Werewolf Tank Build Sentinel The Elder Scrolls Online

Werewolf Tank Build

Table of Contents


Sentinel is a Werewolf Tank Build, suitable for every Class and Tank. A fun Tank Build that is utilizing the Werewolf skill line to complete 4-man Dungeons mostly.

The Tormentor Armor Set is what makes the Werewolf viable as a Tank and for that reason is essential to the build.

For a Werewolf DPS PVE Build you can take a look at The Beast.

If you are a new player, take a look at my Vampire vs Werewolf Guide to understand the differences between the two skill lines.

Armor Sets

Lord Warden as Monster Set: A great Tanking monster set that increases both yours and your group’s resistances. Swarm Mother as an alternative to simulate a Pull ability in Werewolf form.

Tormentor: Essential for the Build to work. Can use it as Body Armor or Weapons and Jewelry.

Roar of Alkosh: Great group support set

For more Tank Sets you can take a look at my Best Tank Sets Guide.
