Best in Slot: Earthgore Review

I wanted to post this video and a quick write up for a monster helm two piece in the Elder Scrolls Online called Earthgore.  You can get the helm for Veteran mode Bloodroot Forge in Craglorn (Horns of Reach DLC).  Below you’ll find the full video review and a quick summary of it’s strengths and weaknesses from my perspective.

+ Has amazing burst heal potential

+ Area effect so not just one person

+ Acts as a “negate” soaking up enemy ground effects

– Long cool-down

– Not great for end-game PvE (Trials/Dungeons) as it doesn’t offer a buff, resources or additional damage

– Can randomly proc off of fall damage

Thanks for viewing the ESO Earthgore Monster Helm review.  Is this Best in Slot?  I don’t think there’s a definitive answer, but in open world Cyrodiil large group PvP, I love it.

    Hello Deltia

    Welcome back to ESO!! Can you do a Nightblade Healer Build?

      Thanks. For PvP? Typically I just stick to my Templar but you can still heal effectively on a Nightblade now.

    Hey Deltia,

    Great update, I try it for a couple of days, and it’s so making me funny.

    How about the Battery Templer Healer, do you plan a update? I try my Templer Healer with combination Blood Forge Monster Set, Spell Power and Kagrenac, all sets together and it rocks ??

      Yes but I haven’t done much PvE so need to learn what’s useful.

    Hey Deltia, long time fan 🙂
    just wondering how you feel about the longevity of ESO at this point and where you see the game going player-base wise and content wise. I am kind of concerned about getting into it currently because it seems like we are getting more and more options for MMOs to play all the time and a lot of the long-term players seem to be complaining about the state of the game with all the nerfs and how it doesn’t feel as enjoyable. from what i have experienced so far the game looks really nice and everything feels fairly polished and i have already been invited into a guild with seemingly nice people that are just starting the guild up and have implemented no taxes on anything (store) and are trying to help everyone as much as possible. Basically as a new player i’m loving it and the community seems awesome but i like to put a lot of time into games so id like to get a perspective on how the game is going to be in the near future with hitting max level and raiding and PvP as well as get an idea of how players are feeling when they get there and if they are sticking around.

      I honestly feel like the player base that are playing now, will still play. Yeah they may come and go for certain games like I do (Destiny, ETC) but the same people are still playing. Also, check ESO’s social media, it’s huge. Is it the most popular game? No, but honestly I feel like it’ll be around for another 7 years. Hell, even Lord of the Rings came out with a expansion. Just my two cents.

    What guild did you end up in? And when are you playing? Semper Fidelis! 1993-2008

    Hey Delta you say this set is sub par in trials because of a lack of a buff, resources, or extra damage, but what Monster helms could a healer even use that would provide those benefits? Sentinel of Rkugamz is great for providing stamina to the team but I don’t know of any that effectively buff the team and a healer won’t be doing much additional damage no matter what Monster set they run

      There aren’t many to be honest. Experiment and see what works for you.
