This will function as a small guide on how to improve your damage mitigation in the different trials through your Red Champion Point trees. Keep in mind, every Trial in ESO has a slightly different allocation of Champion Points 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 Point Setups.
