ESO Arena Weapons – Powerful Ability Altering Weapons

2021-01-12T09:31:06+00:00By |Categories: Guides|

Welcome to the ESO Arena Weapons & Ability Altering Weapons Guide. Ability altering weapons only drop in specific places, they usually exist in perfected and imperfected versions. The perfect version has one extra bonus, but the main effect is equal on both. Therefore there is only a small difference in power between the versions.
