Crafters in Elder Scrolls Online can earn ESO gold not just through Elder Scrolls Online items. They can also earn gold through the Traits system. Crafter or not however, Elder Scrolls Online account holders need to know which Traits do what to save their hard earned TESO gold. While a previous guide covered traits for Elder Scrolls Online weapons, this one will cover Elder Scrolls Online armor.
Saving ESO gold with traits
ESO account holders can save Elder Scrolls Online gold by choosing the Traits of their armor and items carefully. The Sturdy Trait given by Quartz makes the armor take less durability damage which can save players gold for repairs. Meanwhile, Reinforced armor with Sardonyx can increase the armor value for better damage mitigation. Diamonds can also help with damage mitigation through the Impenetrable Trait. This improves critical hit resistance for armor, which is a must when dealing with Nightblades and critical damage based builds.
Traits for curious ESO gold hunters
Exploration is a big part of the game, as evidenced by the Veteran Rank content. Thankfully, there are armor Traits that can help players in this regard. The Well-fitted Trait from the Almandine material helps reduce the cost of sprinting. Garnets bestow Exploration which directly improve experience gains from exploration. Lastly, those who are trying to gain experience in Armor Skill lines should get the Training Trait. Emeralds give this skill line experience boosting Trait.
Better effects for more ESO gold
Like with most equipment, armor can be given enchantments and Mundus Stone effects. These can be improved with the right Trait. For better enchantment effects on armor, take a Bloodstone and apply an Infused Trait on your armor. To get the most from Mundus Stones, consider using the Divines Trait. The latter can be applied to your armor by using Sapphire in the crafting process.
