Hel Ra Citadel trial is located in West Craglorn in Elder Scrolls Online. Trials are special PvE group instances in Elder Scrolls Online, which can be identified by the trial-eso-dungeon icon.  They have special mechanics and group tactics for 12-player groups to accomplish, and present unique rewards for players. There is no lockout for trials but you only get 36 rezzes for your entire trial death. Each death will add additional minutes to your trial timer. Once you run out of 36 rezzes, you have to zone out, disband your group, reform and retry all the way from the beginning..
