  • powerful sets and good champion allocations.
  • More will be added soon.

Class Highlight: Dragonknight
Dragonknight Class Passives(sorted based on usefulness for werewolf form starting at the top in descending order, not every Passive will have a description.):
  • Battle Roar (2/2): “In the Middle of Combat, at any time should your resources be at half or so, you may find that Transforming into a Werewolf through the werewolf transformation ultimate (300 ultimate.)will give you a huge chunk of Magicka, Stamina and Health back. For each point of Ultimate Spent, you restore 46 Health, Magicka And Stamina.”
  • Combustion(2/2): The 50% Increase to the Poisoned & Burning Debuffs is stupendous, but the added resource recovery when applying said debuff can carry over to werewolf form should one be using a weapon with a poison or flame Enchantment on it.
  • Elder Dragon(2/2): In addition to the 5% Health Recovery for each Draconic Ability slotted(does not work in Werewolf Form), It will increase the Range of all Instant Cast Melee Abilities, which may also uniquely apply to Infectious Claws and its morphs.
  • Scaled Armor(2/2): Increases Spell Resistance by 3300, equivalent to mitigating 10% of incoming Spell Damage.
  • Iron Skin(2/2): the 10% Added Damage mitigation while blocking is useful regardless of form, but if utilised correctly, it can help one survive even the most daunting attacks.
  • World in Ruin (2/2): It may not be beneficial in werewolf form, But The 25% Cost Reduction to all Poison Based Abilities makes it useful across the board before transformation.
  • Warmth (2/2)
  • Searing Heat (2/2)
  • Burning Heart (2/2)
  • Eternal Mountain (2/2)
  • Mountains Blessing (2/2)
  • Helping Hands (2/2)

Races:
  1. Orc:
    Notable Passives:
    • Brawny: grants 2000 Max Stamina.
    • Unflinching Rage: Grants 1000 Max Health and heals you for up to 600 when you deal damage with a weapon, this can only occur once every 4 seconds.
    • Swift Warrior: 258 Weapon Damage, 12% Sprint cost reduction & 10% Increased Sprint Speed.
  2. Redguard:
    Notable Passives:
    • Wayfarer: Increased duration of any eaten food by 15 minutes.
    • Martial Training: Reduces the cost of your Weapon abilities by 8% & reduces the effectiveness of Snares applied to you by up to 15%.
    • Conditioning: Increases your Max Stamina by 2000.
    • Adrenaline Rush: When you deal Direct Damage, you restore 950 Stamina. This effect can occur once every 5 seconds.
  3. Imperial:
    Notable Passives:
    • Tough: Increases your Max Health by 2000.
    • Imperial Mettle: Increases your Max Stamina by 2000.
    • Red Diamond: When you deal Direct Damage you restore 333 Health, Magicka, and Stamina. This effect has a 5 second cooldown. Reduces the cost of your Abilities by 3%.

Mundus Stone:

Warrior: Notably, The Lover mundus without divine buffs can essentially be replicated with a legendary Sharpened Weapon as both have 2752 penetration, but interestingly, on a Two-Handed Nirnhoned Weapon, I found that The Warrior Stone beats the Nirnhoned Trait by 3 points of Weapon Damage without divine buffs.

Two-handed weapon damage(legendary): 1571
Two-handed weapon damage(legendary, Nirnhoned): 1806

1571 + 15% Nirnhoned = 235 points on two-handed Weapon.
The warrior grants 238 Weapon Damage without any divine traits.

Also, use these abilities as you see fit to your particular play style because, if it works for you, then use it.

Werewolf Abilities
X: Feral pounce
Y: Hircines Rage
B: Claws of Life
LB: Deafening Roar
RB: Howl of Despair
LB-RB: Pack Leader

Werewolf Tips:
  • When using Deafening Roar in 4-12 Player Groups, it is best used when another player in the group uses an ability that immobilises mobs, such as Dark Talons, Gripping Shards, Encase, Etc. Ensuring they cannot escape the group when affected by the fear from Deafening Roar.
  • If your group members tend to use a lot of light attacks, consider using howl of despair for massive damage and granting your allies infinite use of empower for 5 seconds.
  • Feral Pounce is good for initiating combat or tackling long distance foes in unison with the blood rage Passive for even more time. However, it is only necessary when more than 10 meters away & is more useful when facing ranged targets as Feral pounce is the ideal Gap Closer.
  • Claws of Life can be used anywhere, but it is best utilised against more than one mob(Except in the case of bosses and lavish foes) as the DoT done will restore health equivalent to 50% of the Damage done, keeping you in the fight as a dead DPS is essentially not good for trial-doers.

  • Combat Medic (2/2)
  • Battle resurrection (2/2): if you have the window of opportunity, do your best to look out for your strongest teammates, strength in numbers as they say.

