ESO!

It is often wise to wear at least one piece from every Armor skill-line in order to unlock as many skills as possible for your characters. Wearing one piece of Armor from every line also grants you the useful Undaunted passives. The available Armor Skills categories are:
