The Endless Archive
The Endless Archive is a new dungeon-like experience developed to some sort of endless dungeon. Inside the archive you will face a lot of the bosses that can be found in places like Dungeons, Overland zones, Trials and more. Here is a full list of all Endless Archive bosses. In most cases, the mechanics of the bosses are trimmed-down versions of their original encounter, since the area you fight them in is smaller and you are either facing them alone or in a group of two.
You can also find two new merchants inside the Endless Archive. Filer Tezurs and Filer Ool. Tezurs has a static inventory that will make the Endless Archive easier thanks to certain buffs you can get from him. Filer Ool has a rotating inventory, similar to how the Luxury Vendor or the Golden Vendor works. That means he resets every week, we created a special page for Filer Ool where you can view his wares, make sure to bookmark it.
For an in-depth guide please read the Endless Archive Guide for ESO.
Class Item Sets for ESO
- Basalt-Blooded Warrior – Dragonknight, Earthen Heart
- Wrathsun – Templar, Dawn's Wrath
- Monolith of Storms - Sorcerer, Storm Calling
- Soulcleaver – Nightblade, Siphoning
- Gardener of Seasons – Warden, Green Balance
- Nobility in Decay – Necromancer, Bone Tyrant
- Reawakened Hierophant – Arcanist, Curative Runeform
Right now the fastest way to farm these is completing Arc 1 and then resetting the arena. The first Arc is the fastest one, therefore it makes sense you can get the most amount of item sets by running the first Arc.