Monster Sets:
You will have full autonomy for which monster set you may wish to use, But I have compiled a list of sets for specific roles to play as well as giving you a slight insight to each of the Monster Sets listed. But remember, if it works well for “your” play style, then do it, as if your play style has a truly meaningful contribution to others, you will know your doing it right in your own way.
  1. Lord Warden (Solo & Group Survivability):
    ”An Extraordinary Monster set that excels quite well at survival,, with the 1st piece granting 2975 Physical/Spell resistance and the 2nd piece Grants a 50% chance upon taking damage, to summon a shadow orb for 10 seconds that increases the Physical & Spell resistance of the wearer and their allies within 8 meters by 3870, occurring once every 10 seconds. Combined with other buffs from another players abilities can make you and your team all the more harder to defeat.”
  2. Mighty Chudan (Enhanced Solo Survivability & Exceptional Hybridability with Lycanthropy):
    “A good Monster set whose helm can be acquired in the ruins of Mazzatun (shadows of the hist required.) which provides up to 2975 Physical & Spell resistance, and wearing both pieces Grants Major Ward/Resolve at all times, Increasing your Physical/Spell resistance by 5280 while also providing a health bonus. Essentially good for solo PvE’ers as this and the 1st piece bonus will stack with the added resistances of Savage Strength for Transformed Werewolf Players, allowing werewolves in Medium Armor to hit the Hard Cap of 33K resistances(with CP.) while also having that extra bit of health to survive more Devastating attacks. the only downside is that other sources of major Ward/Resolve such as the wardens frost cloak will not add any additional benefit and is otherwise not stackable with Mighty Chudan”
  3. Pirate Skeleton (Solo Survivability):
    ”Mostly useful in solo scenarios, The Pirate Skeleton set Adds 2975 Physical/Spell resistance on the 1st piece, but when both pieces are acquired and worn, taking damage to health (if the wearer survives) will turn you into a skeleton outside of werewolf form(cosmetically) and grants Major Protection and Minor Defile, Reducing your Damage Taken by 30% but reduces your health recovery and healing received by 15%, if in a group with someone that can grant you Major Ward/Resolve, you can expect Pirate skeleton to stack well for even more damage reduction.”
  4. Iceheart (Survivability & Small DPS:
    ”Not as Beneficial as other Monster Sets with resists, the added Spell Critical could be considered a small detriment to a werewolves capability, but its 2nd piece, not so much, dealing Critical Damage Grants a 20% chance to gain a damage Shield for 6 seconds that absorbs up to 8600 points of damage, while it holds, enemies within 5 meters take 770 frost Damage every 1 second, occurring once every 6 seconds. I decided to highlight this set because since damage shields benefit from resistances, this may give the Iceheart Monster set an unprecedented edge across many builds, not to mention the Frost Damage done by the set can chill enemies on rare occasions which reduces their damage done by 15% for a few seconds.”
  5. Swarm Mother (Melee Range Utility):
    Swarm Mother doesn’t get as much usage like the other Monster Sets do, but for werewolves, well now it does. Because the 1st piece Grants 129 Stamina recovery and the 2nd piece bonus, once every 1 second, when blocking an attack from an enemy that is further than 5 meters, you spin strands of spider silk to pull the enemy to you, making it easier to deal with enemies that use ranged attacks like mages, archers, etc.”
  6. Sellistrix (AoE DPS with Stun):
    ”When you deal Damage, you have a 10% chance to create an earthquake under the enemy that erupts after 1.5 seconds, dealing 5030+ damage to all enemies within 4 meters and stunning them for 3 seconds, this can occur once every 5.5 seconds (4 seconds if you count the eruption time as an interval.), not as much damage compared to most, but the stun lock makes it a worthy set to be listed.”
  7. Selene (Single Target Burst Damage): The Selene set grants your Direct Damage Melee attacks a 15% chance to summon the Spirit of Foulhide to maul the closest enemy in front of you for 12,000+ Physical damage after 1.3 seconds, on a side note, as it occurs once every 4 seconds, it would actually be 2.7 seconds because of the 1.3s attack window.
  8. Slimecraw (DPS increase): Slimecraw not only adds extra spell/weapon critical on the 1st piece, but it also grants minor berserk at all times, increasing your damage done by 8%, while it may render ability induced variations of minor berserk inert, it is useful in solo instances, another note to add is that the extra critical will be useful, the flaw with this is that other sources of Minor Berserk such as combat prayer will be inert due to slimecraw.
  9. Molag Kena (Overkill DPS): While the first of two piece provides Additional Weapon & Spell Damage, for those who have plenty of resources & recovery, both pieces are recommended for Stronger Abilities in the form of high weapon/spell damage (At the expense of 20% extra ability cost.) good for your main hand as it can increase the overall damage output of your abilities while dual-wielding, but in turn, you may end up weaving a few more heavy attacks in the process. However, if other abilities are used between expiry intervals, one may be able to retain more resources before the sets activation. it is also noteworthy to know this benefits werewolves to the latter of their light attack and its bleed procs.

Main Armour Sets:
Set 1: Bloodmoon (droppable medium set found in the March of Sacrifices.)
"Primarily utilised in werewolf form, this set Grants a stack of blood scent for 8 seconds, gaining 5 stacks will activate the bloodmoon buff for 5 seconds, granting up to 30% Increased Melee Light Attack Damage and 50% Increased Melee Light Attack speed, the bloodmoon effect can only occur once every 18 seconds (13 seconds if one counts the 5 second duration of the buff as an interval.)"

Set 2: Tzogvins Warband(Droppable Medium Armor Set found in the group dungeon of “Frostvault”.)
(2 items) Adds 833 Weapon Critical
(3 items) Adds 833 Weapon Critical
(4 items) Adds 1487 Physical Penetration
(5 items) When you deal critical damage, you gain a stack of Precision, increasing your Weapon Critical by 129 for 10 seconds, up to 10 stacks max. At max stacks, you also gain Minor Force, increasing your Critical Damage done by 10%
While it may not provide any stamina set bonuses like some sets, it does compensate with added armor penetration and, with 10 stacks of Precision, provides minor force while the precision stack holds.

Set 3(optional): Perfect Arms of Relenquen (Droppable Medium Armor set Found in Veteran Cloudrest.)
The Arms of Relenquen makes your light and heavy attacks apply a stack of harmful winds to the target, dealing physical damage every 1 second for 5 seconds and stackable up to 20 times for even more damage, it also provides minor slayer on the 3rd piece which increases your damage done to Dungeon and trial monsters by 5%.
trial beginners can find the standard arms of Relenquen set in the normal variant, but unlike the perfect Arms of Relenquen, the standard one does not have the added maximum stamina on the 5th piece alongside its mainline effect so it may be preferable to get the normal one before going for the perfect version. Dually note that as damage from Armor Sets cannot Crit, it may not bear as many good results.

Set 4(Optional): Toothrow (droppable medium set found in the wayrest sewers.)
Toothrow Grants Major Savagery at all times, Increasing your Weapon Critical rating by 2191, it also Grants 100 points of Weapon Damage on the side which is something the leviathan set cannot do, the Weapon Critical added from toothrow can increase the proc’ability of bloodmoon and can increase overall DPS as a whole.

Main Hand: Tzogvins Maul: Sharpened: Poison Damage Enchantment.

Interesting Note: in comparison to some statistic analytics, the Warrior Mundus Boon has 3 points more Weapon Damage than a Nirnhoned Two-handed Weapon, sitting at 238 Weapon Damage while the Nirnhoned Trait Grants two-handed weapons 235 Weapon Damage at legendary quality. Thus the warrior takes slightly greater precedence than the Lover mundus, namely because the 2752 Physical/spell penetration can be similarly achieved on any two-handed Weapon with the sharpened Trait.

Main Hand Backup: Tzogvins Bow: Sharpened: Poison Weapon Enchantment.

Armor(advisable to have 5 Medium, 1 light and 1 Heavy):
  • (Light/Heavy) Helmet: Monster: Infused: Stamina Enchantment.
  • (Medium) Chest: Bloodmoon: Infused: Health Enchantment.
  • (Light/Heavy) Shoulders: Monster: Divines: Health Enchantment.
  • (Medium) Arms: Bloodmoon: Invigorating: Stamina Enchantment.
  • (Medium) Belt: Bloodmoon: Divines: Stamina Enchantment.
  • (Medium) Legs: Bloodmoon: Infused: Stamina Enchantment.

  • Necklace: Warband: Robust: Weapon Damage.
  • Ring 1: Warband: Robust: Weapon Damage.
  • Ring 2: Warband: Robust: Weapon Damage.

Armor Mathematics(and more)

Scaled Armor: 3300 Spell resist.
363 Spell resist Light Armor Passive
362 Physical & Spell resist Heavy Armor Passive.

