The Blind

The Blind Features and Set Bonuses in ESO:

  • Name: The Blind
  • Type: Monster Set
  • Available Armor Weight: Medium Armor, Light Armor, Heavy Armor
  • Location: Oathsworn Pit
  • Requires DLC: Scions of Ithelia
  • Armor Set bonuses (Level 50 – CP 160):
    • (1 item) Adds 657 Critical Chance
    • (2 items) Critically healing yourself or an ally grants them a Hydroglass Damage Shield that absorbs up to 2692 damage for 6 seconds. While the Damage Shield holds and for 3 seconds after it ends, the target gains Minor Force, increasing their Critical Damage done by 10%.

In ESO, The Blind is a monster set, meaning it only has two pieces: helmet and shoulders, and both are available in medium, light, and heavy armor options. First Bonus for this set ads additional critical chance.

How to Use The Blind Set - ESO Scions of Ithelia DLC - Effect

When you heal yourself or a friend, they get a protective shield that can absorb damage. While the shield is active, you take less damage. After 3 s it’s gone, the person also gets a boost in the damage they do with critical hits. It’s a “named buff” called Minor Force, so any other source of Minor Force will not increase the critical damage. You can have only one of each type of buff applied to you simultaneously.

How to Use The Blind Set in PvE and PvP?

PvE: In PvE, damage dealers usually have several ways to get Minor Force. Many use the Velothi Ur-Mage’s Amulet and keep up Barbed Trap throughout a fight. The Blind Visage likely won’t be widely used in PvE, except maybe for a single piece to boost critical chance.

PvP: However, it could find some use in PvP. Offering a damage shield, occasional Minor Force, and a boost to Critical Chance makes it a versatile choice for those seeking a bit of everything from a monster helm.

You can get The Blind headpiece for killing the final boss in Oathsworn Pit on veteran difficulty. While The Blind shoulder piece is in Scions of Ithelia Coffer, sold by Urgarlag Chief-bane.


Map Location in The Reach, Oathsworn Pit dungeon - ESO Scions of Ithelia DLC

To enter the dungeon, you need to own the Scions of Ithelia DLC or have an active ESO Plus subscription. Oathsworn Pit is a group dungeon in ESO; you will need a group of four players, preferably one healer, one tank, and two damage dealers. Next, head to the Reach, a cold region in northwest Tamriel. The entrance to the dungeon is north of Druadach Mountains Wayshrine and east of the Deep Folk Crossing.

Monster helmets only drop from the last boss on Vteran or Hard Mode difficulty. Your group must defeat Arados, the final boss, and then loot his body. Each player will receive a separate loot containing one monster helmet per player. It’s worth noting that players, for a limited time, may trade the helmets and other dungeon-specific sets with each other. However, once the set is bound to the specific player, it can no longer be traded. You also cannot sell monster helmets to players who didn’t take part in defeating the final boss.


ESO Undaunted Enclave maps

You can buy The Blind Shoulders from Urgarlag Chief-bane, who is one of the Undaunted Pledge Masters. Undaunted Pledge Masters, also called Undaunted Vendors, sell Coffers containing shoulder pieces of various Monster Helm Sets. They are located in the Undaunted Enclaves in each Alliance capital (base game):

  • Elden Root (Grahtwood region): the Enclave in Aldmeri Dominion territory
  • Wayrest (Stormhaven region): the Enclave in Daggerfall Covenant territory
  • Mournhold (Deshaan region): the Enclave in Ebonheart Pact territory

As mentioned, Urgarlag Chief-bane is an Ork lady who sells the Scions of Ithelia Coffer for 5 monster keys. Once you open the box, inside will be a shoulder piece of random armor weight in one of two monster sets available in Scions of Ithelia DLC: Anthelmir’s Construct or The Blind. So it may take a few coffers before you get the set you need.

How to Get Monster Keys

Trade Undaunted Keys
Trading Undaunted Keys with Urgarlag Chief-bane

Five monster keys are easy to get. Monster keys are a currency found in your inventory currency tab, and you can earn them from pledge masters for completing so-called pledges. Pledges reset each day, requiring you to complete the specific dungeon and defeat the last boss inside. Completing it on normal or veteran difficulty will earn you one key. However, completing a hard mode (additional task) on the veteran difficulty will give you two keys. Those hard mode tasks vary depending on the dungeon, but they can include ensuring that a defined NPC survives or that you must use a specific boss mechanic.

Each day, two base game dungeons and one DLC dungeon are available as a pledge. As a result, you can earn 6 Monster Keys daily. Remember that DLC dungeons are usually harder than base game dungeons, especially on Hard Mode difficulty, and require an active ESO Plus subscription or for you to own specific DLC.
