A look at all the new Class Specific Sets that come with Update 40

Today we are going to take a quick look at all seven new Class Based Sets in ESO. These will launch with Update 40. The info here is taken from the test server and may therefore change until the release of Update 40.

We also created a new category for these sets: Class Sets Category

You can also already use the new sets in the ESO Build Editor and you might already find some builds with them on the Community Builds page.

The new Class Based Sets will drop inside the new Endless Archive which also launches with Update 40. You can also find our work-in-progress guide here: Endless Archive Guide.

Future Class Based Sets

You may have noticed that the new sets have different functions. Some of them work great with a tank or with a healer. Some of them are meant for DPS. Right now each class only gets one set, therefore it sort of creates an imbalance.

However, we are fairly certain that we will be seeing more of these new Class Based Sets in the future with new updates for ESO (The Elder Scrolls Online). Let's see what the future holds and happy hunting!