Mighty Chudan/Pirate skeleton/lord warden 1 piece: 2975 = 18,199 Spell resist & 14,536 Physical resist.

Mighty Chudan/Pirate skeleton/lord warden 1 piece: 2975 = 18,198s & 14,898. (with 2 heavy)

Mighty Chudan perma Ward/Resolve 5280 = 23,478s and 20,178p (with 2 heavy)

4025 Spell resist = 15,224S

362 Physical resist = 11,561P

11,199 Physical & Spell resistance.

2 heavy = 11,923

19,816p + 3184cp* = 23,000 Physical Resistance.
3184
19816 + 3624 = 23,440 Spell Resistance.

Werewolf Abilities
X: Feral pounce

Werewolf Tips:
  • When using Deafening Roar in 4-12 Player Groups, it is best used when another player in the group uses an ability that immobilizes mobs, such as Dark Talons, Gripping Shards, Encase, Etc. Ensuring they cannot escape the group when affected by the fear and the major fracture from Deafening Roar.
  • If your group members tend to use a lot of light attacks, consider using howl of despair for massive damage and granting your allies infinite use of empower for 5 seconds, buffing the power of their light attacks by 40%.
  • Feral Pounce is good for initiating combat or tackling long distance foes in unison with the blood rage Passive for even more time. However, it is only necessary when more than 10 meters away & is more useful when facing ranged targets as Feral pounce is the ideal Gap Closer.
  • Claws of Life can be used anywhere, but it is best utilised against more than one mob(Except in the case of bosses and lavish foes) as the DoT done will restore health equivalent to 50% of the Damage done, keeping you in the fight as a dead DPS is essentially not good for trial-doers.

Alpha-Lupi’s Notes & Commentary:
Note that for now, it is primarily designed for Dragonknights. But over time, it will be optimised so that Every Class may be able to utilise the builds true prowess. if you feel there are some things worth discussing about the build, leave a comment, keep it on topic & in the time I get, we shall see where it leads. Remember: "You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink."

This does not include honest mistakes; rather, this rule pertains to those who go out of their way to spread harmful or malicious rumors about ZeniMax Online Studios and its employees, or The Elder Scrolls Online.
    • Copyright Infringement: Names and Material: We do not allow copyright-protected names on our forums. Copyright-protected names are typically from well-known original characters in books, games, and movies. We also do not permit discussion about the illegal distribution or use of copyrighted material, such as private game servers or pirated movies, music, and games.
    • Cursing and Profanity: Purposefully circumventing our forum profanity filter or otherwise cursing or using profanity is not permitted on our forums. Our forums have a profanity filter in place for the purpose of keeping profanity off our forums — please help us keep the ESO community constructive and profanity-free by respecting that filter.
    • Demands and Threats: We encourage you to share feedback, suggestion, and requests with us, but we expect all of our community members to refrain from resorting to demands or threats. We believe that demands and threats are not constructive. Threats of real-life violence, in particular, are something we take very seriously and do not tolerate in the ESO community.
    • Deliberately Disobeying a ZeniMax Online Employee: Deliberately disobeying a request or action by a member of the ZeniMax Online Studios/ESO Team is not permitted at any time. As an example, if we close a thread you created and leave an explanation stating why it was closed, you may not re-create the thread.
    • Discussing Disciplinary Actions: If you ever have questions or concerns about a disciplinary action or decision we have made on the ESO forums, or wish to appeal a forum warning or infraction you’ve received, we ask that you please contact https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/ to do so (please specify that you are contacting about a forum-related inquiry or appeal). We are happy to discuss and review specific moderation-related actions with you, but we do not allow discussion of any moderation actions or decisions on our forums. If you have questions or concerns about an in-game disciplinary action, please contact https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/ to ask about a suspension or ban, and any other support-related feedback. We cannot assist with in-game violations on the forums.
    • Flaming: It’s okay to disagree and debate on the official ESO forums, but we do ask that you keep all disagreements civil, constructive, and on-topic. If a discussion gets heated and turns into a debate, remember that you should stick to debating the post and/or thread topic. It is never appropriate to resort to personal comments or jabs about those participating in the thread discussion.
    • Goodbye/Quitting Threads: We understand that sometimes people will leave the ESO community, and want to post a “goodbye” or “quitting” thread. Generally, we have found that “goodbye” and “quitting” threads have a tendency to go downhill fast. It is our policy to read the feedback in “goodbye” and “quitting” threads and close them, regardless of whether they are constructive or not.
    • Hate Speech: We take the use of hate speech very seriously in the official ESO community, and have a zero tolerance policy. Our definition of hate speech is prejudice or hateful comments, slurs, or statements that promote violence or intolerance toward others because of the following:
      • Race.
      • Creed.
      • Color.
      • National Origin.
      • Gender.
      • Age.
      • Disability.
      • Sexual Orientation.
      • Lifestyle.
      • Any other personally identifying factors.
      Please help us ensure that everyone feels welcome and free to participate on the official ESO community forums.
    • Impersonation: We do not tolerate impersonation of any kind in the official ESO community, and take impersonation attempts very seriously when they do occur. Impersonation includes using a display name, photos, posts, or any other material with the intent to fool people into believing you are a ZeniMax Online Studios employee, another community member, a celebrity, or anyone else you are not.
    • Inappropriate Content and Language: Certain topics and subjects are deemed inappropriate and not permitted on the official ESO forums. Things that we consider inappropriate are usually illegal, extremely volatile or violent, obscene, vulgar, or simply inappropriate for an official game forum such as ours. Inappropriate content on the ESO forums includes, but is not limited to the following:
      • Extreme violence
      • Illegal substances and activities
      • Pirated copyright-protected material
      • Pornography and other sexually explicit topics
      • Real-world religion and politics
      • Tasteless, vulgar, or obscene material
      One specific term we’d like to call out, as well, is the term “gay.” It is never appropriate to use “gay” as a derogatory term.
    • Malicious Links: We do not tolerate the posting of malicious links on our forums, for any reason. This includes links to pornographic material, key-loggers, and browser hijackers, but also includes links to private game server sites, phishing scams, and sites that sell in-game currencies and power-leveling services.
      We greatly appreciate when our community members wish to report a harmful or misleading ESO-related site to us, but please do not do so on the official ESO forums. If you discover a site you want to report to us, please report them at https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/.
    • Names in Thread Titles: Please refrain from placing the names of ZeniMax Online Studios employees or ESO community members in your thread titles. Directing a thread at a specific individual, or otherwise using a thread to call someone out, is not considered constructive. If you need to get a hold of a specific community member, please send them a private message.
    • Naming-and-Shaming: We do not allow posts or threads that are created for the purpose of “naming-and-shaming” other community member(s). “Naming-and-shaming” is the act of creating a post to call out an individual or group by name, and making them the subject of public accusation, ridicule and/or shaming. Generally, naming-and-shaming involves an in-game situation and/or Terms of Service violation, which the ESO Community Team is unable to assist with. A certain amount of rivalry and competitive razzing is healthy for any game community, especially one with PVP elements, but naming-and-shaming goes well beyond that. It typically elevates to a point where the subject feels legitimately harassed. We believe that naming-and-shaming posts and threads can be abused and are very harmful to the community. We also don't feel that publicly calling out or accusing others by name on our forums is in spirit of the game or our community. If you genuinely believe someone has violated our Terms of Service, you should report them in-game via the support interface — do not bring the situation onto the official ESO community forums.
    • Personal Information: For the sake of your own identity protection and personal privacy, we ask that you please do not share any personal information in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. This also goes for sharing another community member’s personal information — doing so is not only considered malicious behavior, but it is a violation of our Terms of Service and something we take very seriously.
    • Petitions and Protests: We do not allow petitions or protests on our forums. Due to the fact that both promote the use of demands and replies that consist of “/signed” or little else, we feel that neither encourage nor allow for meaningful and constructive discussion. Instead of using a petition or protest, we recommend presenting your thoughts as a request or suggestion so everyone in the community can discuss it.
    • Role-Play/Fan Fiction God Modding: We support the fan fiction and role-playing communities on the ESO forum, and ask that you please respect your fellow writers and role-players by not “god modding.” God modding is the act of forcing another community member’s character into a situation they have not agreed to. If you wish to involve another person's character in a story or role-play scenario, please respect that individual’s wishes and get their permission first. Failure to do so is considered “god modding,” and is not allowed on the ESO forums.
    • Rude and Insulting Comments/Commentary: We understand that sometimes tempers rise, but it is never acceptable to resort to rude comments and insults. This goes for rude comments and insults directed at other community members, and ZeniMax Online Studios employees alike.
    • Selling, Trading, and Sharing Game Accounts: The act of selling, trading, or sharing your ESO account is a violation of our Terms of Service. As such, we also do not allow discussion about selling, trading, or sharing game accounts on our forums.
    • Spamming: Please do not post spam on the official The Elder Scrolls Online forums. Below are a few examples of what we define as spamming:
      • Posting the same message more than once.
      • Posting messages that are nonsensical or have no real content.
      • Posting messages or images large enough to disrupt the normal flow of conversation.
      • Reposting material that has been removed by a member of the ESO Team.
      Also, please refrain from posting the same topic in multiple areas of the forum, or cross-posting in an attempt to gain further views or replies. This is considered spamming, and the duplicate threads will be removed.
    • Thread Bumping: Please refrain from replying to discussion threads for the sole purpose of “bumping” them. This is considered to be a form of spam because it does not add to the discussion in a constructive or meaningful way. We understand that everyone would like to keep their discussion active and visible, but we encourage you to strive for meaningful and constructive posts instead of posts that consist of nothing more than “Bump!”
    • Trolling or Baiting: The act of trolling is defined as something that is created for the intent to provoke conflict, shock others, or to elicit a strong negative or emotional reaction. It’s okay and very normal to disagree with others, and even to debate, but provoking conflict, baiting, inciting, mocking, etc. is never acceptable in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. If you do not have something constructive or meaningful to add to a discussion, we strongly recommend you refrain from posting in that thread, and find another discussion to participate in instead. It is also not constructive or helpful to publicly call out others and accuse them of trolling, or call them a troll—please refrain from doing so. If you genuinely believe someone is trolling, please report the post or thread to the ESO Team, and leave it at that.

