1. Kjalnar’s Nightmare
Kjalnar’s Nightmare is one of the best Monster Sets for DPS in ESO and of course your number one option for Magic DPS Builds! It boosts damage and deals Magic damage reliably when you Light Attack your enemies. The Set requires good Light Attack Weaving to use it effectively, so this might be a problem for newer players.
The Head drops in Veteran Unhallowed Grave Dungeon and you can get the Shoulders piece from Urgarlag Chief-Bane. The Harrowstorm DLC is necessary to complete the set.
Nerien’eth is another good Magic Damage based Monster Set for almost every PVE content! It summons a Lich Crystal that deals delayed Magic damage when you deal direct damage! Good for New and Veteran players and a relatively easy Set to get.
The Head drops in Veteran Crypt of Hearts 2 Dungeon and you can get the Shoulders piece from Glirion the Redbeard.
Shadowrend is a more defensive Set that can assist with Magic Damage. When you take damage the Set summons a Shadowy Clannfear that deals Magic damage but also debuffs enemies. Decent option for easier Solo PVE.
The Head drops in Veteran Banished Cells 1 Dungeon and you can get the Shoulders piece from Maj Al-Ragath.
