Guide to Crafted Sets




Many players wear 5 pieces of one set and several pieces of another to fill out their armor and weapon slots. These sets are all Bind on Equip, so can be made for you by another player if you've not yet completed sufficient research.

Wear 5 pieces of heavy armor, 1 piece of medium armor (hands), and 1 piece of light armor (waist) while at low levels; this provides the most armor rating while leveling all 3 armor skill trees. Once you reach the point that you can take advantage of passive armor skills that require 5 or more pieces in a given weight, switch to 5 pieces in your chosen armor weight and combine:

Overall Armor ClassAlso UseWith
Heavy Armor FocusMedium HandsLight Waist
Medium Armor FocusHeavy ChestLight Waist
Light Armor FocusHeavy ChestMedium Legs

Some traits (i.e. infused or reinforced) are best on large armor pieces that truly enhance the item stats such as chest, legs, & head. Other traits (i.e. divines or sturdy) give the same benefit regardless of the armor's size so are often placed on shoulders, hands, waist, & feet. For low level gear the training trait is often placed on all items.

You can only craft armor or weapons with a trait if you previously researched that chosen trait on the same item type/weight.

Each crafted set also requires completed research in several traits (the number varies based on the set) for each type of item you wish to create as part of the set; this is why crafters must research traits beyond those that are typically desired on crafted goods.




Some crafted sets are good for specific tasks:

However, choosing your best overall option(s) for your character would generally depend on your chosen role and main resource pool:

Generally the armor sets that drop in game are stronger, but craftable items can be readily available and still perform solidly aside from elite or end-game activites.

Other Craftable Options for Balancing Magicka & Stamina

These sets are generally ill-advised. However some sets otherwise defy classification so are best described here.

1 Removing this set, or obtaining a third Mundus Stone buff while wearing this set, will now remove the older of the current two Mundus Stone buffs instead of the newest one. (Morrowind Patch Notes)
2 This woodworking station is unnecessary since you'd not want to lose the second Mundus buff by weapon-swapping.

As a final note, let's consider what I keep on hand for quickly leveling a new character:

Ancient Dragonguard
or
Grave-Stake Collector

Good all-around sets to keep on hand for new characters; all Training trait in levels 4, 16, 28, 40.

Medium bracers (wrists) and Light sash (waist) alongside a Robust necklace & 2 Healthy rings.

Ancient Dragonguard:
  • 2 items: Add 1164-1206 Max Health
  • 3 items: Add 124-129 Weapon Damage
    and Add 124-129 Spell Damage
  • 4 items: Add 804-833 Weapon Critical
    and Add 804-833 Spell Critical
  • 5 items: Add 289-300 Weapon Damage and 289-300 Spell Damage while your Health is above 50%. Gain 3339-3460 Armor while your Health is 50% or less.
Grave-Stake Collector:
  • 2 items: Add 1058-1096 Max Magicka
  • 3 items: Add 1058-1096 Max Stamina
  • 4 items: Add 1164-1206 Max Health
  • 5 items: Enemies you've damaged drop a grave-stake for 6.1 seconds after their death. Touching the grave-stake restores 4044-4190 Stamina and Magicka. Only one grave-stake can appear at a time.

Enchant with Stamina or Magicka glyphs to suit your resource/weapon focus. (these can be easily changed to suit each character when passed down)

Vampire's Kiss

Again, all in Training but this time for levels 2, 10, 20, 30, 40.
For the most protection, make it Heavy armor in larger pieces (chest, legs, head, shoulders, feet).
  • 2 items: Add 124-129 Health Recovery
  • 3 items: Add 1164-1206 Max Health
  • 4 items: Add 4% Healing Taken
  • 5 items: Heal for 8492-8800 over 6 seconds when you kill an opponent
Enchant with Stamina or Magicka glyphs to suit your resource/weapon focus. (these can be easily changed to suit each character when passed down)

Pair these with whatever weapon suits your character from looting bodies or chests. Be sure to replace it often to keep it near your level!
