ESO Ayleid Refuge Explained With How to Get Instructions

Overall, you’ll easily get the Ayleid Refuge set from doing overland content, but you probably won’t run it anywhere. This is because of how damage mitigation works in ESO. There’s a lot of complexity to it, but damage mitigation is all multiplicative. For this reason, damage mitigation is less and less effective, the more you have.

Tanks can obviously already get quite a lot of damage mitigation. Because of this, they usually pick 5-piece bonuses that benefit the rest of the group instead of their survivability.

Player vs. Environment (PvE) – You’ll probably never want to run this in PvE content, since you can bring so many other sets that buff your group. While survivability is nice, damage is also a kind of a form of survivability in PvE content. For instance, the faster something dies, the less damage it gets to do to the group. With such a small buff from Ayleid Refuge in ESO, there are just better options to run.

Player vs. Player (PvP) – Keeping Ayleid Refuge up in PvP could be better, but keep in mind this effect takes up an entire 5-piece bonus. If this were a mythic, it could see some play, but it doesn’t offer enough survivability on its own to be worth running in PvP.
