ESO Werewolf tank build

ESO Werewolf Tank Build

The ESO Werewolf tank build is a fun build for those who love playing a werewolf. You will be nearly impossible to kill and look good while standing up to any boss. Updated June 8th, 2022.
It takes a bit of time to farm one of the sets needed for this to work, but the other can be bought for a little gold if you use Tamriel trade Center to locate the pieces.
Remember to get all leads for the Oakensoul Ring, it’s perfect for Werewolf builds in ESO.

If you want to go without group taunts, I recommend exchanging Tormentor With Beekeeper and using Sithis Mythic + 1 piece of training to get these stats.
But mind you, you will lose your ability to taunt while in Wolf form. But you will end up with 8358 Health Recovery fully buffed.

Race, Mundus & Consumables.

All races are viable but those who favor Maximum Stamina and Stamina Regeneration are better. You can see them all here in my 2021 Updated ESO Racial Passives guide.

Mundus: The Warrior.

Food buff: Any Tri-stat food buff will do, but you can check out my list of the 10 best Food Buffs in ESO here.

How can you become a werewolf in Elder Scrolls Online?

Can you become a werewolf in Elder Scrolls Online, and how?
There are two ways to become a Werewolf in ESO, the first and easiest is to have a player who are already a werewolf bite you at a Hirchine Shrine.
The other is to find a werewolf in the wild and get infected with lycantropy, then go to the shrine and do the quest.

If you are a vamipre you need to have that cured by a priest before you can become a werewolf in ESO.

You can always look at the Dragonknight Tank build that I use every day and is really fun to play, if you want to have that and the ESO Werewolf Tank build combined.
