Malacath’s Band of Brutality

The Malacath’s Band of Brutality Mythic Set is one of the Mythic Items that are available in The Elder Scrolls Online with the system of Antiquities. Mythic Items are special one-piece sets that offer unique effects to their wearer. Malacath’s Band of Brutality is a Ring that increases your damage done but decreases your Critical Damage done.

In order to discover Mythic Items you must have unlocked the Scrying and Excavation skill-lines. To unlock them you must own the Greymoor Chapter and complete the introductory quest for the Antiquities system. This will allow you to Scry for Leads that will lead you to excavation sites where you can find items or fragments of them. Mythic items are usually separated in fragments and you have to find all of them in order to get the complete item.

The higher the quality of an item you can find the higher the difficulty of scrying and excavating for it. Leads for Mythic Items have a Master Difficulty. Most of the time a Lead will guide you to a dig site in the area you have found it but in some cases Leads will send you somewhere else. A good example of this is Leads found in the Imperial City.

You can get Leads even if you do not own the Greymoor Chapter and have not unlocked the two skill-lines but you cannot use them without the Antiquities features, Scrying and Excavation. Leads disappear after thirty days and you will have to farm them again in order to find the item. This Malacath’s Band of Brutality Leads Guide will help you to find all the Leads necessary to create the item.

Malacath’s Brutal Might Loop

This Lead is a random drop from all Bosses in the Public Dungeon of Old Orsinium. The Public Dungeon is located in the zone of Wrothgar and the Orsinium DLC is necessary to access the area.

Malacath’s Brutal Ritual Dust

The lead drops randomly from the World Bosses located at Reaper’s Henge or Waterdancer Falls in the zone of Reaper’s March.

This Lead is a random drop from all Bosses in the Public Dungeon of Bonesnap Ruins. The Public Dungeon is located in the zone of Stormhaven and is available with the base game.

Malacath’s Brutal Rune Core

The hardest Lead to find for this Mythic Item, since it drops in The Imperial City from Patrolling Horrors in the City’s Districts. Patrolling Horrors are strong Overworld Bosses that require several players to defeat them. The extra danger of PVP in the area makes this Lead hard to get alone. This Lead will send you to the zone of Bal Foyen, to find its dig site.

Malacath’s Brutal Scourge Hoop

The easiest lead for this Mythic Item, since it drops from overland enemies in the starter zone of Betnikh. Easy to get alone.

How to Get Malacath’s Band of Brutality

Once you find all leads, head to the appropriate zone and excavate their fragments. When you excavate all five of them the Malacath’s Band of Brutality Mythic Set will appear in your inventory.