    Tips for how you can be an ESO Community Hero (Written and last edited by ZOS_GinaBruno at precisely 8:56PM, March 30th 2014.)
    Below are a few recommendations and tips to help you become one of the very best community members — a veritable hero — on The Elder Scrolls Online official community forums. These recommendations and tips also reflect the ESO core community philosophies.
    • Agree to Disagree: We have a very diverse community of individuals and groups who have a variety of interests, opinions, and backgrounds. Just like in every-day life, you will not agree with all the opinions you encounter here, and that’s okay. It’s perfectly acceptable to disagree, but please do not put other people down for their opinions, ideas, or suggestions. In most discussions, there is no right or wrong, just different angles, opinions, and interests.
    • Be Civil and Respectful: Being civil and respectful goes a long way, especially when involved in a heated debate. It is possible to be civil and respectful, even when you strongly disagree with someone. Please remember that everyone on these forums is a real person, like you, who is also here because they love The Elder Scrolls Online and want to talk about it.
    • Enjoy Yourself: Have fun, start interesting discussions, and participate in the community activities and discussions that excite you! You, our fans, set the tone and culture of this community. We’re here to listen, help, and foster that growing culture. We want you do enjoy being here as much as we enjoy having you!
    • Ignore Baiting: Sometimes, another community member will attempt to bait you into a response. Usually, this is to elicit some sort of negative or emotional reaction. Please try your best to recognize when this is happening, and ignore it. You may also report it to the ESO Team if the post or thread is violating our Code of Conduct.
    • Post in the Appropriate Area: Please do your best to post threads in the correct area of the forums. We will move any threads that are posted in the incorrect area, and leave an expiring redirect attached to them. We understand that everyone wants their thread to be seen and gets replies — posting them in the proper section is the best way to make sure that happens.
    • Report Violations: If you notice that another community member is violating our Code of Conduct, please report the post and leave it at that. Do not reply, try to correct their behavior yourself, or tell them that you reported them. We understand that our community members are generally just trying to be helpful when they do these things, but they only serve to exacerbate the issue more often than not.
    • Share Constructive Criticism: We want to hear your thoughts and feedback on The Elder Scrolls Online, negative and positive alike. Please consider how you are posting criticism. If you want to share suggestions or constructive criticism about The Elder Scrolls Online, please tell us about it. It is possible to be negative, respectful, and constructive at the same time. When submitting feedback, consider whether or not what you’re posting will be something the Dev Team can use to turn into real change — constructive negative feedback can be a powerful tool to help us improve the game. Remember, we really do want your feedback!
    • Use the Search Function: Please help us keep discussions as consolidated as possible by using the search function before you create a thread. This will help you to identify if there is already an ongoing discussion about the topic you’re interested in talking about.
    • Welcome New Community Members: Please remember that we were all new in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community at one time. Help us foster a welcoming and safe community by being helpful, kind, and considerate to those who are new to our community.
    • When in Doubt, Ask: If you’re unsure whether or not something is acceptable post or thread material for the official The Elder Scrolls Online community, please feel free to ask a moderator or member of the ESO Team. Simply send us a message — we’re here to help!

