Where to Farm Overland Sets in ESO
You can get pieces from Overland Sets by completing specific activities in every zone. When in the right zone, head to the appropriate area and defeat the right enemy in order to drop the piece you are after. This is where you can find each piece for Overland Armor Sets in ESO:
- Delve Bosses have a chance to drop a Waist or Feet piece from Sets in the zone.
- Public Dungeon Bosses have a chance to drop a Shoulders, Hand or Weapon piece from Sets in the zone.
- Overland Bosses will always drop a Head, Chest, Legs or Weapon piece from Sets in the zone.

- Treasure Chests & Psijic Portals have a chance to drop any piece from Sets in the zone. These are valuable since chests are the only way to get Jewelry for some Overland Sets.
