This will function as a small guide on how to improve your damage mitigation in the different trials through your Red Championpoint Trees. Keep in mind, every Trial has a slightly different allocation of Championpoints to maximize the damage mitigation. Most damage that you receive in trials is direct damage, keep that in mind.

You will find red champion points for 810, 510 and 300 Champion Points Setups.

Mending Set

Make sure to run one Mending Set in your group, it reduced all the damage of PvE mobs, because all mobs no matter whether they are magicka or stamina scale of weapon damage. It reduces damage on trashpacks by about 20-30% and boss damage between 10-15%.  Just make sure to stay in the 10 meter range, otherwise the debuff will not be applied.