    Eso Forum Community Rules. (Adhere to it at all times & note it is a bit long if you go to view it.)
    Below is a brief explanation of the community rules and expectations for specific topics and situations. If you have any questions about the Community Code of Conduct, please email The Elder Scrolls Online Team at [email protected]

This goes for abusive and disruptive comments and behavior that are directed at a ZeniMax Online employee and ESO community members alike. Please remember to be respectful and constructive at all times on the forums, and help Zenimax maintain a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all.
    • Advertising: We do not allow advertising on our forums. This includes, but is not limited to advertisements and promotions for the following:
      • Outside businesses and services.
      • Other games.
      • Any venture that results in monetary profit.
      We do not consider the promotion of guilds, fan sites, and fan groups, or the activities and content thereof, to be advertising. Please feel free to let The Elder Scrolls Online community know all about your guild, fan site, or fan group! Simply keep in mind that you may not promote your guild, fan site, or fan group if you are looking to turn a monetary profit by doing so.
      • Bashing and Slanderous Comments: We do not permit the bashing of individuals (including ZeniMax employees), groups, or other companies on our forums. We believe that doing so is neither constructive nor in spirit of our game and community.

    If you use weapon crit pots, you'll get the same major buff as Toothrow's 5 piece (you can't double the buff). Some other options to consider:

    Leviathan you gain a total of 3590 to crit (~16.4%).

    Mechanical acuity will give you 100% crit for 5 seconds every 18 seconds. That works out to an average increase of ~27.8% crit (100%×5/18).

    Since light attacks are heavily influenced by max stat, hulking drauger would synergize perfectly with a werewolf build.

    If you want more weapon power because of all the werewolf buffs, automaton and hundings would be great options too.

    Happy hunting!

    Alpha-Lupi’s Notes & Commentary:
    Note that for now, it is primarily designed for Dragonknights. But over time, it will be optimised so that Every Class may be able to utilise the builds true prowess. if you feel there are some things worth discussing about the build, leave a comment, keep it on topic & in the time I get, we shall see where it leads. Remember: "You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink."[/quote]

    One set to test out/consider when you get to the stam sorc is Storm Master. The added shock damage in werewolf form can help proc implosion.
    2) 833 weapon crit
    3) 833 Weapon crit
    4) 129 weapon damage
    5) when you deal critical damage with a fully charged heavy attack, your light attacks deal additional 1333 shock damage for 20 seconds.

    Can confirm: Storm Master is pretty incredible on a Werewolf Sorcerer, along with Stormfist, for ALL the implosion results of Shock and Physical once 15% health cap hits on bosses.

    • Battle Roar (2/2): “In the Middle of Combat, at any time should your resources be at half or so, you may find that Transforming into a Werewolf through the werewolf transformation ultimate (300 ultimate.)will give you a huge chunk of Magicka, Stamina and Health back. For each point of Ultimate Spent, you restore 46 Health, Magicka And Stamina.”
    • Combustion(2/2): The 50% Increase to the Poisoned & Burning Debuffs is stupendous, but the added resource recovery when applying said debuff can carry over to werewolf form should one be using a weapon with a poison or flame Enchantment on it.
    • Elder Dragon(2/2): In addition to the 5% Health Recovery for each Draconic Ability slotted(does not work in Werewolf Form), It will increase the Range of all Instant Cast Melee Abilities, which may also uniquely apply to Infectious Claws and its morphs.
    • Scaled Armor(2/2): Increases Spell Resistance by 3300, equivalent to mitigating 10% of incoming Spell Damage.
    • Iron Skin(2/2): the 10% Added Damage mitigation while blocking is useful regardless of form, but if utilised correctly, it may just save your hide.
    • World in Ruin (2/2): It may not be beneficial in werewolf form, But The 25% Cost Reduction to all Poison Based Abilities makes it useful across the board before the transformation.
    • Warmth (2/2)
    • Searing Heat (2/2)
    • Burning Heart (2/2)
    • Eternal Mountain (2/2)
    • Mountains Blessing (2/2)
    • Helping Hands (2/2)

    Races:
    1. Orc:
      Notable Passives: Swift Warrior(4% Damage done with melee attacks, 12% Sprint cost reduction & 10% Increased Sprint Speed.), Brawny(6% Extra Max Health & Stamina) & Unflinching(5% Increased Healing Received & 20% Health Recovery).
    2. Redguard:
      Notable Passives: Wayfarer(Increased duration of any eaten food by 15 minutes.), Exhilaration(9% Added Stamina Recovery), Conditioning(10% Maximum Stamina) & Adrenaline Rush(Restore 792 Stamina once every 5 seconds when dealing Damage with a Melee Attack.)
    3. Imperial:
      Notable Passives: Tough(12% Max Health), Conditioning(10% Max Stamina) & Red Diamond(Melee attacks have a 10% chance to restore 6% of your Max Health.)

    Mundus Stone:

    Warrior: Notably, The Lover mundus without divine buffs can essentially be replicated with a legendary Sharpened Weapon as both have 2752 penetration, but interestingly, on a Two-Handed Nirnhoned Weapon, I found that The Warrior Stone beats the Nirnhoned Trait by 3 points of Weapon Damage as mentioned below.

    Two-handed weapon damage(legendary): 1571
    Two-handed weapon damage(legendary, Nirnhoned): 1806

    1571 + 15% Nirnhoned = 235 points on two-handed Weapon.
    The warrior grants 238 Weapon Damage without any divine traits.


    Fair warning: when doing Veteran DLC content, watch out for toxic players as a lot of them do not realise the true prowess of two-handed wielders.

    Also, use these abilities as you see fit to your particular play style because, if it works for you, then use it.

    Main hand:(Two-Handed.)
    X: Venomous Claw
    Y: Noxious Breath
    B: Brawler

    Werewolf Abilities
    X: Feral pounce
    Y: Hircines Rage
    B: Claws of Life
    LB: Deafening Roar
    RB: Howl of Despair
    LB-RB: Werewolf Berserker

    Werewolf Tips:
    • When using Deafening Roar in 4-12 Player Groups, it is best used when another player in the group uses an ability that immobilises mobs, such as Dark Talons, Gripping Shards, Encase, Etc. Ensuring they cannot escape the group when affected by the fear from Deafening Roar.
    • If your group members tend to use a lot of light attacks, consider using howl of despair for massive damage and granting your allies infinite use of empower for 5 seconds.
    • Feral Pounce is good for initiating combat or tackling long distance foes in unison with the blood rage Passive for even more time. However, it is only necessary when more than 10 meters away & is more useful when facing ranged targets as Feral pounce is the ideal Gap Closer.

    These will be added later on as there are many things one can do with each enemy encounter and as such, May not be Completely Cemented.

