How to Farm Overland Sets in ESO
You can farm Overland Sets by completing specific activities and defeating specific opponents in the appropriate zone! Every Overland activity in ESO drops specific types of gear, so in order to collect a Set you will have to complete these activities, based on the gear piece you are after. This is where you can farm each piece for Overland Sets in ESO:
- Delve Bosses have a chance to drop a Waist or Feet piece from Sets in the zone.
- Public Dungeon Bosses have a chance to drop a Shoulders, Hand or Weapon piece from Sets in the zone.
- Overland Bosses will always drop a Head, Chest, Legs or Weapon piece from Sets in the zone.
- Dolmen and Other World Events Chests will always drop a Ring or Necklace piece from Sets in the zone. In zones without Dolmens or other World Events, you can get Rings and Necklaces from Treasure Chest and Psijic Portals!
- Treasure Chests & Psijic Portals have a chance to drop any piece from Sets in the zone. These are valuable since chests are the only way to get Jewelry for some Overland Sets.
