Permafrost Set Info

Type: Heavy Armor Set

Location: Maelstrom Arena, Normal and Veteran

DLC : Orsinium

Style : Reach Winter/Barbaric


The Set is available as a drop in the Maelstrom Arena, located in the Wrothgar zone. To gain access to the Arena you must own the Orsinium DLC.

The Set’s bonuses boost your Maximum Health, Maximum Magicka and Magicka Recovery. With its fifth piece bonus while you have a damage shield on you, your Health Recovery is increased by 1106.

Mainly a selfish Tank Set for classes that can utilize damage shields on a Tank role, like the Dragonknight or Templar. Its 2 to 4 piece bonuses will boost the Health and Magicka sustain for every Tank, which are quite important.

The fifth piece bonus requires the use of a damage shield to proc or the use of a skill that also provides a damage shield.

However the set offers nothing to your group so it makes a poor choice for the role of PVE Tanking.

It could have some use in PVP for Magicka Builds that want some extra protection but again there are better options for that job.
