Online:Defending

Elder Scrolls Online: Traits

Defending is a trait which can only be found on weapons. Once you have researched the trait on a given item type, you can craft Defending weapons by using ON-icon-trait material-Turquoise.png Turquoise. Items with the Defending trait will increase your Physical and Spell Resistance by an amount dependent on the level and quality of the item. 2-handed weapons provide twice the bonus of 1-handed.
