Magicka Templar Build “Beamplar”

Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Templar Build “Beamplar” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.

The “Beamplar” build is made for PvE Trials & Dungeons. However, it also works great for Solo-content as Templars have great healing output while they are dealing damage! No Maelstrom Weapons required!

General Information

Magicka Templars are currently one of the strongest setups in Elder Scrolls Online as long as they are fighting in melee range. Shielding with Harness Magicka makes survival also pretty easy! Magicka Templars are also the only Magicka setup that can efficiently play with a Dualwield setup on their Mainbar. However, if you would like to use a double Destruction Staff set, that also works. The Best in Slot gearsetup with the Moondancer setup allows us to have very good sustain. In case you do not have that set, no worries. Even without the set sustain is still great as long as we are using Channeled Focus!

No Maelstrom Weapons needed!
High single target (ST) damage
Insane melee damage
High area of effect (AoE) Damage
Crazy sustain
Easy survivability due to magicka shield
Trials, Dungeons, Solo & Open World, it works everywhere!

 

Gear [Best in Slot]

In case you do not have two Moondancer Swords, do not worry. Use two Willpower Swords sharpened instead. It is basically the same damage. You will still have great sustain on Bossfights. However, on trashfights I do recommend that you are running Channeled Focus if you are using Willpower Swords.

Gear [Beginner]

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential for this Magicka Templar build. All the gear here is either craftable or cheap to get in a guildstore. Make sure to ask a friend to craft Twice Born Star and Julianos gear for you. I do recommend that you are aiming for 17k health. To achiev this you can buy one or two Willpower rings with a healthy trait.

Why Double Destro? The reason why we choose double destro is to have better resource management. You can do Shock heavy attacks which deal insane damage and you also return Magicka at the same time.

Why Elemental Rage on front bar? We need the Ultimate there to get the 8% Damage from the Destruction Staff passive.

Why Blazing Spear on the Fire Staff bar? You want to throw the blazing Spear and then immediately weapon swap, so it gets the damage bonus on the Shock bar+