    Monster Sets:
    You will have full autonomy for which monster set you may wish to use, But I have compiled a list of sets for specific roles to play as well as giving you a slight insight to each of the Monster Sets listed. But remember, if it works well for “your” play style, then do it, as if your play style has a truly meaningful contribution to others, you will know your doing it right in your own way.
    1. Lord Warden (Solo & Group Survivability):
      ”An Extraordinary Monster set that excels quite well at survival,, with the 1st piece granting 2975 Physical/Spell resistance and the 2nd piece Grants a 50% chance upon taking damage, to summon a shadow orb for 10 seconds that increases the Physical & Spell resistance of the wearer and their allies within 8 meters by 3870, occurring once every 10 seconds. Combined with other buffs from another players abilities can make you and your team all the more harder to defeat.”
    2. Mighty Chudan (Enhanced Solo Survivability & Exceptional Hybridability with Lycanthropy):
      “A good Monster set whose helm can be acquired in the ruins of Mazzatun (shadows of the hist required.) which provides up to 2975 Physical & Spell resistance, and wearing both pieces Grants Major Ward/Resolve at all times, Increasing your Physical/Spell resistance by 5280 while also providing a health bonus. Essentially good for solo PvE’ers as this and the 1st piece bonus will stack with the added resistances of Savage Strength for Transformed Werewolf Players, allowing werewolves in Medium Armor to hit the Hard Cap of 33K resistances(with CP.) while also having that extra bit of health to survive more Devastating attacks. the only downside is that other sources of major Ward/Resolve such as the wardens frost cloak will not add any additional benefit and is otherwise not stackable with Mighty Chudan”
    3. Pirate Skeleton (Solo Survivability):
      ”Mostly useful in solo scenarios, The Pirate Skeleton set Adds 2975 Physical/Spell resistance on the 1st piece, but when both pieces are acquired and worn, taking damage to health (if the wearer survives) will turn you into a skeleton outside of werewolf form(cosmetically) and grants Major Protection and Minor Defile, Reducing your Damage Taken by 30% but reduces your health recovery and healing received by 15%, if in a group with someone that can grant you Major Ward/Resolve, you can expect Pirate skeleton to stack well for even more damage reduction.”
    4. Iceheart (Survivability & Small DPS:
      ”Not as Beneficial as other Monster Sets with resists, the added Spell Critical could be considered a small detriment to a werewolves capability, but its 2nd piece, not so much, dealing Critical Damage Grants a 20% chance to gain a damage Shield for 6 seconds that absorbs up to 8600 points of damage, while it holds, enemies within 5 meters take 770 frost Damage every 1 second, occurring once every 6 seconds. I decided to highlight this set because since damage shields benefit from resistances, this may give the Iceheart Monster set an unprecedented edge across many builds, not to mention the Frost Damage done by the set can chill enemies on rare occasions which reduces their damage done by 15% for a few seconds.”
    5. Swarm Mother (Melee Range Utility):
      Swarm Mother doesn’t get as much usage like the other Monster Sets do, but for werewolves, well now it does. Because the 1st piece Grants 129 Stamina recovery and the 2nd piece bonus, once every 1 second, when blocking an attack from an enemy that is further than 5 meters, you spin strands of spider silk to pull the enemy to you, making it easier to deal with enemies that use ranged attacks like mages, archers, etc.”
    6. Sellistrix (AoE DPS with Stun):
      ”When you deal Damage, you have a 10% chance to create an earthquake under the enemy that erupts after 1.5 seconds, dealing 5030+ damage to all enemies within 4 meters and stunning them for 3 seconds, this can occur once every 5.5 seconds (4 seconds if you count the eruption time as an interval.), not as much damage compared to most, but the stun lock makes it a worthy set to be listed.”
    7. Selene (Single Target Burst Damage): The Selene set grants your Direct Damage Melee attacks a 15% chance to summon the Spirit of Foulhide to maul the closest enemy in front of you for 12,000+ Physical damage after 1.3 seconds, on a side note, as it occurs once every 4 seconds, it would actually be 2.7 seconds because of the 1.3s attack window.
    8. Slimecraw (DPS increase): Slimecraw not only adds extra spell/weapon critical on the 1st piece, but it also grants minor berserk at all times, increasing your damage done by 8%, while it may render ability induced variations of minor berserk inert, it is useful in solo instances, another note to add is that the extra critical will be useful due to the percentage reduction prior to murkmire which reduces Spell precision and perfect strike from 12% to 9%.
    9. Molag Kena (Overkill DPS): While the first of two piece provides Additional Weapon & Spell Damage, for those who have plenty of resources & recovery, both pieces are recommended for Stronger Abilities in the form of high weapon/spell damage (At the expense of 20% extra ability cost.) good for your main hand as it can increase the overall damage output of your abilities while dual-wielding, but in turn, you may end up weaving a few more heavy attacks in the process. However, if other abilities are used between expiry intervals, one may be able to retain more resources before the sets activation.

    Main Armour Sets:
    Set 1: Bloodmoon (droppable medium set found in the March of Sacrifices.)
    Primarily utilised in werewolf form, this set Grants a stack of blood scent for 8 seconds, gaining 5 stacks will activate the bloodmoon buff for 5 seconds, granting up to 30% Increased Melee Light Attack Damage and 50% Increased Melee Light Attack speed, the bloodmoon effect can only occur once every 18 seconds (13 seconds if one counts the 5 second duration of the buff as an interval.)

    Set 2: Perfect Arms of Relenquen (Droppable Medium Armor set Found in Veteran Cloudrest.)
    The Arms of Relenquen makes your light and heavy attacks apply a stack of harmful winds to the target, dealing physical damage every 1 second for 5 seconds and stackable up to 20 times for even more damage, it also provides minor slayer on the 3rd piece which increases your damage done to Dungeon and trial monsters by 5%.
    trial beginners can find the standard arms of Relenquen set in the normal variant, but unlike the perfect Arms of Relenquen, the standard one does not have the added maximum stamina on the 5th piece alongside its mainline effect so it may be preferable to get the normal one before going for the perfect version.

    Set 3(Optional): Toothrow (droppable medium set found in the wayrest sewers.)
    Toothrow Grants Major Savagery at all times, Increasing your Weapon Critical rating by 2191, it also Grants 100 points of Weapon Damage on the side which is something the leviathan set cannot do, the Weapon Critical added from toothrow can increase the proc’ability of bloodmoon and can increase overall DPS as a whole.

    Main Hand: Relenquen Greatsword: Sharpened: Poison Damage Enchantment.

    Interesting Note: in comparison to some statistic analytics, the Warrior Mundus Boon has 3 points more Weapon Damage than a Nirnhoned Two-handed Weapon, sitting at 238 Weapon Damage while the Nirnhoned Trait Grants two-handed weapons 235 Weapon Damage at legendary quality. Thus the warrior takes slightly greater precedence than the Lover mundus, namely because the 2752 Physical/spell penetration can be similarly achieved on any two-handed Weapon with the sharpened Trait.

