Heavy Armor is a skill in Elder Scrolls Online. It consists largely of plate armors. As with the other armor skills, there are only passive skills and a single active ability. These skills generally aid "tank" characters— those who require a lot of health.

Learning[edit]

The Heavy Armor skill line is granted the first time you equip 3 pieces of Heavy Armor. You can increase your skill by taking or blocking damage while wearing Heavy Armor, or earning experience with the Immovable skill slotted. The more pieces you are wearing, the faster your skill will increase. In addition, you can earn free levels in the skill line by reading Skill Books, which may be found randomly on bookshelves anywhere. The skill books which increase Heavy Armor are:
