Thunderbug’s Carapace Set Info

Type: Heavy Armor Set

Location: Malabal Tor


Style : Primal


The Set is available as an Overland Drop in the Malabal Tor zone.

The Set’s bonuses boost your Armor and Spell Damage. With its fifth piece bonus when you take Physical Damage, you deal Shock Damage around you. This effect scales off the higher of your Weapon or Spell Damage.

A decent mix of a Selfish and support Tank Set that boosts your Armor, Weapon and Spell Damage, as well as attacking enemies around you.

This set can be a decent starter option for PVE tanking but also work in PVP Builds as well.

When you become more familiar with tanking in ESO you should replace it with a better Tank Set option like the Ebon Armory Set.

Same for PVP purposes. Although it can boost your defense and Damage you will want to use something better eventually that will let you focus on offense or defense and be successful.