    Main Hand Backup: Relenquen Bow: Sharpened: Poison Weapon Enchantment.
    [/spoiler]

    Armor(advisable to have 5 Medium, 1 light and 1 Heavy):
    • (Light/Heavy) Helmet: Monster: Infused: Stamina Enchantment.
    • (Medium) Chest: Bloodmoon: Infused: Health Enchantment.
    • (Light/Heavy) Shoulders: Monster: Divines: Health Enchantment.

    Alpha-Lupi’s Notes & Commentary:
    Note that for now, it is primarily designed for Dragonknights. But over time, it will be optimised so that Every Class may be able to utilise the builds true prowess. if you feel there are some things worth discussing about the build, leave a comment, keep it on topic & in the time I get, we shall see where it leads. Remember: "You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink."

    shouldnt you have a website for this um stuff?

    Tips for how you can be an ESO Community Hero (Written and last edited by ZOS_GinaBruno at precisely 8:56PM, March 30th 2014.)
    Below are a few recommendations and tips to help you become one of the very best community members — a veritable hero — on The Elder Scrolls Online official community forums. These recommendations and tips also reflect the ESO core community philosophies.
    • Agree to Disagree: We have a very diverse community of individuals and groups who have a variety of interests, opinions, and backgrounds. Just like in every-day life, you will not agree with all the opinions you encounter here, and that’s okay. It’s perfectly acceptable to disagree, but please do not put other people down for their opinions, ideas, or suggestions. In most discussions, there is no right or wrong, just different angles, opinions, and interests.
    • Be Civil and Respectful: Being civil and respectful goes a long way, especially when involved in a heated debate. It is possible to be civil and respectful, even when you strongly disagree with someone. Please remember that everyone on these forums is a real person, like you, who is also here because they love The Elder Scrolls Online and want to talk about it.
    • Enjoy Yourself: Have fun, start interesting discussions, and participate in the community activities and discussions that excite you! You, our fans, set the tone and culture of this community. We’re here to listen, help, and foster that growing culture. We want you do enjoy being here as much as we enjoy having you!
    • Ignore Baiting: Sometimes, another community member will attempt to bait you into a response. Usually, this is to elicit some sort of negative or emotional reaction. Please try your best to recognize when this is happening, and ignore it. You may also report it to the ESO Team if the post or thread is violating our Code of Conduct.
    • Post in the Appropriate Area: Please do your best to post threads in the correct area of the forums. We will move any threads that are posted in the incorrect area, and leave an expiring redirect attached to them. We understand that everyone wants their thread to be seen and gets replies — posting them in the proper section is the best way to make sure that happens.
    • Report Violations: If you notice that another community member is violating our Code of Conduct, please report the post and leave it at that. Do not reply, try to correct their behavior yourself, or tell them that you reported them. We understand that our community members are generally just trying to be helpful when they do these things, but they only serve to exacerbate the issue more often than not.
    • Share Constructive Criticism: We want to hear your thoughts and feedback on The Elder Scrolls Online, negative and positive alike. Please consider how you are posting criticism. If you want to share suggestions or constructive criticism about The Elder Scrolls Online, please tell us about it. It is possible to be negative, respectful, and constructive at the same time. When submitting feedback, consider whether or not what you’re posting will be something the Dev Team can use to turn into real change — constructive negative feedback can be a powerful tool to help us improve the game. Remember, we really do want your feedback!
    • Use the Search Function: Please help us keep discussions as consolidated as possible by using the search function before you create a thread. This will help you to identify if there is already an ongoing discussion about the topic you’re interested in talking about.
    • Welcome New Community Members: Please remember that we were all new in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community at one time. Help us foster a welcoming and safe community by being helpful, kind, and considerate to those who are new to our community.
    • When in Doubt, Ask: If you’re unsure whether or not something is acceptable post or thread material for the official The Elder Scrolls Online community, please feel free to ask a moderator or member of the ESO Team. Simply send us a message — we’re here to help!

    Eso Forum Community Rules. (Adhere to it at all times & note it is a bit long if you go to view it.)

