Cinders of Anthelmir

Cinders of Anthelmir Features and Set Bonuses in ESO:

  • Name: Cinders of Anthelmir
  • Type: Dungeon Set
  • Available Armor Weight: Light Armor, Jewelry, Weapons
  • Location: Bedlam Veil
  • Requires DLC: Scions of Ithelia
  • Armor Set bonuses (Level 50 – CP 160):
    • 2 items: Adds 1487 Offensive Penetration
    • 3 items: Adds 129 Weapon and Spell Damage
    • 4 items: Adds 129 Weapon and Spell Damage
    • 5 items: On dealing damage, summon a Cindermoth that chases your target without mercy for 8 seconds. If your target is slain before the moth reaches its goal, it seeks a new target within 8 meters. The first enemy that nears the Cindermoth causes it to stop and burst after 1 second, dealing 1283 Flame Damage and Burning enemies within 8 meters. This can occur once every 8 seconds and scales off your Weapon or Spell Damage.

In ESO, the Cinders of Anthelmir set offers five set bonuses and belongs to the light armor category. The first three bonuses on the Cinders of Anthelmir set offer moderate increases to offensive penetration, along with weapon and spell damage. The final five-piece bonus triggers a Cindermoth summon every 8 seconds when you deal damage. This Cindermoth will target a nearby enemy and chase it down, until it is close enough to explode.

Based on the tooltip, it appears that triggering this 5-piece effect is very simple. “On dealing damage” means any type of damage, done by weapon, magic or ability. The Cinermoth you summoned automatically targets whichever enemy you hit with said damage.

Once the Cindermoth is close enough to the target, it will stop and then explode one second later causing Flame Damage and Burning to all enemies within an 8 meters radius. So, the explosion is an area-of-effect attack, assuming you are fighting more than one enemy.

How to Use Cinders of Anthelmir Set in PvE and PvP?

The nice thing about the Cinders of Anthelmir set is that everything triggered by the 5-piece bonus happens automatically, as you are doing damage in your regular rotation. This set is not likely to change the current meta either within player vs environment (PvE) or player vs player (PvP) settings. However, it is a fun set with a neat summons that has a very cool area-of-effect graphic. Overall, for roleplayers, this may be a be a set they love to use with their Bear-ultimate Warden character.


Although the Cinders of Anthelmir is not likely to replace any of the high-end meta sets in the game, this set could be useful for solo players questing in the overland world. There the Cindermoth could be an additional AOE to help take down random mobs of enemies. Moreover, this could also apply to dungeon or trial mobs. Additionally, with the recent changes to status effects, the guaranteed Burning condition could be impactful.


Again, the great thing about this set is that the summon and area-of-effect explosion are automatically triggered. By simply doing damage, you will regularly summon your Cindermoth, and it will find a target on its own. Newer players could see a benefit from having one less thing to manage or direct on the busy and ever moving battlefields of Cyrodiil. However, those same newer players should really be prioritizing survivability and sets which can help keep them alive longer. It’s possible that this set might find some niche use with players somewhere in the middle, but it likely won’t make much impact on the current meta.
