Crafted Item Sets Guide

ESO Crafted Item Sets Guide

In The Elder Scrolls Online, players have the opportunity of wearing items sets. These sets give special bonuses to the player: some of them have a 3 items bonus and others have bonuses  for 3 items and 5 items.  Also, you can improve the set items quality like you would for any other items and enchant them with glyphs. Some of the set bonuses scale with the item level and quality while others are fixed.

Types of item sets

There are 3 types of items sets in ESO:

- Crafted item sets - these can be crafted by Clothiers, Blacksmiths and Woodworkers (obviously the required profession depends on the type of item you want to craft).
- Dropped item sets - these can be found throughout Tamriel as drops from mobs and bosses and are not craftable. The set items’ quality can be improved by the appropriate crafters.
- PVP item sets - some can be acquired as random drops from PVP reward boxes while others can be purchased directly, using Alliance Points from merchants in Cyrodiil.

Item sets mixing & matching

ESO provides a lot of freedom when it comes to wearing item sets. First of all, you can wear multiple types of armor from the same item set and still get the bonus(es). Secondly, you can get bonuses from multiple item sets. How many depends not just on your personal preferences but also on your weapon choice. 2-handed weapon wearers have only 8 item slots, while those who are dual wielding (1h/1h) or using 1-hand and shield have 9 item slots. As a result, the following combinations are possible:

Dual Wield/1-Hand and Shield

- 3 items set+ 3 items set+ 3 items set OR

- 3 items set+ 5 items set

Two Handed

- 3 items set + 3 items set OR

- 3 items set + 5 items set

These are the possible set bonuses combinations, but only for craftable sets. There are several non-craftable sets that have bonuses for 3,4 and 5 items. Also, some sets include jewelry (rings and neck), which could add up to 3 more item slots. The only problem with jewelry is that for now it can’t be upgraded so you must find it at the appropriate quality, which is a bit more difficult.

Boots of Hist BarkHow To Craft Item Sets

There are a few requirements for the craftable item sets, that you must meet in order to craft them (besides materials):


Each set has a number of traits you must have discovered for any item of the set you want to craft. The sets with the lowest requirements need only 2 traits researched, but they can go as high as 8 traits. For example, if you want to craft a helm from the Death’s Wind set, you need to have 2 traits discovered for helms (any 2 traits). This is a major incentive for players to research traits, since it’s a lengthy process, even for dedicated crafters.

Crafting Stations

Set items can’t be crafted at the regular crafting stations located in towns. There are special crafting stations for each of the craftable item sets (1 per faction). The Clothing station, Blacksmithing station and Woodworking station for each item set can be found at the same location. Crafting stations for 8 traits item sets are located in Coldharbour, The Earth Forge and Eyvea but cannot be reached unless you’ve progressed far enough through the main quest line, Fighter’s Guild quest line and Mages Guild quest line, respectively.

    I actually knew about jewelry set items but I wasn't thinking about them when writing this guide. Thanks for reminding me :)

    Very informative , thanks a lot.
    You could add that, when mixing crafted sets and looted set, you can have more than 9 slots.
    At least 2 sets include rings and/ or necklace : warlock set (3 pieces, including neclace and ring) and sanctuary set (3/5 pieces, including a ring, AFAIK)