    Abusive Language and Disruptive Behavior: Zenimax do not tolerate abusive language or disruptive behavior on our forums. This goes for abusive and disruptive comments and behavior that are directed at a ZeniMax Online employee and ESO community members alike. Please remember to be respectful and constructive at all times on the forums, and help Zenimax maintain a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all.
    • Advertising: We do not allow advertising on our forums. This includes, but is not limited to advertisements and promotions for the following:
      • Outside businesses and services.
      • Other games.
      • Any venture that results in monetary profit.
      We do not consider the promotion of guilds, fan sites, and fan groups, or the activities and content thereof, to be advertising. Please feel free to let The Elder Scrolls Online community know all about your guild, fan site, or fan group! Simply keep in mind that you may not promote your guild, fan site, or fan group if you are looking to turn a monetary profit by doing so.
      • Bashing and Slanderous Comments: We do not permit the bashing of individuals (including ZeniMax employees), groups, or other companies on our forums. We believe that doing so is neither constructive nor in spirit of our game and community.
      • Conspiracy Theories and Misinformation: We do not tolerate the deliberate and malicious spreading of false info or conspiracy theories about ZeniMax Online Studios, its game(s), or its employees. This does not include honest mistakes; rather, this rule pertains to those who go out of their way to spread harmful or malicious rumors about ZeniMax Online Studios and its employees, or The Elder Scrolls Online.
      • Copyright Infringement: Names and Material: We do not allow copyright-protected names on our forums. Copyright-protected names are typically from well-known original characters in books, games, and movies. We also do not permit discussion about the illegal distribution or use of copyrighted material, such as private game servers or pirated movies, music, and games.
      • Cursing and Profanity: Purposefully circumventing our forum profanity filter or otherwise cursing or using profanity is not permitted on our forums. Our forums have a profanity filter in place for the purpose of keeping profanity off our forums — please help us keep the ESO community constructive and profanity-free by respecting that filter.
      • Demands and Threats: We encourage you to share feedback, suggestion, and requests with us, but we expect all of our community members to refrain from resorting to demands or threats. We believe that demands and threats are not constructive. Threats of real-life violence, in particular, are something we take very seriously and do not tolerate in the ESO community.
      • Deliberately Disobeying a ZeniMax Online Employee: Deliberately disobeying a request or action by a member of the ZeniMax Online Studios/ESO Team is not permitted at any time. As an example, if we close a thread you created and leave an explanation stating why it was closed, you may not re-create the thread.
      • Discussing Disciplinary Actions: If you ever have questions or concerns about a disciplinary action or decision we have made on the ESO forums, or wish to appeal a forum warning or infraction you’ve received, we ask that you please contact https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/ to do so (please specify that you are contacting about a forum-related inquiry or appeal). We are happy to discuss and review specific moderation-related actions with you, but we do not allow discussion of any moderation actions or decisions on our forums. If you have questions or concerns about an in-game disciplinary action, please contact https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/ to ask about a suspension or ban, and any other support-related feedback. We cannot assist with in-game violations on the forums.
      • Flaming: It’s okay to disagree and debate on the official ESO forums, but we do ask that you keep all disagreements civil, constructive, and on-topic. If a discussion gets heated and turns into a debate, remember that you should stick to debating the post and/or thread topic. It is never appropriate to resort to personal comments or jabs about those participating in the thread discussion.
      • Goodbye/Quitting Threads: We understand that sometimes people will leave the ESO community, and want to post a “goodbye” or “quitting” thread. Generally, we have found that “goodbye” and “quitting” threads have a tendency to go downhill fast. It is our policy to read the feedback in “goodbye” and “quitting” threads and close them, regardless of whether they are constructive or not.
      • Hate Speech: We take the use of hate speech very seriously in the official ESO community, and have a zero tolerance policy. Our definition of hate speech is prejudice or hateful comments, slurs, or statements that promote violence or intolerance toward others because of the following:
        • Race.
        • Creed.
        • Color.
        • National Origin.
        • Gender.
        • Age.
        • Disability.
        • Sexual Orientation.
        • Lifestyle.
        • Any other personally identifying factors.
        Please help us ensure that everyone feels welcome and free to participate on the official ESO community forums.
      • Impersonation: We do not tolerate impersonation of any kind in the official ESO community, and take impersonation attempts very seriously when they do occur. Impersonation includes using a display name, photos, posts, or any other material with the intent to fool people into believing you are a ZeniMax Online Studios employee, another community member, a celebrity, or anyone else you are not.
      • Inappropriate Content and Language: Certain topics and subjects are deemed inappropriate and not permitted on the official ESO forums. Things that we consider inappropriate are usually illegal, extremely volatile or violent, obscene, vulgar, or simply inappropriate for an official game forum such as ours. Inappropriate content on the ESO forums includes, but is not limited to the following:
        • Extreme violence
        • Illegal substances and activities
        • Pirated copyright-protected material
        • Pornography and other sexually explicit topics
        • Real-world religion and politics
        • Tasteless, vulgar, or obscene material
        One specific term we’d like to call out, as well, is the term “gay.” It is never appropriate to use “gay” as a derogatory term.
      • Malicious Links: We do not tolerate the posting of malicious links on our forums, for any reason. This includes links to pornographic material, key-loggers, and browser hijackers, but also includes links to private game server sites, phishing scams, and sites that sell in-game currencies and power-leveling services.
        We greatly appreciate when our community members wish to report a harmful or misleading ESO-related site to us, but please do not do so on the official ESO forums. If you discover a site you want to report to us, please report them at https://help.elderscrollsonline.com/.
      • Names in Thread Titles: Please refrain from placing the names of ZeniMax Online Studios employees or ESO community members in your thread titles. Directing a thread at a specific individual, or otherwise using a thread to call someone out, is not considered constructive. If you need to get a hold of a specific community member, please send them a private message.
      • Naming-and-Shaming: We do not allow posts or threads that are created for the purpose of “naming-and-shaming” other community member(s). “Naming-and-shaming” is the act of creating a post to call out an individual or group by name, and making them the subject of public accusation, ridicule and/or shaming. Generally, naming-and-shaming involves an in-game situation and/or Terms of Service violation, which the ESO Community Team is unable to assist with. A certain amount of rivalry and competitive razzing is healthy for any game community, especially one with PVP elements, but naming-and-shaming goes well beyond that. It typically elevates to a point where the subject feels legitimately harassed. We believe that naming-and-shaming posts and threads can be abused and are very harmful to the community. We also don't feel that publicly calling out or accusing others by name on our forums is in spirit of the game or our community. If you genuinely believe someone has violated our Terms of Service, you should report them in-game via the support interface — do not bring the situation onto the official ESO community forums.
      • Personal Information: For the sake of your own identity protection and personal privacy, we ask that you please do not share any personal information in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. This also goes for sharing another community member’s personal information — doing so is not only considered malicious behavior, but it is a violation of our Terms of Service and something we take very seriously.
      • Petitions and Protests: We do not allow petitions or protests on our forums. Due to the fact that both promote the use of demands and replies that consist of “/signed” or little else, we feel that neither encourage nor allow for meaningful and constructive discussion. Instead of using a petition or protest, we recommend presenting your thoughts as a request or suggestion so everyone in the community can discuss it.
      • Role-Play/Fan Fiction God Modding: We support the fan fiction and role-playing communities on the ESO forum, and ask that you please respect your fellow writers and role-players by not “god modding.” God modding is the act of forcing another community member’s character into a situation they have not agreed to. If you wish to involve another person's character in a story or role-play scenario, please respect that individual’s wishes and get their permission first. Failure to do so is considered “god modding,” and is not allowed on the ESO forums.
      • Rude and Insulting Comments/Commentary: We understand that sometimes tempers rise, but it is never acceptable to resort to rude comments and insults. This goes for rude comments and insults directed at other community members, and ZeniMax Online Studios employees alike.
      • Selling, Trading, and Sharing Game Accounts: The act of selling, trading, or sharing your ESO account is a violation of our Terms of Service. As such, we also do not allow discussion about selling, trading, or sharing game accounts on our forums.
      • Spamming: Please do not post spam on the official The Elder Scrolls Online forums. Below are a few examples of what we define as spamming:
        • Posting the same message more than once.
        • Posting messages that are nonsensical or have no real content.
        • Posting messages or images large enough to disrupt the normal flow of conversation.
        • Reposting material that has been removed by a member of the ESO Team.
        Also, please refrain from posting the same topic in multiple areas of the forum, or cross-posting in an attempt to gain further views or replies. This is considered spamming, and the duplicate threads will be removed.
      • Thread Bumping: Please refrain from replying to discussion threads for the sole purpose of “bumping” them. This is considered to be a form of spam because it does not add to the discussion in a constructive or meaningful way. We understand that everyone would like to keep their discussion active and visible, but we encourage you to strive for meaningful and constructive posts instead of posts that consist of nothing more than “Bump!”
      • Trolling or Baiting: The act of trolling is defined as something that is created for the intent to provoke conflict, shock others, or to elicit a strong negative or emotional reaction. It’s okay and very normal to disagree with others, and even to debate, but provoking conflict, baiting, inciting, mocking, etc. is never acceptable in the official The Elder Scrolls Online community. If you do not have something constructive or meaningful to add to a discussion, we strongly recommend you refrain from posting in that thread, and find another discussion to participate in instead. It is also not constructive or helpful to publicly call out others and accuse them of trolling, or call them a troll—please refrain from doing so. If you genuinely believe someone is trolling, please report the post or thread to the ESO Team, and leave it at that.
